Critic Reviews of "Mildred Pierce"The New RepublicAugust 31, 2012
The production, mainly because of Michael Curtiz's direction, is unimaginative and badly hoked-up.TIME MagazineJuly 25, 2011
All this is good melodrama and fair entertainment, but it is much closer to the waltz-time schmalz of Kathleen Norris than to the fox-trot brass of James M. Cain.Chicago ReaderOctober 17, 2007
The archetypal Joan Crawford movie.VarietyOctober 17, 2007
A class feature, showmanly produced by Jerry Wald and tellingly directed by Michael Curtiz.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The film is a chilling demonstration of the fact that, in a patriarchal society, when a woman steps outside the home the end result may be disastrous.New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
Joan Crawford is playing a most troubled lady, and giving a sincere and generally effective characterization of same.Seanax.comMarch 16, 2017
You don't think of Michael Curtiz, the great house director of Warner Bros. spectacles and prestige pictures, as one of the great noir directors but the opening twenty minutes or so is a master class in film noir directing...CineVueFebruary 28, 2017
The tragedy of Mildred Pierce is an essential film noir.Laramie Movie ScopeMay 20, 2013
Considered a film noir classic, it is more of a soap opera, despite the fact that the story revolves around a murder mystery. It is a story which artfully combines cynicism and sentimentality.EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 25, 2009
Joan Crawford gives one of her most iconic (Oscar-winning) performances in Michael Curtiz's quintessential film noir and woman's picture of the 1940s.Film4October 17, 2007
An undisputed classic.Lessons of DarknessAugust 07, 2006
A hearty genre pic fraught with tense social/sexual anxieties.
