The Human Stain Reviews

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

So finely tooled that it feels like it ought to be bound in Morocco leather and placed on a display case in a department store for a last minute Christmas gift.

Common Sense Media

Flawed adaptation of Roth's novel isn't for kids.

Casting a stain.

Emanuel Levy

Both Nicole Kidman and Anthony Hopkins are vastly miscast in Robert Benton's poor adaptation of Philip Roth's poignant novel, one of the few works about contempo academic battlefields.

Bill Clark

The acting is phenomenal (especially Harris), and the film will be a nice challenge for those in search of one.

Reno Gazette-Journal

One of the most underrated pictures of 2003.

Jeffrey Overstreet
Looking Closer

The film's frame groans in its attempt to contain such a complex story, and its actors ask us to accept implausible things... but it's ultimately rewarding.

Nick Davis
Nick's Flick Picks

A tricky adaptation of an unlikely novel that nevertheless goes almost as wrong as possible...prey to the most amateur varieties of structural and tonal errors.

Movie Metropolis

...a potboiler disguised as a work of art.

Kent Turner

In an obvious stretch, Kidman's acting calls attention to itself, especially with her broad gestures.

It is a well-dressed, good-looking wax dummy of a film.

Watching Kidman mop floors impressed me with same effect as seeing George W. Bush fly a fighter jet.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Além das péssimas escalações de Hopkins e Kidman, que simplesmente não convencem em seus papéis, o filme ainda sofre em função do roteiro sem foco de Meyer.

| Original Score: 2/5

Boston Herald

It's a thought-provoking, unusually intelligent and well-acted film.

David N. Butterworth
Movie Boeuf

A valiant attempt to bring a difficult book (Philip Roth's The Human Stain) to the screen that's undermined by the added distraction of Nicole Kidman as a char lady.

Sensitively written and directed but spectacularly miscast.

Laramie Movie Scope

A well-acted and well-intentioned film, but the plot is laughably inept.

Daniel M. Kimmel
Worcester Telegram & Gazette

The Human Stain is an interesting film that doesn't quite work. [It] is probably the best film version possible of what is essentially an unfilmable work.
