March 9, 2015
One of the most entrancing and elemental landscape films ever shot in these isles.

Thomas Hardy was not the most dynamic novelist in English literature, but this sluggish 1967 film still does him a serious disservice.
Top Critic

[Schlesinger] displays the best sense of Victorian time and place since David Lean in Great Expectations.
July 6, 2010
Christie has few real opportunities to branch out of her rather muted and pouty lead.
January 26, 2006
Another classic bites the dust.
May 9, 2005
Pictorially excessive but dramatically barren.
October 23, 2004
Alan Bates, in a change of pace, is the loyal shepherd. Terence Stamp is a suitably vile Sgt. Troy, and Peter Finch makes Boldwood strong and honorable in his love for Bathsheba.
