  • BBC

    [Kaufman] weaves an increasingly sinister cityscape through prowling camerawork and a highly effective stereo score. Full Review

  • For once, a great remake, smartly executed. Great performances and a killing ending that will stay with you forever can't hurt, either. Full Review

  • There's a little something extra in virtually every frame of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Philip Kaufman's dazzling remake of one of the cleverest of horror classics. Full Review
