Acutely observed, beautifully performed, lovingly directed media morality tale that resonates far beyond its 1950s setting.

Robert Redford's best and richest directorial effort...
July 27, 2007
Redford's best film to date is a poignant examination of pop culture, TV, greed, and race relations in American society of the 1950s, with perfect casting of John Turturro, Ralph Fiennes, and particularly Paul Scofield.

May 20, 2003
As a pure period piece Quiz Show delivers beautifully, but Redford's foursquare, documentary-like approach, however artful, unspools a story with about as much drama as a game show itself.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
