Critic Reviews of "The Long Hot Summer"TIME MagazineOctober 01, 2008
Newman's performance as Ben Quick, before the script blunts it, is as mean and keen as a cackle-edge scythe.VarietyJanuary 07, 2008
This picture is strikingly directed by Martin Ritt.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The ending is an unconvincing cop out, but it can't spoil the film's compulsive dramatic tension (or a marvellous comic cameo from Angela Lansbury as Welles' long-suffering mistress).New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
The Long, Hot Summer starts superbly and ends in a senseless, flabby heap.Chicago ReaderJuly 04, 2003
[An] uneasy blend of three Faulkner short stories.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 02, 2011
This small-town family melodrama, a quintessential 1950s film in its themes and tensions, is well acted by Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Lee Remick.TV GuideJanuary 07, 2008
Director Martin Ritt and writers Harriet Frank, Jr. and Irving Ravetch opted for a less-than-faithful adaptation of the author's work, and the results were excellent.Apollo GuideMarch 01, 2004
The conclusion is surprising and quite exciting, as this self-contained little southern world unravels.Cinema em CenaSeptember 08, 2003
O belo roteiro, escrito a partir de histórias de William Faulkner, ganha ainda mais dimensão graças às performances de Newman, Woodward e Welles - além, é claro, da direção segura de Martin Ritt e da ótima fotografia.Film4July 04, 2003
Newman, perfectly cast as the intruder, dominates the movie.
