  1. José Neves's rating of the film The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse

    Rewatched in a splendorous 35 mm copy. If ever there was a Hollywood movie that corresponded to the concept of "Gesamtkunstwerk", this would have to be the one, an opera where Minnelli excels in impressive deliriums. In this visual drama with sound we find an ethereal flexibility of a saturated construction: see the sequence of "les feuilles mortes" at Versailles and how is achieved a summit of brittleness.

  2. Warren Spratley's rating of the film The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse

    Douchet: "a meditation on the dreams that impel men to act." A strange, gargantuan, imperfect Minnelli, a summation of the director's concern w/ the conflict between dream & reality. As always w/ Minnelli, there is a predetermined level of fantasy & reverie. Here though, as in TO BE OR NOT TO BE, Nazism is a formidable antithesis to the artist's system of ideals. The ending prophesies an emergence of absolute doom.

  3. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse

    "A lot of people got it into their heads that the only thing the American moviegoer wanted to do was to stare at Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton and they made movies accordingly." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/01/episode-42-vincente-minnelli-melodramas.html

  4. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse

    An utter mess. Minnelli shows no control and the casting of Glenn Ford is fatal. Ingrid Thulin is grossly mis-used, dubbed (by Angela Lansbury) and the entire enterprise has a very plastic feel to it.
