A classic

4 months, 4 weeks ago at May 20 6:19
Since this movie is a classic and since it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, it didn't completely blow me away. First of all, even though Joan Crawford delivered a solid performance and won at the time the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, in my opinion, h... read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: September (31 movies items)

"First viewing - Sept. 2nd Mildred Pierce is mostly worth seeing for Joan Crawford's performance, as she does a stellar job of bringing the titular character to life. There's enough going on to keep you invested in the story, and yet it runs a bit overlong. It also doesn't help that it uses the approach of starting with an important scene and then backtracking to give the full history that led to that moment, when a straight linear approach would've worked far better. Or maybe I'm just getting t"

A classic

“Since this movie is a classic and since it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, it didn't completely blow me away. First of all, even though Joan Crawford delivered a solid performance and won at the time the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, in my opinion, her character should have been more complex. Indeed, even though Mildred Pierce was first presented as a possible murderer, Crawford slowly removed any evidence that this woman was anything else than perfect and it backfired as it made this woman much lesser interesting than when the movie started. Eventually, the more complex character turned out to be actually Veda Pierce thanks to a really stron” read more

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Based on the James M. Cain novel of the same name, Michael Curtiz's Noir Melodrama 'Mildred Pierce' simplified the psychologically-complex source material to create a striking, emotionally-engaging piece of cinema. Standing out as a Noir that focuses primarily on women, 'Mildred Pierce' benefits hugely from a glorious central performance by Joan Crawford whose hypnotic eyes and expressive face override any initial concerns about the film's potential for overwrought histrionics. Unusually, given "

" This film won Joan Crawford an Academy Award for Best Actress, and it's no wonder: it's difficult to think of a better-rounded or suitably challenging role for an older female in Hollywood. The leading cast is filled with juicy roles; as Mildred, Joan Crawford is alternately sympathetic and pathetic. This is a wonderful film about terrible people doing even worse things to each other.
