Critics reviews

The Knack is a cool-headed exploration of the strange new roles that young men and women were suddenly forced to navigate: If negotiating sex was confusing enough before the sexual revolution, afterward it became all too easy to mix up the signals. The movie’s conclusion isn’t wholly satisfying, and its overall view of sex is uncomfortably cold. But Lester is in control every minute: Its stylishness alone makes it compelling.
