Rating: 2/4 -- Pennies from Heaven is dazzling and disappointing in equal measure. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The movie, though, is not easy to respond to. It's chilly without being provocative in any intellectual way.

Literal-minded moviegoers will find it easy to hate Pennies from Heaven. But those willing to go along with the device will find the film a source of constant surprise and delight. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- A bit of filmmaking as film criticism to be respected and admired above and beyond its relationship to the legendary miniseries that it pushed out of print for more than 20 years. Full Review
