  1. Benjamin Bland's rating of the film Dishonored

    Some nice direction. Marlene Dietrich was in it. Everything else about it was absolutely dreadful: acting, plotting, pacing. No idea what Fassbinder saw in this one.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Dishonored

    Invraisemblable, mais fascinant !

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Dishonored

    Gran interpretación de Dietrich. Ella es la actriz que es símbolo de deseo, y en este historia se da de forma literal. Una prostituta convertida en agente, es decir, siempre su sensualidad como herramienta de seducción para los hombres. Von Sternberg en tanto es constructor de un mundo de claros oscuros. Se respira dramatismo. El honor y el romance como enemigos en medio del mundo en guerra es temática central.

    really loved this one. Dietrich and von Sternberg's collaborations are really coming into full swing for me. her dry delivery and wry facial expressions within von Sternberg's world where, it seems, love just cannot fully be realized, or rather, is never easy, works to bring about a charm that leaves me disarmed. it seems, for Dietrich, love is simply a metaphor for willingness to succumb, even if it means death.

    The party scene and the cat!!!

  6. smndvdcl's rating of the film Dishonored

    Dietrich was a master of mystique whilst Sternberg turned cinematography into an artform. An engaging film if not their collaborative magnum opus. 3.5

  7. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Dishonored

    Visual rapture, as should be expected from Sternberg—every shot feels like it should be mounted on a wall. I love the setup for a sexual allegory, but as sexual allegories go, it's curiously passionless. The interactions between Dietrich and McLaglen are so stiff and stilted that I had to wonder if Sternberg was up to something I just couldn't see. For a vision more perversely alive, seek out The Scarlet Empress.

  8. Blumes's rating of the film Dishonored

    Progressive, succinct, and beautiful.

  10. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Dishonored

    Deeply silly stuff - Dietrich goes to the firing squad dolled up like she's on her way to a fashion shoot for Vogue - but helluva stylish.

  11. Eugene Kotlyarenko's rating of the film Dishonored

    this is exactly what i've been looking for! deitrich's costumes, demeanor and delivery are so on point! every scene is basically an iconic stunner! von sternberg's use of foreground and background explicit yet necessary

  12. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Dishonored

    I think this is the 19th consecutive 5-star movie I've rated, & what a phenomenal one it is. Sternberg and Dietrich are aware of the elusiveness of reality, and of its physical presence. At times, Dietrich--the way she moves,speaks, is lit, is directed--seems to almost pierce through matter into some other dimension. But the force of the material world-its customs and its traditions to boot--always pulls her back.

  13. Scott Lucas's rating of the film Dishonored

    Sternberg and Dietrich pile on the textures --along with the wit, glamor, and perversion. Even the editing technique is layered and gauzy. The dreamy audacity of it all is still dazzling.

  14. José Neves's rating of the film Dishonored

    Cinematography by Lee Garmes.

  15. Riri's rating of the film Dishonored

    A perfect end to an imperfect life

  16. Dave's rating of the film Dishonored

    Was going to be a 3/5, because quite honestly the story is a mess and, surprisingly, not all that interesting...that is, until the last 20-25 minutes or so. Then all of the elements that make a great von Sternberg film come together perfectly, as atmosphere and photography give an atmospheric and dramatic edge to everything. Not near his best, but still a must for fans of the director.

  17. orangey's rating of the film Dishonored

    Hasn't aged as well as other of von Sternberg's films.It's doesn't have any great visuals and the at times it's just downright camp.
