Ratings & Reviews

  1. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film The Song of Songs

    The best parts are prodigious examples of erotism, formal inventiveness and indirect narrativity, but unfortunately, it loses its genius sometimes.

  2. Karthik's rating of the film The Song of Songs

    Deserves to be better known for its expertly fluid direction despite touches of mawkishness (a Mamoulian combination), moments of authentic genius (Dietrich's violent Wordsworthian pang "The things which I have seen I now can see no more") & sensuality. Scenes like Dietrich's introduction to the baronial staff, a masterpiece of expositional condensation, induce in one a similar pang at the demise of classic Hollywood

  3. MarcH's rating of the film The Song of Songs

    It is neither great Mamoulian nor great Dietrich.
