  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

    Une oeuvre mineure et d├ęcevante qui ne laisse aucun souvenir particulier... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

    Time--and the overall shitfest of summer movies over the past two decades--have been kind to the legacy of this film. It's not nearly as bad as most people seem to remember it was. And you can always learn something from a Brian DePalma film.

  3. Ryan Swen's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

  4. Renton47's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

    On the list of directors I want to tackle race relations De Palma would surely be somewhere near the bottom. An entirely tone-deaf "comedy" in which race is reduced to a political strategy by all parties (including the money grubbing families of the victimised), which is not to say there aren't similarities between this and 'Made in America'. To paraphrase Thomson, Griffiths is a loving gift to misogyny.

  5. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

  6. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

  7. Francesca Perry Carboni's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

    The film may have been awful, but the book about the making of the film - 'The Devil's Candy' by Julie Salamon is one of the best film reads ever. I wonder how many people read this book before seeing the film and then rushed out and rented it to see that Concord shot - I did!

  8. CafeGradiva's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

  9. Subterranean Cinema's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

    If they had cast William Hurt instead of Tom Hanks, and John Hurt instead of Bruce Willis, this would have been a pretty good film.

  10. Dave's rating of the film The Bonfire of the Vanities

    There is a cool tracking shot...that's about it.
