Critic Reviews for Nine Lives
Each woman has to turn herself inside out in continuous time. It has the demands of theatre and the intimacy of cinema.
The stories are sketches, often without resolution, and while individual segments succeed admirably, taken together the portraits are a fitful match.
Some parts are stronger than others, but as a fleshed-out artistic vision, Nine Lives works remarkably well.
If only every women's movie had Nine Lives' fire, intelligence, and conviction, they wouldn't have such a shaky reputation in the first place.
Nine Lives is an elegant film of quick, tour-de-force acting turns, a simple actor's gesture that tells you more than four pages of dialogue, a movie that demands concentration but that rewards the viewer willing to pay attention.
Audience Reviews for Nine Lives
Let's gather the best possible talent we can and then put them in the most aimless, depressing situations that have no resolution that we can. UGH! Would be one star if not for the talent involved.
The concept is not original at all, that's probably why it has such a low average. If you've seen Crash and Magnolia and you liked it, than I don't see why you wouldn't like this one. Some good solid acting and 'drama for your mama'.
Couldn't keep my attention very well. Although, like most movies filmed this way... I like to watch how the stories intertwine.
