Critic Reviews for Studs Lonigan

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • Clearly, Lerner didn't have the resources to do Farrell's characters and milieu justice, but it's an honorable low-budget effort ... and there are a few passages of daring editing that indicate what the film was aiming for.

    May 11, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The picture is arty, fumbling and disconnected, with an embarrassingly amateurish performance by newcomer Christopher Knight in the title role.

  • 'Studs Lonigan' is an amazing testimony of the maturity that Jerry Goldsmith had already reached in just thirty years. [Full Review in Spanish]

    September 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • James T. Farrell has denounced the film as a travesty of his novel and I agree with him. The sordidness and brutality have been left in, but the social context that gave them meaning has been excised.

    July 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • To cheer things up, a contrived happy ending is attached.
