‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Groundbreaking character study very much of its time, but still worthwhile."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A bold film filled with powerful performances."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"The film's more liberal sexual attitude was ahead of its time."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
