Bill R (au) wrote: At first this was weird, but then it sucked me into the world and everything for it. The violence is everywhere but it was all very good. Nice concept for a movie.

Alex K (ag) wrote: 1940's Fantasia Is My Tenth Favorite Film Of All Time.

Julie I (it) wrote: Very touching and funny story. Watch for the "Louie Louie" scene. It's a classic.

Shaday A (br) wrote: Simple, but great and beautiful.

Kevin M W (ag) wrote: A second class luxury liner leaves from Mexico on its way to Germany in the days before WWll. Onboard a cross-section of humanity ... and their afflictions ... there in the twilight zone that voyages can be and seeking resolutions when we know that resolutions are only a bedtime story we tell children, and ourselves. Uneven yet still compelling work.

Tiberio S (fr) wrote: As soon as man and rain are paired with the opening words, "I just don't understand this," a sense of existentialism comes over me. In fact, I pondered a bit too far away from the story, but I eventually caught up. I love any film that recreates scenarios with different appearances, forcing us to question reality. Kurosawa takes us deep into each version of the story at hand, so much that we forget there's anything outside of this, thinking we might just stay here and continue along. Like the characters at the center of the story, we too lose grasp of what is truth and what is fiction, we believe our own version as these characters do.Shimura is yet again playing a dualistic character with an underlying darkness that haunts the film. In Scandal he is hiding a sin, but redeems himself by standing up to the corruption. In Rashoman, he is as much a bandit as the person he swears against. The film deals with the fundamental question of whether or not man is just plain evil, or if he can do good. Trust is shaken between friends by the end of the movie, a devilish function between them forcing them to question their own faith in one another. They will prevail, but not without facing the lowest point of their relationship. Shimura walks into the sunset with a left behind baby. This part is a little too random for me, and while it does a decent job of forcing the question, it's too big of an idea to randomly throw in at the end of a movie. This is not a film dealing with themes of birth and rebirth, not without us stretching our imaginations at least. It seems an unnecessary device between these characters facing this question of truth.

John T (it) wrote: A scorned woman learns that crime diesn't pay. Bette Davis is great as the embittered sister who kills her recently widowed wealthy twin and assumes her identity. Consider this to be the continuation of Davis' 1940s film "A Stolen Life" where she also played two twins, one good and one bad. Davis is convincing in helping us discern the differences between the two sisters who are totally dissimilar in temperament and style. Davis fans will be amused by the wealthy Maggie's declaration that she quit smoking years before while Edith puffs like a locomotive. It is Edith who gets the upper hand, taking over her sister's life and discovers that Maggie had a few horrifying secrets of her own that render her actually quite evil. Karl Malden is excellent in his standard role as the police officer in love with the simple Edith; her down-to-earth protector. Peter Lawford doesn't appear until two-thirds into the movie as the sleazy gigolo lover of Maggie's who realizes what is going on uses it to blackmail Edith. He eventually gets his comeuppance in a great scene where he gets attacked by Edith's dogs. A good supporting cast, especially the religious in-law played by Estelle Winwood, a butler played by Cyril Delavanti and a gossipy socialite played by Jean Hagen. What makes this film so compelling are the lengths that Bette has to go through to keep this charade going. From the handwriting, to recognizing friends and rooms in the mansion, Bette has a field day. The irony here is great when Bette realizes what a witch her sister was, but it's too late to do anything about it. Just seeing why Bette goes to the chair at the end is just unbelievable. Bette Davis steals every scene she was in with her over-the-top kind of performing that she became known for. This is a campy delight; not only because it gives her the most clever lines, but is a reminder of how good an actress she was.
