Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is sustained effortlessly by the charismatic Watling and Tosar, who are among Spain's most popular movie stars."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The Freudian farce Unconscious is paced so breathlessly that it keeps you panting to keep up with each new plot twist."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Oristrell stages funny, madcap scenes around bondage, cross-dressing and incest."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"When it is good it is very, very good, and when it's not it's mediocre."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Even with nothing more redeeming than a lot of good one-liners, Unconscious has a charm that your ego, superego and id can all enjoy."
‑ Katey Rich, Film Journal International
"Laboring in the wide shadow of Almodóvar and lacking much in the way of visual distinction, Unconscious compensates with its cast's full-tilt commitment to rip-snorting farce."
‑ John Patterson, L.A. Weekly
"Are the Spanish the only ones these days able to make movie comedies that are smart, sexy, wacky and graceful all at once?"
‑ Gene Seymour, Newsday
"[Billy] Wilder would have loved this razor-timed, feather-light comedy set in sexually repressed 1913 Spain."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Everything you always wanted to know about sex, and then some. A bawdy, early Woody Allen-esque slapstick comedy!"
‑ Kam Williams, Black Star News
"The film is so opulently and noisily aestheticized it gives the illusion of being smarter than it is, though it benefits from some endearing performances."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"The comedy is too broad, lacking the subtlety that the film's high-brow intentions require."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"The movie's message is clear: Freud's greatest contribution to society was not the idea that all little boys long to sleep with their mothers -- rather, it's the concept of the unconscious, a hidden place where our secret desires yearn to be free."
‑ Jennifer Drapkin, Village Voice
"Oristrell is a modern day Woody Allen, although with a better sense of rhythm and naughty buffoonery. You'll laugh from corners of your subconscious you didn't know you had."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Film is ultimately unsure of what it wants to say about modernity, psychoanalysis and all it liberates."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"one of the most visually stunning and original movies to come along in a while."
‑ Ted Murphy, Murphy's Movie Reviews
