What People are Saying About This

John Simon

"This, on the surface, is a work of relentless, unmitigated action, as epic as any film ever made, and, again on the surface, sheer entertainment. Yet it is also an unquestionable triumph of art."

Gavin Lambert

"It is as sheet narrative, rich in imagery, incisiveness and sharp observation, that it makes its strongest impact…It provides a fascinating display of talent, and places its director in the forefront of creative film-makers of his generation." -- Sight and Sound
