Critic Reviews of "A Woman Under The Influence"New YorkerMay 03, 2013
The primal violence that binds men and woman has rarely been evoked as plausibly or intensely as in this 1974 drama.AV ClubMarch 29, 2011
Falk and Rowlands -- in performances of almost indescribable intensity -- detail a marriage anchored by love, but tossed by the expectations of others and the unpredictable swell of madness.Village VoiceOctober 20, 2009
Falk and the rest of the cast are exceptional -- even the smallest roles feel spot-on -- but Rowlands is the film.VarietyNovember 12, 2008
Rowlands' performance in the title role is one of those tour de force numbers available only to screen players of alcoholics and lunatics.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
An astonishing, compulsive film, directed with a crackling energy.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
The most frightening scenes are extremely compelling, and this is a thoughtful film that does prompt serious discussion.Creative LoafingApril 18, 2014
Magnifies in squirmy detail the efforts of a couple to cope with her -- or should that be their? -- mental meltdown.Scene-Stealers.comOctober 28, 2013
Despite the fact that there's a lot of technique on display here, the film still described as cinéma vérité, which I suppose is a testament to how raw and emotional it all feels.ColeSmithey.comApril 11, 2009
Gena Rowlands gives a career-defining tour de force performance that is a pinnacle of film-acting in an earth-shattering film that is unlike any other ever made.Urban CinefileJanuary 09, 2009
An exceptional film .. a study in the complexities of love, in the subtleties of mental disorder and in the way society demands rigid conformityculturevulture.netMarch 12, 2007
John Cassavetes was one of those rare artists of whom it could be said that his flaws were his strengths, and his strengths were his flaws...Consequently, the film has to rank somewhere between the two in the Cassavetes canon, and I'd opt for putting it cEmanuelLevy.ComDecember 21, 2006
A insightful essay on sexual politics: Rowlands is terrific as a housewife who crosses the line into sanity. With a light feminist touch, she is perceived as a victim of repressive patriarchal order.
