  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    An operatic Western directed with stylized sets and settings but one that survives its megalomania, delivering precious moments of cinematic climax. The amour fou between Pearl and Lewt (Peck is excellent as the amoral son) expands to a scope that usurps the entire family and the community, while Vidor conjures glowing imagery (the blood-red sky, the train derailment, the density of crowds in the constuction scene).

  2. Sebastiano Lombardo's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    The flamboyant palette will strongly remain in my mind. Not to mention Jennifer Jones unimaginable performance, which ultimately contributes to turn watching the film into an aesthetic rapture. Uncompromising hell of a western, pompous and wild, where the itinerary of a woman is outlined by her uterine sensitivity. It has one of the most dissonant ending in the history of the genre.

  3. garbaggio's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

  4. Chris DeFalco's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Silly, sure. But a delirious, obsessive fever dream - and one of the most sexual films to come out of the studio system. It's like Invaders From Mars at the scale of Gone With The Wind. And those reds and oranges and purples...

  5. ramosbarajas's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    With four directors and aspirations to be the next Gone With the Wind but about Texas, this films is equally as racist and not good. The role of "THE MESTIZA PEARL CHAVEZ" is one for the ages for all the wrong reasons.

  6. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Ridiculously over the top, immense fun to watch and absolutely beautiful. Jennifer Jones was not a great actress but a strong director like Vidor or Lubitsch or Huston knew how to bring out her sexiness, vulnerability and humor.

  7. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Deeply ridiculous and flawed when seen through a modern template, with a strange dynamic between the three leads and drastic changes in tone...however there are 3-4 moments that are brilliant -few directors would dare stage the horse wrangling sequence today, and the finale is incredible (and influential...!)

  8. Seesaw's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    The good is forgotten but the bad stigmatizes their existence. Under the sun, all is equal and cinema reflects the most blessed lovers who takes the risk.

  9. smndvdcl's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    A typically grandiose Selznick film with Vidor as his vessel. The film surpasses its caricatured characterisation if perceived poetically - love and hate, lust and power, desire and destructive co-dependency - the tortuous entanglement between lovers has universality. Lillian Gish is indomitable. Gregory Peck represents a foolish alpha. An intriguing archive in cinema.

  10. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    7.3/10, my review: https://wp.me/p1eXom-3rh “Passé in its configuration and ideology notwithstanding, DUEL IN THE SUN effuses a sizable magnitude of spectacular whether to accommodate one’s eyes or stir one’s sentiments."

  11. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    A movie I saw 3 or 4 times on TV in the 70's. Rewatched yesterday night because of its recent Blu-Ray release. Wow! A movie about a woman, about Jennifer Jones, who's literally burning in the film's glowing settings hence her repeated longing for ponds and rainy nights. Masterpiece.

  12. MarcusArcus's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Not as trashy as you'd expect, particularly bloated; the story behind the film is much more enticing than the movie itself (the camerawork is spectacular, though).

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Un classique du western romantique et fiévreux qui demeure un monument mythique du cinéma par sa folle tragédie quasi biblique, la violente et charnelle beauté de Jennifer Jones et l'excellente interprétation des principaux acteurs. En prime, un dernier quart d'heure époustouflant qui demeure un inoubliable morceau d'anthologie... www.cinefiches.com

  14. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Unusual for Hollywood to make a tragic western. Unusual to see Gregory Peck as a villain.

  15. bulgrin's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    The camera work is a five star. But the biggest problem of this film is and was the intervention of David O'Selznick.

  16. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

  17. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    A real overblown mess of a film, sad too bc I love Peck and Cotten. Selznicks worst production. Avoid at all costs.

  22. Trevor's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    The ending is simply perfect and one of cinema's greatest depictions of l'amour fou.

  23. Empire's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Unconventional western. There is a clear lack of pace, I guess some places in the west where quiet dull as in this movie.

  24. Cineastic's rating of the film Duel in the Sun

    Fucking unbearable. I very rarely every switch off films, but I couldn't get through the first half hour.
