Ratings & Reviews

  1. Karthik's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    It is too bad that Stahl is so underrated (vis-à-vis Sirk at least), because beneath the absurdity of the plot motor (the Christic lefthand-righthand "formula"), and beneath even the compositional purity that undercuts the silliness of script (credit: Stahl), the wonderfully precise cutting (especially in the first 10 minutes) which keeps cutting to and away from the moments of crisis (CONTD in comments below)

  2. José Neves's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    "Desire" list: Robert Young # 2. And what a magnificent young animal he was in this magnificent austere film about excess.
