  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

    Une oeuvre nécessaire sur le thème de la démystification de l'héroïsme... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

  3. André Graça's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

    Man this movie is worth watching just because there's a midget that gives a headbut in the lower back of some dude and then jumps on his back and the sounds he makes are like a chicken being strangled. No but seriously the overall quality is shit but if it was nicer this movie would be 5 stars. The last 20 minutes are killer though because the camera is more focused on peoples' faces

  6. Knut Morte's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

  7. albertofarina's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

    Un album di meravigliose fotografie, una storia splendida devastata da un trattamento deliberatamente intellettualistico. Colmo una grave lacuna ma esco dalla sala soffocando qualche vaffanculo a chi ha detto ai cineasti che il cinema era una forma d'arte. Che lo sia è indubbio, ma si starebbe stati tanto meglio senza spargere tanto la voce.

  8. HEDONIST's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

    Despite the poor quality of the VHS transfer that I was able to get my hands on, I must say the quality of the cinematography was quite impressive -- something of a masterclass in composition, truly. The writing was impeccable, an inspirational work, without a doubt. The lighting was at times, trying, perhaps experimental to be kind, perhaps the result of a TV budget, yet, didn't take away from overall quality.

  9. Christopher's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

    This is a beautiful color film a fascism and resistance, heroism, memory and revisionism. It's based on a story by Borges, brilliantly translated by Bertolucci as his first color feature.

  10. Dave's rating of the film The Spider's Stratagem

    Plows some of the same ground as later in the The Conformist, but feels like a warmup for that classic.
