Roger Vadim
Director, The Game Is Over (1966)
Roger Vadim directs movies of such idiosyncratic, hypnotic awfulness, they almost make other directors' movies seem quaint in their insistence on such trivialities as plot, characters, coherence.
(Edward Margulies & Stephen Rebello, Bad Movies We Love)
Director, Histoires Extraordinaires (1968)
There may be worse filmmakers than Vadim, but no one can surpass him in spiritual rottenness. His is a megalomaniacal interior decorator's world inhabited by campy marionettes. His orgiasts have sawdust in their heads, veins and glands, and Vadim, for all his sexual shadowboxing, cannot even rise to that nadir of eroticism, dishonest titillation.
(John Simon, National Review)
