Critics reviews

…It’s definitely a guest at Pauline Kael’s Come-Dressed-As-the-Sick-Soul-of-Europe Party—pretentious, self-serious, and fatally susceptible to trendy stylistic gestures churned up in the wake of Antonioni, Fellini, and Resnais. And yet, and yet. That opening is punchy and strong. And much of what follows is intriguing in ways that sit side by side with what’s exasperating about the movie.

10:30 P.M. Summer (1966), adapted from Marguerite Duras, strikes me as really dazzling. It may be overheated and too full of self-importance, but it’s also lush, sensuous, obedient to its own cinematic imperatives, which yank it about stylistically from spaghetti western to giallo to Fellini.
