  3. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film The Beguiled

    I don't think this film is about, "the basic desire of women to castrate men", as the director thought of it, unless you think men are, by nature, incapable of fidelity. It's a wonderfully morally ambiguous psycho-thriller, and makes the most of the themes its setting affords it. A great film, really. A wonderful surprise. The acting is great all-around. I've never seen Mae Mercer before, and she was wonderful.

  4. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Can see why Coppola wanted to work on this. The blossoming sexualities,the enflamed female tugs-of-war, the rooster-man, the fantasious overbite, the spirited camera&overlays;beyond sexually charged - almost raunchy at times(Carol is A FOX);some deliveries are unbelievably humorous. Eastwood throws a turtle yes, but he also,raspy voice,tells a 12 year old she's "old enough to kiss".Iconic. -- Reminds me of 2 films: ▽

  6. Luca Soldati's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Magnifica l'evoluzione della situazione nel collegio. La forza del racconto risiede nell'andare a mostrare la vera personalità delle donne e del soldato. Il ritmo è ottimo e la tensione viene costruita benissimo. Non mancano scene abbastanza disturbanti realizzate benissimo.La regia sa come gestire la narrazione. Interpretazioni veramente ottime. Messa in scena curata e funzionale al racconto. Parte finale magnifica.

  7. Hira's rating of the film The Beguiled

  8. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Beguiled

    This is about sex & suppressed desires. The sexual needs & the lack of satisfaction must lead to uncontrolled actions. Very interestingly it also shows that this is not related to age. Other interesting side aspects are touched: incest & rape. The fact that Siegel & Eastwood do deal with it, is astonishing. I wonder, why they put this in the civil war era and not in a more contemporary one. A very atypical movie.

  9. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Beguiled

    There are two things - why THE BEGUILED is a great movie. First - in this movie, Clint Eastwood played against his usual types. In THE BEGUILED, he's not a cool or tough hero like we used to see in Dollars Trilogy. In THE BEGUILED he played as an injured soldier. He's also a playboy and some kind of loser. Second, director Don Siegel succeed to give a nightmarish presentation in here. A great Southern Gothic genre...

  10. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Great premise ! Hasn't aged great given the 70s filmmaking style that is all over this film in a bad way. Siegel doesn't quite get the horror aspect right I don't believe. Can see why someone would want to update this. Haven't seen the remake but look forward to it. Great score. Clint is fun here slowly and methodically charming about every lil girl in the house regardless of age. Of course he goes for the hot one

  11. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film The Beguiled

    7.3/10, my review:

  12. DSPRKY's rating of the film The Beguiled

    The line readings are very 70s, and the characters so obviously horrid that you have to try to enjoy the film as an off-the-wall psycho-horror experiment if you are to extract any value from it at all. Unfortunately, I don't find Eastwood compelling, and the flashbacks are generally ham-fisted. Not seeing a Gothic masterpiece here, just a relic of 1970s filmmaking.

  13. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Beguiled

    It's remarkable to consider that, in the same year Don Siegel and Clint Eastwood released the Right Wing action classic "Dirty Harry," they also collaborated on this simmering and claustrophobic film that still radiates with erotic menace. Although some may disagree, it's difficult not to read this as a horror movie - trading in those potent horror themes of sexual repression and mistrust between the sexes.

  14. Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Perverse and cynical as excepted, Siegel goes far in this caricature of a fairy tale that becomes slowly a nightmare. Forget the suggestion of classical Hollywood, here it goes straight to the point. This young ladies are not innocent at all, quite the contrary, and this devil of a caporal is not a threat but the one who got captured (like a bird). Siegel dares everything and Eastwood is charismatic as hell..

  15. msmichel's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Don Siegel's adaptation of the Southern Gothic novel by Thomas Cullinan resulted in one of his best pictures. One can practically feel the oppressive heat and the feeling of being caged in more ways than one. Performances are solid especially Geraldine Page who excels here.

  16. James Mackin's rating of the film The Beguiled

    More intriguing and well constructed than the remake, although the remake certainly looked nicer.

  17. bryanvmh's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Probably a better movie than the remake, and despite being older lays into the gore and sexual aspects of the movie more forthrightly.

  18. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Good adaptation of the novel. The black lady gets a major role here. One of Don Siegel's best works.

  19. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Beguiled

    After Eastwood became the Man with No Name and just before he became Dirty Harry, it's fascinating that Don Seigel himself would proceed to castrate and reveal the hypocrisy of the smooth-talking Hollywood star.

  20. moniquekidman's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Despite some decidedly queasy representations of characters, this film is just a lot of fun. Every frame is infused with a repressive heat that is constantly dialed up until the very end. Geraldine Page is compelling as the ideologically and sexually conflicted matriarch figure and I can't really blame the characters for getting all worked up about Clint.

  21. Latias's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Eastwood was soooo young; barely recognized him. The story was quite simple. Really good performance from page. Well I'd like interaction among girls/ladies was less than expected; hopefully to see more in Sofia's version.

  22. Genadijus L.'s rating of the film The Beguiled

    Pathetic, straightforward and almost like a lesson of "sex education in the XIXth century" by Don Siegel. Wishy-washy performance by Clint Eastwood, though Geraldine Page gives pretty strong performance as the owner Martha. Enjoyed the simple and sincere song song during opening and closing credicts.
