Critics reviews

A lot of talented people are involved in this atrocity in one way or another . . . so it’s hard to know who to blame. I suspect that [writer Christopher] Hampton is the guiltiest party: piling on the lurid, middlebrow, middle-class shock values inherent in the material, and jettisoning practically all the poetry of both writers, he comes up with a script that’s well-nigh impossible to transcend.
