Ratings & Reviews

  1. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Medea

    You have no reasonable 'point of entry' and yet you watch in spellbound silence. When it's over you have so much that you want to say and no way to articulate it.

  2. Shantal Abrego's rating of the film Medea

    La introducción es perfecta y María Callas es una excelente Medea. No le doy cinco estrellas solamente porque faltó agregar un dragón a la escena final.

  3. Bekriah M's rating of the film Medea

    It describes the combination of witchery and revenge without much visual tricks and sophistications. Maria's facial features are an excellent choice to portray Medea. The Göreme region of Turkey is a beautiful location, and so is the Iranian and traditional Japenese music.

  5. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Medea

  6. Pierre.F's rating of the film Medea

    "Seul celui qui est mythique est réaliste, et seul celui qui est réaliste est mythique" dit le centaure à Jason. Une réécriture de Medée qui affronte le problème du sacré et du réel. Toute l'opposition se joue entre Jason, l'homme rationnel et Médée, la femme sacrée. Jason se constitue en négation par rapport à Médée : le mythe, seul, lui permet de ressaisir le réel que le refus du sacré constitue en un refoulé.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Medea

    Une somptueuse fresque antique qui reste l'unique film interprété par La Callas...

  8. ermete polpette's rating of the film Medea

  9. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Medea

  10. Final Girl ™'s rating of the film Medea

    would have been one star without Maria Callas... not a good retelling of the Medea story but her portrayal was perfect, emotive. says so much while barely saying anything

  11. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Medea

    A performance beyond performance.

  12. Marinos Koutsomichalis's rating of the film Medea

    One Pasolini's greatest masterpieces. A classic through Pasolini's eyes: Medea kills her own children to take revenge upon her ex, all these accompanied by Iranian dastgah and Japanese Biwa music. "No e non insistere ancora. É inutile. Niente é piú possibile ormai!"

  13. QuincyArthur's rating of the film Medea

    raw and gnarly just like how it reads

  14. Diogo Fernandes's rating of the film Medea

    O início é assombro, com o diálogo entre o sátiro/poeta e Jasão. Depois o resto é um pedido de desculpas, com os Gregos a comer batatas cozidas e uma jangada a fazer de Argos.

  15. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Medea

    Callas like a full force gale; ably demonstrating a level of passion & pain far beyond the capacity of others. Standing in the flames, she defies "it's useless; nothing is possible now", capturing both the sadness of a woman broken & betrayed and the disappointment of the filmmaker confronted by a corruption of the modern world closed off to the magic of myth & legend; no longer able to exist simply, without shame.

  16. Andreea Stoica's rating of the film Medea

  17. Ostermyers's rating of the film Medea

  18. El Biffo's rating of the film Medea

  19. Stevie's rating of the film Medea

    Great cinematography and a great lead performance by Maria Callas but I just wish Pasolini had concentrated more on making films about the present world, even if he found it despicable and had nothing good to say about it.

  20. Mellow Dude's rating of the film Medea

    first time watch: instantly riveted. perhaps another would up the ante

  21. Silvia Bombardini's rating of the film Medea

    this film should be my wardrobe.

  22. Kamran's rating of the film Medea

    Medea (Pasolini, 1969) - 78/100 ~ VERY GOOD. A lamentation of the ancient world, Pasolini’s Medea (1969) illustrates profoundly the strange, the mystical, and the unknown. Review at next Projection:

  23. ghinnet's rating of the film Medea

    Magnificent and yet someway humble

  24. Howard Orr's rating of the film Medea

    Full of the striking head-on compositions so typical of Pasolini, it works well because, a little like "The Colour Of Pomegranates", it marries its bold frontal style with the strangeness of the world it portrays. It laments the ancient, mythical world as one of the gradual removal of wonder and magic from human existence. It's real horror is not Medea's murderous actions but the loss of the mythic -and the operatic.
