This intriguing drama ranks as one of Eastwood's most atypical pictures.

The story may sometimes come off as a ribald soldiers' tale that Siegel ... had been awaiting a sexual revolution to tell; still, his intense, intelligent breakdown of the film's wild outbursts reveals subtleties of love, despair, and shame ...

A rather daring experiment in subverting audience empathy - almost an art-house 'I Spit On Your Grave,' in which the assault/revenge elements that may satisfy one half of the audience will probably piss off the other, and then vice versa.

...what begins as a swooning pastoral soon develops into a kinky, Southern Gothic nightmare.

Southern Gothic that sinks too deep into the bayous of sexploitation and horror towards the end, Don Siegel's adaptation of Thomas P Cullinan's 1966 novel is still ripe and pungent enough to intermittently fascinate.

It's perhaps their most atypical and most psychologically fascinating, showing Eastwood as more of a sexual being than most of his other, iconic films ever did.
April 24, 2008
Evidently the public didn't like Eastwood in this sleazy role and stayed away in droves.

A sexually-charged Southern Gothic masterpiece that's monumentally underappreciated. One of Eastwood's and Siegel's best films.

We're used to Eastwood playing a hero, so we accept his casual words and silky delivery without really questioning it
