  1. Erik F.'s rating of the film Seconds

  2. Droog811's rating of the film Seconds

    Loved everything about this, from the odd camera angles and weird, distorted cinematography to the strange and unsettling music. Plays out like an extended and excellent episode of the Twilight Zone but with deeper psychological overtones. Rock Hudson's acting is excellent too.

  3. DenoResandono's rating of the film Seconds

    SECONDS is a quite underrated movie from director John Frankenheimer. This movie looks like came from THE TWILIGHT ZONE series. So I came up with a thought that SECONDS is the best episode that Rod Serling never made. A compliment to Rock Hudson. Because he played against his usual type. His scream in the end is beyond frightening. James Wong Howe's cinematography is f*cking amazing. It's a great movie!

  4. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Seconds

    7.1/10, my review: https://wp.me/p1eXom-3gr "For what it is worth, SECONDS is erring on the side of the cautionary-tale tantalization to mire its protagonist in the venal corporation whereas ostensibly astute alternatives are conveniently on tap elsewhere."

  5. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Seconds

    Mysterious yet intriguing plot it has... what it feels like to start again but with a price to pay in the end... made the same time THE FACE OF ANOTHER was released. I could've expected more, but there were some pretty good moments it has (from the fantastic camerawork to the fine acting, for example). Yet about that ending, I wish I'd knew what happened next.

  7. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Seconds

    Exploring themes of identity & psychology within the framework of a shadowy corporate conspiracy, Frankenheimer creates a still potent masterpiece. Adorning its Twilight Zone-style narrative with experimental, even avant-garde filmmaking technique, Seconds is an indisputable masterwork of cinematic form. A film about alienation & displacement that feels analogous to the greatest work of Resnais, Oshima & Teshigahara.

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Seconds

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. lIZUKA's rating of the film Seconds

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

  20. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Seconds

  21. jenstor's rating of the film Seconds

  22. 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.

  23. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Seconds

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

  24. 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
