  • Critic Reviews of "The Lost Weekend"

    New York Daily News
    February 23, 2012

    Under Wilder's imaginative direction, Milland has been able to convey just what an uncontrollable craving for liquor does to a man's mind, his body and soul.

    TIME Magazine
    February 17, 2009

    Director Billy Wilder's technique of photographing Third Avenue in the grey morning sunlight with a concealed camera to keep the crowds from being self-conscious gives this sequence the shock of reality.

    February 20, 2008

    It is intense, morbid -- and thrilling. Here is an intelligent dissection of one of society's most rampant evils.

    Chicago Reader
    December 12, 2006

    Today it's less impressive but not without its virtues.

    Time Out
    February 09, 2006

    What makes the film so gripping is the brilliance with which Wilder uses John F Seitz's camerawork to range from an unvarnished portrait of New York brutally stripped of all glamour.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    A shatteringly realistic and morbidly fascinating film.

    March 13, 2016

    Dry alkies and wet teetotalers perpetually out of balance, startlingly laid out by Wilder as a lonely metropolis' quivering nervous system

    Radio Times
    January 13, 2014

    Despite the grim subject matter, there are glimpses of Wilder's characteristic mordant wit, and the director's location work in New York's Third Avenue district is exemplary. Casting the hitherto bland Milland was a stroke of genius.

    The Age (Australia)
    February 19, 2013

    One of cinema's earliest and best portraits of drug addiction.

    Observer (UK)
    February 19, 2013

    Although ultimately less bleak than Charles Jackson's autobiographical novel, the film is uncompromising in its depiction of the lies, self-deception and degradation that alcoholism leads to.

    Total Film
    February 19, 2013

    Taken as a treatise on addiction generally, it's remarkably sensitive and thoughtful.

    The Nation

    While you watch it, it entirely holds you.
