  1. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Il grido

  2. Jim's rating of the film Il grido

    ★★★★½ /35mm/ Antonioni’s masterpiece, seamlessly captures his themes of alienation through the anguished plight of a man rejected, aimlessly wandering the desolate landscape until he is physically and spiritually worn out. A remarkable film, enhanced by Venanzo’s divine cinematography and the superb performances of Cochran, Valli and Gray.

  3. Henrique Barbosa Justini's rating of the film Il grido

    paisagens desoladas, protagonista sem rumo até perceber o tamanho da loucura que habitava dentro dele. sem esse clichê das fotografias refletirem a complexidade mental da personagem; mas ambas devastadas por um pós-guerra que invade as províncias rurais

  4. mis marg's rating of the film Il grido

    the time of my parents, sad film and hard times . things were less developed, simpler just as harsh.

  5. SonOfRambow's rating of the film Il grido

    Not sure why I put this film off for so many years but it was just absolutely perfect. My god you could frame every shot of this film on a wall. I live for cinema like this.

  6. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Il grido

    Another fantastic bit of melodrama from Michelangelo Antonioni, this looks at a man who finds himself at a loss when the relationship with a woman he loves comes to an end. He cannot settle, despite having various opportunities for employment and other relationships, and struggles through life without allowing himself to properly move forward.

  7. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Il grido

    A triumph. Superbly sensitive performance from Cochran. Antonioni has a marvellous feel for the landscape, beautifully captured by DP Gianni Di Venanzo.

  8. Tja's rating of the film Il grido

    Il Grido (The Scream) is mainly memorable for its unrelentingly bleak and flat monochrome landscapes which reflect our hero's relentless ennui. Through this impoverished wilderness our engineer flounders, unable to hold down a job or a relationship. The state delivers the final straw by appropriating the wilderness and destroying the community. It's enough to make him scream.

  9. Madoc's rating of the film Il grido

    Apart from the interest of having a man at the heart of an emotional film, this film was fascinating due to the countryside and the atmosphere of post war Italy. His decent into taupe due to his broken heart is never sentimental. The atmosphere never draws us in too close so we remain quite objective. Bleak horizons and endless mud, it's almost as if the country is dying along with him.

  10. The Society of Malcontents's rating of the film Il grido

    casted out as bedouins and émigrés, we orphans of the neoliberal condition left to wander the desert plateaus. having lost everything, the lost children that have inherited nothing but précarité. indeed we cry, tired of itinerance, but our loss destines us for encounters. true action is not accomplished, but is a process in which we abandon ourselves becoming defectors. only nostalgia separates us from the unknown.

  11. AALC's rating of the film Il grido

    Grey landscape, lost soul in it, hope and tragedy... Sadly beautiful...

  12. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Il grido

  13. Nachtreich's rating of the film Il grido

  14. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Il grido

    Bleak Italian post-war realism that follows a douche trying to be less of a douche and failing constantly. Sometimes life is the biggest douche of all.

  15. Kortirion's rating of the film Il grido

    Easily the best "neo-realist" film I've seen. No surprise given the source.

  17. El Biffo's rating of the film Il grido

    Beautiful film about a miserable person. I guess that is why he slaps women around (the little girl, too) because he is a miserable jerk. Why does everyone just stand around and watch while he does it and no one says anything? It's difficult to feel sorry for him but I feel sorry for everyone in this picture. So much misery in post-war Italy produced a lot of great films!
