A good movie

1 year, 10 months ago at Apr 5 21:04
This is such a weird movie… I already saw it a while back but I kept thinking about it through the years and I was really eager to check it out again. It was the 3rd movie Don Siegel made with Clint Eastwood and probably the most osbcure one but, apparently, it was Siegel's favorite of all his films and I can see why. Indeed, basically, it is some kind of erotic thriller taking place during the ... read more

During the civil war, injured Yankee soldier, John McBurney is rescued on the verge of death by a teenage girl from a southern boarding school. She manages to get him back to the school, and at first the all-female staff and pupils are scared. As he starts to recover, one by one he charms them and the atmosphere becomes filled with jealousy and deceit.

Taste of Cinema - 30 Greatest Westerns (30 movies items)

"This extraordinary film teams Clint Eastwood with his Coogan’s Bluff director Don Siegel. He plays a Yankee soldier lost and injured behind enemy lines during the American Civil War, who gets taken in and cared for by an isolated school for girls in the Deep South. During his slow recovery he sleeps with several of the teachers and pupils, and causes a jealous firestorm to develop amongst them. This gothic melodrama concludes with a terrible fate for Eastwood’s character, who is closer to a "

WATCHED IN 2015 (272 movies items)

"30.6. Southern gothic story is more psychological thriller than anything else. Overacting (Geraldine Page is good) hurts this movie badly. Also the subconscious voice-overs are corny and ruins the mood. Don Siegel's best film is easily Charley Varrick from 1973. It's on my personal top-10 list."

A good movie

“This is such a weird movie… I already saw it a while back but I kept thinking about it through the years and I was really eager to check it out again. It was the 3rd movie Don Siegel made with Clint Eastwood and probably the most osbcure one but, apparently, it was Siegel's favorite of all his films and I can see why. Indeed, basically, it is some kind of erotic thriller taking place during the Civil war which is one of the oddest mix you will ever get. In my opinion, Clint Eastwood always wanted to try different stuff as an actor but never got the opportunity so it was one of the reasons he started to direct his own movies in the first place. In this movie, he gets to play some kind of womanizer and you never know for sure if the guy is actually a total creep or just some random guy who” read more

Murder, Mystery, and Obscure Films (Part 1) (36 movies items)

" Directed by the great Don Siegel ( Invasion of The Body Snatchers 1956, The Killers 1964 Dirty Harry 1971 This stars Clint Eastwood, Geraldine Page and Elizabeth Hartman. Eastwood plays John McBurney who is a Union soldier imprisoned in a Confederate girls boarding school. A very slow yet tautly drawn web of psycho sexual unease forms as he works his charms on each of these lonely women’s psyche. "

Katsottuja elokuvia (108 movies items)

"Draamajännäri The Beguiled ei menestynyt aikoinaan kummoisesti, mutta se on ohjaa Don Siegelin ja Eastwoodin omia suosikeita. Tunnelmallinen filmi on kiinnostava poikkeus molempien uralla, vaikka suuri klassikko se ei ole. Tarinasta voi löytää goottikauhun elementtejä, mutta toteutukseltaan se on enemmän nihilistinen melodraama. Roolihahmot ovat turhan yksipuolisia, mikä syö henkilöpainotteisen elokuvan kiinnostavuutta. Silti kyseessä on vaikuttava pätkä."
