  1. josé neves's rating of the film Maldone

    4,5. 35mm, rewatch. A Marxist variation of doppelgänger: the proletarian is the one who kills his reflection of great bourgeois in the mirror and resumes his previous life of a free bum, a kind of "Boudoux qui retourne aux eaux", libertarian, anti-bourgeois. The images follow the agony and vertigo of the protagonist, as only non-talkies cinema made it: rising it in a pictorial free composition, towards the whirlwind.

  2. musidora ducasse's rating of the film Maldone

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film Maldone

    Maldone's Gypsy heart cannot abide a life of ease and luxury. He rejects bourgeois life and the "oppression of contentment" in this exquisite Avant-Garde Narrative by Jean Grémillon, one of the greatest French filmmakers of the Silent Era (and beyond).

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Maldone

    Oeuvre étonnante de maîtrise technique, doublée d'une puissante dramaturgie...

  5. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Maldone

    "'We are SMART cinephiles!'"

  6. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Maldone

    Grémillon parece ser un director influenciado por el cine de Abel Gance y Jean Epstein. Se nota en el maneja creativo de la cámara y en los pequeños encuadres que descubren un tacto por lo estético. "Maldone" es un filme sobre la naturaleza, el destino negado. Lo mejor del filme es el final, para cuando el personaje no solo retorna a sus raíces, sino que además parece estar poseído en su retornada imagen.

  7. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Maldone

    ★★★★ you may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with you. specially, if you got the hots for a gipsy woman.
