Critic Reviews of "The Color Purple"Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It is a great, warm, hard, unforgiving, triumphant movie, and there is not a scene that does not shine with the love of the people who made it.Movie MetropolisJanuary 19, 2011
...we can forgive Spielberg his indulgences when the outcome is so profoundly moving.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Inspiring, sentimental tale of survival.EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 05, 2009
Spielberg may not have been the best choice to direct this feminist text, making a clean, neat movie that lacks authenticity, but the movie has many touching moments and the entire female ensemble is good, particularly Whoopi Goldberg in the second halfJuicy CerebellumJuly 14, 2005
Overrated, but still a good film.Kansas City KansanMay 28, 2005
Brilliant, disturbing storytelling by Spielberg with standout performances.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)June 23, 2003
A far better film than is usually thought.Nitrate OnlineFebruary 23, 2003
Spielberg's first big drama is often hokey in places but ultimately succeeds.Film Freak CentralFebruary 16, 2003
Spielberg's classicism comes to be appreciated in a goosebumps-inducing send-off for Mister.Filmcritic.comJanuary 23, 2003
It is unquestionably overwrought, but it is a truly lovely film with a lot of emotion in it. The meaning of all that emotion is unfortunately still up for grabs.Kalamazoo GazetteJuly 29, 2002
"a should-have-been masterpiece that admittedly has its moments"
