  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Rewatched for the x-th time. The best Tennessee Williams' adaptation ever. Cymbals and Symbols. Already in my library for decades. Pure Masterpiece.

  2. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    More than anything I’m impressed with how Mankiewicz works around the code. Not the strongest of Tennessee Williams’s adaptations — and he was right to think that Elizabeth Taylor was miscast — but it’s always a joy to see Katharine Hepburn lose her mind and Monty Clift, well, exist. Also, not critiquing this based on the way it understands mental health — it doesn’t — but as a drama.

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    (MILD SPOILER) The film does a really good job of building up a certain expectation of how it will go, and completely shattering it. Katherine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor are both really good too.

  4. Claudia Negrea's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    3.5. poate cam mult TEATRU, dar deh, erau vremurile...

  5. mis marg's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

  6. Superfrog's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Enjoyed the photography, some of the scenes (particularly those involving the pits) but the film is otherwise not that enticing, dragging on too much and with unremarkable performances breaking the rhythm.

  7. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    3.5 stars. The stuttering of my video stream seemed to reflect the film's neurotic energies trying to break through. It is, after all, a film of scintillating evasions. I must admit to not being as convinced by its human dramas as in, say, 'Streetcar Named Desire' or 'Night of the Iguana' because it operates in such a camp, heightened register. How on earth did it get past the censors???

  8. bulletproof isobel's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    looks like sebastian got what he deserved

  9. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Unsettling. It's also interesting how the Spanish kids are conveyed as uncivilised savages by the upper class Southerners. Irony?

  10. ofNatalie LA's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    I would always start watching this as a child, the jungle garden is unforgettable. Katherine Hepburn is just too much. Montgomery Clift's reactions are wonderful and Liz makes me cry at the end.

  11. 'king Harold's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Flipping heck Liz goes for broke in this!

  12. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    A fine, heated, melodrama, based on a Tennessee Williams play, that benefits from a fine cast - Katharine Hepburn, Montgomery Clift, and Elizabeth Taylor at her most drop dead gorgeous - and a good feeling of building unease and strangeness.

  13. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

  14. Zachariah Rigby's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Full of smart Mankiewiczian dialogue and malicious tension. It's a shame the ending is so visually literal though. It could have been Bergmanian. Lovecraftian, even. Instead it's just a bit daft.

  15. Nina's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Anyone who thinks this overacting then you don't realise this is Narcissistic Personality Disorder in the mother. TW's genius writing, Hepburn's acting, the direction is accurate. These people are larger than life; their manipulation of others deadly, literally. It's a living nightmare. Everyone is forced to obey. If you're the focus of their wrath as Taylor portrayals well, they take your sanity and end your life.

  16. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    An intense play captured on film with all its heightened dramatics. Miss Katherine, a victim of madness all around her played with strength and humour by Elizabeth Taylor (we are not worthy). How vulnerable we all are. Especially with doctors performing lobotomy operations without proper lighting...! A masterpiece with masters at work.

  17. Cristian Necsulescu's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

  18. Pango's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Great performances, even if at times is a bit overacted. Some people might find this film demonising homosexuality, but considering the time I'd say it touches really "taboo" subjects in a great way.

  19. Noëlle's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    What a great film and a great cast. David Cameron has changed a lot since his appearance!

  20. Viramati's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Superb film making with an outstanding cast

  21. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

  22. FISCHER's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Etonnant cocktail explosif entre homosexualité et folie qui reste un moment inoubliable de cinéma pur. www.cinefiches.com

  23. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    Such an interesting story with a really unique twist. Elizabeth Taylor is so beautiful. Highly recommend

  24. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film Suddenly, Last Summer

    So disturbing and psychologically raw for a 50s movie, no wonder it caused an uproar at the time. Some great legends here, even though they're kinda overacting . Good stuff.
