Ratings & Reviews

  1. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film The Cobweb

    The best melodrama I have ever seen about drapes.

  2. Desjarlais's rating of the film The Cobweb

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film The Cobweb

    Film passionnant entre psychanalyse et quotidien, névroses et normalité, qui reste une oeuvre puissante dans la filmographie de l'incontournable Vincente Minnelli...

  4. Terri Wise's rating of the film The Cobweb

    MeloDRAMA. And a bit bizarre. The DRAPES!!

  5. Violet Rien's rating of the film The Cobweb

  6. José Neves's rating of the film The Cobweb

    Cinematography by George J. Folsey. In "poesia" list because of Gish, Bacall, Grahame and Susan Strasberg. And in "desire" on the account of Widmark and John Kerr. How to stage a modern fiction with the rules of the classic system with an enlargement bigger than its nature? Here is the answer: a visual luxury concerning a digression upon the mind and human weaknesses. And in the end, there were no curtains.

  7. Endre's rating of the film The Cobweb

    From the few Minnelli's I've seen, there's a tendency I really like: to start off with stereotypes and clowns, and gradually expose their vulnerable and robust humanity.

  8. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film The Cobweb

    "Bad and the Beautiful explicity makes of filmmaking an artistic, passionaite, soul-crushing labor."

  9. Warren Spratley's rating of the film The Cobweb

    Drapes as existential & psychosexual crises, the illness of normal life, decor/decoration, controlling chaos by letting it resolve itself, different modes of performance, of spectacle, of artistic representation: the juxtaposition between comedy & melodrama has never been more slippery. J. Rancíere is right: Minnelli's lesson is indeed mysterious, everyone's sick, there are mirrors everywhere. I love this filmmaker.

  10. LETTERBOXD.COM/XESCIE's rating of the film The Cobweb

    John Kerr's Steven W. Holte delivers lines just like Natalie Wood's Judy in Rebel Without A Cause but as both films were released in 1955 I wonder which kid inspired which? And the drapes...Twin Peaks' Nadine Hurley would understand.

  11. MarcH's rating of the film The Cobweb

    Plenty of histrionics and orchestra swells over what drapes to put up (think "Picnic," but with interior decorators and asylum patients). Heavy-handed but quite entertaining....would have been better as a Douglas Sirk movie.
