"...the film has an extraordinary texture, peeling away layer after layer to reveal dark depths of loneliness and despair as this cop Candide learns that he isn't living in the best of all possible worlds. And Conrad Hall's photography, especially of the Monument Valley landscapes, is a joy."
- Time Out
"All in all, Electra Glide in Blue is a slow-burning gem that is well worth the time for students of the New Hollywood era of the '70s."

"Here is still another illustration of the old Hollywood noir principle that a movie lives its life not through its hero, but within its shadows."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Buckle up for the existential bloodbath of Drive, a brilliant piece of business that races on a B-movie track until it switches to the dizzying fuel of undiluted creativity."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
