  1. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film The Chase

    Although it's Old Hollywood all the way I'd say Penn's film aged pretty well. It's easy to say it touched upon some difficult subjects at the time, but now you watch it mostly as a pretty good portrait of smalltown life in the south. I agree that Redford was somehow miscast here, cause he just doesn't cut it. Fonda was great though with Brando being an obvious king of the show.

  4. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Chase

    Bel drammone di Penn che pur apparendo un pò datato in alcune sequenze riesce ancora a stupire sulla pochezza e la burinaggine di un'America ancora attualissima. Interessante lo scontro generazionale nel Paese,così come la contrapposizione tra l'epica fuga di Redford e lo squallore cittadino in cui solo lo sceriffo si erge a persona degna di tale nome. Bel film.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film The Chase

    Un étonnant chef-d'oeuvre américain d'une violence désespérée qui dénonce avec virulence la bêtise et l'intolérance collectives, confirmant la prépondérance cinématographique d'Arthur Penn, d'une rare efficacité... www.cinefiches.com

  6. thebpicture's rating of the film The Chase

    Added to one of the best small tall town mobthink dramas ever made, probably beats The Long Hot Summer. How this movie had a poor reception is beyond me.

  7. nessmj's rating of the film The Chase

    4.5 slow erosion at the facade of small town life executed with a gradual inspection of the interpersonal interactions and characteristics of specific players. a key function of this eventual searing indictment culminating in mob mentality is predicated on somewhat of an epigraph simply stating to leave white people problems to white people.

  8. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film The Chase

    Oh, what might have been with less studio meddling and better editing... Despite its unevenness, the second half contains some exceptionally powerful filmmaking: the portrayal of small town idiocy is terrifying, Brando revels in his role as the less-than-stoical man alone and the entire conclusion has the pessimism and scale of classical tragedy. There was a great film lurking somewhere inside here.

  9. Superfrog's rating of the film The Chase

    It does what it wants to, but I really failed to give a monkey at any point. Won't recommend.

  10. moniquekidman's rating of the film The Chase

    The film meanders for most of the runtime, until the simmering race and class tensions (literally) explode in the final act. The cast is mostly great and I'm particularly pleased by Miriam Hopkins' wonderful performance as Bubber's distraught mother.

  11. ioanabogdana's rating of the film The Chase

  12. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Chase

    A fine drama that uses the catalyst of an escaped criminal (Robert Redford) to pick at the scabs running through a small town, be they infidelities, suspected corruptions, nepotism, and more. The excellent cast includes Marlon Brando, E. G. Marshall, James Fox, Janice Rule, and Robert Duvall.

  13. Ark V's rating of the film The Chase

    A few strong performances in a film that raises some big questions but answers few of them

  14. Paul Relf's rating of the film The Chase

    Incredible film. High tension, outrage and shock. Brando is excellent.

  15. 'king Harold's rating of the film The Chase

    Bloody hell, great film. Love Angie Dickinson. Hilarious party scenes with choreographed drunks. S Town sounds a bit like this place. Redford is off-putting but he does his best poor chap. Marlon is flipping amazing.

  16. Trickstian Shantih's rating of the film The Chase

  17. lbunuel's rating of the film The Chase

    It screams artistic ambition in every shot. It reaches nothing.

  18. Diderot's rating of the film The Chase

    This movie should have just went with it and gone completely over-the-top. I really like the idea of a whole town that's this much of a mess. Brando is great, and so is Miriam Hopkins in her minor role as Redford's mother.

  19. petit astronaute's rating of the film The Chase

  20. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film The Chase

    This would make a great double feature with "In the Heat of the Night. So underrated- sure it has too many characters but Brando is terrific.

  21. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Chase

  22. José Neves's rating of the film The Chase

    "Desire" list. Redford, Brando and the still admirable Fonda. But with those steeds, moreover amazing actors, what to do? To let Penn's wonderful narrator abilities wrap us in so much instability, which he does perfectly, with a great help from Brando and Redford, the magnificent steeds.

  23. Ilya Miller's rating of the film The Chase

    Surprisingly it's not about JFK assassination, it's about Ukrainian revolt, and even Molotov cocktails are intact.

  24. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film The Chase

    One of those legendary failures that features a lot of good things...Brando's performance is dynamite and a lot of the supporting cast is too (Fonda, Duvall, Janice Rule, EG Marshall). It's marred by it's slow pace and the woefully miscast Robert Robert (as Bubba?...a role better suited for the likes of Steve McQueen)
