November 29, 2001
Makes the graphic collision of body parts seem like the most joyless activity this side of scrubbing the toilet.
April 1, 2002
Rylance and Fox, fine actors, bravely grapple through some astonishingly convincing copulation (did they or didn't they?), and even more bravely struggle with Chereau's unspeakable lines.

Stumbles along, clutching at some half-formed ideas, but never takes off.
March 22, 2002
For all the sex and vicious psychological game-playing, Chereau's movie is strangely forgettable.

Snippets of intrigue reveal themselves too late to salvage the listless storyline.

Porno for the squatter set.

June 25, 2002
It's a brave art film only because of its porno sex scenes, but it is not necessarily a perceptive one.

Searching for closure, the movie lurches from one unconvincing emotional confrontation to the next.
October 17, 2001
Flaccid dramatization and hollow moralizing.

I'm sure Chereau meant this to be a searing portrait of psychic distance, and it certainly is bleak. What it is not, unfortunately, is riveting cinema.
November 6, 2001
Notwithstanding the bumping and grinding, this pic is about as erotic as 'Monsters, Inc.'

We're left with a voyeuristic view of some strangers' lives whom we're never interested in other than, of course, an initial prurient curiosity.
July 27, 2001
It's clearly a censorship landmark, but little else.

The result is a series of accretions to a narrative full of atmosphere that engulfs the characters without giving them adequate motivation or dramatic necessity for what they do.
December 8, 2001
Chereau shot Intimacy in Super 35mm widescreen, but the film has the scruffy look of 16mm or digital video. That is not a bad thing, but, instead, the perfect representation of this downbeat drama -- desperate, sad, and shabby.

Despite the efforts of Kureishi, Chereau and co-screenwriter Anne-Louise Trividic to make us believe in its realism. Toward the end, there are too many speeches.
January 13, 2002
It's never clear ... what, if any, motivation is behind the affair in the first place, or what either participant expects to achieve from their weekly dose of secretive carnality.
