What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Island in the Sun

    35mm. Sacred classic cinema: Zanuck produced and swallowed his director in a luxury scheme (scope, technicolor, stars) and in an uninteresting fiction (a pile of soap-opera common places), where the worst is what the film reveals against its own will: Hollywood's colonial invasion wherever went - racism it's not only a theme here, is inscribed in the images. With all this, Rossen was minimized.
