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.

Lots of grads bring their wives back to the old school and ham it up for home movies -- but this is ridiculous.

This is extremely unskilled cinema from a talented stage actor.

The impersonation of the seven deadly sins is hardly likely to send good men off the rail.

Weighed down with tedium and old-fashioned dialogue (using the verse's 'Old English' language) that worked on the written page but is misplaced on the screen.

The overall effect is like a cross between a garishly colored Hammer horror film and a textbook example of '60s hallucinogenic trendiness.

Doctor Faustus is a complete misfire on every single level, a failure the likes of which most supposedly bad movies can't even come close to.
