It reconfirms Marker as one of the most serious-minded and artistically gifted filmmakers in France, or anywhere else.
100
One of the most towering and extraordinary films to grace the screen.
100
This is a movie about the world at war with itself, and the result is riveting, sublime and unforgettable.

A Grin Without a Cat is a work of extraordinary journalism, but it is also a work of deft and subtle poetry, visual (in the rhyming of gestures and shapes across images and sequences) as much as verbal.
80
More impressionistic than analytical, A Grin Without a Cat is a grand immersion.
75
New York Post
A remarkable 179-minute meditation on the nature of revolution.
75
Features some disturbing clips.
70
Marker revisited (the film) in 1993 after the fall of the Soviet Union: He trimmed an hour and added a remarkably prescient coda: "Terrorism has replaced Communism as the ultimate evil."
63
New York Daily News
By turns brilliant and tedious, imaginative and mundane.
