Regarding Henry Directed by Mike Nichols

Critics reviews

Nichols’s masochistic fantasy is a remarkably deluded example of liberal-minded preachifying from a Hollywood insider who thinks he still has the touch of the common man. In addition to that, it’s simply flat-footed storytelling, never missing an opportunity to speak its themes aloud and allowing Ford to flaunt his lack of expressive range. It’s all one nightmarishly attenuated, single-minded morality play.

One of the weirdest things about the film is its ceaseless elegance. Mike Nichols, after all, is not exactly an untalented or unresourceful director. Put him to work on such an undeveloped, uninspiring property, and what you get is a film so glazed over, so evenly paced, that it’s almost abstract.
