4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, but a rich treat for some, November 21, 2006
This review is from: The Magus (DVD)
After decades of believing I was the only person in the world who likes this movie, I was shocked to discover that I am not unique. I had assumed that my copy was the only one in the world, snatched in the dawn of the VCR age from a very late night local airing. What IS unique is this movie. It clearly is not for everyone. It doesn't follow any safe formula, and seems to be cliche-free. The Magus appeals to people who think with bona fide independence, the kind who write in their choice for President, knowing that it is extremely unorthodox to do so. I was shocked and still marvel over Anthony Quinn's lament when he explained that answers KILL. They do. They kill the mystery in life. The successive reversals in the movie keep the newness fresh, each offering a new way of interpreting the events thus far. Before watching the movie, give your left brain the night off and let the wonder of the movie splash over you, augmented by that charming theme by Corelli. Quinn's consummate acting propels this movie to one that can be savored like a glass of fine wine. Why not five stars? Blame it on the NAZI's.
