This first product of the Ford-Fonda partnership -- reputedly a favourite not only of Ford but of Eisenstein too -- today commands classic status.

Review, Time Out, 2006-06-24

 

Fonda's physical presence throughout the film is a thing of magic, as he seems to glide from one position to the next, never looking awkward even when he is bent in three places to fit within the frame.

Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter, 2006-03-08

 

One of the decade's most significant works, the film was admired by Soveit director Sergei Eisenstein for its embodiment of the era's spirit and by the French critics of Cahiers du Cinema for its convergence of ideology and style.

Emanuel Levy, Variety, 2006-01-26

 

Henry Fonda's characterization is one of those once-in-a-blue-moon things: a crossroads meeting of nature, art and a smart casting director.

Frank S. Nugent, New York Times, 2003-05-20

A masterpiece.

Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, 2000-01-01
