O que se diz lá fora sobre THE WORDS, de Brian Klugman e Lee Sternthal:
«Watching the movie, I enjoyed the settings, the periods and the acting. I can't go so far as to say I cared about the story, particularly after it became clear that its structure was too clever by half.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«A literary film that stands to work best for those who don't read, THE WORDS is a slick, superficially clever compendium of stories about authors of uncertain talent and varying success.»
Rob Nelson, Variety.
«A clever, entertaining yarn that doesn't bear close scrutiny.»
Stephen Holden, The New York Times.
«THE WORDS fails to surpass dramatically the bland lack of specificity in its title while still offering a solid roundup of performances from its talented ensemble cast.»
Todd Gilchrist, indieWIRE.
«The film folds narratives on top of narratives in a vain attempt to mask the fact that there's nothing to read between its graceless lines.»
Nick Schager, Slant Magazine.
