  1. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

  2. Mariana Cruz's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    The cynicism of our current days might make it difficult to fully appreciate this movie,but therein lies its beauty.Don't you wish you lived in a time when a movie ending with a message of hope and redemption actually felt satisfying?James Stewart's charming naivety and decency,together with Jean Arthur's captivating presence as well as the inspiring,heartfelt speeches turn it into a classic you can't afford to miss.

  3. 'king Harold's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Much more hammy than Mr Deeds, very disappointing. The newspaper riot sequence beggared belief, with scout carts being rammed etc - unintentionally hilarious. The inside stuff on the workings of the senate just made it naff. Can filibustering be heroic? Nope.

  4. Stuart's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Wonderful. This needs to be shown to all governments, where are the Jefferson Smiths of today? A very relevant film which shows how the underdogs can win. Also the quintessential James Stewart performance. www.thedeepfocus.com

  5. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    MASTERPIECE. Not more or less to say about it.

  6. Ethan's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    This is a powerful film and Jimmy Stewart was such a great actor and combined with Capra's optimism, it made you feel like an honest man could really make a difference in this world. A little melodramatic at times but a little melodrama is good in some cases.

  7. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Essential in Trump's era of political disorder.

  8. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Politicians should be forced to watch this every week, while strapped to a chair (preferably).

  9. Superfrog's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Another anarchist Capra, bit not his strongest one. The treatment of media influence to cover the wealthy is good except that in real life it works. Unless you are Teresa May, and you pick a Mein Kampf meme as your campaign line. The end device is weak.

  10. DanielSpeight's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

  11. Rowan Ah-See's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    not enough dam-building scenes but otherwise enjoyable

  12. Oliver Goddard's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Not quite Legally Blonde 2 but still good.

  13. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    It’s a shame to watch this movie nowadays and think of how much of it still rings true (just watch the scenes in which news of Mr. Smith’s stand against the system is withheld from the majority of the press without thinking of recent protest movements) but that also just reminds you of what a timeless movie it is. Well worth two hours of your time.

  14. Mert Kaya's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    what a great political drama. this movie could be 5-star if you end it at 1:30.

  15. Amy's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    What horseradish? Mr. Smith gets eaten by the lions the moment (Clarissa) Saunders leaves.

  16. MistaRichard's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

  17. Sergiu Scripcă's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    The Smith character takes a while to begin seeming credible, and it's the supporting cast (particularly Jean Arthur) that keeps things afloat until Stewart gains some momentum.

  18. FISCHER's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Mr Smith / Mr Deeds, même combat. La démocratie populaire, peut-être idéaliste, mais pas populiste ni naïve, contre les forces cupides de l'argent... www.cinefiches.com

  19. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Rewatched and re-loved. Essential film.

  20. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    A man of the people, a true hero, is systematically smashed to pieces on the world’s stage. This is a film about against the odds success, yes, but it is also about tragic failure, the failure of a country. Capra may lay on the heavy doses of patriotism, and he may make the case for the nation in the end, but for me it is plain to see the obvious folly, the obvious unfulfillment of the American way.

  21. Aardsy's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Goofy and idealistic, but... hey, it works.

  22. yovargas's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    Hoo boy did I LOVE this story! Naive Idealist fights against The Corrupt Powers? Done well, I eat this stuff up, and this was done very well, largely thanks to its great cast. Stewart owns the movie but his female counterpart nearly steals the show. LOVE her character! Misses my highest marks due to some clunky directing and, yes, getting pretty darn hokey in parts (ie. the ending) but overall, great stuff: A-

  23. muh.'s rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    capra was often too sacchariney for my taste but since i think everything deserves the benefit of doubt i embarked on this one. imagine my surprise when this turned out to be quite a good movie that holds its optimism quite high which is more than welcome in this age of cynicism. last but not least, stewart, rains and arthur are more than wonderful in their roles. so there you go capra, you win this one.

  24. lndah's rating of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

    At this year, movie was a 17 years old rebel boy. I love to watch optimism in old movies.
