    The golden age of cinema is well epitomized in this strangely titled yet thoroughly absorbing film. The famous actors, the sets, the fashions, the score and the b&w filming are all surely homogeneous to the era and this film is artfully constructed but it is the time-shift and the tragedy at the heart of this stunning film that suggests why it is now considered a classic of the golden era.

  4. Deiner's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    The story as a whole felt a little sloppy but the actors made the story more engaging than it actually was. I only wish the story focused more on Stanwyck's character.

  5. Ryan Christopher Coleman's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    this Barbara Stanwyck film deals with class in an interesting way, it explores what happens to a person born between two social classes, who is made to conform entirely to one--how she splinters, why she splinters, and it records the aftermath.

  6. Love Walked In's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Top melodramatic noir. Lizabeth Scott's smile, especially the first one, is a killer and will forever be printed in my heart.

  7. film_lies101's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    This just went to the top of my Noir list

  8. eugenie de sade's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    barbara stanwyck is always right tbh

  9. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    I liked the ambivalence of every main character. No single person is without blame. Reminds me of how characters are structured in TV series these days.

  10. Renton47's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Brazenly odd film with an opening that throws down the gauntlet at Dickens, then proceeds with a melange of melodrama and noir. The cast in particular is unlikely, and I'm left unsure how to feel about Heflin and Scott. Once again it seems there are no second acts in American lives, and industry in particular is built on the cunning of audacious individuals.

  11. Riccardo Molteni's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Beautiful noir drama. The rhythm of the narration is what I like the most.

  12. Dogville59's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    I love film noire and this is a good one. Kirk Douglas is so young in this one too. Melodramatic but dark too.

  13. lostlevel's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Quite enjoyable though perhaps a bit melodramatic but I think that's okay.

  14. esen özen's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Özellikle karakter analizleriyle çok başarılı bir yapım. Her detay yerli yerinde, olaylar ve kişiler arasındaki ayrışma ve kesişme noktaları çok gerçekçi ve inandırıcı. Adaleti kendi mülkü haline getiren kapitalizme de sağlam bir eleştiri aynı zamanda.

  15. Korhan Kalabalık's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Filmin sonunda gördüğümüz Iverstown tabelası o denli fazla şeyi anlatıyor ki. Film boyunca gördüğümüz sınıf çelişkilerinin temeline inmemizi kolaylaştırıyor. Hollywood'tan çıkan en iyi kapitalizm eleştirilerinden birini bize sunuyor. Büyük şehirler, genişleyen ekonomiler, devasa fabrikalar ve bunların altında ezilen insanlar.

  16. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Great Stanwyck/Douglas vehicle. 4.5 stars

  17. Esra Yılmaz's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    barbara stenwyck is unresistable as always a good film noir

  18. Bekir Tonga's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

  19. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    It sucked being a woman back then. "Go ahead and beat me, Sam. I deserve it". Men cannot express their emotions with words, so they use their fists. A man gets beat up, but shakes it off. It sucked being a man back then. If you weren't a bully then you were a coward. A man grabs what he wants, and the woman complies. It sucked being a woman back then. Of course some people still define themselves that way.

  20. msmichel's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Stanwyck is at her most despicable in this well told film noir that finds her a rich factory owner married to the local D.A. when the one other man who may know how she got her fortune returns to town. Van Heflin and Stanwyck are reason enough to watch but you also get Kirk Douglas in his film debut in the kind of role he would never be known for...a patsy.

  21. V Daniel López's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Muy buen drama negro. Grandes actuaciones y excelente película para la época.

  22. Lucii Lugo's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Un filme hollywoodense como tantos otros y casi como ninguno. Esta historia está contada precisamente del modo en que deberían estarlo todos los demás filmes de Hollywood de la época. Una historia llena de intriga, romance y belleza. Narrada de forma fluida y sutil, la historia de Martha Ivers con todo y el pasado se va desenvolviendo frente a nosotros como un misterio por resolver. Muy buenas actuaciones.

  24. rociof's rating of the film The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

    Melodrama con personajes de mujeres fuertes, que sin embargo, sirven de comodín a un pretexto de sustancia.
