A very good movie

7 years, 3 months ago at Mar 7 8:53
Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out and the fact that I always enjoyed Sydney Pollack's work made made me even more eager. Actually, it had been a while since I saw one of his movies but this one really blew me away and it is definitely one of his best efforts. I mean, I knew beforehand that it was dealing with a dance marathon but I thought those ... read more

Description: The Depression and the Thirties. Most Americans were hungry; careers were broken; people were at a loss to understand what had happened. Most of them had been brought up to believe that if you worked hard and well, and otherwise behaved yourself, good fortune would be your fate. Yet during the Depression, failure, want, and defeat visited multitudes. They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? is an evocation of that time. Some have interpreted the movie as a parable about the human condition. Horace McCoy’s 1935 novel has been adapted for the screen by James Poe and Robert E. Thompson. A peculiar phenomenon of the Depression era was ... (more)

Jane Fonda Films Viewed by Kathy (24 movies items)

" Director: Sydney Pollack Starring: Jane Fonda, Michael Sarrazin, Susannah York, Red Buttons, Bruce Dern, Bonnie Bedelia and Gig Young The lives of a disparate group of contestants intertwine in an inhumanely grueling marathon dance contest during the Great Depression. Rocky, the obnoxious emcee offers prize money of $1,500, a small fortune during hard economic times that brings out the worst in several participants. Among them are Gloria Beatty, a malcontent who's partnered with a drifter, R"

"One of the most overrated movies I've ever seen. I found some value in it but I'm perplexed by all the critical acclaim."

Elokuvapäiväkirja (48 movies items)

"Olisin kai halunnut pitää tästä, ehkä jos olisin ollut nuorempi tai pidän sitten kun olen vanhempi. Ehkä oli väärä fiilis. Jotenkin ärsyttävän tönkkö ja yhteiskuntasatiiri oli alleviivaavaa. Elokuva yritti olla räiskyvä ja provokatiivinen, mutta käytännössä se oli pitkäpiimäinen ja tylsämielinen. Tai no mitä odotin elokuvalta maratontansseista? Black Mirror -jaksona nämä tällaiset. (dvd 1.4)"
