  1. Diderot's rating of the film Today We Live

    Gary Cooper, Joan Crawford, and Franchot Tone are three of Hollywood's most beautiful faces, and this war-time melodrama has its charming moments (mostly its close-ups), but the corniness is a difficult sell for a war narrative. (No one forgave it when Michael Bay did it in "Pearl Harbor," so why should this be any different?) It makes me think of Céline, and how heroism and honor make me want to puke.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Today We Live

    S'il fallait retenir une chose de ce film d'Howard Hawks, ce n'est pas tellement l'aspect mélodramatique de l'oeuvre, mais surtout le brio et la maîtrise du metteur en scène dans son étonnante manière de filmer les batailles aériennes. Des images splendides, nerveuses, d'un réalisme saisissant et d'une puissance évocatrice inégalée.

  3. nrh's rating of the film Today We Live

    near masterpiece with unbelievably stylized faulkner dialogue, amazing aviation/boat action scenes, never more beautiful cooper and crawford, and melodrama scenes so intensely underplayed that the underplaying becomes a moral stance in and of itself.

  4. Acerk21's rating of the film Today We Live

    What a train wreck this film was! I can’t believe the great Howard Hawks could churn out such rubbish….and with all that star power…Crawford, Cooper, Tone, and Young? Such a shameful waste of talent!
