  1. msmichel's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    One of the best known sci-fi films of the 50's is a pretty clunky affair with poor narration and near unlikable lead. However it does boast some impressive (for the time period) effects and a near philosophical ending that impresses.

  2. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Encore un film à ne rater sous aucun prétexte. Des trucages fameux, un suspense constant et une incontestable originalité dus essentiellement au talent de Richard Matheson -relire l'excellent : "Je suis une légende", bien meilleur que ses adaptations cinématographiques- et au metteur en scène Jack Arnold qui reste un spécialiste du genre avec, dans sa filmo, quelques fleurons inoubliables du genre. www.cinefiches.com

  4. Antoine Vivet's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    L'homme qui rétrécit, très bon film fantastique avec des effets spéciaux très simple mais efficace.

  5. Tibulle85's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Effets spéciaux incroyables (encore aujourd'hui!) + une fin ultra-mémorable, aux accents métaphysiques = un autre film incroyable de Jack Arnold!

  6. Aaken's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    A metaphysical science fiction B-movie by a masterful Jack Arnold. Certainly one of the best films of the genre and the 50's era.

  7. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

  8. Steve G.'s rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Splendid and different take on the 1950s monster movie. This time the monsters are normal sized - it's just the victim that got smaller! Surprisingly emotional at times and with a really thoughtful ending, The Incredible Shrinking Man might be lumbered with a hilariously daft and over-earnest voiceover but it's still a superb film.

  9. http://letterboxd.com/James_'s rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    struck by a glitterbomb from fate, our hero progresses from sexually-frustrated malcontent to confessional artist to extreme survivalist and finally to a kind of pure being in the film's astonishing closing moments—all this existential argumentation predicated on the simple contrivance of a man shrinking in physical size.

  10. tom.house's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    The best film about death ever made.

  11. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Hasta cuatro tipos de discursos temáticos/genéricos se perciben en este filme. En primer lugar esta el relato sci-fi sobre un hombre aquejado por un extraño mal y la ciencia que en vano indaga. Seguido se convierte en el drama psicológico del hombre frustrado que recurre a la terapia (diario/novela). Después, un relato de aventuras. Finalmente, el cierre filosófico metafísico, lo que sería una respuesta a la ciencia

  12. Murat Erdem's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Keyifli, kült bir eğlencelik.

  13. c5000's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    So many ingenious effects and so much potential in the plot wasted in such an empty story.

  14. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Philosophical, entertaining sci-fi! Horrifyingly effective movie that plays nothing for shock value but takes things very seriously as Scott grows smaller and more persevering in his survival.

  15. Cbarky99's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

  16. Polyglot's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    All that trouble for a piece of cheese.

  17. Vaxdockan's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Jag har sett denna film 3 gånger men det var inte förrens den senaste som jag började uppskatta filmen lite extra mycket. En mycket trivsam film med mycket tjusiga effekter du bör ha sett någon gång under ditt liv.

  18. Scotch's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Man on a boat drives through a cloud & his hairy chest is covered in glitter. Man shrinks & loses his masculine authority. Man regains it by finding his "primitive" side in the savage wilderness of his basement. What better way to represent the masculine American fantasy of the wild and rugged individualist that so lovingly embraces a problematic notion of the Primitive? And with fabulous glitter!

  19. João Eça's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    one of the best and original science fiction films ever made? for god's sake: it's an existential b-movie made with class and fantastic special effects: what more do you want?

  20. Natalia Buier's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    worth dissecting (and there is definitely a lot to be said about the depiction of marriage, the excellent and hilarious closing lines etc etc) but overall a very unimaginative script

  21. Superfly's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    involution = evolution. masterpiece.

  22. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Incredible Shrinking Man

    so I finally got to see it again, after so many years when I was just a little kid, the power of this fantastic movie is even stronger than what I remember. Suspenseful and imaginative sci-fi classic, with Richard Matheson's thoughtful prose, and remarkable special effects. Imagine your own house as an immense fortress full of deadly traps and gigantic monsters around the corner. Fascinating stuff.
