Critic Reviews for Ulysses

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

An utterly definitive work.

November 20, 2009 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's a disappointment, though watched again now for this rerelease, it doesn't seem as much of a disappointment as all that.

November 20, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It begins and ends with the word "Yes", and like much of this amiable, affecting and garrulous 1967 film, prompts a similar response from the viewer.

November 20, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's much to appeal in this miniature odyssey, notably the superb black-and-white location work.

June 24, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

That last soliloquy remains powerful for those who pay attention, and Barbara Jeffers delivers it with appropriate fluctuating moods and contemplation...

August 11, 2021 | Full Review…

The film does not pretend to supplant Ulysses; it takes bold, responsible and joyous advantage of the fact that the book exists.
