  • Critic Reviews of "The Sheltering Sky"

    Chicago Reader

    A disappointingly reductive adaptation of Paul Bowles's first novel.

    December 07, 2007

    Those who haven't read the book will be left bewildered.

    Time Out

    As you'd expect, it's a big, handsome film, rich and strange in psychological depths and eroticism. Malkovich and Winger play woundingly well.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    A long, beautifully modulated cry of despair.

    Washington Post
    January 01, 2000

    [A] frustrating, monotonously obscure movie.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    The book is so complete, so deep and so self-contained that it shuts the movie out. Bertolucci shows us the outsides and the surfaces, and a person seeing this movie without having read the book might ask what it is about.

    Filled with stunning visuals.

    TV Guide
    December 07, 2007

    Brimming with obscure meaning and devoid of drive and fervor, the film dries up in that symbolic desert sun, the victim of its own pretensions and a casualty of trying to film something best suited to the realm of cult literature.
    December 06, 2005

    Bertolucci's grand desert epic gets stuck in the sand right at the start.

    James Sanford on Film

    Soul searching is rarely a thrill a minute but it's rarely as tedious as this. ...Oscar-bait it may be, but "The Sheltering Sky" is more deserving of the First Annual Chicken Little Award.
