Humphrey Bogart's world-weariness and romanticism take on something brutal and misogynist in this 1950 noir masterpiece directed by Nicholas Ray - and it's a marvellous performance by Gloria Grahame.
Few movies suggest such a forthright flaying of their director's soul.
The grayest, most morally ambiguous of film noirs -- and arguably the most self-reflexive.
It's a breathtaking work, and a key citation in the case for confession as suitable material for art.
Director Nicholas Ray maintains nice suspense. Bogart is excellent. Gloria Grahame, as his romance, also rates kudos.
Never were despair and solitude so romantically alluring.
It's not just the end, but the film's whole last half hour that wrecks you.
You get a full performance from Gloria Grahame, then bonus ones from each of her eyebrows.
A volatile Bogart drops the charm to deliver perhaps his finest performance.
It's a deeply Freudian film that happens to understand Freud--testament to its enduring, unshakable nature.
achieves an absolutely unrelenting grip because Ray plays so expertly on our associations, turning them inside out and against us
I've been returning to this Lonely Place for at least a dozen years, and it hasn't let go of me yet.
Bogie plays a misunderstood artist who's a bit better than the typical Tinseltown hacks, who finally finds his Muse. Only it happens just as he is accused of murder. Can love find a way in a world w/o love? The work is okay, but the love angle is hard on the eyes, hard to believe. Nonetheless the commentary on the emotional stability of the creative persona is spot on and worth the investment.
good but with an extremely dark outlook
Bogart is frightening in Nicholas Ray's masterpiece.
