Cat On a Hot Tin Roof

11 years, 7 months ago at Mar 10 7:08
Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman give a tremendous amount of emotional heft, sexual heat and acting pyrotechnics to Tennessee Williams’ play about family strife, emotional turmoil and possible homosexuality. It doesn’t quite open up the play and allow for the film to show as deep psychological insight as A Streetcar Named Desire, still the best stage-to-screen adaptation, but it does a great j... read more

A classic

Since I’m a huge fan of Paul Newman, I was really eager to check this flick. I remember when I saw ‘A Streetcar named Desire’, I was quite blown away, and this movie is also a very successful adaptation of a play written by Tennessee Williams, even though, apparently, it wasn’t really faithful which was a disappointment for Paul Newman and Williams really disliked it (the biggest change th... read more

The film's script is heavy on dialogue. But because of the story's thematic depth, the issues are interesting and insightful, and the script never seems talky. At the heart of the story is the subject of mendacity, of lies and not telling the truth. There is considerable emotional pain, expressed as anger, resentment, and sarcasm. The story, originated by Tennessee Williams, goes against its era, ... read more

" In a well-to-do family, Brick Politt, is an ex-athlete who drinks to forget why there's an "ex" before "athlete". However, at a family reunion, deep seated memories are jogged which explain why this movie is on this list... Pulitzer Prize winning family dysfunction, Tennessee Williams style. BTW, on a side note, if you're a young movie fan and wonder why Elizabeth Taylor is considered such an iconic Hollywood beauty in the world of golden age cinema, this is one of the films that will sho"

"First viewing - Sept. 15th Netflix has a shortage of classic films these days, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this and the film below which when combined gave me a nice Liz Taylor double feature. The writing of this film is outstanding, when it ended I kept thinking about its construction and the way it unveils the characters. And of course the performances are wonderful...I was most impressed by Burl Ives, probably because I haven't seen him act very often. I mostly loved the film, and "
