(kr) wrote: The movie was kind of shaky and then the ending really did it in. There is a time and place for endings like that, but they come with stronger movies that can weather it. They had a decent concept but they shot themselves in the feet.
(es) wrote: Unlikeable characters and pointless plot lines. But something about it makes you still want to watch.

(us) wrote: A film about every teenagers' worst nightmare: Your family is hiding something from you. Society is an extreme body horror black comedy that tells the tale of Billy who doesn't fit in with the rest of the people in Beverly Hills and suspects that everyone are aliens. It satires the wealthy life style of the Beverly Hill neighborhood and the puberty experienced by most teenagers. It's one hell of a film that you will not forget and certainly a cult classic. Brian Yuzna took the idea of orgy to the maximum. Society is sexy, funny, dirty and disturbing and definitely not to be watched while eating.

(mx) wrote: Herzog's eye is as insightful as usual. He presents his characters with such an authority you believe everything he puts in front of you. I particularly enjoyed the scenes with the female African army and the musical set pieces near the end. It all looks so natural and unstaged as is often the case when Herzog explores exotic locations rarely shown in western cinema.Kinski is perhaps slightly off form - his stare is a little dulled - but he is put through it in a brave and magnetic performance. You can't help but admire his intensity as usual in his Herzog films but this doesn't quite reach the heights of Woyzeck or Aguirre Wrath Of God.

(gb) wrote: This is a very good film for its time and significantly better than the overrated John Ford Western, most of which contain many corny elements. Karl malden and Brando act extremely well in the film. The ending was ruined because of the rejection by the studio of the director Malin Brando's filmed ending. The photography, location and atmospheric intensity of the film were ahead of its time with respect to the western genre. Although there were some flaws in the film it is one of the great Westerns.

(au) wrote: There is a good story here with impressive performances. Some light laughs. At two hours though it drags and focuses too much in being a courtroom drama instead of a family drama where the script shines.
(ag) wrote: This is my favorite saw movie. Brings everything full circle, with interesting metaphors and near ideas.
(mx) wrote: It was a really hard movie... So true!!! I wish every coming out story was just like that one!!! There wasn't a a lot of chemistry between the couple, but still a nice movie. No lesbian sex!!! That was so strange but ok!!
