Time Out says

Based on a true case history of a schizophrenic - here a woman with three personalities: a slatternly housewife, a seductive flirt, and a smart, articulate woman - this is worthy but somewhat turgid and facile, a typically Hollywoodian account of mental illness. Despite fine monochrome camerawork by Stanley Cortez, Johnson's direction remains remarkably mundane in visual terms (one need only compare it to, say, Psycho or Lilith to realise its shortcomings), so that it's left to the cast to bring the film to life. And that Woodward certainly does, responding with what can only be described as a tour de force, for which she won the Best Actress Oscar.
