... not just one of the great movie titles of classic cinema, it is one of the films that established the distinctive style and attitude of film noir...
Representando um dos primeiros passos do cinema noir, é um filme que, apesar da boa presença de Cregar, mostra-se irregular em seu tom e que tropeça, também, na performance frágil de Mature.
Marvelously sinister performance by Laird Cregar.
Superior thriller from an underrated director.
The signatures of noir are all present here: a dead body, a big gorilla, a grueling cross examination, a too smart love affair, and loads of dark eyed people smoking in dark rooms lit from the lights from behind venetian blinds while knocking back the hooch. American life was not the dream dreamt if you managed to survive the war, yet again. Loved it.
the director seemingly couldn't decide between creepy thriller and light hearted romance so the tone of the film is confusing. i'm not a fan of victor mature, tho he has a great noir face, his acting is too often over the top. betty grable is a lightweight who can't handle drama at all well, and is shown up here by carole landis in one of her few substantial roles. the real reason to see the film is laird cregar whose performance is easily worth 3 stars
This is sort of a confusing mystery, but mysteries that aren't confusing are boring. I loved this movie.
Noir fans will like this one, others... well... maybe not so much. I Wake Up Screaming relies heavily on dialogue. Modern films of similar content are so laden with elaborate chase sequences and choreographed fight scenes that there's little time left for meaningful human conversation. It's sad that the spoken word and the colorful narrative are fast becoming lost art forms.
