Jack-rabbiting technique embodies foreboding and dissonance rather than gimmicky whimsy

Innovative in narrative and style, Lester's dissection of mores and manners through marriages and affairs captures vividly the zeitgeist of the Summer of Love and the violent Vietnam War with brilliant turns from Julie Christie and George C. Scott.

Julie Christie in her Oscar role + Richard Lester direction. Enough said.

January 25, 2008 anti-The Graduate ... an essential film from and about America in the dying days of the '60s, yet the modernism of its style and ambitions makes Petulia impressively ahead of that time.

Petulia lives on with its vague curiosity and a genuine emotional sting.
