    Middle-aged cocksureness, arrogance and incomprehension versus teenage revolt, with a young woman as a sort of arbiter, is the theme of this lively and inventive little pic.

    Polanski's first feature, a model of economic, imaginative film-making which, in many ways, he has hardly improved upon since.

    Knife in the Water has one of those simple, clearly expressed narratives that grabs you and holds you even though not much goes on.

    Taut, compelling, and engaging, Polanski's Oscar-nominated thriller is one of the most brilliant debuts in film history.

    The acting, music and camerawork all weave together to create an unexpectedly magical, brilliantly crafted, intensely sensuous experience.

    Circles and triangles govern Polanski's great, brackish anecdote about the instability of human interaction

    Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

    Attests to the idea that Polanski was from the very onset, a filmmaker with a singular and disturbing vision. His is clearly a cinema of obsession.
