All good films come to those who wait.”
— Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

"MOODY, ELEGANTLY DISTURBING AND IMPECCABLY MADE...
seems more relevant today than it did at its original 1976 release."
— Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Reviews and Quotes 2

"MR. KLEIN IS A POLITICAL MOVIE IN THE PRESENT TENSE."
— Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“A SLOW-BURNING FRENCH THRILLER… 
Suffused not only with history, but also with echoes of Kafka, Dostoyevsky and the clipped paranoia of Losey’s collaborations with Harold Pinter.” 
— New York Times

"Mr. Klein remains as strong and thought-provoking a film today as it was
over 40 years ago."
— Mitchell Abidor, Jewish Currents​
