Johnny Depp is perfect as an acerbic, bookish, cynical, morally corruptbook dealer. There is a great cast of occultist characters who are wayover the top and enjoyable all the way. Frank Langella as a giant,power hungry cult leader and Lena Olin as an evil she-devil woman aresuperb. The script is perfect, and every line has meaning andresonance. The director does a good job at allowing the viewer toexperience the mystery contained in those old books first-hand. I thinkthe filmmaker had a vision, didn't compromise and made the exact filmhe wanted to make. It is a mature, ugly, interesting film with a lot ofclass but it probably won't be enjoyed by a lot of people out there.

The Ninth Gate is a great film and one of Roman Polanski's most underrated films. Twenty years from now people will give this film the respect it deserves and hail it to be the great film that it is.
Fist of all The Ninth Gate is not an action film. It's a slow-paced psychological thriller very similar in tone and style to Polanski's earlier films Chinatown and Frantic. Johnny Depp and Frank Langella both give great performances. Darius Khondji's photography is amazing and it has an even more amazing score by Kilar. The majority of the film was shot on location and is like a guided tour through Europe.
Ignore the negative reviews and comments from people who've been brainwashed and blinded by the current Hollywood fast-food style of film making with the intention of only appealing to the lowest common denominator. A review doesn't make a good film better or a bad film worse. A superb film. Rating 10 out of 10.
"The Ninth Gate" is one of the best films ever made about the devil.
I cant recall any other film that presents the supernatural nature of evil in such a great atmosphere. And it is no surprise as is a Polanski's finest work, and Johny Depp does one of his greatest performance.
You don't see the devil in that film. It's only a weird obsession and an attractive idea for some kind of people. The Devil is shy and keeps his gates closed for anyone unless for the one. The Ninth Gate is just another game that must find a winner. That movie is so poetic. I have seen that film 3 or 4 times and never felt bored.
The ending of the film is perfect.
