smndvdcl's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

A typically grandiose Selznick film with Vidor as his vessel. The film surpasses its caricatured characterisation if perceived poetically - love and hate, lust and power, desire and destructive co-dependency - the tortuous entanglement between lovers has universality. Lillian Gish is indomitable. Gregory Peck represents a foolish alpha. An intriguing archive in cinema.
