French crime film auteur Jean-Pierre Melville described this film as "magistral" (masterly or magisterial). UCLA academic Bob Hudson's article in the journal 'Lingua Romana : a journal of French, Italian and Romanian culture' (4, 1, Fall 2005), entitled "J.-P. Melville's Quest for the Absolute: Persistent Perfectionism and Realistic Obsession in His 'Last' Films", states that Melville "...saw it as establishing the standard for cinema" and said that his quest in films was to achieve such grandeur.

The Kremlin Letter is the most intense spy drama, with the tightest script and the very best characterizations ever to appear in this peculiarly appealing genre.
John Huston (who plays one scene himself, masterfully) somehow assembled the incredible cast, which reads like a who's who of its time. This was one of the great Nigel Green's last roles, and his performance is typical of all the others in the cast, smooth and riveting.
Barbara Parkins is at her peak, and is more alluring than you would believe. Much hotter than you've ever seen her. Wow.
Critics say this movie is slow and hard to follow. Perhaps they watched it at a cocktail party. It keeps you on your toes and you do have to pay attention, but that's how a good spy movie should be. This ain't James Bond Spoofs A Bad Guy!
If you like a good story filled with intrigue, double-crossing, revenge, sudden deadly action, plot twists and just plain evil bad guys, watch The Kremlin Letter.
