I refuse to believe that even in 1955 this was viewed as wild, boundary pushing, erotically-charged cinema. Especially considering that the same decade gave us Seven-Year-Itch, Some Like It Hot and A Streetcar Named Desire, amongst other more truly daring and sexually-knowing works. Picnic has not aged particularly well, but I doubt it was ever terribly good to begin with.

Before long he has managed to steal Madge Owens, the most attractive girl in town, away from his pal. Much of the drama takes place in the midst of the to ... (more)

"19.1. Teeman jämäklassikko on sanomaltaan ja huumoriltaan auttamattoman vanhentunut. Näyttely vetää huonolla tavalla yli, mutta värien ja varjojen käyttö yöllisissä kohtauksissa on esimerkillisen komeaa. Olin tätä ennen syönyt itseni aivan tajuttomaan ähkyyn, enkä tyyliin päässyt enää ylös sohvalta, joten siinä tilanteessa tämän katsoi ilman pahempia vitutuksia ja paljon mieluummin kuin mitään muuta television ohjelmatarjonnasta. Tekstityksissä nauratti erään tytö"

'Julyary': Movies Seen in July 2013 (50 movies items)

" The 1950s were a peak period for overwritten melodramatic plays about people who fall in love at a time when their ages, life situations, and psychological problems make it impossible for them to be anything but miserable together. I'm getting sick of movies based on such plays, with their whiny, suffocating bleakness. People constantly shout, weep, and insult each other until I'm so exasperated that I don't care how they feel.
