  1. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    "Boxcar Bertha" is nothing more than a footnote in the great Martin Scorsese's career. The only reason to watch this is if you are an avid Scorsese fan and are interested in seeing a film from early in his career when he was just starting out. A lot of his trademarks are present, but this feels more like an exploitation flick mixed with a Bonnie and Clyde knock off than it does a Scorsese picture.

  5. SpacePirate's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Scorsese was apparently told by Cassavetes that he had spent a year making "a piece of shit." I have to disagree. This, imo, is one his most unique films, up there with Alice and King of Comedy. Felt sort of like a Butch Cassidy meets Bonnie and Clyde film. All the actors played off each other well, and the pacing is quite good throughout. He went on to bigger and better, but this is a very solid early effort.

  6. SoulBrotherNo1's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    5.5/10 - More Roger Corman than Martin Scorsese, more exploitation B-movie without much exploitation than artful drama, more clumsy than smooth. Still somewhat entertaining and has a unique low-budget depression era countryside atmosphere. This is the least Scorsese-like Scorsese film I have seen so far. Thankfully he listened to Cassavetes' advice, and followed his own dreams after this.

  7. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    more Roger Corman than Martin Scorsese...highly entertaining

  8. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Interessante opera di formazione di Scorsese,ancora acerba in alcune scelte registiche ma che sprigiona un indubbio fascino narrativo con la sua esclation di violenza.Ambientata durante la Grande Depressione,ha il pregio di raccontarci la difficile vita "di confine",più simile al vecchio West che a quella della città industrializzata.Bello il simbolismo del finale.Un Martin chiaramente in ascesa.

  9. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Modesta y hasta a veces aburrida trama sobre fugitivos, no solo el de los amantes, sino también el de una sociedad. Es lo más lejano, temáticamente hablando, al primer Scorsese. Incluso un filme que extraña estar a la línea de lo que produce o filme Roger Corman.

  10. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    An entertaining little anecdote of movie history. It stands on it's own and it's great to see how Marty started out as a hired hand, but it's jut not much (though that ending was awesome).

  11. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

  12. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    One of Scorsese's weaker films, sure, but still incredibly entertaining and well directed.

  13. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Scorsese's 2nd film is a breezy exploitation film that's a twist on Bonnie and Clyde. If it has one benefit it's that it taught him how to make a movie quickly and with a limited budget.

  14. Ludovica's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    I've just seen it on the big screen. And loved it.

  15. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Baaaad movie, but with very rewarding ending. Far cry from "Mean Streets" and his later pieces though...

  16. Andrew Infante's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Best ending shoot out ever. haha

  17. willythesalesman's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    you see the hint of the Scorsese we now know. the movie itself is okay to pretty good, but it isn't what you would expect from all the usual Scorsese films. I guess it meant something more to me as to see how a great director was in his early features.

  18. Sean's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    It's not Scorsese's best film, you can see the beginnings of a great director, I know this was his second film and it features some great performances from Barbara Hershey and David Carradine. The vision is there, the story sadly isn't, it just felt all over the place to me. A good start nonetheless for a great director.

  19. Matt's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    Martin Scorsese's most underrated picture.

  20. Publius's rating of the film Boxcar Bertha

    For a Scorsese flick, it is remarkably average.
