Emanuel Levy

Chereau's first English-speaking feature, based on Hanif Kureishi's stories, is a bold, full-frontal (literally) exploration of the mysteries of male and female sexual desire. As such, the audacious film will divide film critics and get NC-17 rating

Lessons of Darkness

Pulsates with desperate, miserable passion.

Planet Sick-Boy

It's a frighteningly realistic look at completely passionless sex, and Fox and Rylance both do a good job of making us uncomfortable as we watch.

There is an interesting story here, but the movie circles it at a distance.

A film with a few floundering moments that becomes a powerful description of what it means to be intimate.

Jeremy Heilman

Its unflinching attitude toward sex is only weakened by the lack of enjoyment that the characters seem to have while actually having sex.

Despite this shortcoming, Intimacy takes us places very few films have, and the central performances are excellent.

Its somber ruminations on passion and desire, marriage and aloneness, resonate with unmistakable force.

Shawn Levy

Rylance and Fox are equally incendiary and sympathetic in difficult, daring roles.

The actors' raw emotional expressiveness lends the picture its memorably gritty impact.

It does get at the messy totalitarianism of uninvited emotions, and in that sense, it's haunting.

Chereau ... creates a wonderful minor-chord symphony.

For all its flushed and imperfect male and female nudity, Intimacy is delicate at heart.

It's when the actors are working at a deeper, wordless level that Intimacy really distinguishes itself.

Demonstrates a remarkable courage in its nakedness, and an exasperating lack of focus in its thrust.

Intimacy is not afraid to say that life, like sex, is often messy and unfulfilling.
