  1. Dalibor's rating of the film The Sicilian

    Just as "Heaven's Gate" was an argument for more studio involvement during film-production, "The Sicilian" might be an argument for less cocaine consumption during career. Seeming either like an awkward failure or a bad practical joke, it might have fared better had it been conceived as a cartoon.

  2. THE APOLL0's rating of the film The Sicilian

    Director's cut has written Gore Vidal all over it

  3. Ghostman's rating of the film The Sicilian

    The Sicilian is radical. The filmmaking here is clever, meticulous, & dynamic. It's pure cinema. It's not realistic but it paints such a detailed picture of the world& the political machinations of the period that it goes beyond verisimilitude, it becomes timeless in its themes. See something else if you like realism, this is a fever dream; a fantasy from history &romantic myth-making writ large in celluloid.

  4. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film The Sicilian

  5. Ethan's rating of the film The Sicilian

    This isn't Cimino's best work but it's not a bad movie.

  6. Louis Léonard's rating of the film The Sicilian

    Great story, unfortunately overdone with really bad acting and bad directing choices. (2.5 / 5)

  7. Amin Lumière's rating of the film The Sicilian

    "I hate Glenn Miller!Don't you have any Count Bassie?

  8. Howard Orr's rating of the film The Sicilian

    Dialogue so stilted it should be walking around in a circus; Sukowa's weird apparent dub-job; pointlessly pretty cinematography and that annoying swirly, 360 degree camera that try to distract from stiled dialogue. (like the cops talking in the car waving flashlights in each other's faces in "Desperate Hours") ...But Ackland smoulders with suppressed menace, and the film does improve when it later picks up pace.

  9. Dave's rating of the film The Sicilian

    In the second half, the story does begin to turn into the mess that everyone says it is. But throughout the entire film, it has some beautiful cinematography and shows that Cimino always had a great visual sense regardless of how weak of a script he was working with. This definitely an interesting failure, and as with all Cimino films, it is just intriguing enough to keep you watching or bring you back to it.

  10. Reginald Healer Marcellin's rating of the film The Sicilian

    might as well have gotten steven segal to play Guliano
