  • Critic Reviews
    "Watching TETRO, Coppola's first original screenplay in some 30 years, is like eavesdropping on someone's dream."
    Film Comment

    "It has style to burn, eye-catching acting by an international cast and a story that harkens back to many literary classics with its themes of a family torn apart, brothers in conflict and a son's rivalry with a towering father figure."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[H]aunting....In TETRO, it is the seductive power of artistic genius and fame that will both leave a family broken and bind its wounds."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[A] visually lush cinematic fugue about love, ambivalence and two brothers fleeing the dark shadow of their domineering father..."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n arthouse gem starring Vincent Gallo as Tetro, the eldest of two brothers wrestling with their estranged father's legacy in Buenos Aires....Coppola extends a timeless magic to the film..."
    Box Office

    "TETRO turns out to be not one movie but, at the very least, two -- a Fellin-esque concatenation of drama, dance and opera, and a modest, appealing coming-of-age story..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[W]eirdly riveting....As Bennie, Ehrenreich exquisitely portrays the target of Coppola's experiment..."

    "TETRO again asserts Coppola's willingness to go far out on a limb stylistically....As a filmmaker, Coppola is once again at the height of his powers..." -- Grade: B
    A.V. Club

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Shot in Argentina with widescreen black-and-white images that take your breath away, TETRO is a drama about family secrets....There isn't a frame of this raw and riveting movie that Coppola doesn't invest with feeling."
    Rolling Stone

    "[With] shimmering black-and-white photography....You have to admire the sheer defiant energy of the man."
    Sight and Sound

    3 stars out of 5 -- "There is an air of melancholy reinforced by the tango music and by the black and white cinematography, heavy on the chiaroscuro."
