News & Reviews

Reviews for Krzysztof Kieslowski’s ‘Dekalog’

the-dekalog-poster-1-small“Dekalog certainly lives up to its reputation as a mind-altering masterpiece. You marvel at the precision of its filmmaking even as it spreads an atmosphere of moral unease.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

“The profound pleasures they offer derive not only from their deft metaphysical playfulness but also from their storytelling genius.” – Stephen Holden, New York Times

“The Decalogue finds Kieslowski and co-scenarist Krzysztof Piesiewicz turning a delicate cycle of intimate, funny, heartbreaking, and compassionate works into a symphony of human fallibility.” – Scott Tobias, A.V. Club

“Kieslowski’s beautiful, sad and clear-eyed The Decalogue — an overwhelming psychological and spiritual epic for our times — faces the darkness, sends out a song against the storm.” – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
