Ratings & Reviews

  1. ali di pollo's rating of the film Bernie

    Linklater non giudica mai, che carino

  2. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Bernie

    The Patron Saint of Texas filmmakers delivers this docudrama-esque tale that could only have ever happened in East Texas.

  3. Aardsy's rating of the film Bernie

    That was one fancy episode of 48 HOURS.

  4. Fabio Souza's rating of the film Bernie

    best part is the town residents speaking and acting

  5. Andrew Sax's rating of the film Bernie

  6. ‏ㅤ's rating of the film Bernie

    Well, I know the Bible says Jesus turned water into wine, but it didn't say liquor store wine. It had to have been non-alcoholic wine, because it didn't have time to ferment.

  7. Glue Sniffer's rating of the film Bernie

    Świetna czarna komedia, w której za przyjacielskim uśmiechem Jacka Black'a kryje się mroczna tajemnica zmuszająca go do jeszcze szerszego szczerzenia zębów mającego na celu odwrócenie od siebie uwagi

  8. truffraud's rating of the film Bernie

    mordant, weirdly charming, and self-aware; bernie's story is just, drenched in absurdity. the talking heads are the best parts. even if the town is full of wacky, outré characters that we could easily be directed to look down upon, and laugh at rather than with, linklater's careful to treat these (fictional) testimonials with respect; he pokes fun at small-town texan life with obvious love.

  9. John H. Nomedal's rating of the film Bernie

    Based on an newspaper article; Bernie blends facts and fiction with actual interviews of people who knew him and staged scenes leading up the infamous murder and its aftermath. Jack Black portrays the good hearted killer with such a warm ease that no wonder the town was split on the verdict. A real texas-story from texan filmmaker Linklater! Sadly its not so re-watchable as some of his other movies. 3.5 stars.

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Bernie

    Another great achievement from Linklater, this has the feel of a hybrid documentary with all the main parts acted perfectly by Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Matthew McCougheney, and the rest being played by the actual people in the town where the events transpired and who knew the characters this film is based on. Nobody does it quite like Linklater these days.

  11. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Bernie

    So many different elements of this film were just right up my alley in terms of what I like in movies. I love black comedy, and Jack Black's hilarious portrayal of this overly-lovable funeral home worker(/ murderer) made this one of my favorite performances by him.

  12. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Bernie

    So many (stylized) truths about Texas here-- I know the culture, and recognized "my people" at times.

  13. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Bernie

    At the beginning I was quite curious. The story slowly started to unfold in a narrative tone and I was not sure what exactly to expect: murder-crime?; scary-thriller?; comedy-funny?; odd-strange? After a strong start "Bernie" fell off constantly. I had the feel "Bernie" doesn't know itself. Linklater is to be accused not having utilised the great potential of the story. Jack Black doing very good, his best role ever!

  14. antibody's rating of the film Bernie

  15. Egoisms's rating of the film Bernie

    I didn't laugh once. Very lackluster.

  16. taniaburrito's rating of the film Bernie

  17. flamingo jones's rating of the film Bernie

    Jack Black gives one of the best performances of his career.

  18. Mario Gaborović's rating of the film Bernie

    I had very low expectations of this, but...

  19. noahboahk's rating of the film Bernie

  20. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Bernie

    Truly unique, yet another proof that Linklater knows how to constantly reinvent himself. The surreal tone is particularly captivating, which is elevated by Jack Black's superb performance.

  21.'s rating of the film Bernie

    homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto

  22. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Bernie

  23. Silvia Grădinaru's rating of the film Bernie

    it deserved a 3.5 evaluation actually, but for a different type of role from Black, MacLaine's performance and the fact that it was a rendering of an actual story, it made it to 4 stars in my eyes.

  24. Alden's rating of the film Bernie

    It's better if you see this film without knowing anything about it, like I did. Bernie's politeness and niceness are entertaining at first. Then it becomes interesting when he comes across a bad-tempered absorbing Shirley McClane. And after comes the shocker. I found traces of Linklater's genius on the black-comedy tone, the way he shot the crucial scene, the inclussion of townsfolk declarating and Bernie's ambiguity
