Fonda is particularly electric in her role as Daniels, tapping into the physical state of her character in the frame in a way that only a directors actor can. . . . She plays everything fake tough, but the movie is punctuated by scenes with her analyst that are formally little more than medium shot, one takes, but give Fonda the space to flesh out her character’s vulnerability amidst all the chaos of her life.

Fonda is electric in every moment of Klute, but watching her in these scenes with Nathan is like witnessing the sparks of a Tesla coil. Operating on alternating currents, Bree is a dynamic study in contradictions—an imperfect yet indelible symbol of second-wave feminism, the cresting of which nearly coincides with Klute’s release.

A movie resolutely of its moment that still surges with third-rail electricity… The dread and unease that suffuse the film — never has the peal of a rotary phone sounded more terrifying — seem rooted partly in anxiety over second-wave feminism, the cresting of which nearly coincided with the release of this movie, one that centers on its heroine’s profound ambivalence about growing emotionally attached to a man (the laconic private investigator of the title, played by Donald Sutherland).

Was sagen Andere darüber?

  • Ghostman's rating of the film Klute

    Directed elegantly & deftly by Alan J. Pakula, Klute benefits from a feminist streak, an unflinching depiction of deviant misogyny from its villain, & a non-judgmental view of sex. With two great performances by its stars, a great script by Andy & Dave Lewis, & innovative cinematography by the legendary DP Gordon Willis, Klute is a finely crafted motion picture made by expert professionals at the top of their game.

  • Jason's rating of the film Klute

    Though a tiresome movie, KLUTE comes pretty close to being full-on Hitchcok stuff w/ its combination of remarkable formal control, absurd suspense nonsense, and warped psychosexual subtexts. No surprise feminist psychoanalytic theorists have written so endlessly about this sleek, gorgeous piece of insane ridiculousness. I have to say that Jane Fonda is pretty amazing here even though I find her so innately unlikable.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Klute

    A filmic manual of the psychologization of suspense, (gazes and long shots punctuated by pauses and ellipses) "Klute" operates as a perceptive critique of modernity's masks, epitomized in the divine fashion design hall, Klute's expressionless face, Bree's steely composure, her therapists' technically neutral locutions. Ingeniously protracting action, Pakula digs deep into the facade of society's masks of normality.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Klute

    Alan J. Pakula's revered 'paranoia trilogy' gets off to an inauspicious start. "Klute" follows two parallel tracts - one is a suspense thriller, the other is a street level expose of a woman who feels a compulsion towards prostitution. Rarely do these storylines seem to dovetail organically, and overall "Klute" feels more like the prototype for the kind of picture Brian de Palma would master in just a few years.

  • Addiena of Mubi land's rating of the film Klute

    One star for Jane Fonda (acting, wardrobes, hairdo, shes so authentic!), one star for the scoring&story , two stars for the cinematography. Excellent cinematography, the best I've seen in this genre. The story was okay.

  • film_lies101's rating of the film Klute

    Part modern noir, part Giallo, and also a stunning portrait of urban loneliness. That soundtrack, OH MY LAWD

  • Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Klute

    Why doesn't this get more attention? A tight, suspenseful thriller with quite a lot to say. It's all about masks, identity, "acting" - dare I say this is the Persona of 70s thrillers.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Klute

    Jane Fonda's Oscar-winning-role is the best thing about this film. She's confident yet vulnerable, you want to trust her but you're never sure about how much she really knows about what's going on. If there was any chemistry lacking between the lead couple, it wasn't her fault. The crime mystery itself was a bit dull, but the whole fashion-trashy-party vibe of the 70s mixed with some noir made it kinda nice to watch.
