Cat On a Hot Tin Roof

9 years, 5 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

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, in that it contradicts the virtues of traditional family values and capitalism.” read more

Movie Reviews (1901-50) (50 movies items)

" Drama that has a good edge to it, but sadly one can sense how the censors forced the director to put on the brakes in some of the more intense scenes which make the film lose it's cutting edge. Had the film been intact and even closer to it's source material it would probably have stood out as a "top 10 must see" movie of it's genre instead of only being a phenomenally good acted movie stopped in it's tracks."

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"17.9. (VHS) Elokuva Big Daddyn synttäreistä. Jostain syystä Hollywoodissa (ehkä tässä tapauksessa sittenkin syvässä etelässä?) on huomattavasti muuta maailmaa parempi viinapää, kun melekoista putkea vetävä Paul Newmankin vaikuttaa vesiselvältä, lähinnä naamansa pesemättä jättäneeltä. Elokuvassa opitaan elämästä, siitä kuinka onni saattaa löytyä omistamisen ja turhan roinan sijaan ihmissuhteista, rakastamisesta ja omaa sydäntään miellyttävästä elämäntavasta. "
