Critic Reviews of "A Man for All Seasons"New York Daily NewsFebruary 18, 2015
It is profoundly stirring in its dramatic conception, appealing as it does to the mind, heart, eye and ear.The New RepublicAugust 30, 2012
There's more than a little of the school pageant in the rhythm of the movie: Though it's all neater than our school drama coaches could make it, the figures group and say their assigned lines and move on.TIME MagazineFebruary 20, 2009
One of the most intelligent religious movies ever made.VarietyJanuary 29, 2008
Producer-director Fred Zinnemann has blended all filmmaking elements into an excellent, handsome and stirring film version of A Man For All Seasons.Chicago ReaderDecember 13, 2006
Robert Bolt's boring historical drama functions best as an anthology of British acting styles, circa 1966.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Orson Welles alone relieves the boredom in a marvellous cameo as Cardinal Wolsey. If only they'd let him loose with the whole sorry history...Monthly Film BulletinFebruary 16, 2016
The film works well in all departments, in fact -- design, photography, and music. One just wishes that its central conception had been more interesting.America MagazineFebruary 18, 2015
Playwright Bolt, acting as his own scenarist, and director Fred Zinnemann have done a superb job of turning the play into a movie.Radio TimesJanuary 10, 2014
It's Scofield's picture -- his is an inspired performance of virtue with a dash of vanity.Total FilmFebruary 19, 2013
Fred Zinnemann's historical drama is the kind of authentic, stately yawner that probably wouldn't even score a greenlight today.Common Sense MediaDecember 21, 2010
Superb movie of More's stand against Henry VIII.
