  3. Aaron C Jones's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Truffaut called it the "Beauty and the Beast" of Westerns, adding that Sterling Hayden was actually the beauty. I'm struggling to describe the film, but it's like if someone had a dream about a western and got all of the canonical details of what you'd expect from a 50s Western wrong/reversed.

  8. jenstor's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    4.5 - the end drags, but honestly just wow

  9. lbunuel's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Ray & Crawford & exploding colours in a Western miracle full of lush studio interiors, amazingly conspicuous wallpapers and unimitable poetics.

  10. gld48's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Gorgeous colors. Second Joan Crawford film of the day - she doesn't take no messing around in this one either. A subversive western with kitschy sets and costumes that is surprisingly brutal at parts. Enjoyed.

  11. Ben Nash's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    A genderbending noir Western/critique of McCarthyism/psychosexual powerplay. Jesus Christ...I mean Jesus Christ!

  12. thelastronaut's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    This film has it all. One woman out for revenge, a second woman ready to stand her ground, but both women afraid of love. A man running both away from and towards his past. A gang divided and up against a wall. A posse, weary of death, that is dressed for a funeral.

  14. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    In a film sometimes labeled a “feminist wester,” it’s interesting that the best thing about it is Sterling Hayden. Joan Crawford is great too, mind you, but it’s all about that dry sarcasm coming out of the wonderful things the script gives Hayden.

  15. Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Anti-HUAC allegory, subversive feminist Western, luridly stylized Trucolor extravaganza, all of the above? I typically don't care for Westerns, but I'll make an exception for a prime example of Ray's considerable talents and one of the most stunningly transgressive films to ever emerge from the Hollywood studio system.

  16. jonijtr's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    one of the most melodramatic western ever, also a hell of the commentary of anti-fascist, American populace, and female empowerment, the hate relationship between Vienna & Emma is such stellar

  17. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Carico di buone speranze per merito della magistrale sequenza iniziale, mi sono poi ritrovato ripulito di quest'ultime nel momento della rapina in banca, che le ha fatte sparire assieme all'oro della psicopatica Emma Small. Dalla fuga di Dancin' Kid e dei suoi sgherri fino agli ultimi 10 minuti finali, il film è stato un movimentato memento del perché non amo questo tipo di film.

  18. Log Lady's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    A visually gorgeous and subversive rejection of the usual boring male Western. The downfall of the narrative/story is thrown against the wall by the delirious and fierce passions of love and hate, slight campiness, excellent compositions, delicious use of color, allegorical aspect, and great performances (particularly from Crawford and McCambridge). A dreamlike rebel in the Ford universe, and I love that.

  19. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    3-4. I walked away with the impression that the lead wasn't quite as strong as she's been talked up to be, but she is a willful, active figure who gets to face off against her own antagonist, who brings a splash of Freud to the story. And the movie does boast a vivid political subtext defiant towards Mccarthyism. That being said, some of the acting didn't hit me quite as hard as it could have, but it works overall.

  20. FISCHER's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Classique du western où éclate l'incontestable talent de l'étonnant trio Crawford / Hayden / Mac Cambridge. Une oeuvre que l'on ne se lasse pas de voir ou de revoir... www.cinefiches.com

  21. Lara's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    masterpiece with a different sense of others boring classic westerns impecable rythm and performances

  22. Renton47's rating of the film Johnny Guitar

    Signals a different evolution for the American West had there been such a strong delineation between the liberated and oppressed. Its attack on the puritanical mob who manifest the persecuted into outlaws is striking, both for the desires that drive their action, and the US exceptionalism it gives way to. Ray is cinema of the liberated; miraculous real-time first act, sound and set design, personalities and then some
