Critic Reviews for The Sound and the Fury
The whole cast is magnificent and the color production rates top credits.
The screen edition of the William Faulkner novel is crammed with hifalutin "significance" which somehow never comes into sharp focus.
Audience Reviews for The Sound and the Fury
More time spent in the sultry South, where sex is so alluring simply because there's not a heck of a lot much else to do. Joanne Woodward is a young woman feeling bored by the sameness of her life and by the slow decline of her once respected family and thusly looking for a little pick-me-up, nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Yul Brynner is an outsider, but now running the whole show, if only because he's the only one who cares to. Sure, his Southern accent is for the birds, but he delivers the usual strong performance that holds down the usual languid proceedings Southern Gothic usually takes. Not boring, if ever so predictable.
