By...clinging to the original book it suffers from the same pitfalls, mainly the preposterous plot twists and suffocating sense of self-seriousness.

The Magus not only suffers from [director Guy] Green's lack of intuition and precision (that is, everything that separates a didacticist from an artist), but also from Fowles' directly transcribed literary illusions.

The Magus is an esoteric, talky, slowly-developing, sensitively-executed, and somewhat dull film.

Caine e Quinn estabelecem uma forte química em um filme complexo que não se preocupa em ajudar o espectador a compreender seus intrincados jogos psicológicos. Peca apenas pela trilha sonora inadequada e por uma atuação sem vida de Bergen.
| Original Score: 4/5

It is surprising how the movie (which was shot, incidentally, in Majorca without the Greek crisis in mind) is not embarrassing, but actually dovetails with yachtings and oppressions in contemporary Greece.
