Critics Of "Bugsy"
October 29, 2014 Beatty's daring schizophrenic performance -- on the one hand charming and gregarious, on the other a brutal killing machine -- makes this one of the best performances (but not films) of his career.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 While Bugsy expertly captures the glamor of '40s Hollywood, it fails as the drama of a man whose dreams of glory lure him to an ignominious end.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 While avoiding the usual gangster film clichés, director Barry Levinson also insists that Warren Beatty does more than coast through this movie on matinée idol looks and easy charm.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 What finally distinguishes Bugsy from other mob movies is its ever-present sense of the absurd.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 Most actors give more contained performances as they get older or else they risk self-parody. Beatty, who has always seemed larger than life, gets even larger with age -- and on him it looks good.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 The picture belongs, in every sense of the word, to Beatty.Read in Source
Philadelphia Daily News
October 29, 2014 A clump of casinos in the sand is evidence of something, but I'm pretty sure it's not greatness.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 Insouciant and flashy, co-producer Beatty is at his best when evoking the narcissistic, show-business side of Siegel.Read in Source
October 29, 2014 From James Toback's crackling script to Warren Beatty's electric performance as gangster Ben Siegel, Bugsy is so engrossing that you feel uncharitable mentioning that while splendid in individual scenes, Barry Levinson's movie lacks propulsion.Read in Source
Los Angeles Times
October 29, 2014 A great deal of the fun of watching this very assured film is seeing with what energetic panache the actor takes on the mantle of the mobster J. Edgar Hoover once called "the most dangerous man in America."Read in Source
October 29, 2014 Oh, it's not that they cover up Siegel's brutal side, it's just that they undercut it by making the man just a victim of his own appetites, which is sort of like saying Charles Manson was just a little too enthusiastic about a certain Beatles tune.Read in Source
Christian Science Monitor
October 29, 2014 Beatty and Annette Bening charge their roles with energy, and the supporting cast includes such talents as Harvey Keitel, Joe Mantegna, Ben Kingsley, and Elliott Gould in sturdy performances.Read in Source
