  • Critic Reviews of "Philadelphia"

    October 10, 2008

    [An] extremely well-made message picture about tolerance, justice and discrimination is pitched at mainstream audiences, befitting its position as the first major Hollywood film to directly tackle the disease.

    Safe and apolitical it may be, but Philadelphia succeeds as a deeply affecting humanist drama.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    "Philadelphia" mostly succeeds in being forceful, impassioned and moving, sometimes even rising to the full range of emotion that its subject warrants. But too often, even at its most assertive, it works in safely predictable ways.

    Washington Post

    This AIDS courtroom drama is so pumped full of nitrous oxide, you could get your teeth drilled on it.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    Philadelphia breaks no new dramatic ground ... And yet Philadelphia is quite a good film, on its own terms.
    June 14, 2015

    Jonathan Demme's thoughtful human drama was certainly not the first movie to confront the AIDS crisis, but it was, even in the conventional skin of a courtroom drama, the most heartbreaking and passionate undertaking of its kind.

    Groucho Reviews

    What remains most striking about Philadelphia may be the...conspicuous emphasis on intense close-ups. They force an inescapable emotional intimacy in relation to issues the mainstream, at least at the time, would rather have looked away from. [Blu-ray]

    Common Sense Media

    Moving, Oscared '90s drama fostered AIDS empathy.

    April 21, 2006

    Wearing its heart on its sleeves, this well-intentioned but soft and compromised AIDS drama may nonetheless perform the same function that Paltoon or Schindler's List have: Change public opinion about an urgent problem.

    Capital Times (Madison, WI)
    October 25, 2005

    The courtroom stuff is unwieldly, but everything else is brave and moving.

    involving but badly cliched
