Rating: 4.5/5 -- There is a high degree of sometimes shocking intelligence running through Reversal of Fortune.

Director Schroeder takes the 'did-he didn't-he' conundrum surrounding Claus von Bülow and makes it the film's greatest virtue, with Irons mesmerising. Full Review

Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Feb 22, 2013
Rating: 4/4 -- What happened? Who knows? The movie's strength is its ability to tantalize, to turn the case this way and that, so that the light of evidence falls in one way and then another. You tell me. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times

It is a finely detailed manners study of the superwealthy, a drama of conflicting principles and values and an engrossing legal detective story. Full Review

What it all adds up to is something the film never quite seems prepared to address, but this is a fascinating look at all the secondary questions. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- In his black satire, Kazan and Schroeder go beyond issues of guilt and morality, exposing and contesting the stereotypes of an Odd Couple: Von Bulow as rich, arrogant Eurotrash who needs thw work of a bright, hardworking and sweaty Jewish laywer. Full Review

Description by

Did European aristocrat Claus von Bulow (Jeremy Irons) try to murder his wife, Sunny (Glenn Close), at their luxurious Newport mansion in 1980? Tabloids of the day had their opinions. "You have one thing in your favor," defense attorney Alan Dershowitz (Ron Silver) told von Bulow. "Everybody hates you."
