Kyle Hadley: To beauty, to truthwhich is anything but beautiful.
LOVE this film!! Almost all the Sirks really except Magnificent Obsession which while it has all the Sirkian touches and nice production values is so much convoluted hooey. But this and Tarnished Angels are wonderfully trenchant films and this is SO lush with the divine Dorothy Malone positively consuming the scenery in the best possible way. He has many others-Lured, Take Me To Town, All I Desire, There's Always Tomorrow, his two with Linda Darnell...Summer Storm & The Lady Pays Off and of course Imitation of Life among them, that are wonderful in their various ways.

"This is a tough, tough call, but considering I still dream about whole sections of it so many years after having seen it only once, I gotta give it to 2046."
"I've only seen a handful but my favorite is still Happy Together. I've been dying to see Chungking Express for ages though and have never been able to find it. "
