Critics reviews

It’s so much more a producer’s package than a director’s dream that the individual ingredients deserve more attention than the total concoction. Take three anomalous stories by Edgar Allan Poe… add meaty chunks of Jane Fonda, Peter Fonda, Alain Delon, Brigitte Bardot, and Terence Stamp), and whip with Roger Vadim, Louis Malle, and Federico Fellini. If this artistic recipe results merely in a kind of Gothic goulash, who really cares?
