Audience Reviews for Ride the Pink Horse

  • Mar 08, 2020
    There's a lot to admire about this film noir. There's a scene where a character is being beaten by some henchmen and the camera captures it in the background as its focused on kids going round-and-round on a Merry-Go-Round. There's the opening tracking shot that left Martin Scorsese wondering how director Robert Montgomery was able to pull it off (mentioned in the Criterion DVD). There's Thomas Gomez's performance that earned him a Supporting Actor nomination, the first for a Hispanic actor. Was disappointed to hear that an Anglo was playing the role of Pila, but as the movie went on Wanda Hendrix's Pila cast a spell. What a wonderful character. She saved the soul of the protagonist and captured mine. Hendrix made that possible with her quietly effective performance. The end of the movie, when she holds court with her peers, is one of the finest "Hollywood" endings ever.

    the actor robert montgomery both directs and stars in this noir set in the new mexican desert. haunting images, mysterious characters, hard-boiled dialogue, yet all is not as cynical as it first seems. a powerful film with delicious atmosphere
