Critic Reviews for Doctor Faustus
Lots of grads bring their wives back to the old school and ham it up for home movies -- but this is ridiculous.
The impersonation of the seven deadly sins is hardly likely to send good men off the rail.
If it wasn't so dull it would camp but it doesn't even achieve that.
The mixture of posed speeches, arty apparitions and some willfully unfocused camerawork, suggests some kind of timeslip, as though the film had been deep-frozen twenty years ago.
Audience Reviews for Doctor Faustus
The poetry is great and is well read by Burton and the cast. The movie isn't that good, but it's the only version of this play on film that I'm aware of, so for that alone it's worth seeing.
