Argentine writer Manuel Puig's book Kiss of the Spider Woman has a theme that endures throughout all its various incarnations: that of human dignity and compassion surviving within a society that denies it.Peter Canavese Groucho ReviewsAugust 11, 2008
Explores the rapture and torture of desire, and the tension between harsh reality and escapist fantasy. [DVD]Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComOctober 22, 2007
Centering on the camaraderie in prison between gay window-dresser and Marxist radical, the film is schematic, and the recreations of old movie scenes are uneven, but the acting is good.Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality and PracticeAugust 22, 2004
Bold and touching performances by William Hurt and Raul Julia.Alex Sandell Juicy CerebellumNovember 22, 2002
Sorry, but this was boring and poorly executed.Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible CelluloidJuly 27, 2001
Succeeds beyond all the trappings it sets up for itself and becomes an accomplished picture as a result.
