  1. bartkl's rating of the film Missing

    Another interesting film about political corruption by COSTA-GAVRAS, consisting of roughly the same ingredients as Z, making it to a great extent as interesting as that one. MISSING is somewhat more sentimental and less raw, but it does have a score by VANGELIS. Bottom line: if you like realistic, interesting stories of political corruption, Z is a masterpiece and if you liked that you're going to like this as well.

  2. Mr. Gumby's rating of the film Missing

    In 'Missing', the first film made in the USA by director Costa-Gavras, we found Sissy Spacek and Jack Lemmon wandering by Chile, in the roles (respectively, of course) of the wife and the father of man who disappeared leaving no trace. The film is the search for that individual, a social activist who perhaps knows too much to the parameters established by the Chilean military. Among the bureaucratic means that...

  5. Peregrine's rating of the film Missing

    We're just two slighty confused people trying to get connected to this whole damn rotten enchilada!!!

  6. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Missing

    Deservedly won the Palme d'Or. Features career best performances from Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek. More relevant now than ever before in its dissection of the U.S. government's corrupt manipulation of other nations and the many people who suffer as a consequence.

  8. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Missing

    Costa-Gavras has balls of steel. A great film that twists and turns with the best of them, but it has power thanks to Lemmon (cast against type), who is so believable and personable as a man witnessing his patriotic idealism shattered in slow motion, along with the rest of us.

  10. Ahmed Hasan's rating of the film Missing

  11. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Missing

    Here is an example of political filmmaking at its finest.

  12. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Missing

    Gavras gives 'Missing' an eerie docu-drama feel that sets it apart from other major politically charged studio releases. Although being a very distinctive example of the typical American direction vs. European direction, it does bring back to memory other phenomenal achievements such as 'In Cold Blood' and 'Call Northside 777'. This one is also a must for aspiring filmmakers.

  14. Brennan's rating of the film Missing

  15. Tigrão's rating of the film Missing

    Easily one of the best political thrillers I've ever seen. It's incredibly well acted, really sensibly directed, photographed and edited. The score by Vangelis adds a strange tension to the film and the script is perfectly written (fluid and meaningful dialogues, powerful scenes and silences...). A MUST SEE!

  16. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Missing

    One film where the change-of-heart of a character is done with lots of attention to detail.

  17. Mugino's rating of the film Missing

    Btw, the roundup of articles all refer to the wrong "Missing".

  18. Moamen's rating of the film Missing

    though the plot wasn't really strong or interesting , the film was very well crafted and directed ...... really great work from Costa Gavaras .....

  19. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Missing

    La película, sencilla y directa, te atrapa y no te suelta hasta su triste y honesto final. El guión es perfecto. Jack Lemmon y Sissy Spacek dan una cátedra de sobriedad y precisión interpretativa, a pesar de que la terrible situación que atraviesan sus personajes se prestaría para el llanto fácil y el histrionismo. Gran cine político afincado en las emociones humanas y no en discursos o panfletos.

  20. Steve's rating of the film Missing

    Very well crafted and interesting film.

  21. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Missing

    Proof that the American Empire, in the broader sense of its agenda, does not really care about its own citizens.

  22. S Campbell's rating of the film Missing

    Excellent political Thriller with a Hunman heart thanks to Lemmon and Spacek. The coup scenes are well staged and very unsettling

  23. Jake Mulligan's rating of the film Missing

    Saw this tonight in a class, brilliant film. Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek are both, as mentioned below, perfectly natural, emoting with the subtlest movements and expressions. Their friendship development is totally believable, in contrast to basically all other films of the type, and the story is edited down tight, with tons of tension and a no punches pulled narrative. This being a studio picture is unbelievable.

  24. Byron Brubaker's rating of the film Missing

    Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek are so natural. Have you ever watched the show Without A Trace? This is basically a feature length version of that show, but with no detectives. The family has to search for themselves. It also seems to have some similarities to the newer movie, In the Valley of Elah.
