Critic Review - New York Times

Even granting the artist his license, America is much too big and various to be satisfactorily reduced to the dimensions of one mental ward in a movie like this.

Calm down guys. Poor dude died of cancer 8 years ago. He liked being tough on some great movies (such as Godfather Part III), and was probably the most respected critic back in his day. No need for all the flaming.

You need to be thrown into an insane asylum for preventing this classic the 100% it deserves.

Typical New Yorker. Always the ones giving bad reviews to good movies.
