The movie's an eyeful, though, thanks to the intricate production design and many artworks on display; it's also an earful, thanks to Ennio Morricone's fittingly lush score.

Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, 2014-01-30

 

"The Best Offer" is at its best when it's decidedly weird.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2014-01-24

 

An uneven but weirdly mesmerizing drama/thriller, Giuseppe Tornatore's "The Best Offer" offers an acting showcase to Geoffrey Rush.

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2014-01-23

 

Italian writer-director Giuseppe Tornatore... designs beautiful sets around Virgil, who holds the screen in nearly every shot.

Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times, 2014-01-17

 

The film has several smart twists and surprises up its well-tailored sleeve.

Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2014-01-09

 

If its destination is patently obvious from the outset, the journey does at least offer scattered pleasures.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2014-01-09

 

Part of the pleasure in watching The Best Offer is the elegant, unassumingly suspenseful way it unfolds.

Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2014-01-03

 

Geoffrey Rush brings striking depth of character to a classic Old World mystery set against the sophisticated backdrop of Europe's art auctions, with charming input from Jim Sturgess and Donald Sutherland.

Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-01-02

 

An intriguingly Hitchcockian premise gradually takes on a preposterous air in the art-world noir "The Best Offer."

Kyle Smith, New York Post, 2014-01-03

 

The pic uses the polish of faux-sophistication and the cliched old-man/nubile-woman fantasy to distract viewers from dissecting the plot.

Jay Weissberg, Variety, 2014-01-02

 

Mr. Rush can't fly far on Mr. Tornatore's dialogue and workmanlike plotting, and Sylvia Hoeks, as Claire, doesn't bring a corresponding energy.

Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, 2014-01-01

 

None of it comes together in any satisfying way, unfortunately, because Tornatore telegraphs every revelation with head-slapping amateurishness.
