A mystery wrapped inside an enigmatic nation, flawlessly acted and difficult to predict. I'm always impressed when a movie informs about a foreign culture while it entertains, and this one is powerful art in that regard.

A rare sight: a sharply observed Hollywood satire of poignant ideas, such as opportunities in life, achieving fame in American society, and how we all are in one way or another con men.

It walks like a play and talks like a play, but thanks to the gentle direction and the performances from the crack cast -- particularly Channing and a never-better Smith -- it's satisfying as a movie.
| Original Score: 4/5

A multidimensional drama fueled by a thought-provoking screenplay, tart comic energy, firecracker surprises, and a spiritually vibrant finale.

It's too clever by half, an inside joke aimed at the New York gentry.

The script by John Guare deserves an award - witty and very bright.

The temporal experience of watching Six Degrees of Separation is one of absorption and intrigue.

There are those wonderful performances by the lead players - and especially Channing, who has been underused or misused most of her film career - and they make it fairly enjoyable entertainment.
