Charlie E (it) wrote: Great songs and awesome movie

Frances H (ca) wrote: Not funny, but somewhat ironic. Not the worst movie I've ever seen, but far from the best, especially from such a good cast. I guess there is only so m,ugh one can do with a non-funny script.

Ilsa L (br) wrote: This is a very moving and personal look at a family that would have been too harrowing to watch if it were not for the genuine compassion of the screenwriter and Director, Terence Davies for the people in the film and his brilliant and innovative use of the musical score.The score provides a soft focus lens for the brutality of the patriarch of the family and the ongoing consequences in addition to an accurate timeframe for the unfolding drama. Great performances from a talented cast with special mention of Pete Postlethwaite's portrayal of the disturbed Father. A young Pauline Quirke also has a brief cameo in this.

Andy P (ca) wrote: Jules and Jim signaled a more adult and middle-of-the-road effort than Truffaut's previous two films without losing any of the young and disruptive energy of the revolution he and his accomplices had just launched in world cinema; the result is an emotionally haunting, cerebral and very funny film that stands as one of the crowning achievements of the French New Wave.

Ryan D (br) wrote: After seeing Sunset Boulevard a while back and being thoroughly impressed by Gloria Swanson I wanted to see some more of her work. She was most famous for her silent pictures and this was the silent picture for which she received the best actress nomination.The film stars Gloria Swanson who plays a woman named Sadie Thompson. Sadie Thompson was from San Francisco (probably a prostitute in San Francisco) and takes a ship to Pago Pago to try and start a new life. There, she meets an over-zealous missionary (played by Lionel Barrymore - the great uncle of Drew Barrymore) who tries to get her to repent for her sins. She meets a man who wants to take her to Australia, but the missionary wants no part of that. The plot isn't really all that complex and takes place in pretty much once location. My main complaint with the plot is that Thompson's attitude seems to flip-flop several times with little explanation during the end of the film but other than that the plot is good.This film is the first silent film I've seen where I really noticed the acting in any meaningful way. While Swanson did not impress me in this film nearly as much as the talking picture Sunset Boulevard, this performance was still quite memorable. Swanson made me care about Sadie Thompson. Lionel Barrymore's performance as the missionary was also quite good. As the film progressed I hated him.Unfortunately, the final reel of this film is considered lost so the dramatic conclusion is not presented in video but rather still photographs from the missing scenes and excessive intertitles. While not completely distracting, it is quite unfortunate as it made the ending a little less dramatic than it should have been. Only a very small percentage of silent films exist in any form today so it is quite fortunate that this film, or at least the vast majority of it, still exists.Overall, this was a pretty good film although it was far short of the nearly perfect Sunset Boulevard. Swanson's performance was the most memorable bit of silent acting I've ever seen. For those that have seen and liked Sunset Boulevard and are not afraid of silent films, this is probably worth checking out. Most people won't even consider watching silent films so I would only recommend this to those that do as this is not the best silent film to make your first.80/100B-UP NEXT: Back to talking pictures with Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess.
