  1. gld48's rating of the film Seconds

    Fantastic camera work, performaces, aesthetic, score etc. Who knew Rock Hudson could kick it around the room like this?

  2. brick_bro's rating of the film Seconds

    Pretty strong as a sci-fi narrative, with a sinister ideas about individuality, but ultimately just another cautionary tale about taking the world for granted.

  4. João R's rating of the film Seconds

    It was an interesting, eerie experience to see such shattering of a fantasy. The way the story is shown is irrepreensible. While the first half of the movie and its last portion were delightful, I felt that some of the scenes after the "intervention" lost their way. Nevertheless, this was really good - but could have been brighter.

  5. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film Seconds

    really really enjoyed this it reminds me so very much of the twilight zone, which is always good. the grape squishing scene is kinda a bit.. i dunno..unnecessary? but i think i might just need to rewatch it

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Seconds

    D'une puissante noirceur autophage qui secrète et alimente sa propre pérennité, l'existence de cette société parallèle avec ses propres structures hiérarchiques et ses codes particuliers d'existence et de maintenance, plonge le film dans un maelstrom d'interrogations paranoïaques, voire liberticides qui ravit et perturbe durablement. www.cinefiches.com

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Seconds

    Superb Rock Hudson performance. In such a vain society, you can be born seven times and still yearn for fulfillment. Highly recommended.

  9. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Seconds

    Not, as FilmStruck would have it, an "existentialist" film--if anything, the nightmare in Frankenheimer's twitching, perspiring, aggressively twilit Sterling tribute is one of ineffaceable essences, not radical freedom--except perhaps with respect to everyone's favorite Sartrean formulation: Hell is other people. And the rub is that there may not be any other kind, within you or without you.

  10. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Seconds

    Regardless of what coworkers thought of working with him, Frankenheimer did succeed in producing some excellent films, of which this is one. I've never enjoyed Rock Hudson so much as I did in this film. Could easily have done without the bacchanal orgy scene, which took up too much time and could have been done in a much better, less obvious way.

  11. lIZUKA's rating of the film Seconds

    "A fun house mirror world that never looks quite right because it never is, and never was."

  13. jenstor's rating of the film Seconds

  14. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Seconds

    A real hidden gem from the 1960's. Seconds concept of a mysterious company capable of creating second lives is a brilliant one that carries the film into an extended episode of the Twilight Zone. Stylishly shot to encapsulate a helpless paranoia of Rock Hudon's predicament. The middle is a warbling detour, but the sinister finale and inquisitive opening make this a brilliant piece of parable sci-fi.

  15. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Seconds

    We learned that one person can reborn with Rock Hudson's face, but the rest of them...

  16. raggiodisole's rating of the film Seconds

    Careful what you wish for. A satire of the American dream, feverishly and uneasily tracing the line from everything to nothing. Creepy

  17. Martin Jensen's rating of the film Seconds

  18. Crina Cătălina's rating of the film Seconds

  19. Sprungler's rating of the film Seconds

    A beautifully executed dystopian thriller, fully embedded with identity and metaphysics philosophical concepts. At times kafkesque, Seconds rises up to the expectation I had about it, given the fact that I am a big Kafka fan. I recommend it for the dark philosophy and for the camera work, which is superb. Weak points: editing and continuity.

  20. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Seconds

  23. Leigh Collins's rating of the film Seconds

    Incredibly inventive, ahead of its time and well thought through, with a fascinating depth of character. Brilliantly acted and directed too.

  24. LASHLEY's rating of the film Seconds

    Scarily ahead of its time
