Critic Reviews for Ana-ta-han (Anatahan)
Sternberg slashes the screen with Expressionist tangles of foliage and menacing shadows of rough-hewn latticework.
Josef von Sternberg's 1953 tale of shipwrecked Japanese soldiers is one of desperation, base desire and the instability of moral codes.
... the most stylized of Sternberg's films, a languid portrait of lust, power, anger, violence, regret, and loneliness shot at an emotional remove, staged at arm's length and observed with a dispassionate eye.
Anatahan is as completely regimented and rigorous as any movie ever made, with just about every aspect of it under Sternberg's control. And yet it's a movie about losing control, about yielding to animal instincts.
