  1. MarcusArcus's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Not as trashy as you'd expect, particularly bloated; the story behind the film is much more enticing than the movie itself (the camerawork is spectacular, though).

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Un classique du western romantique et fiévreux qui demeure un monument mythique du cinéma par sa folle tragédie quasi biblique, la violente et charnelle beauté de Jennifer Jones et l'excellente interprétation des principaux acteurs. En prime, un dernier quart d'heure époustouflant qui demeure un inoubliable morceau d'anthologie... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Unusual for Hollywood to make a tragic western. Unusual to see Gregory Peck as a villain.

  4. bulgrin's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    The camera work is a five star. But the biggest problem of this film is and was the intervention of David O'Selznick.

  5. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

  6. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

  7. SpacePirate's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    A real overblown mess of a film, sad too bc I love Peck and Cotten. Selznicks worst production. Avoid at all costs.

  8. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

  9. José Neves's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Cinematography by Ray Rennahan.

  10. Joe Wakeman's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Trash! Trash! Trashtrashtrashtrashtrash!!!!!

  11. Trevor's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    The ending is simply perfect and one of cinema's greatest depictions of l'amour fou.

  12. Brandon Nowalk's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    So is this what Eastwood was on about in High Plains Drifter?

  13. Empire's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Unconventional western. There is a clear lack of pace, I guess some places in the west where quiet dull as in this movie.

  14. Cineastic's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Fucking unbearable. I very rarely every switch off films, but I couldn't get through the first half hour.

  15. fleur de chair's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    This film is so flagrant in its racism and disregard for women that it's hard not to find it funny. I couldn't take it seriously enough to be offended. Also, Gregory Peck makes a very sexy cowboy, even if his character was an arch-asshole.

  16. Dave's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    I actually found myself bored for large chunks of this. Has its moments, but not enough of them to save the whole effort, IMO.

  17. Hugo Resendiz Saldivar's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Hay cosas buenas y malas en este película, sin duda no tengo mucho aguante a melodramas, pero en este caso la escena final, como bien lo dice Luc Mallet, lo vale, el clímax de esta película esta muy bien realizado. Creo que encontrar una actriz en lugar de pintarla hubiera sido mejor, pero bueno la gran mayoría de paisajes eran dibujados, sin dementar, tiene muy buena fotografia.

  18. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    As hard boiled a western as you're likely to see (and that includes JOHNNY GUITAR). Gregory Peck is like a lizard just looking to be squashed and Jennifer Jones defines sultry.

  19. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    It had a way better ending than the book, I'll give it that.

  20. Neither/Nor's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Not l'amour fou. Inadequate reading of sexual ownership and male dominance, with a few typical western motifs tossed in for good measure. A rape victim is branded as "damaged goods" and is punished for life. A powerful finale as the victim and rapist savagely destroy one another, but then all the man has to do is say "I love you" to remind her of her place. Control enshrined as sentimentality for the impressionable.

  21. Joanna's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Number one guilty pleasure movie of all time.

  22. Roscoe's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    A deeply silly film with some good fun. Fun to see Gregory Peck play a person instead of a saint. Keep your eyes on the great Lillian Gish, who wipes up the screen with everyone.

  23. chanandre's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    [Cinémathèque PT #32: 35 mm]

  24. toddj's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Despite being overbloated and buying into silly 19th century narrative tropes about "mixed" blood, Jones' ascent of a rocky hill at the end earns the films three stars alone. Imagine Katherine Heigl breaking her nails and likely her fingers too digging into gravel and pulling herself up with nothing but her fingers and wrists.
