Critic Reviews for The Human Factor

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (4)

  • This rigorous, compelling, radically stylized film represents the end point in a line of development that Otto Preminger had been pursuing since the late 60s.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • The first part is the best aspect of the film. The second seems colder and more mundane. [Full Review in Spanish]

    August 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Director Preminger was handed his first project in five years, a great cast, and good material (based on a Graham Greene novel), and he came up with this anemic little thriller.

    October 23, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It remains a well-crafted but rather tedious effort, with only the sparkling performances from its outstanding cast giving the film some spark.

  • Quote not available.

    July 5, 2005 | Rating: 2/5
  • The film is a triumph of missed opportunities, miscasting and misdirection, excused, if at all, by the fact that money ran out and Otto had to hock some paintings to finish it.

Audience Reviews for The Human Factor

    Another great film from director Otto Preminger. It takes some time to get into the story, but after a while it becomes intriguing and unpredictable. Great acting, photography and music.
