  3. dionysus67's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    Unjustly underrated Polanski film that deals with issues of power, submission, transgression and infantilism in genuibely cinematic terms. Gorgeously photographed it depicts dalliance and subsequent recourse to fetal positions against overwhelming and calmly threatening forces not only in psychologically instructive terms but mainly in visual (e.g. hennery, tide) symbolism. Expertly acted, it thrills and captivates.

  6. Lance L O T's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    It is one of those films where you can still tell that many things are not yet well formed and well defined in the director's mind to be a great film but it does have great performances the myse-en-abyme that the film is progressing too and the ending in itself of characters that trapped others, but ended up being trapped themselves inevitably. A very good watching but there are some caricature moments I'd left out.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    Dans un décor hautement incongru avec des personnages / pantins, entre farce et grotesque, un petit chef-d'oeuvre inclassable, brillant, gratuit pour lequel on reconnait déjà la patte de Roman Polanski... www.cinefiches.com

  9. grotesc's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

  10. James Mackin's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    This had this great undercurrent of tension throughout the whole film, and the best part was seeing all the cracks starting to form. Also, that kid Horace was a little shit.

  11. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

  12. Dalibor's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    Out of all director's takes on black comedy this is by far the most refined. Surreal and absurd satire of his later topics, evoking tons of possible allegories (for a minute I considered Great Britain as the main one). Plot, however, losses its edge upon removing focus from main three characters, becoming too preachy and less of a weirdly slapstick drama about nothing.

  13. Aardsy's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    What an odd little movie from an odd little man.

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    A really odd little film. Polanski really was up for trying anything in the 60s.

  19. Martin Wilson's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    A man's home is his castle. It seems that George's dream of the good life was always doomed. The arrival of the intruders, Dickie and Albie, is the death knell. This film is magnificently offbeat. When Albie croaks, his place is taken by another whining weasel of a man. Dickie and George make a terrific double act. As the remarkable beach scene reveals, Stander and Pleasence should have gone on the road together.

  20. Ronja's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    great cinematography and voices of owls

  21. lina maj's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    Demonstrates nicely that you can make visually stunning, plot and sound-wise satisfying films on low budget. Also, great naturalistic acting!!

  22. Muraki's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    the cast were enjoying themselves in this movie. the dialogues were funny and the scenario was so damn awkward.

  23. Rikard Westeman's rating of the film Cul-de-sac

    An odd little film, but very enjoyable. Interesting genre mix, deftly handled by Polanski. Memorable characters.
