Rating: A- -- Except for the (fake) ending, this is one of Hollywood's best films about the devastating effects of alcoholism, going beyond Wilder's Lost Weekend, and proficiently helmed by Blake Edwards just before the Pink Panther films changed completely his career Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Grim, strong drama about alcoholism with Lemmon and Remick's stellar work.
Jack Lemmon, hitherto chiefly identified with comedy roles, establishes himself as an actor of impressive range in this tough-minded Hollywood drama about alcoholism. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Hollywood doesn't make 'em like this anymore.
Days is a tract, my friend, a folded brochure of a film, rescued by Jack Lemmon's charm and some good dark camerawork. Full Review
Rating: A+ -- Days of Wine and Roses (1962) is the intense dramatic portrayal of an alcoholic, co-dependent couple. The film's poster describes its intriguing premise: "It is Different. It is Daring. Most of All, in Its Own Terrifying Way, It is a Love Story." Full Review
The movie plays like an extended ad for Prohibition, three decades after it ended. Full Review
