Critics reviews

The movie skims off the most appealing aspects of both Edward and Vivian, asks us to identify with them, and encourages us to ignore the rest, so that we never get any sustained opportunity to reflect on Edward as a supporter of prostitution or Vivian as an economic victim of his whims without a shred of equality.
