  1. Easily one of the finest and most sophisticated films of the year.
  2. Pandaemonium goes a long way toward capturing the compelling delirium of opium among a crowd of freethinking British iconoclasts.
  3. It's unfortunate and ironic that Temple risks so much so successfully in evoking an atmosphere of literary imagination as well as Coleridge's drug-induced fantasies only to conclude his film in a thud of fustian staginess.
  4. Treats the poets not as creative equals but as a groundbreaking genius and a jealous, vindictive hack. Wordsworth is Salieri to Coleridge's Mozart.
  5. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey

    Never quite dull, neither does it ever find a viable rhythm, narrative arc or crux of emotional engagement.

    Pandaemonium plays like a bus-and-truck version of such Ken Russell's '60s classics as "The Music Lovers."
