Critic Reviews for Bigger Than Life
Mason's gift for cold-eyed madness is heightened by Ray's exuberantly lurid approach.
James Mason has picked a powerful subject for his first 20th-Fox production and delivers it with quite a bit of dramatic distinction in carrying out the supervisory duties and as the male lead.
It's hard to think of another Hollywood picture with more to say about the sheer awfulness of 'normal' American family life during the 50s.
Those who remember the creeping terror and eeriness of Mr. Roueché's real-life yarn will be sorry to learn that there is little terror or eeriness in the film.
Audience Reviews for Bigger Than Life
I liked it. Actually, I really, really liked it. Give me more. Damn it, I need MORE!
wow. james mason is seriously frightening as he slowly loses his grip on reality due to prescription drug addiction. a great look under the idyllic facade of the 50's
this film made me get n the edge of my seat.
