      Anthony Lane New Yorker Bellocchio deals in the deeply personal yet somehow not in the private; there is a vital robustness to his methods, and the new film, despite facing intractable problems from long ago... feels sociable and even touched with laughter. Jul 21, 2022 Full Review A.O. Scott New York Times “Marx Can Wait” is entirely absorbed in the faces, voices and personalities of Bellocchio’s brothers and sisters, present and absent, but it also feels, by implication or osmosis, to be telling the story of Italy in the past half century. Jul 14, 2022 Full Review Dan Callahan TheWrap A crucial and profound addition to the filmography of one of the greatest living filmmakers, and it ends with a loving reconciliation with the past that is so moving and so convincing because it is so hard-won. Jul 14, 2022 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine Marx Can Wait becomes Bellocchio's intimate and moving testimony, who seeks to share the complexity of his creative process and how the loss of his twin brother has left an indelible footprint in his life and work. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 8/10 May 24, 2023 Full Review Armond White National Review Religion stays with Bellocchio, as does imagination and ingenuity, which makes Marx Can Wait an extraordinary document of the moral evolution of an artist and his family. Jul 15, 2022 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru Intimate, honest and poignant. A heartfelt, unflinching and profound documentary that displays Marco Bellocchio's emotional maturity, wisdom, compassion, empathy and introspectiveness. Jul 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
