  1. bartkl's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Dreyer is on his way to become one of my favorite directors. Repeatedly he shows great skill in treating conflict regarding religion and human psychology, all set against neat historical depictions of earlier ways of life. The dry style puts focus on the complex psychology at play, as seen clearly in this film. How the religious mind can dwell is often beyond my comprehension, and Dreyer captures just that.

  2. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    This tension from the first minutes of the film, amazing actresses, the twist between oppressed and oppressor that seems to be proportional to how carefully covered Anna's hairs are. And the music, bible, singing boys.

  3. O...'s rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Brutal. Desesperanzada representación de la represión y la ira estúpida del fanatismo religioso; ceguera de una población inmersa en el profundo miedo a la muerte. La ira, pues, como salvación, como salida del crepúsculo último de la nada. Lágrimas tristes que no se curarán.

  4. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    7.5/10 my review: https://wp.me/p1eXom-3fO "It requires a certain acquired taste and religious nourishment for Dreyer’s sense of rhythm and a story so execrably backward."

  7. Aditya Watts's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    A Thundering Masterpiece! Drama, Theatre, Lighting! Magnificent!

  8. George Harvey Bone's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Just stunning - one of the greatest films of all time. Brilliant in its scenario and the parallels to the Nazi occupation. Brilliant in its acting and use of camera. It will also leave you breathless to think that humanity could behave like this - and still does.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Deuxième film parlant du réalisateur qui reste un inoubliable chef-d'oeuvre sur l'intolérance, le sectarisme et la mortelle cruauté de l'Inquisition... www.cinefiches.com

  10. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    This one treads a fine line: is it the complete and utterly white stigmatization of the female desire OR the champion of it and a satire of the totalitarian (male, enforced by their mothers) institutions? I honestly don't know. That Anne, at the end, comes to believe herself that she's "guilty" kind of saves the film, as it can be seen as a satire/tragedy. Everything before that is beautifully shot but very suspect.

  11. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    10 - How great it feels to deem a film to be among your very favourites, only to love it even more on a rewatch. Mind you, that is the only inkling of joy one can realistically squeeze out of "Day of Wrath"; to call it a harrowing experience is tantamount to calling Captain Beefheart a slightly peculiar dude whose music is a little offbeat. The camerawork and framing in this are also nothing short of marvelous.

  13. nessmj's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    4.5 - my first dreyer. absolutely lovely in its assessment of sin as perceived by society, the multi-faceted pressures it creates and the potential consequences thereof. the inquisitorial portion of the film is harrowing, wonderful camera work and use of light as means to open up movement and characterization.

  14. ermete polpette's rating of the film Day of Wrath

  15. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    That this was made when Denmark was under German occupation in WW2 helps explain the subject of denunciation and dictatorship. That it is so astonishing is wholly down to the artistry on display. The final sequence is truly heartbreaking.

  16. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Some truly haunting imagery, can really see the influence on Bergman. An overall feeling of oppression and fear.

  18. film_lies101's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    This makes 'The Witch' look like sugary fluff

  19. Trapped In The Cinema's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    https://trappedinthecinemablog.wordpress.com/2016/07/28/day-of-wrath-1943/ "The following film is certified PG. It contains witch burning and mild language."

  20. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    more valuable as a strong Bergman prototype than anything else

  21. animalcalls's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Masterpiece. All that needs to be said.

  22. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Day of Wrath

    ADD a review?! the hell am I supposed to say that is not completely superfluous? there's nothing to be said about this. just to be watched

  23. Dignan's rating of the film Day of Wrath

    Shows the dehumanizing process of the Inquisition, one of the most important co-projects of the Catholic church and psychiatry.
