There's something glorious about Spider-Man, Edward Cullen and a would-be Christian Grey coming together in a highbrow drama.

Owen Gleiberman

It makes no major dramatic missteps, yet it could have used an added dimension - something to make the two-hour-and-20-minute running time feel like a transformative journey rather than an epic anecdotal crusade.

The Lost City of Z is a finely drawn period piece that suffers from its less than heroic central character.

The grandeur of this movie is off the charts. For a certain kind of old-school film fan, someone who believes in shapely, classical proportions and an epic yarn told over time, it will be the revelation of the year.

An attempt at an entirely different kind of film for Gray, and the results are revelatory and expansive while also true to his own complicated creative character.

The Lost City Of Z is ambitious and well made and full of incidental interest but you can't help feeling that it's a missed opportunity.
