King Vidor United States, 1949

Hikaru's rating of the film Beyond the Forest

I have no doubt that this is a tour de force for both Davis and Vidor, but in my opinion, her intensity is too overwhelming and pushes everything else into the background. For instance, I would’ve love to see more of the conflict between her and Cotten’s characters. In any case, this is a powerhouse of a movie.
