Lately, I have been focusing on silent features and this one was the last one I saw (for now). Honestly, I find it rather difficult to review this flick. Indeed, even though it was rather long (more than 130 minutes), especially for a silent feature, it was actually supposed to be 6 hours! After watching the whole thing, you wonder how Eric von Stroheim managed to get 6 hours from this story but,... read more
View all Foolish Wives reviews
Description: A beautiful reconstruction of Erich von Stroheim's classic silent feature. Publicized as the first film to cost a million dollars, "Foolish Wives" was at once praised for its extravagant visual design and condemned for its portrayal of a rogue count's unbridled and often peculiar sexual obsessions. The plot concerns the actions of the "Count" and two of his mistresses posing as his cousins as they set about separating rich ladies from their fortunes. In every way characteristic of writer/director/star von Stroheim's greatest works, "Foolish Wives" has over time gained a reputation as the great direc ... (more)

“Lately, I have been focusing on silent features and this one was the last one I saw (for now). Honestly, I find it rather difficult to review this flick. Indeed, even though it was rather long (more than 130 minutes), especially for a silent feature, it was actually supposed to be 6 hours! After watching the whole thing, you wonder how Eric von Stroheim managed to get 6 hours from this story but, I guess, we’ll never know. So, how can you review a movie when you have seen only a fraction of it? Many of us (include myself) blame Peter Jackson of indulging himself with overlong movies but, with von Stroheim, it goes to a whole different level and he must have been one of most decadent directors that ever lived. As a matter of fact, at the time, this movie was the most expensive ever made ” read more

"25.4. - VHS Kaikin puolin jees leffa. Erich von Stroheim oli ihan omiaan suoraselkäiseksi sikareita polttavaksi feikkiupseeriksi ja musana tällä kertaa toimiva viulupainotteinen klassinen hoiti hommansa oikein hyvin, oikeastaan ainoaksi suuremmaksi miinukseksi jäi erityisesti elokuvan keskikohtaa hallinnut hienoinen päämäärättömyyden tunne. Kasista ei kuitenkaan kaukana olla ja odotukset Greediä kohtaan vaan kasvaa. Jos mä nyt en ihan totaalisen väärässä oo, niin tässä ta"
