  1. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Marty

    7.4/10, my review:

  2. kubrickhallway's rating of the film Marty

    I wish everyone in the world were like Clara and Marty. This is truly a feel good film to curl up with after a long day of being out in the world dealing with people who aren’t like Clara and Marty.

  3. José Neves's rating of the film Marty

    A filmmaker of subjects and its suitability to an invisible and sparse language, a mere executant of issues intended to be exemplary and/or polemical, and that, along with Stanley Kramer, represented what more limited existed in classical Hollywood. It's an ancestor of the films and filmmakers of today that rely on "sensitive" issues to appease standard consciences - in fact, the vast current trend.

  4. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Marty

    The phone call, and the decision to make it: I replay this scene in my mind frequently, as encouragement, and a warning.

  5. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Marty

    Part theater, part cinema, a bit of social realism, and moments that feel like something from a fairy tale. It's easy to see why this particular Best Picture winner was so popular, as (like Boyhood) it offered audiences a reflection of ordinary middle class life that stays optimistic and humane, even in the face of difficulties. All this, plus a Mickey Spillane takedown. Can we get a remake, where Marty's on OkCupid?

  6. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Marty

    "Middle of the Night" by the same writer and the same director is a better movie.

  7. Tutu888's rating of the film Marty

    One of the sweetest movies you can imagine. I still wonder how Betsy Blair felt when she's called "a dog" throughout the whole movie?

  8. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Marty

  9. Maudy Puteri Agusdina's rating of the film Marty

    Marty yang ingin mendapat cinta menghadapi tekanan dari dunia lama dan orang-orang sekitarnya. Seperti nonton It's A Wonderful Life dengan sedikit Ozu-esque. Manis dalam realita yang pahit.

  10. muh.'s rating of the film Marty

    it seems that familial pressure when it comes to dating and marriage really didn't change much in the past 60 years. while themes of love and loneliness don't really lack, movies seem to disregard the common folk, or in this case self-admitted "dogs". basically it's like listening to "how soon is now?" but finally getting a happy ending.

  11. film_lies101's rating of the film Marty

    60 years on this shines as an example of how to do a story simply and honestly

  12. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Marty

    It was sweet and really heartwarming!

  13. Andrea Evangelista's rating of the film Marty

    Splendide le vecchie italoamericane. Se poi parlano di un certo "Emilio Di Giorgio" sono davvero autentiche.

  14. msmichel's rating of the film Marty

    An american classic story of loneliness and familial pressure to settle down and get married after one has somewhat passed the age of easily meeting someone. Chayefsky's script is full of undertoned insight but well rooted in the familiar. Great story, great dialoque and such humanistic performances by leads Borgnine and Blair. "college girls, let me tell you. that's one step from the street"...

  15. Norma Jean's rating of the film Marty

    This movie breaks my heart, But I love it...

  16. twistedthursday's rating of the film Marty

    One of the greatest yet simplest story of finding love ever told in cinema. Ernest Borgnine made a very endearing, loving protagonist. Put simply, this film warms my heart. <3

  17. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Marty

    Wonderful film about 2 very lonely people who think that love has passed them by. Ernest Borgnine is perfect as Marty and Paddy Cheyefsky's screenplay is a real delight.

  18. BUSHRA's rating of the film Marty

    i thought the nuances of blair's performance were one of the most endearing i've ever watched of an actress. i loved too that even though this was a love story, it spoke of all the themes of ny in that day.

  19. LoverofLeCinema's rating of the film Marty

    A great picture about loneliness and not losing hope. Very funny, sad, and ultimately beautiful. Holds up well today.

  20. Rubia Carolina's rating of the film Marty

    A great and subtly comedy/drama about common people. Just as life it is, neither more nor less.

  21. pjjrfan's rating of the film Marty

    A great story, great writing, great performances especially Borgnine as a guy who had come to grips with his mediocre looks, life and future. And then finds his soul mate.

  22. Nick McGaw's rating of the film Marty

    Gimmicky, borderline insulting, but man, it really is heartwarming. Grade A, first class Hollywood corn, and Ernest Borgnine outdoes himself. His scenes with his Ma are no great shakes, but when the love interest comes into the picture, you know why he was cast. There are moments of middle american unhappiness which rival Chris Ware, but just when you're yelling at the screen for him to snap out of it, he does!

  23. Movie Blabber's rating of the film Marty

    Ernest Borgnine...simply wow.

  24. catch_33's rating of the film Marty

    A simple but extremely effective film about loneliness and the pains of feeling average and insignificant. Both leads are perfect and there is a brutal honesty to the performances. Watching both characters help each other to grow in confidence and self-sufficiency is extremely touching, and their entire meeting is charming and affecting. Watching good things happen to good people is a rare experience, its refreshing.
