  1. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Three ideas come to mind: two strangers communicating through body language and hand gestures, circumventing social and linguistic boundaries (the great ideal of the universal cinematic language); those same individuals swept up or engulfed by the crowd, standing against the tide; the battalion advancing through the forest with fear in their eyes, walking over fallen comrades, marching deeper and deeper into warfare.

  2. Chris DeFalco's rating of the film The Big Parade

    The climactic battle is unparalleled.

  3. aiyang_z's rating of the film The Big Parade

    A beautiful example of Vidor’s extraordinary sense of immediacy and naturalness.

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film The Big Parade

    An emotional blockbuster.

  5. Tornasol's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Dúos en bellísimas fiestas de gestos y expresiones, como en un juego, una comedia de la expresión. Sensualidad amorosa de la primera parte. Luego el espacio cinematográfico es una cuestión de distancias, planos horizontales y generales que fabrican una geografía de la guerra, una experiencia de ella, alejada y vivida por una gran multitud.

  6. Ethan's rating of the film The Big Parade

    This is a beautiful epic that is a little corny at times but one thing that can't be disputed is King Vidor's incredible directing talent. Pre-dating All Quiet on the Western Front, the battle sequences are impressive and exhilarating and the emotions of this film are very powerful. Renee Adoree is an absolute delight here as well.

  7. Ghostman's rating of the film The Big Parade

    The Big Parade is an archetypal war film; it shaped the entire genre and if it's cliched then that's because it started those cliches. Its influence includes everything from Best Years of Our Lives to The Deer Hunter. Although the ending must be nothing but a comforting illusion to all who must have experienced great loss in war, the finale is well earned for the audience. Sometimes the people need a hopeful message.

  8. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Perhaps the first notable WWI Hollywood film. Has much of that King Vidor charm, part romantic comedy and then explores the horrors of war. Yet, it is still too Hollywood for me.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Un jeune Américain va s'engager en France, pendant la Première Guerre Mondiale, connaître le grand amour de sa vie et se trouver gravement blessé lors d'une attaque de tranchées ..... INOUBLIABLE .....

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Big Parade

    Una escena memorable en "El gran desfile". Los soldados se acercan en busca de trincheras y caminan por debajo de árboles que parecen remecer y cobijar al enemigo. Una escena en donde el suspenso empunta. Vidor es un maestro del cine comercial; evoca el romance, (melo)drama, la acción, compone un montaje impresionante que sabe distinto al montaje digitalizado.

  11. Dignan's rating of the film The Big Parade

    One of the first films to not glorify war.

  12. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Big Parade

    One of Gilberts best. The recent blu ray has an unreal transfer. Looks like the film was shot yesterday. One of the best transfers of one of the best silent films. I would recommend purchasing it for your home library

  13. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film The Big Parade

  14. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The Big Parade

    I can't stand American military films and manic depressive atmosphere no longer. Two scenes are great (boot and German soldier). Rest is stereotype which is still in use. additionally, mustacheless John Gilbert looks like Boardwalk Empire's Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza).

  15. João Eça's rating of the film The Big Parade

    A brilliant masterpiece, this is one of the greatest war movies of all time, that proved its director to be a strong heir to Griffith's editing innovations. Vidor's themes are also very similar to Griffith's: basically, the Americana, or, in other words, a constant portrayal of the american society, history, politics and way of life. King Vidor, Griffith and John Ford are the definite american classic film-makers.

  16. Adam Suraf's rating of the film The Big Parade

    The second half of this King Vidor MGM spectacular features arguably the most realistic WWI battles scenes of all time, leaving the first half, which is quite playful and romantic, a distant memory. The quick, moving finale, with John Gilbert and Renee Adoree, is that much more hard earned for the brutal action scenes prior.

  17. oldfilmsflicker's rating of the film The Big Parade

    the war scenes in this film were just astonishingly poetic.
