The performances are uniformly excellent. Mastroianni is perfect in the key role of the basically good and honest boy who succumbs to the sweet life. Ekberg is a revelation as the visiting star, while Furneaux almost runs off with the picture as the reporter's instinctive, possessive mistress. (Review of original release) Full Review

The New York Times
A brilliantly graphic estimation of a whole swath of society in sad decay and, eventually, a withering commentary upon the tragedy of the overcivilized. (Review of Original Release) Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
More history lesson than dirt-digging expedition, and makes illuminating viewing for anyone curious about how the movies get made - information that is sometimes more interesting than the movies themselves. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
A profound film by a legendary director in the greatest period of his career. Full Review
Kevin Crust
Los Angeles Times
A smart, well-paced documentary that balances the man's triumphs with his rare failures and discerningly explores the darker side of his power. Full Review
