[A] grievously flawed yet compelling tale of political intrigue, certainly a triumph of atmosphere if not of coherent dramatization.

Weir and his crew expertly recreate the squalor, poverty, noise, heat and emotion of the pressure cooker that was Indonesia in 1965.

A curiously languid affair, rather than the breathless Costa-Gavras-style thriller which was the least one might have expected from this kind of material.

A good, romantic melodrama that suffers more than most good, romantic melodramas in not being much better than it is.
