Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    The film is best watched as a richly sensual stylistic exercise filled with audaciously beautiful imagery, captivating symmetries and brilliantly facile tricks.

  • 80

    Variety David Stratton

    It is at first daunting but ultimately awesomely impressive and beautiful.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Despite its arresting visual style, its wave after wave of creative and hypnotic images, The Pillow Book, as its name hints, slowly but inexorably leads to sleep.
