  1. lbunuel's rating of the film Being There

    Sellers is the sole reason why this rises above what is predicted by its formulaic structure. He is sublime; he is tragedy and comedy magically intertwined. But if you take him out of the picture, this is just too linear. You know where the film is headed at all times - narratively, ideologically, emotionally, symbolically...

  2. Lily Parmenter's rating of the film Being There

    Shirley MacLaine's performance really made this for me.

  3. Reynaldo Goulart's rating of the film Being There

  4. lofisofi's rating of the film Being There

    one note premise held together by a sublime swan song performance by Peter Sellers. otherwise, the movie feels strangely mean-spirited

  5. miles's rating of the film Being There

    a lot of truth in his words. too much love for sellers.

  6. Diana Smeu's rating of the film Being There

    women, all they got to do is being sex driven that's so disappointing

  9. DenoResandono's rating of the film Being There

    One of the best movie I've ever seen. BEING THERE is sweet, heart-warming, and well-written. Peter Sellers gives an extraordinary performance as Mr. Chance. I can't think any other actors who could play him as great as Mr. Sellers in this movie. Melvyn Douglas and Shirley Maclaine also did a stellar work in this movie. I was - kinda amazed with its storytelling. It's just simply BEAUTIFUL. BEING THERE is a cinema gem

  10. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film Being There

    The one and single only film which perfectionistic Mr. Sellers approved of (he directed, produced and scripted also). It is easily his most masterful performance as a dimwit who always says the correct things by coincidence and keeps proceeding up sociopolitical ladders with the irony that he will never understand any significance whatsoever. There are a lot of elements in this which will always be relevant.

  11. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Being There

    I guess I'm supposed to be charmed and amused by Peter Sellers acting like a bumbling idiot for two hours, spewing the most optimistic vague bullshit and social commentary so inoffensive and paper thin that it can be used by almost anybody. Both Being There and Hal Ashby don't say anything, but that's why people find them interesting. It is the Forest Gump of the New Hollywood. But hey, that last shot was nice!

  12. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Being There

    Regardless of how varying the interpretations may be, I have trouble when a film ventures 2 advance by way of allegory alone. The intention of each scene is essentially the same: Chance draws another character toward some kind of emotional &/or political clarity, however delusional. Such situational repetition quickly becomes tedious. Admittedly, this seems 2 be a problem w/ the source material; I'm no Kosiński fan.

  13. Ethan's rating of the film Being There

    Peter Sellers gives the performance of his career in this extraordinary film from the very underrated Hal Ashby who delivered an excellent film about the impact of television and fame that is even more relevant now than it was when it was first released.

  18. Diogo Pires's rating of the film Being There

    «There are 2 films here. One is melancholic fable about a man coming to understand death and another who is trying embrace his own inevitable one. The second is a satire of the media and the politics of 1970 America»

  19. James Mackin's rating of the film Being There

    The 'Also sprach Zarathustra' pop scene is an amazing homage, and a dancing tune for the ages. And this movie is also incredibly funny, and stupid in a kind of heartwarming way.

  20. Ramzi's rating of the film Being There

    Marvellous film that's just short of brilliance.

  23. First Lady Dré's rating of the film Being There

    on par with the book but easier to get hold of

  24. fearraigh's rating of the film Being There

    I like to watch. Brilliant. Oddly, it seems to make even more sense 37 years on than it did back then.
