An instant classic, an Oscar-worthy showcase for Jeremy Irons, and a tightrope ballet over dicey screen material#133; A subtle movie - and thus a disturbing one. Like #147;Vertigo,#148; #147;The Night of the Hunter,#148; #147;Repulsion#148; and a few others, it finds beauty in morbidity - then nags you to come back for a second dose. [23 Sept 1988]
David Cronenberg's gelid masterpiece.
It's almost too rich in ideas for its own good: The sense of concentration and proportion isn't there. But it remains an astonishing, magnetic, devastating piece of work. [23 Sept 1988]
