"Simply one of the most ravishing films ever made, luminous in a way that no other movie has been."

"Perhaps the most typical example of a '70s American art film -- daring, romantic, rebellious but also filled with longing for the beauty of the past."
- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Visually and thematically, it's still one of the most beautiful films ever made."
- David Jenkins, Time Out
