Ratings & Reviews

  1. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Louis Malle's film is among the more mature directorial debuts I have seen- it's elegantly directed and its conclusion is morally, if not emotionally, justified.

  2. Luis Pires's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Forget Godard, this is where it's at.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Check your horoscope before planning a murder. "Today is a good day for staying inside and reading a good book." This is one hell of a debut film, starring the glorious Jeanne Moreau. It's a nail biter with great music from Miles Davis.

  4. Mattia Ricotta's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  5. xuxuxush's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    most magnificent walk in film history

  6. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    The machinery of the downfall is quite stupendous. Not to mention the impeccable cast, cinematography and exquisite music.

  7. MaryKatherine's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    The soundtrack changed my life.

  8. NicoIlGermanico's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  9. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    What makes what works in this work is Moreau. Everything else is whatever a 25 year old bourgeois kid thinks is cool and edgy (I should know). Malle would make very good to great films later, at least.

  10. Nachtreich's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  11. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  12. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    When crime becomes comedy, when spies and killers are trapped by their own stupidity, when kids fail to become men, it's the entire image-action that collapses into itself, in such spectacular fashion!

  13. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    A stylish little crime drama from Louis Malle. The only thing that really bugged me about it was the criminal competence of our four main characters. Being an incompetent criminal is something that I can buy into from at least three of them; but being an incompetent person is a completely different story, and there are some completely idiotic character decisions that happened seemingly to just move the plot forward.

  14. gld48's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Jeanne Moreau's hair deserved an Oscar alone. Fantastic film. Beautiful in black & white too.

  15. merzka's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Karma for an antagonist. Malle at his most easily digestible.

  16. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  17. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Jeanne Moreau walking is a work of art. Along with Malle, Antonioni knew it. Walking to a Miles Davis score is beyond description.

  18. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  19. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Great story of irony and fate, with a marvelous Jeanne Moreau.

  20. smndvdcl's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Louis Malle, a valedictorian in French cinema in the late 50s who could never fully match the magical quality of his debut feature. One could have a field day picking at the film's lack of continuity, its inconsequential temporal shifts, its fragmented causality. Then you realise that it is indicative of an emerging New Wave school of thought inherent in the work of Truffaut, Godard, Becker and Melville. Marvellous.

  21. Mr. Marston's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  22. Endless Eye's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    I've heard the claim that jazz music wasn't synonymous with noir films until after this film came out, or films like M Squad with music by Count Basie in the following year. Is it true that the jazz failed to enter noir until the late 1950's? Anyone know? Either way - despite its flaws, this is a wonderful old flick by Louis Malle.
