Critic Reviews for Richard's Things

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

If it does nothing else, Richard's Things illustrates what dire trouble an actress can land in when she works with a director with no understanding of her talents.

A patch of dreariness.

January 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Although there are expected flashes of intelligence, they are about as effective in bringing some substance to this well-acted dirge as a book of matches would be in illuminating the entire Opera House.

May 7, 2020 | Full Review…

With Liv Ullmann as star, director Anthony Harvey clearly felt compelled to direct her in a Bergmanian manner in this misfiring adaptation of Frederic Raphael's novel. Nobody is helped by the turgid screenplay.

January 15, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A lot of tension just leaks away The movie is never uninteresting, though.
