Critic Reviews for Year of the Gun

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Frankenheimer's palette is perfectly suited to this material. The grays and browns of his autumn Rome, and the wet skies above it, cast a kind of weary le Carreian gloom over the landscape.

The film's political authenticity comes into doubt because the characters are so superficial.
