Liberal guilt, with a few good laughs, a lot of frantic activity, and the occasional backfire.

Hal Ashby's feature directing debut is a poignant social satire about racial tensions in New York, extremely well acted by Beau Bridges and Lee Grant in an Oscar-nominated role.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The script has a few uneven moments, none of which damage the overall quality of the film, and Willis captures the atmosphere of both rich and poor New York lifestyles with an impressive visual style.

The Landlord remains one of the funniest social comedies of the period, as well as the most human.

It's a compelling and adventurous spectacle, which feels simultaneously like a time capsule and a crucial influence on such recent films as The Royal Tenenbaums and Half Nelson.

The Landlord succeeds thanks to terrific performances, political nous, flawless photography from Gordon Willis, a handful of sublimely witty moments and an overall sense of rebellious fun.

It adds up to a more honest, if less optimistic, portrait of American race relations than we usually see in the movies.

A glossy, flat, fake Hollywood attempt at black social comedy.
