Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Philip Kaufman's erotic chronicle of Henry Miller in Paris, the first movie to get NC-17, is disappointingly long and uneventful, though nice to look at."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Beautiful, but more than a little overwrought."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"A bawdy and joyous celebration of sensuality. A great cinematic tip of the hat to the "happiest man alive.""
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"A lush biopic unafraid of deep thoughts and sexuality."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"A big shame."
‑ John Esther, Pasadena Weekly
"too long, too talky and yet strangely intriguing"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
