Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rancho Notorious is strange. Peculiar. Outrageous. Utterly distinctive."
‑ Richard T. Jameson, Parallax View
"Remarkable Western with a wild mix of themes and styles"
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"It's Lang's last Western and one that covers again the themes he successfully used in his noir films..."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"There is a distinct hokeyness about Lang's vision of the West--pancake-flat sets in a generic studio-backlot Western town; giant, abstract crab-colored boulders made out of papier-mache, brazenly unnaturalistic stage-lighting--but it's the ardent phoneyne"
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"Cool, way ahead of its day western with Dietrich and her band of baddies."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Because the small budget kept Lang sequestered on the studio lot, he found a way to use the sets for their claustrophobic, caged feel."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A masterpiece."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
