  1. Merekkio's rating of the film Burn!

  2. mubianer's rating of the film Burn!

    Spectacular cinematography. Angry anti-imperialist epic in the mood of the 60s. For some reason nearly forgotten. A bit too long.

  3. Den-Leroy Kangalee's rating of the film Burn!

    Brando & Pontecorvo made a masterpiece! The honesty, intelligence, passion, and nerve it took to really dig their heels into the white man's pathology & the colonialist mind-set was remarkable & most likely will never occur again. It's these types of transgressive and deeply probing films that are radical and risque. Making films about sex and drugs is easy. Making films about racism isn't.

  4. Eugene Kotlyarenko's rating of the film Burn!

    love all the twists and turns; italian dubbing rarely gets to me, but unfortunately here i miss brando's voice — at least in the version i saw screened

  5. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Burn!

    The film that if any one of European descent wishes to make something about the horrors of Western Expansion and Racism much watch. Its one of the VERY FEW that truly GET IT RIGHT. Its bare, honest and truly remarkable how deep these guys dug, plus it has simply Brando's greatest acting performance in History (he even said so).

  6. Knut Morte's rating of the film Burn!

  7. Tony Pauletto's rating of the film Burn!

    It ambitiously attempts to be a sophisticated epic, but over-reaches. Instead it resembles a peculiar kind of plot-heavy exploitation. The eccentricities of the film, however, are it's greatest delights. From Brando's painfully mismatched hair/beard combo to the extensive dialogue replacement, Burn! has plenty B-quality charm. But underneath is a story with heart that shines up through the cracks.

  8. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Burn!

    Pontecorvo's epic is interesting, but difficult to really connect with. Lavish color cinematography makes for some arresting visuals, set to a superb rousing score by Morricone - but the themes are laid on thick. Brando plays a fascinating character, but I don't think I'd rate this among his best performances, as many others (including Brando himself) have. Worth watching, but not completely satisfying as a whole.

  9. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Burn!

    I loved the film for varied reasons. Brando was proud of the film late in his life thaough he had differences with Pontecorvo while making the film. My full review appears at http://moviessansfrontiers.blogspot.com/2006/11/23quiemada-1969-italian-director-gillo.html
