Such a unique motion picture experience that it's no wonder it flopped with moviegoers and most critics.
May 13, 2020
The golden version gives the film a heated, otherworldly quality, as if its characters are wondering around in some sort of erotic dream, lost in a tangled web of their own unexplored desires.

In short, this movie is a perfect demonstration of how the Hollywood syndrome has corrupted, distorted and misrepresented the art of film throughout its brief history.

The movie falls short despite the efforts of the actors, especially Marlon Brando. [Full Review in Spanish]

Clawingly bland.
July 5, 2018
Huston and his writers take it old-fashioned and straight, driving through a story line, allowing all the characters their own precarious consistency.

Brando regains the peak of his magnificent talent. After his series of six or seven disastrous performances, even his admirers had given him up for lost. But it was too soon.

Director John Huston is very careful not to share any beauty with us, there's one stunning shot of swirling dust, accentuated by the golden hue, but it's far off in the distance. If the characters can't have pleasure, neither should we.

A weird picture based on a slim novel by Carson McCullers, this movie fails to engender any sympathy or interest due to several miscalculations.

Brando gives perhaps his worst ever screen performance, not counting Christopher Columbus: The Discovery.

All that remains praiseworthy is the film's extraordinary photographic technique.

Either you like this movie a lot or you run screaming for the exit; I find it rough going.
March 26, 2009
A pretentious melodrama.

Unintentional silliness, intentional simpering, awkward movement and mega-name miscasting abound in this 1967 John Huston film.
June 24, 2006
All in all, a superbly controlled exercise in the malevolent torments of despair.

The surprise murder tops off the nutty story with a real bang.
November 20, 2003
Carson McCuller's 1941 novel, Reflections in a Golden Eye was a lean and intense work about domestic tragedy and sexual perversion. John Huston's film version of it is fat instead of lean, plodding rather than intense.
