    The bad news is that Jefferson is inept and inert. [21 Apr 1995]
  2. The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Jefferson in Paris isn't merely wooden; it's concrete. Nor is it simply bad; the thing is astonishingly bad. Sure looks pretty though. [08 Apr 1995]

    So what exactly is the point? Does Jefferson's treatment of Sally Hemings establish his racism or his instinctive color-blindness? Unfortunately, the picture is so unfocused and tumbles so rapidly from one event to another that it's difficult to tell.
  4. 20
    Jefferson in Paris is nevertheless a disaster, intellectually infuriating and thoughtlessly racist.
