  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Breaking Point

    Garfield is great in these tough-luck stories. It's just not as good as 'To Have and To Have Not'. It's simply impossible to beat Bogie and Bacall. That is a classic that will live on for eternity. This is too melodramatic, and I saw little to no reason for Patricia Neal's character. The cinematography was magnificent.

  3. Justin Senkbile's rating of the film The Breaking Point

    A lesser Garfield performance, but a better movie than TO HAVE & HAVE NOT. The women in this are incredible

  5. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Breaking Point

    The Patricia Neal/Phyllis Thaxter duel in the bar is a great moment of cinema. A masterpiece to rediscover.

  6. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Breaking Point

    A very good 'classic' movie. Tough story (Hemingway plus new, convincing domestic scenes) and fluent storytelling. Hats off to Curtiz and his totally non-discriminatory direction of the black characters! That last shot: Wow!

  7. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Breaking Point

    John Garfield plays Harry Morgan, a man who's just trying to do right, or at least the best he can, to take care of his family. It's a struggle. And things don't go well, despite his best efforts and good intentions. The way his marriage and relationship with his wife (Phyllis Thaxter) are portrayed and the struggle to keep a tenuous finger-hold on aspirations to a secure http://letterboxd.com/mharbour/films/diary/

  8. MarcH's rating of the film The Breaking Point

    A very grown up version of TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT. Less predictable and glam than Bogart's film, with a final fade-out that will pretty much ruin your night.
