  1. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Street of Shame

    Mizoguchi somehow balances the political with insane emotional power. This is at once realism, a document of five sex workers getting by in an era of immense change, and a crushing melodrama about women in impossible situations. It’s electric and quite the film to go out on!

  2. Gabriele Malagoli's rating of the film Street of Shame

  3. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film Street of Shame

  4. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Street of Shame

    The ending is truly desolate and intense. Everything just stays the same and that's so sad.

  5. Danny Mansfield's rating of the film Street of Shame

    Heart-breaking, tragic, powerful. Mizuguchi's last film is a gut-wrenching masterpiece.

  6. Marvin's rating of the film Street of Shame

    Whoever called this the best film ever may well have been right in his assessment. Terrific score. Mizoguchi at his best. Good commentary by Tony Rayns on the Masters of Cinema BD also. This film enamored me, it made me put myself in the position of almost every character, reaching depth without trying hard. The radio news voiceover reminds me of some Fassbinder movies, such as Lola and The Marriage of Maria Braun.

  9. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Street of Shame

    Mizoguchi’s final film was about a brothel named Dreamland in Tokyo, and while most of his films were related to Geishas and prostitutes, Street of Shame was the standout to me as it focused on multiple characters and gave a brought overview of their lives. Not just the bad, but also the general. If anything it reflects on how society’s rejection was their biggest hardship.

  10. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Street of Shame

    Deeply moving. Absolutely human. It's the last breath of Mizoguchi that condensed his craft into one ultime feature about his dear women.

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film Street of Shame

    Un excellent film social et humain du grand Mizoguchi dont ce fut hélas la dernière oeuvre. Tout en dénonçant avec âpreté et sans aucune concession le problème tragique de la prostitution, le film reste un somptueux hymne à la libération de la femme... www.cinefiches.com

  23. Sonia's rating of the film Street of Shame

    A affecting film by a master of cinematic understatement. Mizoguchi displays a great regard for the daily lives of working women in this curiously liberal film.

  24. jchandleroc's rating of the film Street of Shame

    This is a deeply tragic film. These women suffer not only as the victims of unfortunate circumstances (i.e. poverty, illness, neglect), but as victims of their own unattainable dreams which are callously tossed aside by a cruelly indifferent world. With each glimmer of hope of clinging to some semblance of dignity society deals another blow. With each dissolve they plunge deeper into resignation.
