Critic Reviews of "Atlantic City"Village VoiceOctober 07, 2012
[Sarandon is] shirtless before she even has a name, but her desire to be ogled is granted dignity and power; gradually and unassumingly, she upstages a terrific Burt Lancaster.Chicago ReaderOctober 07, 2012
A shimmering success.Los Angeles TimesOctober 07, 2012
"Atlantic City" is a sophisticated fairy tale, beautifully acted and beautiful to behold; it is as funny as it is touching.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Film is blessed with a spare, intriguing script by Yank John Guare, which always skirts impending cliches and predictability by finding unusual facets in his characters and their actions.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Eclectic, pacy and hard to categorise, it's part crime thriller, part love story, part fairytale, and part a gentle, generous examination of certain dying aspects of American culture.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 20, 2006
What makes "Atlantic City" sweet -- and that's the word for it -- is the gentleness with which Lou handles his last chance at amounting to something, and the wisdom with which Sally handles Lou.ColeSmithey.comJuly 01, 2014
"Atlantic City" is full of compact social editorializing that elevates its seemingly run-of-the-mill trappings into something sublime by way of its emotionally dependent characters.TV GuideOctober 07, 2012
Malle pulls off a minor coup here, celebrating his wounded characters even as he mercilessly reveals their dreams for the hopeless illusions they really are.Film4October 07, 2012
For all the flaws in the plot, the triumvurate of Malle, Lancaster and Sarandon give this moody little thriller a seductive, lingering power.Empire MagazineOctober 07, 2012
A well observed and deeply tender tale.EmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 31, 2006
This lyrical tale set in Atlantic City in times of change is full of offbeat characters. It is evocatively directed by Louis Malle in his second (and better) American film and well acted by Burt Lancaster and Susan Sarandon as the odd romantic couple.Juicy CerebellumSeptember 28, 2005
Intriguing from beginning to end.
