Ratings & Reviews

  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    When you don't love yourself it's hard for other people to love you. People made a lot of excuses for him because he was an artist, a writer, and so he felt entitled. Love is best when love is tragic.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    The generally wonderful dialogue-- with its eloquent turns of phrase and memorable lines-- can't support the lackadaisical plot and the mostly non-effective melodrama, at least, until the last minutes of heart-wrenching perfection. This could've been much more exciting, instead, it's a much-too mellow effort from Ray, with a typical hard-ass performance by Bogart, that's serviceable, but quite predictable.

  3. Django's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    An even more caustic, if less straightforward, assessment of Hollywood than Sunset Boulevard. A world so insulated that even the apartments face inward where once hopeful artistic aspirants are ground into self-absorbed, self-destructive, self-loathing downandouters. If you like noir, this should be on your shortlist of must sees.

  4. Sara Sousa's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

  5. Ben Nash's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Ray > Hawks. Big Sleep eat your heart out.

  6. mootz15's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    They can't go on like this, with suspcious minds.

  8. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

  9. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    "I was born when she kissed me, I died when she left me, I lived a few weeks while she loved me."

  10. hemachandra's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Does Bogart have to play himself in every film of his? I couldn't get beyond the sheer unlikeability of his character. His portrayal of ego-maniacal genius left a bitter taste.

  11. Bruno's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    I lived while she loved me, how we cling to self pity when nothing and no one else is to cling to, and how tragic it is that we bring about to ourselves our own misery, and call it art and artistry and tortuous feeling, and how is it that I might write 'I', instead of 'we', for I will take this myth of hopelessness and misery at its word and swallow every frame, and wallow like a pig in my own loneliness, and love it

  12. McOpinionated's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Perfectly ok. I liked the incidental scenes at the beginning. 3 & a half. Didn't quite get the sense of this as a truly great noir, but the main characters were good.

  13. P D Dawson's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    A wonderful noir thriller that plays with the notion of innocence, guilt and blind love. Just because someone is innocent of one crime, doesn't mean they are innocent of all. Nicholas Ray plays the suspense at a low boil for the majority of the film, letting doubt and fear gradually build up into a frenzy.

  14. 'king Harold's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Never negotiate with anger. Prefer Bogey as a hero but enjoyed the bleakness.

  15. darth_david@msn.com's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Magnífica. Nicholas Ray at his best. Bogart está espléndido en este drama lleno de la tensión psicológica que tan bien supo expresar Ray en Bigger than Life.

  16. Maribou's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    On first viewing this smart did-he/didn't-he keeps you guessing to the end with each twist and turn. The dialogue sparkles. Second time around I couldn't get beyond the sheer unlikeability of Bogart's character

  17. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    A superb, dramatic nor that stars Humphrey Bogart as a screenwriter prone to violent outbursts. But does that mean he killed an innocent woman? The accusation certainly affects his relationship with Gloria Grahame, with suspicion and tension running throughout the majority of the scenes.

  18. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Dark, twisted and yet so glamourous. The precursor to a lot of the modern Netflix drama's about wealthy people, their evils and relationships.

  19. Richard Stopford's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    I didn't realise how good this was until the end. By the time I got there, I realised how clever the start was. Must rewatch!

  20. DanielSpeight's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

  21. Sergiu Scripcă's rating of the film In a Lonely Place

    Pretty sure Bogart never got better material (or was used this well) in his entire career.

    Isn't Hollywood miserable?
