  1. Landen Celano's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Eastwood's efficiency as a director can be seen on screen for better and worse. While he shows an early talent for getting fantastic performances, a lot of the lighting and production design felt akin to exploitation film aesthetics. JW for the win though, right?

  2. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    A rather tentative formula-thriller - despite some odd jazzy and sexual longueurs adding little except length. Stock characters - ying and simple yang female counterpoints - hold it back from any sense of realism and modish editing merely adds noise without texture. Nevertheless it plots it's predictable way to the expected denouement passably enough.

  3. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Odd directorial debut of Eastwood. Chick from arrested development is good as a psychopathic female with a fatal attraction on Eastwoods radio DJ. A swaggering 70s film with a great lady killer performance by Eastwood. Must be seen for any serious fan of Eastwood and/or 70s Hollywood new wave

  4. Michael Peer's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    One of Clint's most overlooked and under appreciated films, Play Misty For Me shows a side to Eastwood that we rarely see anymore. Jessica Walter is fantastic as a psycho-stalker in her best performance ever put on film - next to Lucile Bluth. Eastwood creates a sense of unease while building tension effectively and planting seeds early. While it doesn't quite hold up like once use to, it's still a tense thriller.

  5. DenoResandono's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Clint Eastwood's Fatal Attraction. Well, not bad for a directorial debut. Eastwood did a pretty good job in this movie. He is still cool - although being stabbed (I think it was funny). IMO, this movie have some pace problems. It's kinda weird the plot moved into that "jazz festival" scene. I think it's not important. But yeah, it's very hard - to not mention Jessica Walter's erratic performance...

  6. P.P.'s rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Jessica Walter chews Eastwood up and then spits him out. Walter is the only interesting part of this film, and even still her character is written with misogynistic delusion.

  7. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    5.7/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-2jn

  8. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Poco inspirado filme que no pasa del nivel de un telefilm. Eastwood parece insertarle al guión típicas frases de un rudo cowboy, cuestión que a veces es divertida, pero en otras desencajada. Un problema más notorio tiene que ver con el proceso creativo de la trama. El director se ve obligado (y si es consciente sería decepcionante) a crear escenas en donde el tiempo corre. Una escena de amor y un festival. Demás.

  9. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

  10. film_lies101's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Lucille Bluth is in this film!

  11. Juan Barquin's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Not a bad directorial debut from Eastwood but his beige acting here (and a not-so-perfect story) sort of takes away from Jessica Walter's great performance. It's amazing to watch her in a dramatic role after watching her over and over as Lucille Bluth. Sure it's a little dated and Eastwood isn't in his comfort zone, but it's enjoyable enough.

  12. Algitya's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Love the music. but Eastwood looks like doesn't really capable with this kind of genre (Erotic-Thriller) . Nice try.

  13. Christopher Scott Zeidel's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    A 70s version of Fatal Attraction. Eastwood's character has a one night stand with a woman who becomes delusional about being in a relationship with him, and turns into his obsessed stalker. There is some overacting from the villain and it is dated in parts, but it is a pretty good thriller.

  14. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    This movie is mix of cheese and genuine quality. It's fun to laugh at Eastwood's sideburns and "cool jazz" dj voice as well as his newbie directorial indulgences (like forgeting the plot for what feels like 20 min & turning into a jazz festival doc). Jessica Walter is great, however the novely of this film has been cheapened over the years since by being ripped off a few times.

  15. Ethan Vestby's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Eastwood, as with most directorial debuts, seems to be trying to figure out what his style is...which is far more interesting than the actual story.

  16. Steve's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Jessica Walter's character is truly terrifying.

  17. Curt Milner's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    A terrific film, Eastwood's debut is a chiller worthy of Hitchcock, lean and very mean. Don Seigel's influence is felt (he even cameos) but this is arguably better than some of his later efforts.

  18. Matt Burgess's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    One of the earliest examples of lame-ass anti-woman 'thrillers' all sympathetic to boring white male leads who bang unstable women and expect us to care when they can't handle the consequences. Just as shit and offensive as Fatal Attraction. Why anyone would be obsessed with cardboard cutout Clint Eastwood (who even here has the sex appeal of rotting dust jacket) is beyond me, I guess the bitch really WAS crazy!

  19. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Clint Eastwoods's curious directorial debut. Despite the amateurishness, dated look and some arrhythmic narration, Eastwood manages some pretty intense moments. A fun 70s funky thriller.

  20. Amlethus's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

    Maybe in the early seventies this was something, but it doesn't hold up well for me. The philosophy of the "crazy" lady one had an affair with I find mildly offensive.
