Critic Reviews for The Magus
It is surprising how the movie (which was shot, incidentally, in Majorca without the Greek crisis in mind) is not embarrassing, but actually dovetails with yachtings and oppressions in contemporary Greece.
By...clinging to the original book it suffers from the same pitfalls, mainly the preposterous plot twists and suffocating sense of self-seriousness.
The Magus not only suffers from [director Guy] Green's lack of intuition and precision (that is, everything that separates a didacticist from an artist), but also from Fowles' directly transcribed literary illusions.
Audience Reviews for The Magus
This movie is pretty interesting and mysterious until you get to the horrible ending. I liked Caine in the movie, but that's about it. This movie is so-so.
