Ratings & Reviews

  1. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    The promise of Eastwood approaching the worlds of the Southern Gothic, magical realism & black comedy seems incredibly enticing, but the film disappoints. It's directionless; the story meanders; the comedy isn't funny & the drama isn't engaging. While the first act captures a sense of atmosphere & picaresque wonder, it soon gets lost in the flow of an uninteresting assemblage of plot with its weak characterisations.

  2. Django's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    This thing stinks like week old fish. From uninspired cinematography, to a dreadfully adapted screenplay, to bewildering casting choices and dreary performances, this movie has little to commend it.

  3. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    3.5. Kevin Spacey makes the movie.

  4. Felix Millan's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

  5. Cartaphilus's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    5 for Chablis 1.5 for Eastwood

  6. Bob's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    What could easily end up as a excruciating murder mystery is saved by a handful of colorful characters, with each of them being special enough to deserve a movie of their own. Although it doesn't seem to hold a repetitive value due to its overall and overlong mediocrity, it manages to bring an enjoyable first watch experience with satisfying plot and persuasive performances.

  7. Gianpiero Mendini [cineddoche]'s rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Mezzanotte nel giardino del bene e del male è uno dei film meno conosciuti e forse meno apprezzati di Eastwood. Il motivo di tale insuccesso (di pubblico ma anche, in parte, di critica) è probabilmente solo da imputare al fatto che non sembra un film di Eastwood. E’ pieno zeppo di dialoghi, di personaggi strani e accattivanti, di umorismo, di mistero e di morte. Il che lo rende un ottimo film, uno dei suoi migliori.

  8. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Eastwood aime les femmes. Son regard sur la femme - ici Lady Chablis, une performeuse transgenre exotique - nous surprend une nouvelle fois. En lui donnant un rôle majeur, il joue avec les codes, pour notre grand plaisir. Eastwood loves women. His gaze on the woman - here Lady Chablis, an exotic transgender performer - surprises us again. Giving her a major role, he plays with the codes for our delight. transgender

  10. Arcanus's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Boring, boring, boing. Evn the fags are unrealistic!

  11. Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Eastwood shows in this film he was a better director than an actor. Since the film is dragged out to an interminable and self-indulgent 2 and a 1/2 hours and is in dire need of at least an hour of editing, this doesn't say a lot for his acting ability. Watchable if you are an insomniac and appreciate underplayed gayness including the scene where a gay Christian says he is "out of it" now... (continued in comments)

  12. Diego Carrera's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Lady Chablis shines, all the rest is boring.

  13. eric gould's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Kevin Spacey, John Cusack and Jack Thompson co-star in Clint Eastwood's terrific screen adaption of the best-selling John Berendt book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Under the Atlantic Coast sway of oak tree Spanish moss in manicured Savannah, Georgia, the film unveils some deep secrets and sexual tension centered on the town's esteemed antiques dealer. A noir-worthy film based on a true story. Well done.

  14. Eduardo A.'s rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Great character that Frank dude/lady, actually was the reason why I don't give up on watch this. Concerning the film, I really think this was too much time just to say: America, be tolerant! And moreover, it was not even subtle.

  15. Elric's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Just read the book, it is fantastic. But if you want to see Savannah watch the film and close your eyes to the drama.

  16. Roscoe's rating of the film Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

    Really sad. A somnambulent performance from Kevin Spacey, and Mr. Eastwood's inability to conjure any sense of atmosphere at all, and his insistence on adding a heterosexual love story to the plotline help make this film a hopeless botch. The Lady Chablis alone rises above this film. Even Mr. Eastwood can't snuff out her brilliance.
