  1. alice's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    Questo film dà un senso al Technicolor.

  2. Log Lady's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    You know, although I'm not a fan of romantic (melo)dramas, there's something about Sirk that speaks to the deepest corners of my soul. Hudson's quiet charisma swirls all over this, but so do vastness of nature vs. confined interiors populated by petty human behavior, the masterful lighting, the colors that are so bright they feel like they're about to burn through the film...

    Les mélodrames de Douglas Sirk sont à redécouvrir de toute urgence ! www.cinefiches.com

  5. Myles's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    A gorgeous treatment of love under siege. Fuck those kids! And God, when they reveal her Christmas gift-- that shot of Agnes Moorehead boxed into the television screen-- it has to be one of my favorite moments in any Hollywood picture.

  6. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    Like all of Sirk's films, this is right up my alley. I'm surprised it took me this long to watch. The technicolor, music, performances, pacing, etc! You could see why Fassbinder and Haynes were all up on this. Also, I'm r*ck h**ard for Rock Hudson.

  7. steeeeellaaaaa's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    a beautifully shot melodrama but if you don't like good old fashioned hollywood classics with handsome actors and happy ends just skip it

  8. andyking's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    My God that palette, if I only could dream in Technicolor. Those rich reds and blue snow are the stars of the show. "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it's because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away".

  9. Ayinde Anderson's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    3.5. Kinda hokey, but entertaining

  10. Joel's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    It's elegant and subversive and all that... I think these are the films I can understand why folks appreciate it so but just find a lack of depth for me to want to return to.

  11. LauraPalmer's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    Rewatched and re-loved. TOP film.

  13. EdieEmm's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    Re-started it, the next day, just for a minute, just to watch the opening scene again. 90 minutes later... Bless all you cinema studies folks, telling me about Sirk's mirrors and fades, while I'm borne along in a blissful technicolor daze, with orchestral swells, and all Jane Wyman's amazing coats. And the deer! Sigh... Gets as close to studio-era closure as I can tolerate (and no closer). And it sure is satisfying.

  14. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    Setting aside the use of color (it's gorgeous), there are a lot of great visual affectations on display here from the deer returning in winter to Rock Hudson's association with wood to (of course) the famous shot of Cary trapped inside the television set. Every one of the film's points comes through loud and clear, and its points are astonishing for a film made in the mid-50s. It's pretty wonderful all around.

  15. peaches and plums's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

  17. Lars Åndheim's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    The whisper of the blood substitute and the pleading of the styrene bone marrow.

  18. smndvdcl's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    Eisenhower's 1950s vision of a quaint patriarchal Christian middle-class Conservative America is subverted with subtle finesse by Sirk. Haynes' homage in 'Far From Heaven' owes much to Sirk's distinctive aesthetic and semantic signature. Underneath the sheen is a repressed soul aching to break free.

  21. kartina obskura's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    it´s perfect right from the opening scene with autumn colors and rock hudson smile (and the way he says "you´ve changed your mind" ofc she has!) and the snow and the old mill and that big bright wonderful window and her red dress and her black dress and how handsome he was in the suit and she came home and i´m so happy!!!

  22. the prince's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    I agree with Fassbinder's comments on this, , ,

  23. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film All That Heaven Allows

    This is melodrama at its finest- Douglas Sirk's use of color is just to die for and the chemistry between Wyman and Rock Hudson was just fantastic <3!
