I pretty much ignored this film when it was first released. I watched on it's first airing on TV, & I literally couldn't believe at how good it was. So I went out & rented it, & yep, I was right. It's that good.
The story is just perfect from beginning to end. And Kathy Bates, IMO, turns in an even better performance than she did in Misery. The plot may tend to come off as a bit complicated... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and a re-watch might change my opinion about the whole thing. On top of that, I have never been a huge fan of Stephen King’s book adaptations but, at least, the ones with a realistic angle were always better in my opinion (with the notable exception of ‘The Shining’). Anyway, I have to admit it, it was actually a decent thriller ... read more

Description: A daughter who has come to imagine the worst about her mother learns the facts are quite different -- and more shocking than she ever imagined -- in this adaptation of Stephen King's best-selling novel. Dolores Claiborne (Kathy Bates) has spent nearly a quarter of a century looking after a mean-spirited woman named Vera Donovan (Judy Parfitt) on a small island off the coast of Maine; when Vera is found dead after falling down a flight of stairs, Dolores is considered a prime suspect in her murder. Word of the affair reaches New York-based journalist Selena St. George (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Dolores's estranged daughter. Though s ... (more)

Anyway, I have to admit it, it was actually a decent thriller but I couldn’t help thinking that the whole thing was pretty much a gimmick. Indeed, 5 years before, Kathy Bathes already played a major role in a Stephen King story, in ‘Misery’, and she pretty much gave a career defining performance (and, indeed, ‘Misery’ is pretty much rock solid as a feature). So, this time again, they took the same formula (thriller+Stephen King+Kathy Bates) and hop” read more

100 Essential Female Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Kathy Bates Bates plays two women in Dolores Claiborne: the middle-aged haus Frau Dolores and the weathered old woman she becomes after her husband dies under mysterious circumstances. Told in a style that resembles mirrored glass shattering and reflecting old, bad memories, Bates is not only able to virtually glow when playing her character as a naïve, younger abused housewife, but she is also somehow able to pull off a startling transformation into the bitter crone that was born as the result"

Personal Fav's (9 movies items)

"One word: IMPRESSIVE! I could totally feel the friction between Dolores and her daughter...the hell they both have gone through. I loved this movie to bits. It's more than amazing adaptation of King's work. All hail Kathy Bates! "
