Audience Reviews for The Moon and Sixpence

  • Sep 18, 2012
    Interesting take on the artistic life taken to an ultimate extreme as a family man chucks everything (including his family) simply in order to paint. Loosely modeled on the life of Paul Gauguin, its central focus seems to imply that: if Western life is a life of conventionality, a life in a gilded cage, then Woman is the bait to that trap and should be dealt with accordingly. And so George Sanders (as the lead) spends a lot of screen time drinking in bars and outlining the dangers. Regardless the curious philosophy perhaps Sanders best movie ever.

    i have a certain fondness for this film; i like maugham and i love sanders. this was one of his few lead roles and of course he was perfect playing an absolute bastard, who claims, among other outrageous things, that it's an absurd delusion that women have souls. said to be inspired by the life of paul gauguin and a labor of love for director albert lewin who made only 6 films, of which this was the first.
