Kiss of the Spider Woman tells one of those rare and entrancing stories where one thing seems to happen while another thing is really happening. There are passages in the movie that seem to be absolutely self-contained, and then a word or a gesture will reveal that they have depths we can only guess.” — Roger Ebert (July 26, 1985).
