The picture is a devilishly clever series of reversals that keeps you guessing to the very end. Full Review
Charles Taylor
The picture is moderately diverting. But it's never much fun. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
The story of an elaborate con game and the wholesale betrayal of an innocent man, it's also an unusually cold film that ends with a feeling of hollow soullessness. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
This is his sleekest and most engaging film thus far. If you like a good cat-and-mouse game with a keen ear for language, then go. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The Spanish Prisoner is for anyone who likes to think and feel along with the characters. Full Review
