  2. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    The performers play their roles with such gusto, they redeem this dubious and closeted adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play. You get frustrated (definitely the right word) with their cluelessness, but you have such affection for them. Even the no-neck monsters.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Le célèbre "climax" tourmenté des pièces de théâtre Tennessee Williams, superbement retraduit par le talentueux Richard Brooks... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Ege Okal's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Characters are good but the storyline with Skipper is just dull

  5. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Very good Tennesse Williams adaptation that can't be compared with the failed 'Sweet Bird of Youth' shot 4 years later by the same director. Madeleine Sherwood plays a nightmarish sister-in-law. Highly recommended.

  7. Carl Penguin's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    not as good as the book, but it has its own special place in my heart

  8. Rupert Hunter's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    3.5? I really want to love this movie, but the censorship enacted under the Hays Code and the quashing of Williams' critique of homophobia and misogyny renders the dynamics of the film bewildering. However, the actors' performances are strong and don't betray the same censorships as the screenplay. Something of the play's intent remains intact through them.

  9. Aaken's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    It is a pity that Hollywood censorship toned down the homosexual theme of the play. Tennessee Williams - and also Paul Newman, was so famously unhappy about it that, although he had to do the rewrites for the screenplay, he urged people not to see the film. However, just for the acting, it is a feast. Taylor, after a few decorative roles, is at last given a role worthy of her talent. Burl Ives is amazing.

  10. Ariel Rowan's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    brick was great + heartbreaking

  11. Diogo CF's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Adaptação claramente censurada da peça de T. Williams: o guião simplifica e tergiversa, omitindo as sugestões freudianas e homoeróticas do texto original, infantilizando muitos dos diálogos. Apesar disso, as interpretações são brilhantes e o filme trouxe luz a crises profundas da sociedade norte-americana até então geralmente encobertas no cinema "comercial".

  15. pluviosity's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    when it comes to my greatest actor list, Liz Taylor never made it in.

  16. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Yet another well-written piece from Tennessee Williams' string of pearls.

  17. Murat Erdem's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Williams yine insanoğlunun röntgenini çekmiş. Bir sinemasever olarak bu filmleri gördükçe, günümüzde yaşamaktan azap duyuyorum.

  18. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

  19. robin's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Too theatrical for me, but after all it is from a stage play.

  20. Meg's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Great cast, great acting.

  21. corticortidor's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Great performances. The censorship was unfortunate.

  22. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Bonito e interessante no geral, mas há pequenas coisas que falham.

  23. Algitya's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Yep. One of Newman's power show.

  24. Jessica McFarland's rating of the film Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

    Definitely the sort of acting that you dream about seeing in a film. The plot is well paced, and the dialogue is sharp and quotable. Newman does an amazing job at portraying his character, and even though censors at the time removed homosexual subtext from the finished product, the feeling is still there in his delivery - I picked up on it right away. Good stuff.
