Critic Reviews of "Best Seller"Seanax.comMay 22, 2016
[Larry] Cohen cannily mixes social satire and genre twists in his clever screenplay of an unlikely friendship between two men with more history than they realize...Ozus' World Movie ReviewsApril 07, 2016
Ingenious big city cop film.The DissolveMarch 30, 2015
Best Seller wouldn't amount to much without Woods' foul, sadistic, gleefully profane edge.Combustible CelluloidMarch 27, 2015
Concentrate(s) on character interactions, shootouts, and chases, with things like plot and motivation taking a back seat. The slick, 1980s design does the rest.Fantastica DailyOctober 08, 2005
A knockout. An intense, imaginative and exciting multilayered thriller. Woods and Dennehy are both outstanding. One of the unsung great movies of the 1980s.MovieholeMarch 31, 2005
One of the edgiest, most suspenseful thrillers of the 1980's....Woods is amazingTheWorldJournal.comMay 31, 2003
This Best Seller is a fabulous read...slick, taut, and involving. Woods and Dennehy make for an unconventional crime-chasing pair.Apollo GuideFebruary 21, 2003
The two leads make Best Seller easy to sit through, but the wandering script by Larry Cohen and the dreary pacing offered by director John Flynn sink what could have been a can't-miss b-movie hoot.
