"Much as he did in his 1990s documentaries SEVILLANAS and FLAMENCO, this veteran Spanish director has, in his latest, created both a tribute to an art form and a performance archive."New York Times 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Spanish director Carlos Saura's celluloid songbook will speak to ethnomusicologists and cineastes alike."Box Office "[Saura, who] specializes in elegantly composed performance films, celebrates the bluesy, soul-baring Portugese musical genre known as fado." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly "[T]here's certainly unfettered passion flowing through each one of the nearly 20 musical numbers in FADOS..."Washington Post "Saura uses mirrors, scrims, silhouettes, layered images, back projection, overhead shots -- all highly theatrical devices -- yet places them always at the service of the music, singing and dancing; never is his film less than cinematic."Los Angeles Times

DVD Cria Cuervos
"...Beautifully acted, haunting....A movie of marvelous moments and two superb performances..." New York Times "One of the most important films in Saura's long career, CRIA CUERVOS powerfully conjures the commingling of past and present, fantasy and memory."Sight and Sound
DVD Goya en Bordeos
"...[A] visual knockout of a film....[Maribel Verd] radiates danger and a wild, hot-blooded sensuality..."New York Times "...GOYA IN BORDEAUX often evokes a fluid cinematic space analogous to the free-floating world of the artistic imagination..."Sight and Sound "...Ravishing cinematography, which effectively brings Goya's paintings to life..."Box Office "...Superb, contemplative....[With] a stunning, surreal dimension...and a glorious free-flowing quality..."Los Angeles Times "...Lushly photographed and grandly conceived..."Chicago Sun-Times
