Cat On a Hot Tin Roof

5 years, 1 month ago at Mar 10 7:08
Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman give a tremendous amount of emotional heft, sexual heat and acting pyrotechnics to Tennessee Williams’ play about family strife, emotional turmoil and possible homosexuality. It doesn’t quite open up the play and allow for the film to show as deep psychological insight as A Streetcar Named Desire, still the best stage-to-screen adaptation, but it does a great j... read more

Cat on a hot tin roof is a brilliant movie, based on the Tennessee Williams play. It is the story of Maggie adn Brick Pollitt, who are a married couple living a lie. Elizabeth Taylor as Maggie is one of her best performances, she plays Maggie so well and Paul Newman as the alcoholic husband, who can't stop thinking about his glory days a football player. The two leads are brilliant and feed off ea... read more

Since I’m a huge fan of Paul Newman, I was really eager to check this flick. I remember when I saw ‘A Streetcar named Desire’, I was quite blown away, and this movie is also a very successful adaptation of a play written by Tennessee Williams, even though, apparently, it wasn’t really faithful which was a disappointment for Paul Newman and Williams really disliked it (the biggest change th... read more

“Since I’m a huge fan of Paul Newman, I was really eager to check this flick. I remember when I saw ‘A Streetcar named Desire’, I was quite blown away, and this movie is also a very successful adaptation of a play written by Tennessee Williams, even though, apparently, it wasn’t really faithful which was a disappointment for Paul Newman and Williams really disliked it (the biggest change their made was to remove all trace of homosexuality). Personally, I thought it was pretty good but I wasn’t completely convinced by the whole thing. I mean, I was really impressed by Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor who were both at the top of their game at the time (the fact that they were some of the most beautiful human-beings that ever lived was also quite fascinating). The first issue is that” read more

Elizabeth Taylor as Maggie is one of her best performances, she plays Maggie so well and Paul Newman as the alcoholic husband, who can't stop thinking about his glory days a football player. The two leads are brilliant and feed off each other so well, I don't think there can ever be a good pairing like Elizbeth and Paul. The whole movie is a good drama film, with some very good acting helped along by a good story.” read more

"Back during my college days, I took a film critique class for a general class credit that I needed. At one point during the course, we had to watch a series of movies, each depicting different versions of "Taming Of The Shrew". And let me tell you, that was a long week for me. After that, our class was assigned to watch Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. Since this was yet another film that was based on yet another classic stage play, I was prepared for yet another torturous viewing of over-dramatic "thesp"

"4.1. Vuoden ensimmäinen mestariteos. Niin mielettömän mielenkiintoista ja intensiivistä perhekriisidraamaa alusta loppuun, etten ehtinyt kuvitellakaan suuntaavani ajatuksiani muualle. Elämässä epäonnistumisen, tunnekylmyyden ja äärimmäisen opportunitismin synkkiä teemoja sivutaan hyvinkin kattavasti, eikä porvarisperhettä vuoroin repivästä ja vuoroin yhdistävästä kriisistä poiketa hetkeksikään sivuraiteille. Taylor loistaa tapahtumien keskiössä, tavallaan perheriidoista "
