  1. Ethan's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor are at the top of their form in this incredible film about sexual repression and hidden desires. Also the cinematography is beautiful.

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Low rent Tennessee Williams.

  3. cihangir21's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Une intéressante réflexion sur la fragilité des apparences quand le masque de la respectabilité et de l'hypocrisie s'émiette et que surgissent l'inavouable et le refoulé ..... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

  6. Dale Wittig's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Shot in color by Aldo Tonti & Oswald Morris, printed in sepia, the film takes the title literally. It contains one of Brando’s most nuanced and passionate performances as a repressed homosexual army Major. Robert Forster, in his first film, plays the object of his desirous gaze, a Private with an affinity for horses (one he shares with the officer’s wife, whose room he worshipfully invades at night as she sleeps.)

  7. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Quite a film! Bizarre performances (Taylor, Brando), heavy symolism everywhere, a-tonal music, a golden tint etc. Hidden gazes, bars, whips, secrets, desperation, mirrors, naked horse-riding, thunderstorm finale - it's all there. It's up to Brian Keith to provide a tiny bit of normality.

  8. Mx Nihil's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    "Have you ever been collared and dragged out into the street and thrashed by a naked woman?" A dark, twisted tale of obsession, voyeurism and sexual repression. Marlon Brando is phenomenal in this.

  10. bulgrin's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Great in many aspects, it was a return for Brando. You definitely should go for the "Golden" version of this film. This special colour effect is essential for style and atmosphere.

  11. José Neves's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Cinematography by Oswald Morris.

  12. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Huston et al. enact interpersonal complications as bruising, bombastic melodrama; much of the film's entertainment value derives from watching these actors quiver and crack up like the exquisite hams they are. But even through the golden murk, we see what attracted Huston to McCuller's story: the way it examines loneliness and longing, exposing how we imbue them with romance by aestheticizing the real.

  13. Bernardo de Lacerda's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    A movie about "it" and more. A great great role for Brando and Elizabeth Taylor devoting as ever. A must see!

  14. ℛℰℬℰ.'s rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    The synopsis above makes me want to bathe.

  15. Noiresque's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    One of Brando's top 2 or 3 films *and* performances.

  16. mjgildea's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    A colossal waste when you consider the talent involved. If you were to let a bunch of theater students gang rape Tennessee Williams, then lobotomize him before sitting him down in front the world's most shitty typewriter Reflections in a Golden Eye is what you'd end up with. Anyone who had anything to do with this movie should be ashamed of themselves.

  17. Zissou's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Weird, over the top, great movie

  18. Andre A. Neves's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Classic John Huston’s approach: Picks a genre (this time is southern-gothic), chooses some outstanding actors (Brando and Elizabeth Taylor), and throws in a lot of personal drama. To me works always.

  19. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Reflections in a Golden Eye

    John Huston directs this stylish and engrossing Southern gothic drama with excellent performances (though Elizabeth Taylor goes a bit over the top); superb and unique cinematography; and an extraordinary atmospheric score by Toshirô Mayuzumi. The film's biggest flaw is its slow pacing, it could have used more energy in a few places - but this is still a strange, memorable, and unjustly forgotten classic.
