    "Broken bones, broken bottles, broken everything..."

  2. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Lusty Men

  3. Matt's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    A entertaining drama despite revolving around a very unsavory "sport".

  5. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    A western for after the death of the west, about a toxic combo of adrenaline highs, money rolling in, and masculine pride. It would make an intriguing double bill with something by Howard Hawks—Only Angels Have Wings, say—because whereas Hawks romanticizes men at work, Nicholas Ray sees bruised pathologies. Beautifully scripted and shot all around, with full use of Robert Mitchum's outsider seen-it-all charisma.

  7. Dalibor's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    Decent piece of insight on rodeo subculture, especially detailing it with semi-documentary riding sequences. Not much of a story, though, but enough is squeezed out of it to keep it going all the way through.

  8. Des Horne's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    "Everything always proceeds from a simple situation where two or three people encounter some elementary and fundamental concepts of life. And the real struggle takes place in only one of them, against the interior demon of violence, or of a more secret sin, which seems linked to man and his solitude." - Rivette

  9. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    A rodeo film by a master of noir and melodrama. In this film, though, Nicholas Ray takes his time a bit and lets us sink into the rodeo life while relationships develop and alliances shift. Robert Mitchum is well cast as laconic, cagey Jeff McCloud. Susan Hayward plays a strong, self-assured Louise Merritt. http://letterboxd.com/mharbour/film/the-lusty-men/

  11. msmichel's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    Ho-hum rodeo drama that truly lacks the excitement of its subject matter. Mitchum basically plays Mitchum (usual) with a muted performance by the usually reliable Susan Hayward. Arthur Kennedy quite good until script's turning point. Cliched melodramatic coda sinks it. Well shot by Lee Garmes.

  14. Dave's rating of the film The Lusty Men

    The finest film about the rodeo that I am aware of. Nicholas Ray helms one of his finest films and Mitchum gives an outstanding performance.
