Ratings & Reviews

  1. The Tsundokuist's rating of the film The Third Man

    A middling plot elevated to greatness by some magnificiantly seedy post-war Vienna locations, a slightly eerie zither score and a larger than life Orson Welles. Worth watching for the “cuckoo clock” speech alone.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Third Man

    One of the best post-WW2 film noir movies that have ever been made where they even reunite the two best actors from the Mercury Theater, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten. The hunt for the mysterious Harry Lime is gripping from the arrival in Vienna till it all ends in a memorable manhunt down in the city's sewer tunnels. The music hits like a bullet in the back of my bones and Alida Valli is gorgeous. A perfect film.

  3. Vince Wynne's rating of the film The Third Man

    Does 'The Third Man' contain the greatest black-and-white cinematography of all time? Yep.

  4. luclua's rating of the film The Third Man

  5. Roland Nicolai Fanega's rating of the film The Third Man

    Orson Welles is one handsome man. Def an ankle grabber.

  6. Ben Nash's rating of the film The Third Man

    Apart from Scott Barley and Terence Davies, this is the last great British film.

  7. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Third Man

    It's lucky that Selznick was involved, or we might have had Cary Grant instead of Joseph Cotten. Joseph Cotten was underused and under-appreciated. Apparently, Orson Welles was a bit of trouble on the set of this film. He did an excellent job of being enigmatic and sociopathic as Harry Lime. He was rumored to have written all his own dialogue, and directing his scenes. Look for the Dutch angles.

  8. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film The Third Man

  9. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film The Third Man

  10. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Third Man

    A perfect barbed gem of a film. Manages to use hella canted angles without ever feeling "wacky". Welles' Harry Lime perfectly captures what Werner Herzog would later refer to as 'the bliss of evil'. For me Reed's direction (as also in 'The Fallen Idol') counters Greene's dryness and allows one to appreciate the unbearable lightness as well as the moral seriousness of his work.

    the dead are happier dead

  12. Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Third Man

    16mm. Re-watch (for the first time in 10 years almost exactly). This film takes itself so seriously, and at times is so quirky! That score! That cinematography!!! (I just learned about "the Dutch angle" tonight, oops.) Orson steals the show the second the camera hits him. A thoroughly satisfying cinematic experience.

  13. Walker's rating of the film The Third Man

    A classical example of cinematic perfection.

  15. Mtume Gant's rating of the film The Third Man

    A powerhouse of its time, from cinematic technique to Orson Welles stellar performance. 4.5

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film The Third Man

    Un classique du 7e Art qui reste incontournable, inamovible... www.cinefiches.com

  17. Muntagnari's rating of the film The Third Man

    tre. pieno. gonfio. finale da 5.

  18. MistaRichard's rating of the film The Third Man

    Classic noir imagery. If I had to pick a film to exemplify noir-age film grammar, this would probably be it. The performances are memorable, with a special mention to Orson Welles, who, despite appearing for only a few brief moments, is just so much fun to watch on-screen.
