A classic

Since this flick is on the list '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die', I was definitely eager to check it out. I have already seen two other versions of this story ('Ossessione' (1943), 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' (1981)) and this version is best one I have seen so far (still have to see the very first one 'Le dernier tournant' (1939)), on the other hand, I'm pretty much done with this st... read more

"09.11.2014 The highlights of this movie are the beautiful Lana Turner and the nice film noir typical night shots. But the story is weak. My rating: 7,0"

" Put together attractive young wife, old, hardly-ever-sober husband (OK, how are they even married?) and a handsome newcomer in noir atmosphere and guess what will happen? Despite usual noir formula, "Postman" kept me wondering how will it reach to the destined ending. I was okay with the occurrences, even willing to go along with some excessive subplots, until the lame final speech at the end. Yes, ending again. It's important to me to get satisfying ending... This just wasn't the case."

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Lana Turner (both cold, vulnerable and calculating as she married for money) being one of the essential femme fatales in one of the most complete and most influential film noirs ever made. How the passion, plan and murder is carried out is realistically portrayed. It got all the expected characters plus great photography and plot twists. Hume Cronyn in a small but scene-stealing performance. The Downs: The final confession to the priest is the Hollywood moral lesson and it is a sha"

" John Garfield plays Frank Chambers, a restless drifter who comes across a roadside restaurant/gas station and is hired by some nice old dude named Nick Smith. But it just so turns out the old man has a young blonde bombshell of a wife. That saucy femme fatale is Cora, played by the sultry Lana Turner, and she hits it off with Frank very very well. The two fall in love, at first trying to resist their powerful feelings for each, but eventually succumbing to it and conjuring up a plot to kil"
