All Critics (7)

Lang's most open-aired use of color, and wonderful, late-period entertainment.

Combustible Celluloid

A strikingly beautiful film that takes itself so seriously that we almost manage it ourselves.

Work of great imagination.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

What elevates the films to the status of art-in-genre-clothing, is Lang's taste for lurid color and perfect compositions.
