I remember it was in pretty heavy rotation on Cinemax (I think) at one point in the mid-to-late 90s -- I remember because it would often air right after I returned home from school (and it beat the hell out of doing homework). Despite the fact that the merit of Nostradamus' predictions (as well as the interpretations) are hotly debated to this day, and despite the fact that the film itself is dated in some aspects (I think they made mention at one point in time about Ted Kennedy possibly becoming president), I still think it is interesting for what it is.
Glenn Anders wrote:The point I make in my review is that, according to what the director said in an interview, these are Welles' predictions, based on his own interpretations of Nostradamus. If you know anything about the ratio of predictions to reality, Welles looks very good here.
