Critic Reviews for Town Without Pity
If it had more going for it than [Kirk] Douglas's electrifying performance ... I'd recommend it
Moralmente complexo, o filme analisa a estigmatização das vítimas de estupro e conta com uma atuação brilhante de Douglas como um homem torturado por seus deveres.
Audience Reviews for Town Without Pity
A bit numb courtroom drama. It wasn't tense, emotional, thrilling or gripping enough. It rather seemed to focus more on the state of the town's mindset. And it wasn't an appealing approach. Strong dialogues and aggressive performances might have helped. Otherwise, except for the Berta Kulig's testimony sequence, there isn't much in terms of entertainment. On the whole, numb as it is, it's still a watchable piece. More or less.More
