Ratings & Reviews

  1. Ghostman's rating of the film Hud

    Hud is a masterclass drama & classic Hollywood at its best. About the titular Hud seen through the eyes of his teenage nephew, the film paints authentic portrait of western rural life. Most notable of all is the cast's tour de force of stellar acting. Another quality that shapes Hud into a great picture is the Oscar-winning cinematography by the great James Wong Howe.

  2. Severus Snape's rating of the film Hud

  3. Mr. Gumby's rating of the film Hud

    A film that has the best a classic American drama can give: great actors, a bright and brilliant script, a conventional directing with some touches of originality (especially when it can accentuate the heightened emotions of a sequence with subtle camera movements). The game and conflict of generations in all of its splendor, and Newman is more devastating than ever.

  5. Mx Nihil's rating of the film Hud

    "You know something, Honcho? You don't look out for yourself, the only helping hand you'll ever get is when they lower the box."

  6. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Hud

    Newman's performance is a little forced but Patricia Neal is amazing. She anchors the viewer's perspective, observing at close distance the clash of values and toxicity between the men, simultaneously seduced and repulsed by Hud's dangerous potency and narcissism. Intelligent direction from Ritt, never preachy, and great cinematography from Howe, contrasting the daylight's open expanses with the shadows of the night.

  7. DanB3000's rating of the film Hud

    Newman plays a perfect narcissist, a thought provoking character on the inauguration of Trump

  8. ofNatalie LA's rating of the film Hud

  9. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Hud

    A melancholic ode to a word vanishing in a cloud of dust and tumbleweed. Paul Newman gives a rollicking performance as the ultra masculine, volatile, cowboy Hud hellbent on alienating all around him. Like The Last Picture Show or A Streetcar Named Desire, Hud is a classic piece of Hollywood drama built on powerful characters, a superb script & a poignant setting. America was fast changing in the 1960s & Hud knows it.

  10. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Hud

    Newman is superb in this heady mix of human fallibility and tension. And the main title theme by Elmer Bernstein is a new favourite of mine.

  11. dannyjp1981's rating of the film Hud

    Beautifully photographed anti-hero drama/western, with terrific performances (peak-sexy Paul Newman and fantastically complex Patricia Neal) and some really memorable moments. It feels somehow wonderfully subversive yet also very 1960s.

  12. Magic Lantern Alison's rating of the film Hud

    This is a Great film. Classic American complex family/political drama, beautifully shot, lovely pace.

  13. Steve G.'s rating of the film Hud

    I prefer the sequel, Hud The Chud.

  14. Simon Reid's rating of the film Hud

    Patricia Neal was rightly recognised across the board for her performance as the world-weary housekeeper Alma - the beating heart of this flawlessly cast film about poisonous masculinity. The Oscar for James Wong Howe's cinematography also seems well deserved.

  15. SiIencio's rating of the film Hud

    A sex icon can immediately enhance and transform the qualities of the most insipid and well-beaten of scripts. And Hud is no exception. The film is Paul Newman and barely nothing else, a classic moralistic tale about the impending demise of the old times with Newman ala James Dean rebelling without a cause, an enfant terrible bouyed by blue eyes and Apollo features inavertedly blossoming as a good actor.

  16. 'king Harold's rating of the film Hud

    Brutal,bleak, unremitting cruelty and bitterness, no respect, love or hope, we go on.

  17. chloe's rating of the film Hud

    a Texan Shakespearean Cowboy Tragedy

  18. First Lady Dré's rating of the film Hud

  19. Cristian Necsulescu's rating of the film Hud

    The American democracy checks and balances at work. The Father --the conservative. The Tradition. Hud --the liberal. The New-waver. The Nephew --the permanent tension. Out in the world, you'll find out. Remember me: Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller, Tennessee. Timeless. The old truths. We'll answer.

  21. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Hud

    Paul Newman!!!! What else to say? I was initially surprised by the black and white till James Wong Howe's credit showed and I knew this is going to be a marvel to watch. A fine picture.

  22. SpacePirate's rating of the film Hud

    Great cast, great direction, beautiful camerawork. This one is a triple threat. Must see

  23. El Biffo's rating of the film Hud

    One of the roles of the type that Paul Newman played best, that of a charming fuck-up.

  24. LNLee's rating of the film Hud

    Disillusionment and fear of change/passage of time, death of traditional lifestyles, etc at its finest.
