Richard Brody New Yorker Its rhetoric may be laconic and folksy, but its fury and its nobility seem distilled from Shakespeare. Jan 23, 2017 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A rich family drama anchored by Robert Mitchum's fine performance and further distinguished by superlative support, by George (two of them, actually). Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 7, 2021 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Although it is too long and there are some perplexing gaps and ambiguities in the story, this is an interesting and richly atmospheric rural drama with a Deep South locale. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Dwight MacDonald Esquire Magazine Minnelli milks every last drop of sentiment from the not-at-all distinguished script. And many drops that aren't there. Jul 12, 2019 Full Review Raquel Stecher Out of the Past it deserves more recognition for its exploration of toxic masculinity, its portrayal of a dysfunctional family, Minnelli's excellent direction and the great cast. Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Paul Brenner Filmcritic.com Minnelli pulls back the stinky underbelly of this Texan-hell family in all his scope splendor Rated: 4/5 Mar 21, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member I'm sure it was a big movie in it's time, but I didn't really enoy the story much despite the great cast Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Its rhetoric may be laconic and folksy, but its fury and its nobility seem distilled from Shakespeare. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Great epic. Shows why Peppard rose to be a star. Also showcases how under rated Robert Mitchum has been in Hollywood.
