Goodbar features flash forwards and flashbacks, hallucinations so hammy they would fit right into a Naked Gun movie and religious and sexual subtext so heavy-handed you'd think if a studio couldn't get Oliver Stone, Brooks would be next on the speed dial.

In Looking for Mr Goodbar, writer-director Richard Brooks manifests his ability to catch accurately both the tone and subtlety of characters in the most repellant environments.

Brooks, hardly a great director, doesn't quite pull off this adaptation of the Rossner novel.

Judith Rossner's calculated bestseller, about a contemporary woman's sexuality and her 'descent' into the world of New York singles bars, gets what it deserves in this old-fashioned adaptation.

A rough, tough ride, with a surprisingly edgy Keaton performance.

Looking for Mr. Goodbar is very much worth seeing, particularly for the Diane Keaton performance.

Despite a solid lead performance, the film is off-putting rather than involving.

Apesar da atuação forte e corajosa de Keaton, que surpreende em um papel totalmente diferente do habitual, o filme é aborrecido e irremediavelmente datado.

One of Keaton's most daring and electrifying performances

Lugubrious and depressing, made noteworthy only for the interesting turn by Keaton.

A fine thriller, Looking For Mr Goodbar is a reminder that Richard Brooks was a writer-director of rare talent and Diane Keaton is capable of a lot more than being ditsy.

a none-too-subtle cautionary tale about the dangers of living a hedonistic nightlife masked by a legitimate daylife

One of those deeply flawed classics that you don't necessarily enjoy or even like, but you never forget.

If you think you know Ms. Keaton -- you don't, until you've seen this one.
