Movie Reviews

  • this "West Side Story", though, is at its best when it zooms in and settles down into character study
    2.5 of 4 by Dan Rubins [Slant Magazine ]
  • there's a substrata of genius-level artists at work here: from Spielberg himself, who delivers his best film in nearly 20 years, to the late, great Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and William Shakespeare – and you can really feel it
    5 of 5 by Phil de Semlyen [Time Out New York ]
  • Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story" is an ecstatic act of ancestor-worship: a vividly dreamed, cunningly modified and visually staggering revival
    5 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story" has a brash effervescence. You can feel the joy he got out of making it, and the kick is infectious; it's a parade of delights
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • Spielberg's first musical is a revelatory riff on a beloved classic; The filmmaker honors a sacred piece of musical theater by flexing all over it with some of the most exhilarating setpieces he's ever shot, but there are a handful of puzzling missteps
    Review rate : B+ by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • if you know the original "West Side Story" pretty well, watching this one is fascinating, like getting reacquainted with an old friend who now looks quite different
    3.5 of 4 by Moira McDonald [Seattle Times ]
  • heartfelt and heart-breaking, this feels like Steven Spielberg has made an adaptation faithful to its roots but also, always, alive to the modern world
    5 of 5 by Helen O'Hara [Empire Magazine ]
  • "West Side Story" is visually entrancing, emotional, and the choreography and staging magnetic even when certain aspects of the story don't always work
    3 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
