  1. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

  2. olivia's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

  3. TheoElefthe's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Soapy and boring, albeit a Douglas Sirk's film.

  4. Ian Bradley's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

  5. Thomas's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Colourful soapy melodrama. Pure glorious fluff, just a bit too much for me this one. The technicolor flowers steal the show.

  6. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Disappointingly empty melodrama, a trashy tale with bogus philosophizing given the full-gloss treatment. Sirk's direction is often elegant and clever but rather under-powered. Far inferior to 'Written On the Wind' and 'All That Heaven Allows'.

  7. samuele90's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Un ereditiere nullafacente vuole usare il superpotere della caritas cristiana per scoparsi la vedova di un dottore morto per colpa sua. Lei diventerà cieca per colpa sua. Lui in risposta studierà per diventare neurochirurgo, operarla, e vivere insieme a lei.

  8. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    It doesn’t aim for high art, but instead indulges in trashiness. Even with its ridiculous moral compass — this is a Christian ass movie — Sirk mysteriously (and I say mysterious because I truly can’t figure it out) works it out. What we get is a film that’s not immediately as ironic or critical as some of his later works, but one that is nonetheless masterfully sugary.

  9. Seesaw's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    That one signature shot of Hudson..

  10. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Not sold on the romantic pairing of Wyman and Hudson as they never really feel perfect for each other, but the decor and melodrama that push what would have been a season-long soap opera arc into one film is engaging and fun enough. The one and only original THE Rock also do one of his better roles here as he goes from non-caring playboy to a gentle and loving doctor.

  11. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    I'm new to Douglas Sirk so that may explain it but I didn't see any irony here.

  12. mis marg's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    nothing like altruism to touch the heart. help and don't tell..

  13. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Heartbreaking. Wyman is unbelievable. Her performance should be the stuff of legend. I nearly teared up a couple of times. Plots as far-fetched as this one could also fall into the ridiculous, but it's pulled off with a straight face.

  14. Sarah Pietsch's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Bit cheesy but still very watchable. Not one of his best. But give it a go anyway, Sirk is one of a kind.

  15. schmalhans's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Kitschy, yet elegant melodram full of Technicolor warmth and a grand look on all that is humankinds flaws and features.

  16. cyrildruesne's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Pas mal, si ce n'est quelques raccourcis extravagants.

  17. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Really couldn't get on with this. The minute the celestial choirs come on the soundtrack you just know that it's going to be religiously inspired redemption with quite a lot of mawkish sentimentality for good measure. Have been really engaged by other Sirk but sadly not this one.

  18. AVA's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Ein klassisch schönes Melodram mit moralisch erhobenem Zeigefinger. Selbstlos sei der Mensch.Klingt so befremdlich in heutigem Zeitgeist.

  19. Luke Corradine's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Charmingly growing in me as minutes went by... but why does it feel like Jane Wyman could be Hudson's mother? is it the hair do? Is it the melancholic frown?...

  20. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    The plot could come out from Danielle Steel, but in the hands of the master, a masterpiece is made.

  21. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    As wonderful and entertaining as it is melodramatic and preposterous, Magnificent Obsession is arguably THE great Douglas Sirk film, helped along by central performances from Rock Hudson, Jane Wyman, and Agnes Moorhead. It shouldn't work, because you should be laughing at the ridiculousness of it all, but it does. Oh, it really does.

  22. RebeccaLily's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Bizarre misogynistic fantasy. Kill a woman's husband, hound her til she becomes so emotionally and physically vulnerable that she has no more defences against you, lodge yourself in her family after she runs away from you, then literally put your hands inside her head while she lies semi-lifeless on an operating table. Full of dodgy symbology - not to mention the actual witch burning!

  23. riraru's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    Wahnsinn! Die Mutter aller Groschenromane.

  24. Yvonx S's rating of the film Magnificent Obsession

    After a promising start this film slipped down into mawkish cliches of woman as perfect angel and rakish man redeeming himself having realised the error of his ways. It hasn't aged well. The painted backdrops and swollen violin music add further far from subtle artifice to two dimensional characters playing out their roles with little originality but much predictability. Dissapointing apart from her fab sunglasses.
