Critic Reviews of "My Dinner with Andre"Peter CanaveseJuly 03, 2015
This scripted literal "conversation piece"...was also acutely self-aware and just as much thought-provoking, offering a progressive cinematic paradigm... [Blu-ray]Prairie Miller WBAI RadioMarch 18, 2013
The dining duo struggle with words between bites, groping for a recipe summoning the meaning of life. And in a movie that redefined as a surprising and inventive enduring classic, both leading man requisites and filmmaking conventions.Michael Nordine Not Coming to a Theater Near YouOctober 14, 2011
My Dinner with Andre is often celebrated for its audacity, but has now reached the point where it deserves similar credit for its prescience.Christopher Long Movie MetropolisJuly 25, 2009
(It) is a downright transgressive film because it brazenly allows its characters to just talk. Actually it allows Andre to talk and, just as importantly, for Wally to listen.Sean Axmaker Turner Classic Movies OnlineJuly 16, 2009
... an intellectual bull session as cinematic performance piece...James Kendrick Q Network Film DeskJuly 01, 2009
What makes the film so intriguing and so beguiling and so utterly wonderful is the way it slowly reveals itself, uncoiling in ways that don't produce dramatic fireworks, but rather gradual realizationsJoseph Jon Lanthier Slant MagazineJune 16, 2009
But what an egg it is.Andrew L. Urban Urban CinefileJanuary 16, 2009
Louis Malle's film was unique and exceptional in 1981, and it's still fairly unusual. It's a lesson in the value of listening and squeezing riches about humanity out of the swag of talkCole Smithey ColeSmithey.comOctober 05, 2006
Witty, urbane, original and very dated.Gerry Shamray Your Movies (cleveland.com)February 07, 2003
It's all talk, most of it interesting.Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)December 04, 2002
Like watching paint dry, only less entertaining.Jeremy Heilman MovieMartyr.comJuly 04, 2002
It's difficult to criticize the experiments of a movie that so boldly disregards most cinematic convention.
