Great Day in the Morning Yönetmen Jacques Tourneur

Eleştirmen yorumları

All of these players… are given solemn respect and moral nuance by Tourneur, and detailed, fully lived embodiment by the actors. In films like Great Day…, this earnest attention to the movements back and forth between couples, the flux of desires when confronted with a person’s actions or reasons for their actions, is as crucial and riveting to the drama as the genre plots—horror, thriller, law and order, et cetera—that seem the films’ surface propulsion.

  • Gondo's rating of the film Great Day in the Morning

    It's only about gold and war. Greed and power. And in a world like that love is just another word for the male sexual desire, one that you just take but never give. Tourneur filters this male-centered worldview critically through the presence of two intelligent woman. One hates the love she has because it is a one-sided affair and the other one believes in the power of her emotion, to sacrifice herself for it...

  • Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Great Day in the Morning

    Middle of the road Western with some terrible dialogue which kept getting caught in the actor's mouths, especially Virginia Mayo. Robert Stack was one-dimensional, the boy unnecessary, Civil War rivalries were clumsily tethered script motivations, rote low-angle shots of heroic principals posing against the sky to patriotic score. Regrettably, Ruth Roman's decollete was the only dimension to be found.

  • Jim's rating of the film Great Day in the Morning

    ★★½ / 35mm/ An intriguing, if not very successful western that examines the seething thirst for violence within a pre-Civil War Denver. Stack, an off putting southern accent, does best when focused as the masculine anti-hero, ambiguous in his intentions. Tourneur directs well, enhancing the emotional tensions ready to explode, distracting from the wobbly structure of the plot, a mishmash of conflicts and desires.

  • Terry_Moby's rating of the film Great Day in the Morning

    Stack is another ambivalent Tourneur protagonist in a story with a rich colour scheme and an impressive range of themes. As usual with the director the sentiment is turned down - note the low key love scene with Mayo. Special set piece: the doctor's appearance!
