Critic Reviews for The Climax

All Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • The movie earned an Oscar nomination for Best Color Art Direction-Interior Decoration, an amusing fact since the exact same set (and same four artisans) won the Oscar in that category the previous year for its use in Universal's The Phantom of the Opera.

Audience Reviews for The Climax

    The story sounds cool, and the movie is pretty good most of the time, but then you realize that the main character's obsession with not wanting to hear anyone sing that song again, but still wanting to work at the opera, isn't practical, but it's predictable.
