  1. Chris DeFalco's rating of the film Man Without a Star

    A bit of a mess, particularly in the cringeworthy attempts at comedy, but the film becomes interesting as the second half reveals itself to be a psychotic riff on the matinee western. Notable (post-war) Vidor theme: landscape as a place for violence and a place that violence is enacted upon (here, the barbed wire fencing). An unsettling conflation of sex and commerce/greed in the two scenes between Douglas/Crain.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Man Without a Star

    Movie about father/son relations hence about education and movie about the clash between the first settlers and the new eastern capitalists. 89 minutes of countless thoughts and ideas pictured in maybe King Vidor's last masterpiece. Essential if you're a movie lover.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Man Without a Star

    >>> Une oeuvre réfutée par le grand King Vidor qui se plaignit de ne point avoir eu les coudées franches dans la réalisation du film, l'acteur Kirk Douglas ayant une participation financière, eut plus que son mot à dire... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Thomas's rating of the film Man Without a Star

    Love him or hate him, Kirk Douglas' charisma and professionalism are magnificent.

  6. Steve G.'s rating of the film Man Without a Star

    Plotless western frippery that's only enlivened by Kirk Douglas being far more amazing than a fairly crap film deserves. With banjo numbers, gun tricks and a psychotic aversion to barbed wire - he keeps this one just about afloat entirely by himself.
