“Beauty packs a punch with its penetrating, wonderfully acted character study of a man trapped in prison of his own mental making.”
— Big Gay Picture Show
“A secret obsession that inevitably leads to tragedy is presented in a film moving at a pace and according to a poetry wholly at odds with the life of its main character.”
— Celluloid Paradiso
“Visually alluring and atmospherically seductive.”
