The Servant is for the most part strong dramatic fare, though the atmosphere and tension is not fully sustained to the end.

January 1, 2000
The film is very studied and smooth, even though it deals in sexual hysteria; it could use some of the roughness and drive of Losey's early work.
July 22, 2013
The film's sidelong narrative glances suggest a privileged world brimming with innuendo-laden excess and barely concealed sexual jealousies.

Losey's ripping comedy of breakdown, a master class in ominous mise-en-scène
June 24, 2006
The performances are note-perfect and Pinter's script is smart, subversive and sly, lifting the lid on our age-old feudal hierarchy and having a good dig about inside.

A masterful cat and mouse game.
May 24, 2003
The formidable triumvirate of Bogarde, Losey and Pinter each stamp their personalities on this deliciously unpleasant film.

From the first frame it's clear we're about to see a masterpiece.

Losey creates an atmosphere of deepening claustrophobic menace shot through with episodes of savage black humour.

May 20, 2003
It is a flesh-creeping demonstration of human destructiveness that Mr. Pinter and Mr. Losey are presenting in this film, and it is made all the more horrifying by the genteel surroundings in which it occurs.

Certainly difficult to define, this period piece messes with genres, power relationships and your head.
