Perhaps understanding the distance that these fictional interpretations have created, The Crucible seems to invite a moral and emotional, rather then political reading.
Ryan Gilbey. Then there's always Mr. Scofield, bringing an almost unbearable, yet entirely believable, lightness of spirit to his loathsome character. It's a bold stroke by a great actor, making zealotry and evil seem positively beneficent. Joe Morgenstern. I recommend Hytner's movie highly, but a part of me resists a work that makes the audience feel as noble in our moral certainty as the characters it invites us to deplore. Some part of its power seems borrowed from the thing it hates.
David Ansen. Her cheeks flush, her winsome beauty seared with erotic rage, Ryder exposes the real roots of the piece. Richard Corliss. Too bad, though, that The Crucible fails to probe deeper into the sexual, religious, and political conditions that can give false accusations so much power -- even today.
Misha Berson. Arthur Miller's screenplay keeps everything nice and faithful to the period, and the actors have the dirt on their hands to prove it. The movie lacks polish as well, and that's to everyone's benefit. Stephen Thompson. The miracle of Nicholas Hytner's rigorous, taut film arises from its ability to capture the high theatricality of its life in the theater. Malcolm Johnson. A competent, uncontroversial, rather shouty version of a play which is now safely canonical and, if the philistinism may be forgiven, less remarkable than it once seemed, when dramas of the liberal conscience had an urgent edge.
Kevin Jackson. The clarity of the direction and the quality of the acting make it the best rendition of the author's work that any of us is likely to see either on screen or on stage. Edmund S. Plodding film based on play has mature themes, sex, violence.
Barbara Shulgasser. A McCarthy-era retelling of the Salem witch trials, Arthur Miller's play is a literary classic, but this adap falls short. Andrew Lowry.

The Crucible Critics Consensus This staid adaptation of The Crucible dutifully renders Arthur Miller's landmark play on the screen with handsome production design and sturdy performances, if not with the political anger and thematic depth that earned the drama its reputation.

When Arthur Miller's play The Crucible was first staged in , it was widely acclaimed as a metaphor for the recklessness of Joseph McCarthy and his spurious crusade against communism. In its screen adaptation scripted by Miller , the tone has been adjusted somewhat and plays as a warning against the dangers of political and religious extremism of all kinds.
After a group of young women is accused of witchcraft in the Puritan community of Salem, Mass. Abigail has a private grudge against the Proctors; while working as their servant, she had an affair with John, and when John ended the relationship and returned to his wife, Abigail was fired. Now the Reverend Parris Bruce Davison is hearing accusations and counter-accusations of misdeeds from all sides of the community in the wake of Abigail's charges, so he brings in Judge Danforth Paul Scofield to determine who is guilty or innocent.
However, given the moral climate of the time, it seems someone has to be found guilty of witchcraft, even though firm evidence of wrongdoing is becoming hard to come by. This was the second screen version of The Crucible, though it was the first one in English; the previous version, filmed in France in , starred Simone Signoret and Yves Montand.
