  1. Thomas's rating of the film All Night Long

    Nice concept. Builds and maintains an interesting and tense situation out of what it essentially a one-room play. The overwhelming amount of heavy-weight jazz talent here [incl. Tubby Hayes!] is almost a distraction, though the whole ensemble work tightly and antagonistically enough together. Worth a watch even if you're not a jazz/music fan.

  2. P Teddy Sawyer's rating of the film All Night Long

    An amazing compilation of early sixties jazz figures and a Russell Square keyhole observation of the Jazz nether world, music, language and mores. A shameless advertisement for alcohol and a very British form of Reefer Madness

  3. miles's rating of the film All Night Long

    great to see real live musicians in this! interesting play.

  4. Max Seqgar's rating of the film All Night Long

    There's always a gossip queen ready to poop the party. And that jazz master roll-call, pffff!

  5. sizelando's rating of the film All Night Long

    Fascinating, scintillating, unheralded British movie. Effortlessly well put together. And killer jazz.

  6. ajdehany's rating of the film All Night Long

    With Patrick McGoohan on the drums and sequences with Mingus and Brubeck, who cares about the unfollowable Othello plot. Click along, sing a song, get it on, all night long...

  7. tintinmugshot's rating of the film All Night Long

    Far to be a classic, but groovy at all!!

  8. m.jempson@btinternet.com's rating of the film All Night Long

    Great little movie with amazing jazz accompaniment -must have cost a few bob to bring that ensemble together. Feels earlier than 1962 - had not heard of it at the time, but just a few years later I saw Lance Le Gault P P Arnold & PJ Proby at London's Roundhouse in the equally thrilling rock Othello, Catch My Soul!

  9. ofNatalie LA's rating of the film All Night Long

    Warehouse parties look so fun.

  10. Steve G.'s rating of the film All Night Long

  11. 'king Harold's rating of the film All Night Long

    Patrick Macgoohan at his twitchy best. Fantastic adaptation and great music. Nice to see black people allowed to be just people without any right-on racial lessons inserted as they would be today.

  12. Pedderrs's rating of the film All Night Long

    Basil Dreaden's jazz-infused take on Othello is far from perfect. There's an over elaborate plot device involving an audio recording and a somewhat clunky ending, but despite these imperfections I was completely immersed by the drama. There's a palpable sense of community among the characters, all sharing the same collective passion for music, and it's because of this that we are emotionally invested in the fallout.

  13. Kév's rating of the film All Night Long

    I would say Love and their consequences. Highly recommeded

  14. First Lady Dré's rating of the film All Night Long

  15. Sarah Pietsch's rating of the film All Night Long

    Great movie. Atmospheric and involving. You don't need to be a jazz buff to enjoy it.

  16. guillaume's rating of the film All Night Long

    An excellent Big Bang soundtrack gives the rhythm to this well paced plot. Very enjoyable adaptation of the mythic Othello.

  17. Floyd Webb's rating of the film All Night Long

    Entertaining Jazz version of Othello. The DVD is wonderful to look at in lush film noir tones.

  18. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film All Night Long

    A jazz-club version of Othello? Wow!

  19. Barboza's rating of the film All Night Long

  20. Roscoe's rating of the film All Night Long

    OTHELLO in a late 50s upper class London apartment during an evening long jazz party -- some fine performances overall, and certainly well made, but the film's Othello-standin never quite comes alive. The film can be commended for the casual acceptance of the interracial relationship(s) it presents, but the feeling that Race Is The Issue That Dare Not Speak Its Name persists.

  21. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film All Night Long

    The one guy that really deserves a punch in the face never gets it! I was floored by the jazz numbers, which were much more suited to the pacing of Dearden's work than Philip Green's overly melodramatic scores in some of their other collaborations. Betsy Blair's performance as Emily impressed me; she's so convincing and tragic.

  22. traag-1's rating of the film All Night Long

    The quiet suspicious gazes around the smoky room and of course the jazz made this film for me...Loved it!

  23. M****'s rating of the film All Night Long

    How to shoot a one location movie. Awesome composition. Great montage. Kind of boring 60s "a women leaves everything for love..."

  24. Richmond Hill's rating of the film All Night Long

    Flatfooted collision of jazzy ‘wow man’ vernacular with British cardigans and bow ties. It never quite takes flight and feels like the British with their envious faces at the window of American noir.
