Cannes 1967 - Jury Prize
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
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 4/5 -- A sharp and complex British film that his by turns witty and engaging. 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
Monthly Film Bulletin
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...
Sight and Sound
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
New York Times
An artrful, nuanced British film based on a thought-provoking script by Harold Pinter. A forbidden attraction between a repressed, married Oxford professor and his female student climaxes in the allegorial titular accident.
In a screenplay adapted by playwright Harold Pinter, a young woman, who has survived a car crash which has killed her boyfriend, takes refuge in the nearby house of her Oxford professor. He has long desired the girl, and her arrival precipitates a flashback that explores the characters' suppressed emotions and a complex web of romantic entanglements.
