Faced with hardly any budget to speak of, the 26-year-old Kubrick pulled out every trick that an independent filmmaker of no means could ever hope to stumble upon.

Frankly, it's a pretty wretched story, but this small, cheap film has style to spare.

Kubrick's second feature shows his promise as a powerful and iconic director in motifs and style.

It's tense, compelling and steeped in an urban anxiety that's strangely contemporary.

Kubrick's low-key lensing occasionally catches the flavor of the seamy side of Gotham life.

Killer's Kiss is no one's idea of a great film but it displays much evidence of future brilliance.

Chicago Reader

A noirish thriller with experimental trimmings that holds back most of the emotions, sensitive as well as otherwise, that threatened to make Kubrick's first feature mawkish.

Kubrick makes the most of flashback and dream sequences, and a surreal climactic fight in a warehouse full of mannequins.

Depois deste filme, Kubrick jamais voltou a trabalhar com roteiros originais, optando apenas por adaptações - uma boa decisão, já que é a história que compromete este longa.

Kubrick worked in an uncharacteristically naturalistic style despite the genre material, with mixed but still fascinating results.

Offers some glimpses of what [Kubrick] was capable of doing with no budget and no crew and no actors.
