"Verhoeven once again pushes all the buttons that will titillate, provoke, excite, offend and -- a quality he's maintained throughout the decades -- mix impudent and outrageous conceits with serious smarts. "—Todd McCarthy, Deadline

"Has the feel of a grand summation of all the director's ideas about eroticism, rationality, moral ambiguity, and faith. "—Ben Kenigsberg, RogerEbert.com

"[A] gleefully lurid period-piece look at sapphic lust and religious rot. "—Stephen Garrett, Observer
