Feb 2011 - This a very unique movie and it clearly stands out if not as a horror or erotic movie, as it was probably categorized when it was screened, but as an interesting experience with location, architecture, colors and sounds. The movie uses these to its advantage and creates an extraordinary feeling that carries us through the movie and makes it possible to overlook the flaws in the story and its realization. The love making scene in the beginning is also a fascinating example of what I like to call accidental cinema, where it would not have been made if it was not because of the censor. It is very good on its own and I think clearly adds to our emotions during the rest of the movie.
Feb 2011 - I am sure at the time this was view more than anything within the political atmosphere of the time and the unpleasant role that Kazan had played. That wil always remains with this movie but the personal journey taken by Terry is what overshadows that. Brando's acting is a classic and his lines, his character and his final walk are unforgettable. I was not so fond of the cliche portrayal of their love, Eva Mari Saint's acting and the abuse of the background music which I suppose was customary at the time.
