    "This is probably the best Peter Greenaway film ever. The Baby of Macon has all the ingredients of a successful movie, great storyline, good script, and great acting. I won't spoil it for you guys if you haven't watch it but trust me when I say this movie is worth your time. Especially if you are into mystery and thriller movies."

    "Another intriguing film helmed by Peter Greenaway. I am not surprised that the art portion of this movie is accurate and that the reaction of Brian Dennehy's colleagues is genuine. What surprised me was the twist at the end of the movie. Well, art imitates life and life imitates art."

    "Peter Greenaway has this thing with art and it really shows in his work. This time, tackling the great Dutch painter Hendrik Goltzius who was famous for erotic prints. Goltzius and the Pelican Company is a great movie about art and the man who creates the art."

    "I can never get enough of Peter Greenaway's movies. This man has a good eye for art and you can see his influences throughout Prospero's Books. The background art is composed of Rennaisance art and it brings color to an already beautifully put-together film."

    "Peter Greenaway is at it again. Nightwatching is a great film if you are an art enthusiast. Nightwatching is about Rembrandt and his masterpiece, The Night Watch. Greenaway is a master of bringing to life this kinds of movie as evidenced by his other film Goltzius and the Pelican Company."

    "Peter Greenaway has a way with this kinds of movies. Even if it's on the erotic side, the scenes are actually well-made that you focuses on the storyline and how it pertains to a particular scene, and not the act of love-making itself. I really liked this movie."
