    first half is amazing, sorry the ending is rushed. very nice movie

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    Sur un scénario habilement construit, une réflexion sur les failles du système démocratique américain. Certainement un des meilleurs films de John Frankenheimer... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    To be in NYC on November 9th was to see an entire city in shock. It was in this atmosphere of anxiety that I darted into Film Forum for this paranoid chiller about a right-wing coup that Frankenheimer offered up as a second act to The Manchurian Candidate. If the ending were as good as act one, it'd be a masterpiece. I don't know how bad the Trump era will be, but if we make it out, it'll inspire some potent cinema.

  4. JCPJD's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    What a film! This is some fine plotting. the nuts and bolts fit together entirely and there isn't one dull or loose moment. The characters and their motivations make sense all the way trough. There is a terrifying degree of believability in the way the drama unfolds and this film should be watched by everyone concerned with our current political culture. The acting is superb. Ava Gardner in a small part was electric.

  5. Aardsy's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    The highlight is Rod Serling's preachy, purple speeches.

  6. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    John Frankenheimer in his prime. It does not rank with "Manchurian Candidate" but it is still exceptional. He gets solid performances from Fredric March, Ava Gardner, Andrew Duggan and Kirk Douglas. At this point in his career, excepting "The Leopard," Lancaster hadn't reached the level of majestic transparency he later achieved. Here, he plays the heavy heavily.

  7. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    It gets a little preachy toward the end, but this is a pretty top-notch political thriller with Burt Lancaster at his slimiest.

  8. Michael Stephenson's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    Brilliant script and performances. The scene between Burt Lancaster and Fredric March towards the end of the film is nothing short of electrifying.

  9. Grasshopper's rating of the film Seven Days in May

    Nice cold-war era diversion. What jumped out at me was the script (Rod Serling).
