Ratings & Reviews

  1. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Dementia

    Very dark, surreal at times. The guy who ended up without hand looks like uglier version of Orson Welles. Actually, the solution with hand is among many moments that are surprising due to their open brutality (i.e. surprising for fifties).

  2. Surreal Feel's rating of the film Dementia

    What a great movie! Watched it at night and made me feel like having a nightmare. The guy on the cemetery wearing a stocking mask seems to be a brother of the proprietor of the gambling house in Salvador Dali's dream sequence in Hitchcock's "Spellbound"!

  3. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Dementia

    Fantastic cinematograpy and montage, great score by George Antheil.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Dementia

    Oeuvre étrange et maladive, muette et nocturne, unique réalisation d'un cinéaste parfaitement inconnu dans la profession (le fils d'un exploitant de salles de l'état du Minnesota pour certains, le pseudonyme d'un réalisateur célèbre, pour d'autres) qui rappelle quelquefois l'atmosphère évanescente et cauchemardesque de David Lynch. www.cinefiches.com

  7. Thomas's rating of the film Dementia

    I havent felt this way since I first saw Freaks (1932).

  8. Odradek's rating of the film Dementia

    Nightmarish Noir Masterpiece.

  9. panagiotatos's rating of the film Dementia

    7,5/10, a cult classic. Haunting music, psychoanalytical references, nice photography and sets, mysterious plot. It makes you wonder what is truth and what is not.

  10. Boaz Debby's rating of the film Dementia

  11. Sidereus's rating of the film Dementia

    Kind of stupid story. Some interesting transitions, though

  12. nematomaranka's rating of the film Dementia

  13. Marcin Żuraw's rating of the film Dementia

  14. Aaken's rating of the film Dementia

    Experimental film, German expressionist style, 50's film noir, Jean Cocteau, the spirit of the Beat generation... A George Antheil score, sung by Marni Nixon, Short Rogers in the night club scene... Watch the version without the narrator (which is ridiculous and later added to attract the drive-in crowd) Strange, bizarre, oneiric and disturbing, very modern.

  15. Stefano Pesenti C.'s rating of the film Dementia

    Disturbing kind of surrealistic nightmare....

  16. L.F.G.'s rating of the film Dementia

    truly oneiric (you've got to see the silent version first)

  17. Kerem Sadi Ekiz's rating of the film Dementia

    It was original and even brave for it's time

  18. Esra Yılmaz's rating of the film Dementia

  19. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Dementia

  20. feza's rating of the film Dementia

    Birçok kişi için birşey ifade etmeyecektir bu film fakat yapıldığı yıl itibariyle iyi bir korku-gerilim filmi olmuş.

  21. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Dementia

    Expressionism, horror and noir in a bundle. What else can we ask for?

  22. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Dementia

  23. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Dementia

    A murderess succumbs into madness in this wonderful and surreal film noir. There's no dialogue but it's actually not silent as you can hear the screams and the laughs and the cries, which really add to the schizoid feeling. Considering that "Dementia" was made in 1955, it feels like it was decades ahead of its time. Thanks to Mubi for putting this on programme, as I don't think I would've ever seen this otherwise.

  24. msmichel's rating of the film Dementia

    If Guy Maddin coveted 50's noir instead of pre-sound pictures his work might look something like this demented treasure. John Parker's sole feature was a dialogue free journey into madness that follows a young woman into a world of wife beaters, criminals and other deviants....or perhaps just into her own sick mind. Well shot, on an obvious low budget, with a great score by George Antheil. Worth seeking out.
