Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
I did not really enjoy this movie, and yet I recommend it. Why? Because I think it's on to something interesting. Here is a movie about a woman who never stops thinking. That may not be as good for you as it is for her.

By Michael Wilmington
A singularly cheerless trip, explicit but sterile, racy but dull.

By Jay Carr
Lots of sex, but little joy.

Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
More cautionary than titillating...some of it (is) deliberately disturbing.
