3 stars out of 5 -- "Putting as much emphasis on the women in the Welsh poet's orbit as on the drunken rascal himself, Sharman Macdonald's script deserves praise for portraying the human cost of the talented scoundrel's feckless self-absorption."Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Lots of emoting....The leads get the accents right, and Rhys makes a good fist of the Welsh wordsmith..."Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "Knightley looks stunning and appears to have a special empathy with her character....Deftly handled by John Maybury, the tangle of affections is portrayed with assurance and sensitivity. These are passionate and complex beings, caught up in a maelstrom of emotions..."Box Office "Maybury is a filmmaker of lush visual imagination....THE EDGE OF LOVE is shot through with expressive visual flourishes and tricks of the eye."Washington Post24.71404

Mojo (Publisher) (April 2002, p.128) - "...Whether burning with unreasonable passion, indulging a playful conceit, pronouncing a generous wisdom or contriving some neat linguistic trick, the majestic language sings with a richness..."0.1209583

3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Allen] writes and directs with a bristling newfound energy....It's been a long time since a Woody Allen film sparked juicy debate. Savor it." Rolling Stone "[A]n often riveting drama set in London amid the lives of the rich and cultured -- highlighted by an operatic score. And it's proof that Allen, who many have dismissed with his last few forgettable films, is still a filmmaking force."USA Today "It pretty much keeps its pulse steady, its blood cold and its nerves tamped down -- which, combined with cinematographer Remi Adefarasin's architectural Hitchcockian flourishes, lends a queasy, cool air to the proceedings."Los Angeles Times "[Johansson] is the film's most compelling, vivid presence. Like Samantha Morton in SWEET AND LOWDOWN, she makes all of her scenes her own." Sight and Sound Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "MATCH POINT is a fiendishly clever and sophisticated entertainment driven by lust, murder, and the swinging hinge of fate." Entertainment Weekly "Woody Allen's best in years....Ice cold and pitch black..." New York Times "MATCH POINT, a meditation on crime and luck, has the design -- the formal elegance -- of a thriller, yet it has been made with a sublime eye for why people do what they do that marks it as Allen's finest movie since MANHATTAN." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly "It's heart-poundingly tense, genuinely erotic and philosophically brutal in its closing pronouncement..."Uncut "[A]n unexpectedly gripping adultery thrillerthat boasts last year's most electric sparks between costars..." Movieline's Hollywood Life 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's a refreshing vigour and willingness to experiment here we haven't seen since HUSBANDS AND WIVES." Total Film 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Jonathan Rhys Meyers is sensational....It serves its dish of bitter nihilism with a lovely touch of European elan." Premiere8.674656
