Critics reviews

Creelman and Schoedsack (and Irving Pichel, widely cited as the film’s director of dialogue) have crafted a world in miniature here, intensely tactile and palpably shaped. The sense of place is remarkable, and doubly so given its iconography would soon be associated with a bigger film; that it still feels like very much its own thing is a testament to how skillfully this vision was realized.
