Vibrating with humanity, it's a potent portrait of love, ranging from the purely carnal to the impurely sublime.
80
Rolling Stone
It isn't the sex that shocks here, it's the chilling core of loneliness. Intimacy dares to cut deep, and its daring gets to you.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
A raw, wounding, powerfully acted film, and you cannot look away from it.
75
San Francisco Chronicle
Jay and Claire are exquisitely played by Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox.
75
Boston Globe
Sometimes gets bogged down in its own wordiness.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
A disconcerting experience.
75
Miami Herald
You may be drawn to Intimacy's graphic scenes, but you'll emerge convinced there's more to life -- and the film -- than sex.
50
New York Daily News
Some people will want to call it pornography. In one respect, it's the opposite.
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 York Post
Wants to be a "Last Tango in Paris" for the new millennium, but its flaccid dramatization and hollow moralizing doesn't rise even to the level of last year's "An Affair of Love," let alone Bertolucci's masterpiece.
