Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

It's a safe bet that Kahlo herself probably would have disapproved of the Americanization of her life story, but I hope she would have liked its verve and splendor. This movie is brimming with visual innovation, blending its action with Kahlo's art to suggest a collision of the literal and the perceived, a trick tried by many films and done well by few. Those who say Hayek lacks the proper gravity for the part should recall that Kahlo's stature was assumed decades after her death. This is a stirring tribute to an important Mexican.
