  • Critic Reviews of "The Long Hot Summer"

    TIME Magazine
    October 01, 2008

    Newman's performance as Ben Quick, before the script blunts it, is as mean and keen as a cackle-edge scythe.

    January 07, 2008

    This picture is strikingly directed by Martin Ritt.

    Time Out
    June 24, 2006

    The ending is an unconvincing cop out, but it can't spoil the film's compulsive dramatic tension (or a marvellous comic cameo from Angela Lansbury as Welles' long-suffering mistress).

    New York Times
    March 25, 2006

    The Long, Hot Summer starts superbly and ends in a senseless, flabby heap.

    Chicago Reader
    July 04, 2003

    [An] uneasy blend of three Faulkner short stories.

    June 02, 2011

    This small-town family melodrama, a quintessential 1950s film in its themes and tensions, is well acted by Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Lee Remick.

    TV Guide
    January 07, 2008

    Director Martin Ritt and writers Harriet Frank, Jr. and Irving Ravetch opted for a less-than-faithful adaptation of the author's work, and the results were excellent.

    Apollo Guide
    March 01, 2004

    The conclusion is surprising and quite exciting, as this self-contained little southern world unravels.

    Cinema em Cena
    September 08, 2003

    O belo roteiro, escrito a partir de histĆ³rias de William Faulkner, ganha ainda mais dimensĆ£o graƧas Ć s performances de Newman, Woodward e Welles - alĆ©m, Ć© claro, da direĆ§Ć£o segura de Martin Ritt e da Ć³tima fotografia.

    July 04, 2003

    Newman, perfectly cast as the intruder, dominates the movie.
