This is one of the most visually alive and beautiful movies I have ever seen; there is a wonderful flow of fresh air, light, vigor, and liberty through every shot.

The movie has never really been about gold but about character, and Bogart fearlessly makes Fred C. Dobbs into a pathetic, frightened, selfish man -- so sick we would be tempted to pity him, if he were not so undeserving of pity.

Huston must have thrown everything he had into this impossibly rich film, packed with grit, passion, adventure and heartbreak.

Transcends the medium to become a mandatory viewing experience for anyone that identifies themselves as a human being, period.

The characters here are probed and thoroughly penetrated, not through psychoanalysis but through a crucible of human conflict, action, gesture and expressive facial tones.

Sierra Madre is one of the most lush black & white films ever shot. You'll never look at a gila monster the same way after seeing it slither across the sand in this film.

An all-time classic; Bogart wonderful, but Walter Huston steals the show; a timeless treasure not to be missed.

Uma fabulosa atuação de Humphrey Bogart (completamente esquecido no Oscar daquele ano, numa das maiores injustiças que a Academia já cometeu).

The film plays as a morality fable, showing that the deadliest dangers to man are in his soul and not from the external dangers.

Humphrey Bogart's maniacal Fred Dobbs is one of moviedom's great characterizations, a conglomeration of cunning, greed and paranoia.

Much of the film's strength comes from director John Huston's pen and attention to detail.
