Accident Reviews

March 12, 2015
The film is put together as carefully as a Hitchcock.

The whole thing is such a teapot tempest, and it is so assiduously underplayed that it is neither strong drama nor stinging satire. It is just a sad little story of a wistful don.
March 12, 2015
Dirk Bogarde's crumbling don is the sharpest of the many similar performances he has given, and Stanley Baker is superbly chunky as Bogarde's rival for a young Austrian student (Jacqueline Sassard).

Of Losey's three collaborations with Pinter (the other two are 1963's The Servant and 1970's The Go-Between), it is the most challenging and influential.

The film's didactic indifference also makes it unclear whether Stephen ups the ante or gets his comeuppance in the end.

Bring a date, because you'll need to talk this one through.

Losey and Pinter locate the pain that lurks deep within complacency, and the film positively throbs with it. It's an old idea, perhaps. But in their hands it hurts anew.
February 23, 2012
A firstrate cast is headed by Bogarde, who wins sympathy for his superficially cold character, and his contained way with emotion is superbly right. But the main acting surprise is contributed by Stanley Baker.

'Accident' now seems a little self-conscious in its modernist, 'quality' art-cinema pretensions.
