Dana Stevens
The New York Times
It rediscovers the aching, desiring humanity in a genre -- and a period-- too often subjected to easy parody or ironic appropriation. In a word, it's divine. Full Review
David Rooney
Variety
An accomplished marriage of elaborate style and content. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Three sterling performances from Moore, Haysbert and Quaid, all of whom grapple with psychic pain in different, touching ways. Full Review
James Berardinelli
ReelViews
Begins almost as a nostalgic excursion, but quickly detours into a powerful and telling story that examines forbidden love, racial tension, and other issues that are as valid today as they were in the 1950s. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Yet dramatic energy is in short supply. The actors move about this elaborate movie museum in a modified dream state, as if living in the present while rooted in the past. But the strategy doesn't work. It's an imitation of lifelessness. Full Review
