  1. db's rating of the film Bluebeard

    Despite some moments of genuinely interesting filmmaking, and some engaging performances, this film is ultimately sunk by its very silly screenplay and largely unnecessary music score.

  2. José Neves's rating of the film Bluebeard

    Cinematography by Jockey Arthur Feindel and Eugen Schüfftan (uncredited). "Desire" list. Carradines father, in one of his most intensive characters, an amazing performance full of shadows and nuances. His voice and his face made him, simultaneously, the most frightening and the most attractive of the killers.

  3. Flaspeneer's rating of the film Bluebeard

    The flick wasn't really in Ulmer's voice, just as the soundtrack stole passages from Mussorgsky, then veered into faux comical tweeting after failing to create suspense. Stylistically, the noir splice didn't work (Brooklyn accents from simpering dames in wigs). I'd leave Bluebeard to Michael Powell -- since Ulmer's strengths are elsewhere -- but it was fun to see a young John Carradine play the matinee idol role.

  4. Ethan's rating of the film Bluebeard

    A gritty noirish spin on the Blubeard tale.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Bluebeard

    Atmospheric chiller that contains one of John Carradine's best performances. An artist driven to kill his models is hunted by the French police while his love for a young woman may be the one thing that could get him caught. No classic but enjoyable tale that marks one of Ulmer's better outings.
