Dirk Bogarde's crumbling don is the sharpest of the many similar performances he has given, and Stanley Baker is superbly chunky as Bogarde's rival for a young Austrian student (Jacqueline Sassard). Full Review

The film's didactic indifference also makes it unclear whether Stephen ups the ante or gets his comeuppance in the end. Full Review

In short, Accident is Losey's most accomplished film because of the perfect adequation of form to content, and vice versa; but also because of the degree to which he penetrates the surface. Full Review

4 stars out of 5 -- Pinter's loaded dialogue, Losey's elliptical direction and Bogarde's minimalism seethe with teasing tension.

...Menacing, fraught with sexual tension and boasts a wonderfully brooding performance from Stanley Baker...

The whole thing is such a teapot tempest, and it is so assiduously underplayed that it is neither strong drama nor stinging satire. It is just a sad little story of a wistful don. Full Review
