Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A bitter, brisk, sometimes abruptly moving satire about the West German economic 'miracle' of the 50's."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"It's wonderfully provocative as only Fassbinder can be."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"[An] interesting and rewarding experience for those who can appreciate German cinema and great directors at work."
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"I'm delighted to see someone running Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Lola. Actually, I'm just delighted to see someone running any Fassbinder film."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Again Fassbinder returns to Germany's past to reveal the workings of its stagnant moral present to powerful effect, boldly combining melodramatic storytelling, vibrant performances, garish visuals and searching analysis."
‑ Tom Dawson, Film4
"It's a political fairy tale about duplicity and hypocrisy in which everything, including ethics and human flesh, is for sale, and self-esteem and worth is measured only in terms of money."
‑ Michael Scheinfeld, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Lola is a well-acted film which showcases Rainer Werner Fassbinder's laser-sharp social consciousness."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
