  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Pour Marlène, le début de la légende et le film qui lui ouvrira, ainsi qu'à Sternberg, son pygmalion, les portes d'Hollywood. Une page essentielle de l'histoire du cinéma... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Nick Potter's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Marlene Dietrich could've been a star if this was the only thing she ever did, but the world is incredibly grateful that this film propelled her to her heights. Emil Jannings is terrific also, but its just hard to look away from Dietrich.

  4. David R Williams's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    I was surprised at how young Dietrich looks in this film then realized she was all of about 21. As Ebert wrote The Blue Angel "is intriguing for its glimpses of backstage life in shabby German postwar vaudeville, and for Dietrich's performance, which seems to float above the action as if she's stepping fastidiously across gutters."

  5. Ren Cook's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    marlene dietrich is incredible to watch and this is a great story about how love can take everything from you

    7.4/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-2Qd

  7. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    3-4. There's kind of a tough call about evaluating this one. In order to accept the bite of this film, we have to place value on Immanuel's status as a professor. But the film seems to draw cruel delight from his humiliation, even though we can't really critique him from existentialist premises because the consequences of that lifestyle are clearly on display. Though evocative, its premises are oddly ambiguous.

  8. Slappy McGee's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    (4.5 stars) A near-perfect film using the influences of German Expressionism to tell its dark tale. Dietrich is wonderful and Jannings is incredible here. Truly magnificent ending as well. Packs a powerful punch and is extremely well-crafted. Top Notch Film!

  9. Myles's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Pretty perfect for it's time. Moralistic parables of obsession and loss only get worse than this.

  10. Aardsy's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Love is often sleazy and sad.

  11. Ethan's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    This is a great movie about obsession and desire, featuring the alluring Marlene Dietrich, in the film that made her a star and a tragic performance from Emil Jannings.

  13. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Rewatched and re-loved. MARLENE, you're the reason why I would rewatch it again.

  14. nessmj's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    German Expressionism, I have found, is not necessarily something easy for me to swallow. This is just a matter of taste. That being said, von Sternberg is working in a world that is suffocating and slow. Prof. Rath, from the get go is a sympathetic character, in dealing with children he detests and attempting to exist within the middle class morality of the Weimar Republic, is he brought to madness by desire.

  15. James Mackin's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Emil Jannings, attempting to punish his students for being interested in sex, becomes interested in sex, which is bad. It's also fun.

  17. Lauren Burrell's rating of the film The Blue Angel

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    Jannings and Dietrich elevate this film to essential status. The slower pacing is the only drawback which keeps me from giving it a full 5. 4.5 stars and essential viewing if you are a fan of the leads

  19. wayne roylance's rating of the film The Blue Angel

    saw this again recently remembering it was very good - surprised at how great it turned out to be. dietrich's star presence is in full flower and she steals the picture from emil jannings (who is excellent himself). one of the great "amour fou" films ever made.
