Critic Reviews of "The Lady from Shanghai"Time OutJuly 23, 2014
A magnificent mess of switchbacks and revelations, climaxing with one of cinema's most outrageously inventive sequences.Boston GlobeFebruary 20, 2014
The climax, a shootout in a funhouse hall of mirrors, is one of the bravura sequences in all film, a triumph of hey-look-at-me form over just-the-facts content.Time OutJanuary 28, 2014
Be warned: This is a film that collects obsessives.Village VoiceJanuary 28, 2014
For all the violations it suffered, The Lady From Shanghai seems strangely coherent in its extant form -- or rather, coherently incoherent, and in a way that seems quite deliberate.New YorkerJanuary 27, 2014
Welles and Hayworth were married at the time; he gives her closeups of unmatched rapture even while allegorizing his own fate as a free spirit caught in the trap of Hollywood's delusional pleasure dome.VarietyFebruary 11, 2009
Script is wordy and full of holes which need the plug of taut story telling and more forthright action.Electric SheepJuly 25, 2014
The storyline is almost incidental to the disorientating inventiveness of The Lady from Shanghai.Independent (UK)July 24, 2014
The film is as tangled and ingenious as any of Welles's conjuring tricks. The shoot-out in the hall of mirrors is the most famous sequence, but there are other moments just as memorable.GuardianJuly 24, 2014
It has an irresistible energy.Empire MagazineJuly 24, 2014
The plot's pleasingly convoluted, the performances amusingly varied, the mood sinisterly sustained. But the set-pieces are the work of a genius.Little White LiesJuly 24, 2014
Time proves this to be insanely ambitious and batty in the best sense.Financial TimesJuly 24, 2014
The hall-of-mirrors shootout finale is a canonic classic.
