Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Deserves] to be counted among his acknowledged classics"
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"No End functions both as a compliment and a precursor to the director's most lasting works."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A dated although nonetheless remarkable work of propaganda."
‑ Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"I suspect that the story of how No End came to be made, and of how it speaks to Polish audiences, would be of as much interest to American audiences as the film itself."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"The aching of a moral crisis permeates every pore, from courtroom to bedroom"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A brilliant opening scene, but the political message is weak."
‑ Mark Robison, Reno Gazette-Journal
"This 1984 feature by the remarkable Krzysztof Kieslowski has been described as his most explicitly political."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Kieslowski's most overtly political film, also one of his most potent; it boasts a finale that will surely set viewer's tongues wagging, whether in agreement or disconcertion"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"The film was powerful enough in its political jibes to have made the state and the church and the opposition party condemn it."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
