As personified in a blazing performance by Janet McTeer — her voice like velvet and her physical bearing a cloak of studied artifice encasing a flesh and blood woman of ferocious cunning — there’s never cause to doubt her claim. Her accomplice-turned-opponent in their games of cruel conquest is a different matter. But even if Liev Schreiber is ill-suited for the part of the “conspicuously charming” Vicomte de Valmont, Josie Rourke’s evocative staging provides a compelling portrait of a dissolute aristocracy on the brink of devouring itself.

---Hollywood Reporter
But while director Rourke’s casting seems a bit bizarre, her staging is superb. Scene changes are especially eye-catching, with gorgeously costumed extras gliding on and off, humming to themselves. Aside from beautifying the scene, their underlying purpose is to gradually strip the set of its splendid furnishings, until at the end all that’s left is an empty canvas hanging on the wall to signify the empty lives of the characters.
