A classic

Since this movie is a classic and since it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, it didn't completely blow me away. First of all, even though Joan Crawford delivered a solid performance and won at the time the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, in my opinion, h... read more

TCM’s Essentials Vol 2: Another 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“This is probably the most compelling I’ve ever seen Joan Crawford in a film…. Ann Blyth was a very interesting actress to me because she was so doll-like. She had a very ethereal, almost otherworldly kind of facial mask. You don’t know what is going to happen to her or come out of her. And she’s just this monster – your worst night as a kid.” - Alec Baldwin “I love Mildred Pierce. Besides it being a big comeback for Joan Crawford, I think it’s about as definitive a Warner Bro"

Slant’s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"American crime films and pulp writing aren’t normally considered as paragons of feminism, as they often see women as figures of asexualized competency or as femme fatales, those murderous succubae who use sex to socially empower themselves (though the potential necessity of that gambit in a world rigged against women is often under-considered). Distinguishing Michael Curtiz’s Mildred Pierce from many noirs, then, is its disarmingly and modernly casual sense of the reliable humiliation of lif"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: September (31 movies items)

"First viewing - Sept. 2nd Mildred Pierce is mostly worth seeing for Joan Crawford's performance, as she does a stellar job of bringing the titular character to life. There's enough going on to keep you invested in the story, and yet it runs a bit overlong. It also doesn't help that it uses the approach of starting with an important scene and then backtracking to give the full history that led to that moment, when a straight linear approach would've worked far better. Or maybe I'm just getting t"
