Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's Russell as restrained as he can be, who has fun delving into the sexual explorations of the author."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Crass, funny, literate -- and essential for anyone who wants to seee D.H. Lawrence "faithfully" adapted. Remember the time before Ken Russell took his gonzo Viagra pill."
‑ Jonathan R. Perry, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"Controversial for its time Ken Russell classic."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"Brilliant film adaptation of the Lawrence novel."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Though deviating from D.H. Lawrence's novel considerably, this is Ken Russell's most fully realized narrative film, lavishly mounted and well acted, especially by Glenda Jackson in an Oscar-winning performance."
