Ratings & Reviews

  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Talk Radio

    When verbal diarrhea meets conspiracy theories. It's like a Quentin Tarantino version of 'JFK'. Already forgotten.

  2. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Talk Radio

    Imbued by a sense of urgency and anchored by a tremendous Eric Bogosian performance, Talk Radio constantly pours salt into the American wound, assaulting a way of living, a social and political narrow mindedness, and the inability to generate original thoughts. There’s a poignant vibrancy to Stone’s film, that raw type of energy of a punk band in its early days. It’s relentless, it’s contagious, it’s necessary.

  4. Bob's rating of the film Talk Radio

    Almost 2 hours running time is filled entirely with dialogues, but it's more suspenseful and more exciting than most action/adventure films. Radio show is presented as a battlefield, on one side the great charisma of Eric Bogosian and on the other society's disposals - all united in one of the best screenplays every written. It's a sedative for insomniacs, an exhaust for maniacs and eulogy for enthusiasts. A must see

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Talk Radio

    Fascinant et pessimiste à l'extrême !

  6. SeemsLikeFun's rating of the film Talk Radio

    A lot of annoying Oliver Stone trademarks, but I love an 80s late night talk radio show as a setting.

  7. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Talk Radio

    I could listen to Bogosian talking on the radio all night long.

  8. Z's rating of the film Talk Radio

    Oliver Stone and Eric Bogosian strike sparks in this unremittingly intense exploration of a radio personality/artist pushing himself and his audience to the brink. Bogosian's Champlain uses his show to provoke, argue with and insult the ignorant, bigoted, hatefully sadistic perverts who call in to threaten him nightly. For Stone and the character life is an ideological battleground upon which no prisoners are taken.

  9. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Talk Radio

    Grande lavoro di Stone,che svolge magnificamente il suo rituale lavoro di denuncia del marcio della società Stelle e Strisce.Bellissimi i monologhi e gli scontri verbali,così come è bellissima l'esaltazione dell uomo dopo la morte,giunta dalle stesse bocche che lo dileggiavano in vita.Meno bello il flashback centrale.Crudo,anti-conformista,cattivo,diretto:l'Oliver Stone di un tempo. 4*

  10. M****'s rating of the film Talk Radio

    Something very stiff about this movie. So heavy handed.

  11. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Talk Radio

  12. MarcusArcus's rating of the film Talk Radio

    Unbelivably smart film from Stone.So well written and acted.It is a bit too dull,but hey it plays like a play.Also,predictable,but good ending.

  13. Dave's rating of the film Talk Radio

    The first 20-odd minutes are just so crisp, but things became a bit too monotonous. Bogosian's performance is a powerhouse, and based on it alone this film needs to be seen, but I honestly feel like it could have clocked in at around 75 or 80 minutes rather than 110 and not lost anything.

  14. micah van hove's rating of the film Talk Radio

    One of the greatest performances I've ever seen from Bogosian and some of Bob Richardson's best work as well. A chaotic, claustrophobic work of grace & definition. Striving to expose the evil & stupidity in the world, only to reveal the short-sightedness of an individual who devotes them self entirely to their work.

  15. Michele Andreoli's rating of the film Talk Radio

  16. Brad S.'s rating of the film Talk Radio

    Most of Stone's films provide a rush on first viewing, but dim when revisited. Talk Radio keeps getting better and real life events have actually shown it to be ahead of its time. This is Stone at his best (though certainly Bogosian deserves much credit.)
