Pauline Kael New Yorker Clearly, Lerner didn't have the resources to do Farrell's characters and milieu justice, but it's an honorable low-budget effort ... and there are a few passages of daring editing that indicate what the film was aiming for. May 11, 2015 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine The picture is arty, fumbling and disconnected, with an embarrassingly amateurish performance by newcomer Christopher Knight in the title role. Oct 29, 2019 Full Review Sergio Benítez Espinof 'Studs Lonigan' is an amazing testimony of the maturity that Jerry Goldsmith had already reached in just thirty years. [Full Review in Spanish] Sep 11, 2019 Full Review Dwight MacDonald Esquire Magazine James T. Farrell has denounced the film as a travesty of his novel and I agree with him. The sordidness and brutality have been left in, but the social context that gave them meaning has been excised. Jul 12, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews To cheer things up, a contrived happy ending is attached. Rated: B- Apr 27, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
