Master Spanish painter Francisco de Goya is confined here to be a mere middle man, a MacGuffin in a tasteless soap opera set in the midst of two centuries. Milos Forman is a good director, but neither he nor his co-writer, the famous Buuel collaborator Jean-Claude Carrire could follow a truly significant period of Goya's life. It pretends to cover a big span of time, but falls short.

Nothing like the Spanish inquisition to make a movie good. Natalie portman gets hung up and tortured until she is a creepy crazy lady, and a Monk dies. It really didn't have much of a point other than to show what the time was like for Goya, but it was fun to watch.
