Arizona Republic by
It's powerful stuff.
Sprawling, and hugely ambitious, and containing a glorious Wellesian Falstaff who is as majestic in folly as he is in girth.
The New York Times by
A confusing patchwork of scenes and characters.
Entertainment Weekly by
It’s a feast for the ears, eyes, and soul.
Chicago Reader by
The one Welles film that deserves to be called lovely; there is also a rising tide of opinion that proclaims it his masterpiece.
The A.V. Club by
The best and most touchingly personal of all Shakespeare adaptations, Chimes At Midnight is pervaded by melancholy and loneliness, even though its characters are almost seen never alone.
Chicago Tribune by
Chimes at Midnight is one of Welles' peak achievements. Its depth of feeling seems very real, very deep indeed.
The Guardian by
Playing Falstaff might have been Welles’s creative and physical destiny: in the character he found a dignity and sensuality in his, by then, overweight form. The confidence and panache of his staging is a treat.
Christian Science Monitor by
It is quite likely the greatest Shakespearean film ever and, except for Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons, it’s also Welles’s greatest film – which is saying something.
Chicago Sun-Times by
A picture that goes beyond what men think about - because no man ever thought about it in quite this way!
A symphony of horror.
Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us.
When you're a big man in the big city, can you get away with murder ?
