Critic Reviews of "The Dreamers"Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
A real pleasure.New York Magazine/VultureAugust 07, 2004
Exhilarating.Orlando SentinelMarch 05, 2004
Swept away by the intensity of the characters' movie debates and sexual games, Bertolucci often recaptures the film-besotted spirit of the period.Dallas Morning NewsMarch 04, 2004
Ambitious and uneven, visceral and pungent.Chicago ReaderFebruary 20, 2004
Its nostalgia and narcissism are ultimately two versions of the same thing, and neither can reopen cross-cultural channels. Instead they keep this story stuck in the past, frozen and intact and irrelevant.ColeSmithey.comAugust 27, 2009
Legendary director Bernardo Bertolucci ("1900") crafts a return to social revolt in the form of sexual pursuits by a trio of late '60s teenaged students in this engaging yet insufficient movie.City Pages, Minneapolis/St. PaulAugust 21, 2009
Despite the movie's well-earned NC-17, Bertolucci's own ménage à trois favors cinephilia over the related pleasures of politics and sex.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Bertolucci tops himself.Observer (UK)December 07, 2007
It's an amusing, sophisticated movie, true to its times, cheerfully erotic, and played with unselfconscious conviction by its three young actors.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 03, 2006
The film is at once a celebration of the sexual revolution and a celebration of cinema as the secular equivalent of religion, at a time when movies really mattered.Empire MagazineApril 01, 2006
Fans of film and gorgeous naked people of either sex will find much here to interest them. But it also has moments that make you want to throw stones.
