What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Laura Bushell Despite noteworthy attention to period detail in production and costume design, these are not enough to carry the film's confused plot.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Like the Goya prints being examined by the good fathers of the Inquisition in the opening scene, the images stand on their own, resisting the pull toward narrative, yet adding up to a portrait of grotesque people debased by their society.
James Berardinelli The film isn't quite bad enough that it can be appreciated on that level. The costumes and set design are top notch and there are occasional scenes that hit the mark, although not nearly enough of them to justify the price of admission. On the whole, Goya's Ghosts feels like a missed opportunity.
Tomatometer Ornate costumes and a talented cast can't make up for Ghosts' glacial pace and confused plot.
