“Blue Movie, while sexually frank in both its depictions and its free love themes, is far from a mindless erotic free-for-all.” –Zekefilm
“It’s also significant for being the cinematography debut of Jan de Bont, who would go on to work on Verhoeven’s Turkish Delight and John McTiernan’s Die Hard, as well as helming Speed, Twister and the 1999 remake of The Haunting.” –Blood on the Camera
