Critic Reviews for Madame X

All Critics (2)

Completed the same year as the star's first face-lift, Madame X viciously spans two dozen years, inspiring one gossip columnist of the time to joke that Constance Bennett looked younger without makeup than Turner did with it.

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

Director David Lowell Rich, a television director, helms it as if to make it as archaic, sudsy and corny as humanly possible.

Audience Reviews for Madame X

Latter day Lana is a richly appointed trash wallow, with a strong performance given by the star and a chic one by Constance Bennett, if that's what you're in the mood for you'll be very satisfied.
