Ratings & Reviews

  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Heat and Dust

    A somewhat uneven tone - largely as a result of the timeframe switches and split narrative - provides a bit of this and a bit of that, but no satisfying whole. That said it is faithful to its locale and provided a useful bridge (artistically and commercially) to the generally more rounded adaptations that followed on similar themes of social nuance and one's place in society, if not the world.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Heat and Dust

    Un film déroutant et majestueux, sur le thème de la promiscuité et de la cohabitation de deux cultures tout à fait opposées, qui peut dérouter par son parti pris de lenteur... www.cinefiches.com

  3. lauli's rating of the film Heat and Dust

    It's a good film, but it doesn't quite live up to the novel it's based on, which is surprising considering that the author was also the screenwriter. I did find it a bit disjointed and boring at times.

  4. Patricia's rating of the film Heat and Dust

    I just couldn't help but think that there was something missing in this picture. I just wanted to see more detail in this picture.

  5. aquixoticlife's rating of the film Heat and Dust

    Heat and Dust attempts to tell three separate tales occurring at three disparate times and places, in hopes of tying them together in an organic and fruitful way before the conclusion of the film. It is enough to say that in this all-important attempt it fails miserably.
