Critic Reviews of "Quills"VarietyFebruary 23, 2012
"Quills" is sensational in every sense of the word.Time OutJune 24, 2006
It pokes at sexual taboos - it's pretty subversive, considering - but sexuality and creativity are indelibly linked, and its true subject is expression, repression and catharsis.New York Magazine/VultureMay 21, 2001
Quills, about the marquis de Sade, is a voluptuous impasto. Everything in it -- the colors, the locations, the people -- seems swirled with a mixture of decadence and grace.Philadelphia InquirerDecember 22, 2000
More heavy-handed than memorable.Miami HeraldDecember 22, 2000
A marvelous, saucy romp.Associated PressDecember 22, 2000
The material benefits from a top-rank cast that fleshes out what could seem merely an exercise in philosophy.EmanuelLevy.ComFebruary 08, 2011
Kaufman's biopic of the notorious Marquis de Sade is sharply uneven, serious, poignant, trashy, sleazy and sensationslist, marred by over-the-top turn from Geoffrey Rush.Old School ReviewsJune 07, 2010
a conceptual piece about the nature of creativity and questions of artCourier-Journal (Louisville, KY)June 25, 2004
While it is horrible and sordid, it's also witty, fast-paced and intriguing as it explores freedom of expression.RTÉ (Ireland)April 01, 2003
You'll swear you can hear a throaty cackle of approval from the hereafter.TheMovieReport.comDecember 08, 2002
Kaufman and writer Doug Wright (adapting his own play) infuse the film with a decadent playfulness befitting a film about the Marquis.Cinema em CenaMay 31, 2002
É uma pena que o Oscar, ao contrário de outras premiações, não possua uma categoria de 'Melhor Elenco'.
