Recenzje krytyków

The seeds of Ashby’s soon-to-be trademark countercultural vibe are evident in the restless formal play, ‘groovy’ production design and music, and further augmented by Gordon Willis’ blissfully gauzy cinematography.

I don’t want to tell you much about it. Discover it the way I did: Just see it. It contains all the gentleness, eccentric rhythms, oddball humor, brilliant editing, and deep humanism that mark [Ashby’s]other films, and like his other films, it’s utterly unique.

  • Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Landlord

    Hal Ashby's debut film is very honest, witty and funny. The dramatic twist is poignant, though for me it disembalances the perfect farcical tone it had at first.

  • Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film The Landlord

    If you have taken it upon yourself to treat an unfamiliar world like a school project, like something you can insert yourself in without any consequences, you won’t ever grow. Ashby’s film isn’t about Elgar’s journey to enlightenment. Sometimes, in the film’s more insufferable moments, it feels like that, like it’s a movie that uses race and class relations to teach a privileged white dude a lesson.

  • Mtume Gant's rating of the film The Landlord

    The brilliance that is Lee Grant in this film. Excellent acting all around and what a script by Bill Gunn. This is the kind of upfront talk about Race in America you will never see today

  • Mark's rating of the film The Landlord

    The humor is superb. Watching Pearl Bailey and Lee Grant eat soul food, oxtail nonetheless, still hits the nail on the head every single time. And what film is not beautiful to look at if it is not graced with cinematography by Gordon Willis?

  • SeventiesSinema's rating of the film The Landlord

    Contrary to David Thomson, Ashby is an auteur because who else do the flaws in this film - radical editing choices that sometimes do not pay off; occasional liberal didacticism - belong to? Honestly conflicted about race, the resulting confusions feel true to life. And the acting! Grant so sexily comic she defines the Oedipal Complex. Sands and Bey and their utterly unique voices. Bailey! Willis! The music! Joy!

  • Jim's rating of the film The Landlord

    ★★★★½ / 35mm /Ashby’s brilliant film, an inspired collaboration between the director’s tone, Gordon Willis’s visual poetry and Gunn’s piercing adaptation. A film that eviscerates white liberal intentions while revealing the harsh bitterness of those marginalized. Full of thought provoking scenes and ideas and perfectly pitched performances by Beau Bridges, Lou Gossett, Pearl Bailey, Sands and a hysterical Lee Grant.

  • cineholic's rating of the film The Landlord

    10/10. What starts as a broadly comic farce, quickly develops into a surprisingly poignant romantic drama that tackles class and race. Ashby takes some risks with intercutting several scenes in a manner that borders on experimental, though his stylistic flourishes always serve to benefit the characters and/or advance the conversation about race at the heart of the film. Funny, romantic & moving.

  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Landlord

    Una comedia de tonos hilarantes que apunta a la conciencia sobre la convivencia racial para la década de los 60. Lo valorable en "The landlord" tiene que ver con los detalles en cómo el desencuentro social y racial es desmitificado. El choque no es más que una careta que se diluye mediante los comportamientos de rutina: el baile, el sexo, el trago. Satírica escena sobre un baile de disfraces. Un carnaval histórico.
