  1. bryanvmh's rating of the film Crossfire

    Telling that the list of people who are discriminated against are "Quakers, the Irish, the Italians, the Jews" and stops there.

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Crossfire

    The 3 Roberts: the father figure, the laconic tough guy, and the real tough guy. This is the breakout role for Robert Ryan. They changed the subject in the book from homosexuality to antisemitism for the movie. No small irony that Mitchum was a Holocaust denier, and Ryan was a liberal.

  3. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Crossfire

    3.5 stars. Good movie with excellent performances all around. Well shot and nicely paced.

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Crossfire

  5. Love Walked In's rating of the film Crossfire

    This movie has found the sweetest place for a coming-back soldier's reunion with his wife. It's a midnight movie theater.

  6. Sophia Park's rating of the film Crossfire

    Mitchum is fun. But let's stop dancing around what we really mean, right? And then they just stop dancing.

  7. MS1915's rating of the film Crossfire

    Aside from Mitchum, a pretty boring and stagnant picture.

  8. SpacePirate's rating of the film Crossfire

    Welcome to the Rob Ryan show

  9. jbizarro's rating of the film Crossfire

    "Hating is always the same, always senseless. One day it kills Irish Catholics, the next day Jews, the next day Protestants, the next day Quakers. It's hard to stop. It can end up killing people who wear striped neckties."

  10. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Crossfire

    "Noir doesn't exist without that visual elaboration."

  11. Daniel Metcalf's rating of the film Crossfire

    A well directed tale told in noir style, lots of shadows, lots of flashbacks. Interesting to see how the film deals with bigotry, but there isn't enough suspense to make it truly great.

  12. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Crossfire

    Tight, claustrophobic depiction of post-war anxiety turning in on itself. The various versions of the night of the murder are a fantastic portrayal of a drunken night of very bad decisions.

  13. msmichel's rating of the film Crossfire

    '47 best picture nominee told an early tale of American anti-Semitism through a tale of a murder investigation involving some soldiers recently returned home. Interesting that it beat 'Gentlemen's Agreement' to theatres by a number of months but is now mostly forgotten. Also strange that the novel it was adapted from was about homophobia not anti-Semitism showing what was considered safer material during that time.

  14. Matt's rating of the film Crossfire

    A little watered down from the novel and it's not much of a mystery (you know who-done-it the moment you see the guy). It's not bad, but I wouldn't see it again.

  15. Daniela's rating of the film Crossfire

    Very good at capturing, I imagine, post-war malaise. I feel a little bit of pity for the patheticness of the anti-Semitic guy at the end.

  16. danhofstra's rating of the film Crossfire

    Pretty entertaining film with a nice twist at the end...still it's a little too didactic to enjoy on a regular basis

  17. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film Crossfire

    Ahem. The above still is from Macao, also starring Grahame and Mitchum

  18. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Crossfire

    As we all know (or at least should know), didactic movies don't make masterpieces. At best, they're entertaining. So is CROSSFIRE. Thanks to Gloria GRAHAME, to Paul Kelly's (The Man) scenes, to Robert Young and his more than weary attitude and to Robert Ryan, one of the most underrated American actors. Recommended.
