  1. Daniel Cooper Clark's rating of the film Stavisky...

    Two hunted Russian emigres - Trotsky and Stavisky - cannot escape their past. But of course. With Resnais, the past is always inescapable. I saw this three times in 1974-5. It was a mystery to me, a compelling one. I've been waiting...44 years...to see it again. Thank you. How strange, though. The story is clear now. But there is still mystery, hidden in the mis en scene. So I must see it again. Thus four stars.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Stavisky...

    Au premier degré, une biographie romancée du célèbre escroc des années 30, Alexandre Stavisky. Au second degré, une partition désenchantée et rigoureuse sur la corruption, la politique et la mort. Finalement, un film mineur dans l'oeuvre d'Alain Resnais, compte-tenu des inoubliables chefs-d'oeuvre tels "Hiroshima mon amour" ou "Providence" ..... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Jason's rating of the film Stavisky...

    To me, what distinguishes Resnais is that no other director has ever so skillfully dedicated himself to cinematographically realizing the work of other writers. Each film (especially in the first half of his career) finds entirely unique ways to visualize and give form to screenplays which he himself did not write. Stavisky is especially unique for its grand romantic vision of larger-than-life folly. Pure cinema.

  6. João Eça's rating of the film Stavisky...

  7. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Stavisky...

    Not as stylistically innovative as some of Resnais' previous films but a very good political thriller. Belmondo is very well cast.

  8. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Stavisky...

    What Semprún lacks rather severely in his scriptwriting is condoned in part by Resnais tactful, elegantly precise filmmaking, as well as the outstanding efforts in Vierny's cinematography and Belmondo's performance. Now if only it were a more pleasing watch...

  9. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Stavisky...

    Not for everyone the film is powerful and interesting and features 2 great performances from Belmondo and Boyer

  10. Renee Hirshfield's rating of the film Stavisky...

    Is it just my perception, or does Stephen Sondheim's score for Alain Resnais' STAVISKY... (1974) sound very Ravelesque?
