  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Wild River

    Pour régulariser les eaux impétueuses d'un fleuve, l'Etat demande aux riverains de quitter les zones inondables et dangereuses. Seule, une vieille femme refuse de s'en aller de son île. Un film évident et solide... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Aardsy's rating of the film Wild River

    He fixed racism, flooding AND love.

  4. Howard Orr's rating of the film Wild River

    Rivers, the flooding of the landscape by man, decent people having to perform shitty tasks for a Greater Good, the passing of the old order...all richly emotive and laden with allegorical weight, but the real river of "Wild River" is Clift himself, who seems disoriented by the breaking dam and whitewater rapids of his own inner and private turmoil.

  5. Alexandre Roy's rating of the film Wild River

    Elia Kazan might be one of my favorite directors. Panic in the Streets, East of Eden, On the Waterfront, Boomerang... and now Wild River. All great movies, with East of Eden making my personal top 10. Wild River is another masterpiece. Simple story, subdued direction and touching performances from everyone involved. The image of the house burning down will forever remain in my brain.

  6. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Wild River

    Beautifully shot on location, small but interesting story. I found Clift's performance rather disturbing. Did he know what he was doing?

  7. William's rating of the film Wild River

    Beautifully shot (by Ellsworth Fredricks), with a wonderful sense of place (Tennessee) and history (New Deal-era 1930s). Occasionally a little stiff (a trait I associate with Kazan in general) but Montgomery Clift is fascinating as always and Lee Remick has some scenes that provide out-of-body experiences. The future Mrs. Kazan, Barbara "Wanda" Loden, also appears briefly.

  8. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Wild River

    "I love you. And you are not easy to love".

  9. Erich's rating of the film Wild River

    Wild River. Just saw this at the Film Forum. Amazing. Timely.

  10. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Wild River

    Las escenas entre Montgomery Clift y Lee Remick sorprenden por su cantidad de matices y sentimientos contradictorios. Visualmente debe ser una de las películas más hermosas de la filmografía de Kazan.

  11. Dave's rating of the film Wild River

    A very solid Kazan film with a usually excellent performance from Montgomery Clift. It's a strange film to me, due largely to subject matter. I was just happy to finally get a chance to see this one, as until recently it was incredibly hard to get a copy.

  12. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Wild River

    Inexplicably dismissed by critics & audiences in 1960, this is one of Kazan's best. The acting by Clift, Remick and especially van Fleet is stupendous

  13. Ambler's rating of the film Wild River

    Wonderful film, far ahead of its time.

  14. chanandre's rating of the film Wild River

    [Cinémathèque PT #39: 35 mm] Remick's amazing blue eyes vs Clift's even more insane-looking darker & sadder ones. The film is that too. Those two could surely act. The story is so sad. So moving. So tragic. Don't think that there is a character in this film that's not totally damaged - as Blonde Redhead sing about in "For the Damaged". We're all crying inside. One can really die when forced to move out of HOME too ;(

  15. AJ LeVine's rating of the film Wild River

    I also saw this at the film forum, blown away... amazing performances, fantastic film.

  16. Gorgeous Monty's rating of the film Wild River

    Watched the pristine 35mm print at Film Forum; will be going to see it again this week on the big screen. One of my all time favorite films...and one of my very favorite Kazan films. Remick and Clift are extraordinary together....and Jo Van Fleet should have been nominated for this film!
