    Opening with a bravura wedding sequence and ending with a sycophantic bow to a replaced telephone receiver, the film has its longueurs, but Mifune's buttoned-down avenger is a compelling portrait of righteous obsession foundering on unpredictable reality.

    Kurosawa rather loaded the film on the side of social significance, while neglecting to capitalise on the noir aspects that underlie it. Even so, his use of the 'scope screen is masterly.

    Bosley Crowther New York Times

    This is a powerful and interesting picture that Kurosawa has made -- a bit tedious and mawkish in the last reels, but exciting enough along the way to satisfy audiences that know the subject.

    Dave Kehr Chicago Reader

    A well-done thriller with Kurosawa's usual social overtones.

    Uneven thriller about taking down corporate criminals has great opening scene.

    A powerful tale of a son seeking to avenge his father in a world of corporate malfeasance with Hamlet-like dimensions.

    Armond White New York Press
    January 20, 2010

    The Bad Sleep Well's ground-breaking concept shows Kurosawa's uncompromised ambition.

    t is almost an anti-thriller, but viewers who are willing to steep themselves in the intricacies of Japanese ceremonies and the banal details of evil will find the experience highly rewarding.

    There just seemed to be a missing ingredient to raise this intense psychological drama to the level of a Rashomon.

    James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk

    Despite having been made more than 45 years ago and in a postwar Japanese setting, in the age of Enron, it may be more relevant than ever.

    Nick Schager Slant Magazine

    A freestyle homage to Hamlet that does away with the costumed faithfulness of Kurosawa's other Shakespeare adaptations.
