  • Critic Reviews
    "...Oozes enjoyable kinkiness through every pore of its decadently sunstruck Eastman color film stock..." -- Rating: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...[A] sensual suspense picture..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "[S]uspenseful, scenic, cynical, and eminently watchable."

    "...Clearly a classic of psychological suspense....PURPLE NOON belongs to Delon....His catlike grace, aura of danger, lonely vulnerability and sexual magnetism make him a most compelling antihero..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Directed at mercilessly cool, wickedly tense pace by Rene Clement....Alain Delon has never looked so much like a saint made of ice."
