  1. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Fedora

    Truly a weird film. Despite being made in the late 70s, it looks and feels like it’s a gothic horror story from the 40s: the orchestrated music, (over)acting, the flavours of Hollywood glamour, and the story itself about stardom, faked lives, insanity, obsession... Like its main character, the whole movie seems to have landed in a future it doesn’t belong to. But that’s what Wilder aimed at, I reckon.

  2. Traum Baum's rating of the film Fedora

    "People are tired of what passes for entertainment these days—cinema vérité, the naked truth, the uglier the better."

  3. Ariel Rowan's rating of the film Fedora

    the lead male character was kind fo unbearable ... i hate self deprecating pride worn on the sleeve ... a passive-aggressive aged masculinity.. loved the visions of psychosis, the drawer full of gloves

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Fedora

    Blu-Ray. To make a young woman look older so that her mother looks younger. That's cinema. Billy Wilder's penultimate film gets better and better as time goes by. Strongly recommended.

  5. enzographie's rating of the film Fedora

    Old school Hollywood Cinema style. Trying to keep something alive that is long gone, And that's for good reasons. Lazy and linear storytelling with one plot twist, really mediocre acting and just a bad technical execution! Cringe!

  6. Ben Deiß's rating of the film Fedora

    Grand old cinema, self-reflective, funny, weird and entertaining.

  7. AVA's rating of the film Fedora

    Glamourös,moralisch, -verwerflich

  8. Alexine Chanel's rating of the film Fedora

    A class 70' cocktail of gaudy colours, bad fake crying, overplayed divas, smoky voice-off, complete with violins and a rather grizzly plot, actually very entertaining!

  9. Epinephrin's rating of the film Fedora

    This was one great Billy Wilder movie - great cinematography, great nature, great plot, lovely twists. I liked it.

  10. Taliedo's rating of the film Fedora

    Beautiful, predictable and very much unprobable - why is she keeping the doctor? - why is the daughter returning to her? - and staying??

  11. Mr. Gumby's rating of the film Fedora

    A movie from the 40s made in the 70s. Wrongly described as a sequel of "Sunset Boulevard", "Fedora" is a story about identity crisis, and Wilder made an analysis to the death of his cinema, of the Hollywood glamour, extinct with the new era. That old cinema, now a museum piece, tries here to resurrect. And even it is impossible on a technical level, Wilder could get it at a moral and symbolic way.

  12. Ethan's rating of the film Fedora

    This is a true gem from Billy Wilder's later career and makes a great companion to Sunset Blvd.

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Fedora

    Un indéniable chef-d'oeuvre du grand Billy Wilder, étonnant film à méandres et à tiroirs, entre vérité et mensonge, apparence et réalité, qui aborde avec bonheur le thème mythique de la star, de l'illusion cinématographique et de la cruelle ambivalence de l'acteur. www.cinefiches.com

  14. Faustgelopoulos's rating of the film Fedora

    Favourite film from Billy Wilder

  15. Jordany's rating of the film Fedora

    hands are a problem, so are knees

  16. ammar's rating of the film Fedora

  17. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Fedora

    Too contrived. It's a rather clumsily told cynical story with no real punch.

  18. hubertguillaud's rating of the film Fedora

    Le grand Billy Wilder signe la un film un peu désuet sur la mort d'un certain cinéma, ou le fond rejoint la forme, tant sa mise en scène et le jeu des acteurs sont surannés. Un film sur la fin d'Hollywood, comme une visite dans un vieux hôtel qui connu la splendeur.

  19. Jason's rating of the film Fedora

    A real grower. More like a Wilder-conscious Robert Aldrich film I dreamed up than an actual Billy Wilder film I actually saw. Superlative and unreservedly bonkers.

  20. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Fedora

  21. Roscoe's rating of the film Fedora

    Marthe Keller just doesn't have the magic needed to keep this film afloat, and the film is a botch. Nice try, but just sad in the end, with some rather nasty digs at changing audience tastes and a few too many dated gay jokes.
