Critic Reviews for The World, the Flesh and the Devil
Great acting from Belafonte, akward social commentery drags it down though.
According to this film racism is a bigger problem than even nuclear warfare.
Belafonte is magic in his loneliness.
Audience Reviews for The World, the Flesh and the Devil
Wonderfully understated and acted. In many ways a more chilling film than more graphic doomsday films.
Its the end of the world again, only this time there's a problem: the only guy alive is a black guy. And then he finds there's a woman alive, and she's white. And that's the underlying tension of this offering from 1959, when such concerns were a big deal. That the film lingers on this concern is its downfall, even when we discover there's a white guy alive too, so now the two guys gotta fight over the woman. Its a classy production, and all the actors are better than simply good. The material drags it all down finally. I say: remake the sucker. Two guys are gonna fight over the last woman anyway (ask Roger Corman). Give 'em some action if yer gonna go apocalyptic and all.
gr8 story reminded me of an episode of TV's 'twilight zone' but we now know that a nuclear holocost wouldn't leave things the way they r here but that aside oh & radiation gr8 performance by Belafonte
