Chicago Tribune
Vibrating with humanity, it's a potent portrait of love, ranging from the purely carnal to the impurely sublime.
80
L.A. Weekly
Although much has and will be made of the film's sexual explicitness -- and, yes, it is a bit -- this less-than-perfect but deeply felt film is finally most daring for its hard-core insistence on our need for connection.
75
Jay and Claire are exquisitely played by Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox.
75
A disconcerting experience.
70
If Intimacy does anything well, it portrays desperation, in many different forms.
70
Powerfully acted, intensely carnal drama.
70
Variety
A tortured reflection on the complex relationship between love, sex, desire and obsession, distinguished by courageously raw performances from leads Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox.
50
Plays like a warmed-over "Last Tango in Paris," with more explicit sex but a lower level of originality and acting skill.
50
New Times (L.A.)
A lacerating study of sexual alienation.
50
The New Yorker
The movie holds one in its surly grip, but when it's over, few people, I think, are likely to be haunted by it. Futility may work as a mood in a short story, but in a full-scale movie it doesn't bear looking at for very long. (29 Oct 2001, p. 92)
