Ratings & Reviews

  1. Phooka's rating of the film The Devil

    Harrowing. Incredible atmosphere, prolonged suffering, torture and despair. Not a cheery offering, this is a bleak examination of existence and humanity, set in the snowy wastelands and ruins of Poland. Grim yet strangely compelling all the same. Some brilliant visuals and scenes. The tension and mania is palpable and at times this is hard to watch.

  2. Monasteries's rating of the film The Devil

    A failed-regicide is led through the decay of Polish society by a figure akin to the Marquis de Coustine from Russian Ark. Of course his company embodies the faults & strengths of Poland, carrying implications for contemporary communist occupation. Big on symbolism (which aspects of Poland do the various purpose-built women clumsily represent???), crazy cinematography, amazing score, typically odd acting for the era.

  3. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film The Devil

    Frustrating movie to watch might have to try again.

  4. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Devil

  5. Freude's rating of the film The Devil

    This is madness all over. Madness in the epileptic emotions of the actors, madness in the bleak, expressionist landscape – more than merely surrounding, madness in the feverish camera movements and the story’s restless ramble into fatalism giving you just as little room to breathe as the protagonists themselves have. I like being sucked into mad movies.

  6. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Devil

    Rewatch of a restored DCP. In some ways this is my favorite Zulawski? Allegory aside, it's easily his best-looking film in how it turns the natural landscape into an emotional one: the birch trees, the autumn leaves, the overcast sky, the mud, the brick, the filth, the blood, the ruins, the empty corridors, etc. all become a theater of jealousy, religiosity, madness. The final act is a masterpiece.

  11. rllr's rating of the film The Devil

    "I always wanted to become a dancer."

  12. Henri's rating of the film The Devil

    Étrange impression. Un film confus, décousu, outrancier, extrême, provocateur...mais que l'on n'arrive pas à détester.

  13. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film The Devil

    Quand Zulawski est dans l'excès, on se lasse au bout d'un moment de ces vociférations incessantes, de ces mouvements de caméra tous azimuts, de ces acteurs trop expressifs. Malgré tout, les apparitions de Pszoniak sont toujours justes et prenantes. Définitivement, Zulawski n'aurait jamais réalisé un documentaire sur la paisible vie de placides pandas ;-)

  14. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Devil

  15. Christophe's rating of the film The Devil

    Encore une pantomime de plus, avec des discours religieux d'un autre âge pas vu plus de la moitié de guerre lasse

  16. Victor LVD's rating of the film The Devil

    Un sacré voyage en enfer.

  17. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Devil

    Our Daily Free Stream: Andrzej Zulawski - Diabel. Wieso wurde Diabel, Zulawskis zweiter Film, nicht nur gebannt, sondern sein Regisseur auch noch aus dem Land geworfen? Es muss etwas in dem Werk mitschwingen, dass die polnischen Behörden verängstigte... mehr auf cinegeek.de

    Zulawski dans tous ses excès...

  19. Philippe Machado's rating of the film The Devil

    Film halluciné et fantasmagorique d'une folie politique. Brillant.

  20. Marinos Koutsomichalis's rating of the film The Devil

    Weird, frenzied and infernal in so many different respects.. and add a pinch of psychedelia on top of that.. Even if the movie has some weak and indecesive moments, it's still Zulawski at his best!

  21. Ludovic72's rating of the film The Devil

    Le chaos et la démence règnent, les personnages agissent comme des possédés épileptiques... Nous sommes bien dans une peinture de l'enfer physique et spirituel, où les êtres subissent des tourments qui les dépassent. Dans cette apocalypse terrestre, il devient difficile de résister aux discours du diable tentateur... Deux heures de mysticisme frénétique, un spectacle épuisant mais en accord total avec son sujet.

  22. ADZERTY's rating of the film The Devil

    Complexe, fantastique et tragique, baroque, la fin de toutes les valeurs et leur perversion dans un monde occupé, dominé par le mal.
