    3.5, but 5 stars for Linda Hunt's performance.

  2. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

  3. janice.hughes's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    A youthful Mel Gibson as a chiselled anti-hero in this film of the darkest moments of the Indonesian "killing fields" stays in the consciousness throughout time.

  4. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Mel Gibson: after Mad Max and Gallipoli only at the age of 26 he did this. His 3rd "real" movie. A careerist, an asshole, a beginner, who really doesn't know much, wants to land the hit. At which price? Any price? Friendship, ethics, moral, betrayel.. what's right, what's wrong. Make up your own judgement. Fantastic Mel Gibson, on a very early stage, with much more substance as before. Unforgettable: the eye scene.

  5. Kyle Knapp's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Thematically messy, and fragmentary editing clouds the story, though it does mostly save it from sluggishness. When the film leaves Billy it loses its center, but it transcends its flaws to be a near-great film, thanks to an outstanding sense of place and Hunt's performance as Billy. Weaver, accent aside, hits the right note of maddening opacity, and it's nice to see Gibson at his pre-crazy, charismatic best.

  6. Genre films > French New Wave's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    A bit unfocused at times, but moves along quite well and has great performances and moments.

  7. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Un bel film di denuncia di Weir,che racconta non solo un paese sull'orlo di una guerra civile ma anche di un mondo occidentale che non vuole o peggio non riesce a capire una realtà al di fuori dei propri modelli sociali e culturali.Scene di piazza molto convincenti,ma con qualche enfasi di troppo e atteggiamenti a volte troppo forzati. Cmq un buon film,con un Gibson ancora lucido e una Weaver bellissima.

  8. Henrique Amud's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Weir and Gibson are on top form, but fuck'em, this is Linda Hunt's film and she absolutely elevates the material.

  12. fiksinoir's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Kok syutingnya nggak di Indonesia ya?

  13. Caro_its's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    All my memories about this movie were gone after all... A strong story, Sigourney & Mel are gorgeous, a must-to-see. And Linda Hunt played a male character (and won the Oscar). Great, great, great...

  14. eric gould's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Peter Weir's lush yet taut political thriller is a densely-layered delight set on the cusp of Indonesia's independence thrust with a military coup d'etat. At its center Mel Gibson as a reporter and Sigourney Weaver as a British military attache assistant enter a courtship led by Billy Kwan, a photographer who help's Gibson's character on report coverage. Linda Hunt plays Billy with charm, staging a Wayang kulit play.

  15. Dzimas's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    Of course most persons remember this movie for Mel and Sig, but Linda Hunt stole the show. She was terrific!

  16. Stu Witmer's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    A compelling story with a spectacular acting turn by Hunt together with strong work from Weir, Weaver, Gibson, Jarre et al. Very subtle and stunning wide-angle work by Russell Boyd.

  17. Weena Eloi's rating of the film The Year of Living Dangerously

    By far, Peter Weir's best film. Okay, this and "The Last Wave"...except this doesn't have Richard Chamberlain in it so that makes it more tolerable.
