Ratings & Reviews

  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Carnival of Sinners

    This beautiful, clever and creepy 1943 French film edges out The Hands of Orlac for the #1 spot on my list of Severed Hand Movies!

  2. Diderot's rating of the film Carnival of Sinners

    A handsomely made morality tale in the Faustian vein. Mainly worthwhile for the masked table of ghosts (an almost Surrealist moment) and their flashback tableaux sequence toward the end of the film.

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Carnival of Sinners

    ***1/2. This is a movie to see because it's one of the rare French fantastic films. Some scenes strongly remind us of the German Expressionist movement. Very, very interesting.

  4. patchwork's rating of the film Carnival of Sinners

    rivisitazione del mito del Faust, surreale e surrealista con numerose trovate visive che hanno fatto scuola (come gli spiragli di luce filtrante a inquadrare gli occhi, ripresi mille volte). in mezzo alle tante chicche sparse, spicca la scena della tavolata mascherata, da antologia.

  5. Landen Celano's rating of the film Carnival of Sinners

    What an obscure little gem this is! Entertaining and innovative with a lush visual palate. Seek it out if you have the resources.

  6. Sean Keeley's rating of the film Carnival of Sinners

    A great film, sometimes funny, sometimes terrifying, always wonderful and unpredictable. There's some great delirious Expressionism going on here.
