TV Guide's Movie Guide

Dupont's stunning evocation of London's roaring twenties would be of cinematic interest even without Wong; but her sultry presence makes this backstage melodrama a must-see.

Dupont has an original way of employing camera movement to suggest erotic chemistry between characters, and Wong, who even provoked a rave notice from Walter Benjamin, is as memorable and confident as Louise Brooks was in the films of G.W. Pabst.

Music is the usual medley of pop dance stuff, with the cabaret set about the best thing in the production. Camerawork on close-ups is excellent.

The melodramatic machinations of the plot may be weak, but Dupont's assured direction, Alfred Jünge's art direction, and Werner Brandes' lighting create an atmosphere so hauntingly evocative as to be satisfying in itself.

It's difficult to imagine a Hollywood production allowing an Asian star to be as commanding as Wong is in Piccadilly.

Film4

A drama of sexual and racial politics set against the buzz of jazz-age London culture, Piccadilly is an incredibly modern silent film featuring a career-best performance from Anna May Wong.

A swinging London club; the breakup of a famous performing couple; a well-known dancer being replaced by one younger and more exotic; a murder. All juicy fodder for plot, and it's a good thing.

[Wong's] role of Shosho, the red-hot dancing star of London's Piccadilly nightclub, shows her at her dramatic and erotic peak.

Wong is the kind of gorgeous that burns right through a camera lens, and the kind of mesmerizing that seems without effort or end.

[Wong] is not top billed, but her entrance in Piccadilly -- and her general presence -- make her the star.

Wong has acquired a loyal cult following over the years, and Dupont's exquisitely filmed episodes show why.

Like most English pictures, the drama is crudely shaped and conventionally directed. Anna May Wong does the best acting.
