Critic Reviews for Judgment at Nuremberg
Watchable enough on its own terms, but insufferably glib next to something like Shoah.
There are no surprises in the direction, and Abby Mann's screenplay plays the expected tunes, but there's enough conviction on display to reward a patient spectator.
Most powerful for its subtle and shaded characterizations of both victim and victimizer.
Important fictionalized intense courtroom drama, which at times was engrossing.
Abordando o complexo tema com honestidade, inteligência e humanidade, esta obra-prima repleta de atuações inesquecíveis é um atestado da capacidade do Cinema em servir não só como retrato de nossa História, mas como profunda reflexão sobre a mesma.
Audience Reviews for Judgment at Nuremberg
Leaders of the Third Reich are put on trial at Nuremberg with a thoughtful American judge at the helm.
The themes in the film are remarkably varied and explored with an impressive degree of depth. How do we judge a people, a society? Can we separate individuals from the society to which they belong? What is the proper response to travesty? Does following orders exonerate those who carry out crimes? This is a film about deep philosophical matters, and it both poses answers and puts the onus on its audience.
The natural dignity of Spencer Tracy has never been put to better use, and his performance is matched by the soulful Burt Lancaster and the fiery Maximilian Schell.
Overall, usually important films are tedious, but this one is too important to miss.
An always fascinating courtroom drama whose truly indisputable cinematic strength lies on many unforgettable performances from the entire cast and an extremely complex, thought-provoking script that never ceases to question our perceptions about the case and History itself.
Judgement at Nuremberg is a classic film about the Nuremberg trials. Brilliantly acted and directed, the film chronicles one of the most important trials of the 20th century. The Nuremberg Trials were the first trials of its kind, and it brought to justice the men responsible of bringing millions of people to their deaths during the Holocaust. The story of the Nuremberg trials has been recounted many times on film, and I've seen quite a few films on the subject. Judgement at Nuremberg is the finest example of the trial. Stanley Kramer delivers stunning picture that boasts a great cast of actors, and the film has a wonderful script that captures the importance of the trial. Kramer directs a wonderful cast including Maximillian Schell, William Shatner, Spencer Tracy and Burt Lancaster. This is a flawless drama, and a must see for those who love court room drama. The film captivates the viewer by the fact that that this is based on real events and it adds to the experience. I found this film to be one of the better reconstructions of the trials, one that felt more subtle than other films, which for me anyway, felt less over dramatic, which is necessary in order to make a great film. Using great performances and a great story, Stanley Kramer was able to pull off a memorable and engaging drama that still resonates today. If you love classic cinema, Judgement at Nuremberg is a stunning, well acted film that recounts an important part of history. This is the finest portrait of the trials that I have seen, and anyone looking for the definitive portrait of the trials should watch this film. The cast, story, and direction are all top notch, and they make for a truly engaging film experience.
