  1. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

  2. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    A hilarious and bittersweet ride of a comedy. The story follows a not so successful film director who intends against the studio's will to make a film about poverty. But to do so, he wants to live trough the suffering and trouble of being a tramp. This film perfectly expresses that sometimes, the journey matters so much more than the goal itself. It is also very well written, directed and acted too.

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Un detalle interesante en "Los viajes de Sullivan" es que no espera hasta el final para teorizar la premisa de su trama. Esa concepto áspero sobre la polaridad de la riqueza y la pobreza, además de una autocrítica ante la no asistencia de un cine comprometido, no es más que el punto de partida que irá camino a la reconsideración. Lo que en principio lucía como factible, al final luce como una perspectiva apresurada.

  5. James Mackin's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Probably my favourite Sturges out of all I have seen.

  6. Vincent T's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

  7. Zach Closs's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    The great irony of "Sullivan's Travels" is that it is, in many ways, a very serious film about the importance of comedy. It's an irony I can imagine Sturges embracing and delighting in, on and off-screen.

  8. Michael Peer's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Nearly 70 years later, Sullivan's Travels still holds up as one of the best dramatic comedies ever made. Even the most abhorrent of today's modern audiences will be sucked into its spell. You can see the influences this film has had tonally with Spielberg, Hill, and the Coens. It perfectly captures the contradictory nature of making a movie about things you've never actually felt. A wonderful, marvelous little movie.

    10 stars for veronica lake

  10. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    What this does is something very unexpected and very honest about things such as privilege, and works as a fine moral as well. Sturges has the sense and self awareness to mock himself and others like him who try to make "serious" pictures, as if they truly know a thing about suffering. It ends on an uplifting message of laughter is the best medicine, but it still finishes it's story with a hint of irony in the end.

  12. SpacePirate's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Was there a more underrated actor from this era than Joel McCrea? Maybe Joe Cotten. Love his work, and that of Mr. Sturges. Great film.

  13. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

  14. Muraki's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    an extremely well made movie.

  15. Samuel Donath's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    A sweet tale of human kindness, but a little too short to really dive deep into these human issues.

  16. msmichel's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Essential cinema. Masterful satirical achievement that concerns a filmmaker tired of making 'fluff' who sets to the road as a tramp to discover truth, hunger and pain to better make an 'important' film. The truth he eventually uncovers comes as a surprise to him. Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake were never better in a film full of wonderful performances and memorable moments throughout.

  17. Blumes's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    "Gimme a letter of introduction to Lubitsch."

  18. HSBilly's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    the taste of human kindness

  19. Alexandre Roy's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Well this was as Hollywood as a movie gets. I know it's considered a classic and gets high praise from a lot of people but I just couldn't get into it. It was sentimental, predictable and about as subtle as a tornado. The message was conveyed in a very heavy-handed manner and probably wasn't as profound as the director thought it was. It had some fun moments but I prefer my movies a little less trite and polished.

  21. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    Preston Sturgess knows that every joke has a victim and decidedly makes him go through the hardships of poverty and anonymity for our own amusement. The chemistry between Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake is the heart of this hilarious and life affirming meta-cinematic exercise.

  22. knockkneed's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

  23. Rahul's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    It turns out poor people don't want to watch movies about their poverty-stricken lives. Who would have guessed?

  24. john's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

    hollywood as the sigh of the oppressed creature. sentimentalized class war for the michael harringtons who think they know better. quite funny, however.
