Critic Reviews for As You Desire Me
A romantic problem play interestingly played by the fascinating Greta Garbo, treated in a manner of high drama. The original hasn't been broadly hoked in the manner that Metro has so often followed.
Garbo (sporting a peroxide wig some of the time) brings a real erotic undertow to the love scenes, while Stroheim is terrific as the demonically sadistic writer trying to model her as one of his own creations.
[Garbo] rises far above the story as it comes to the screen, but because of her impeccable performance the picture never fails to captivate one's interest.
A bizarre, always fascinating film with two of the world's most intriguing characters -- Garbo and von Stroheim -- who square off in histrionic battle.
It may be slow moving and a shade creaky today, but this Greta Garbo vehicle positively smoulders, and contains some of the most overt sensuality you're likely to see in a Hollywood movie of the period.
