Gaslight (1944)

8 years, 8 months ago at Feb 21 10:04
Cukor never been a director that interests me too. His work seems formally correct but common or garden, without any originality, devoid of life. Do we owe, at least, being a great director of female stars, as has been said over and over again? It is possible, but... how often that he never worked bad actress?. Movie studios surrounded the good old Cukor always the most select group of actors, in ... read more

Time to demonstrate my gay card as I speak positively over Gaslight’s two hours of diva in full martyrdom! George Cukor’s gothic melodrama about a naïve young wife being slowly driven insane by her gold-digging husband is a lot of fun. It’s as atmospherically cluttered and inky as a Universal Monsters film and as well-acted as any of his heralded “women’s pictures” from the era. Of co... read more

Manierism, not just hitchcockian, just formalist wonderful manierism surrounds a simple plot of evil husband goes for vulnerable wife. Ingrid is perfect, as debutante Lansbury.

Gaslight

“Time to demonstrate my gay card as I speak positively over Gaslight’s two hours of diva in full martyrdom! George Cukor’s gothic melodrama about a naïve young wife being slowly driven insane by her gold-digging husband is a lot of fun. It’s as atmospherically cluttered and inky as a Universal Monsters film and as well-acted as any of his heralded “women’s pictures” from the era. Of course, having actors as great as Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer, and Angela Lansbury in major roles doesn’t hurt, either.   Sure, time has dulled some of the psychological terror that comes with watching Ingrid Bergman’s Victorian wife slowly losing grip on sanity, but there’s still plenty of studio-era visual poetry and lyrical acting gestures on display. The very artifice of a film like G” read more

The Abusive Relationship In Fiction (spoilers) (6 movies items)

"The Ingrid Bergman starrer lent its name to what psychologists now consider a common type of abuse, where information is intentionally manipulated to make the victim doubt his or her own perception. In the film, Bergman's husband, Charles Boyer, lures her into marriage and deliberately creates circumstances to try and convince her that she is losing her sanity. He tells her that the things she sees are a figment of her imagination. His motive is to have her certified as crazy, and institutionali"
