I love this movie. As it says in the beginning it is not a historical retelling of Diane Arbus' life but a tribute and what an interesting tribute indeed. I was absolutely engrossed with this movie. It was beautiful, riveting and I think Nicole Kidman and Robert Downey Jnr were terrific in their portrayal of these great characters.
Even after all that though this isn't for anyone. It's more... read more

“I love this movie. As it says in the beginning it is not a historical retelling of Diane Arbus' life but a tribute and what an interesting tribute indeed. I was absolutely engrossed with this movie. It was beautiful, riveting and I think Nicole Kidman and Robert Downey Jnr were terrific in their portrayal of these great characters.

Even after all that though this isn't for anyone. It's more arthouse then anything and sure it's a fantastic movie but I don't think everyone is going to appreciate it.” read more

“Turning her back on her wealthy, established family, Diane Arbus (Nicole Kidman) falls in love with her neighbour, Lionel Sweeney (Robert Downey Jr.). He soon will introduce Diane to the marginalized people who help her become one of the most revered photographers of the 20th century.

Downey is not believable in his character, and it seems that he believes he's more important than anyone else. Kidman seems wan and vague. I doubt that Diane Arbus was that way. But since this is just "an imaginary portrait"...

Some compare this movie to Cocteau's "La Belle et la Bête" - perhaps in a way, yet I maintain that this is an insult. Cocteau's film was brilliant and should not be compared to anything. Other reviewers mention Kubrick, Hitchcock. I fail to see this comparison.read more
