The Guardian by

This 1966 drama ticks most of the right boxes when it comes to entertaining as well as educating.


Variety by A.D. Murphy

Producer-director Fred Zinnemann has blended all filmmaking elements into an excellent, handsome and stirring film version of A Man For All Seasons.


ReelViews by James Berardinelli

A Man for All Seasons offers an engaging, if somewhat dry, history lesson leavened with enough low-key drollness and powerful acting to keep it from ever becoming boring.


Empire by Kim Newman

Prestigious, well turned out piece of British historical drama with enough genuine intrigue and wit to persuade some audiences they aren't watching a history lesson.
