Time - Richard Schickel
The result is mainstream moviemaking at its highest, most satisfying level.

San Francisco Chronicle - Edward Guthmann
Inspiring and largely unsentimental, this is as much a love story as a tale of courage.
88
Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
Though the role might seem a real stretch for an actor who just won an Oscar for his Charlton Heston turn as Maximus in "Gladiator," he and the movie ace the test.

Boston Globe - Jay Carr
The film makes more apparent than ever that Howard is quite underrated as a filmmaker, possibly because he's been hidden in full view in the mainstream for so long.

Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Crowe sometimes summons up one of the most powerful depictions of mental illness I have ever seen with barely an eyelid flicker separating manifestations of sickness from utterly sane displays of creative concentration.
