Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
Like many Altman movies, this is less a dramatic story to follow than an atmospheric environment to visit.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Altman, showing the ardor and assurance of a master, pulls us into his film with seductive power. You won't want to miss a thing.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Why did it take me so long to see what was right there in front of my face -- that The Company is the closest that Robert Altman has come to making an autobiographical film?

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
The key to The Company is the quiet, focused rapture of Neve Campbell, who formally trained in ballet and performed all of her on-screen dances. The tranquil delight she takes in her body becomes its own eloquent form of acting.

A wonderfully vivid and engaging theatrical experience.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Clearly Mr. Altman was enthralled by the company's work process, an alchemy through which sweat and muscularity on the rehearsal-room floor become exquisite abstractions on stage. His pleasure is infectious.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
Knowing that the director is Robert Altman gives you a good idea of what to expect: a demimonde of locker-room chatter, catty sniping, backstage politics, high art and low self-esteem. Altman constructs the movie with the same cross-currents of his other ensemble movies.

The good thing about The Company is that nothing much happens. The bad thing about The Company is that nothing much happens.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Robert Altman's gossamer, tension-free meditation on the ballet life, never quite recovers from a performance scene that arrives about 20 minutes in.

Lacks what could kindly be called coherence.
