Glaciers might be melting, the polar caps might be crumbling, but not even the passage of half a century has taken the frozen edge off this brilliantly icy film.

Losey's ripping comedy of breakdown, a master class in ominous mise-en-scène

A perfect storm of perversity, pre-Persona identity transference, prole pole-positioning and mutually assured psychological destruction, Joseph Losey's masterpiece immediately transformed the director from has-been Hollywood exile to European auteur.

Matthew Connolly
Slant Magazine

The film's sidelong narrative glances suggest a privileged world brimming with innuendo-laden excess and barely concealed sexual jealousies.

Observer [UK]

From the first frame it's clear we're about to see a masterpiece.

Radio Times

Essentially a two-hander, with Fox admirable as a latter-day Sebastian Flyte and Bogarde (finally nailing his matinée reputation) chilling as the mercenary valet.

This is London

Claustrophobic film-making carries a charge it's not easy to forget. Only Pinter could match it.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

It is a brilliant, subversive account of class relations and the changing times.

David Jenkins
Little White Lies

Losey's use of off-kilter camera angles and an ornamental convex mirror helps to emphasise the stifling architecture of the building while offering eerie portents of things to come.

Philip Kemp
Total Film

Losey creates an atmosphere of deepening claustrophobic menace shot through with episodes of savage black humour.

Slight comedy based on the antics of a group of naughty Brit medical students at a London hospital.

A masterful cat and mouse game.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Opaque but hypnotically absorbing allegory of power, exploitation, and sublimated sexuality in a class-based society.

Certainly difficult to define, this period piece messes with genres, power relationships and your head.

The performances are note-perfect and Pinter's script is smart, subversive and sly, lifting the lid on our age-old feudal hierarchy and having a good dig about inside.
