Critic Reviews for Shoes

  • Weber-who, like Griffith, knew how to pull viewers deep inside a character's emotional vortex-reveals how the chronic envy of these young shopworkers, selling merchandise they can't afford themselves, sucks them into a rapacious economy.

  • Mary MacLaren's performance is incredible, her striking features look like something out of a Victorian painting, and Weber uses her look of broken innocence to her advantage.

    Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A wealth of details fill every frame while remarkable effects, especially for 1916, enhance the story.
