Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The leads do physically resemble their real-life prototypes, judging from last year's coffee-table book on Carrington's art and personal circle. But the snail's pacing, vague writing and Thompson herself leave a fatal void."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Jonathan Pryce dominates the film with his fussy and idiosyncratic performance as the outspoken homosexual and iconoclastic chronicler of 20th century excesses."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Cowardly and dull."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"What's the point?"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"One of those pretty terrific movies that has somehow just fallen by the wayside in our collective cinematic consciousness."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
