Moonrise Reviews

December 28, 2018
Moonrise is a film... I should hope spurs this drive toward action, helping the viewer to experience the tremendous indignity of something like the death penalty (or any other abuse under the pretense of justice) by touring them through a tortured life.

...one of the greatest works by one of Hollywood's most unfairly treated masters.

This is an overlooked gem from one of Hollywood's under-the-radar mavericks, and a tasty slice of small-town noir.

Moonrise is a truly great film, strange and sympathetic.

Parte noir, parte melodrama, o filme funciona como estudo de personagens e conto de moralidade, mas se enfraquece sempre que se entrega ao água-com-açúcar entre o conturbado protagonista e a mocinha.

A compromised film noir, due to themes of redemption and a happy ending, the newly restored Moonrise merits attention for it visual and sound elements, particularly stylized b/w cinematography of John Russell, who in 1960 shot Hitchcock's Psycho.

The film's beauty lies in Borzage's overpowering visual mise-en-scene.

Superb, moody Frank Bozage drama.
