Gone with the Wind
The greatest romance of all time!
An American classic in which a manipulative woman and a roguish man carry on a turbulent love affair in the American south during the Civil War and Reconstruction.
**Part of the Best Picture**
Few films, if any, accomplish technical excellence, and it’s not hard to see why. Many films, even good ones, have some flaws that keep them from perfection. So it really amazes me that a film like Gone with the Wind with the production history it had managed to be just so damn perfect. There isn’t a thing wrong with it. It is a master class lesson in nearly everything that makes up cinema, and what amazes me even more is how the sheer epic nature of the film holds up even today.
Until this watch, I had not seen Gone with The Wind since I was very young, and my grandmother took me to see…
I had a dream about this film last night. There was nothing particularly special about the dream, which essentially consisted of me watching moments in the film. What was interesting to note is that when I woke up I had this sincere feeling of appreciation for this work. I had, and held onto for many hours, an understanding of what made this film so unbelievably popular when it first came into the world. I can't express in words just what that feeling was, probably love, but I know that it was intense.
A lot of people suggest that a flaw of this film is that it is long. I say that what these people are doing is listing something that…
I tried with this movie...I really did, but I just could not get into it. This might've come off as high drama back in 1939, but here in 2013, it's nothing more than a glorified soap opera. A glorified soap opera that's nearly 4 hours. I've seen movies where a very long running time has felt justified, but all throughout Gone With The Wind, I couldn't help but thik how much time could've been trimmed. Not only that, but there were also many stretches where I was just plain bored. On top of that, Scarlett O'Hara is a spoiled bitch who I just wanted to slap after so many scenes. Even if we're not supposed to sympathize with her, putting…
You can tell just by the title this one is about farts.
HA HA. I'm just kidding. That would be silly. It's obviously not about farts. It's actually about Rhett Butler's long journey to find relief for his irritable bowel syndrome because Scarlett gets tired of him shitting the bed every night.
The defining Hollywood film. They really don't make 'em like they used to.
"You think that by saying "I'm sorry," all the past can be corrected"— Rhett Butler.
La nominada a 13 Academy Awards, y ganadora de 9.
Qué peliculón. Esto es de lo mejor que ha pasado por la gran pantalla.
Escenografía, casi perfecta, aunque en algunos momentos, casi me sentía dentro del set... por ser un film del 39, lo dejo pasar; porque el resto está excelente en todos los aspectos, dirección artística, guión, vestuario, soundtrack y cinematografía. Actuaciones concorde al estilo de la época. La verdad es que la mera producción es increíble, junto con la dirección de Victor Fleming. Y después de ver a Vivien Leigh, como Scarlett O'Hara, siento que la amo.
Esta debe ser de las mejores…
I'm a book nerd. I admit it. I love movies, but nothing makes me happy quite like a good book. Similarly, given a choice between reading a novel and watching a movie adaptation of a novel, I will always choose the novel.
As a film, Gone With the Wind is great. Great sets, great costumes. It's just not the book.
Directed by Victor Fleming
"Gone with the Wind" is almost impossible to review at this point. Obviously it's gone beyond just being a film classic and has ingrained itself into American pop culture in a way very few movies do. I think, although I'm not entirely sure, this is the first time I've watched it all the way through. I know I've seen individual scenes here and there and have read many books and reviews, but I don't think I've ever made it through the whole nearly 4 hours until now.
Of the great American Classics of this era ("Citizen Kane", "Wizard of Oz", "Casablanca", "The Grapes of Wrath", etc.) this one doesn't stand the test of time…
Wow, I felt the 4 hours!
Although I enjoyed this epic cinematic classic, it did feel long at times.
Amazing photography, some shots will stay with me forever I'm sure. I see why this film has been held to such high standards.
American Civil War melodrama set in the Antebellum South. It's exactly what you'd expect - lavish, well crafted, revisionist, dated and simplistic yet complicated at the same time. Much like the war it depicts, it's not at all straightforward to come to a view on.
Scarlett O'Hara might have been the greatest Survivor contestant of all time. Manipulative, industrious, and irresistible.
eh niga this movie was borin as fuk i didnt get no explosions or gun fights i waited lik 30min and stoopped
The turbulence of the Civil War and Reconstruction provides the perfect backdrop for the turbulent romances of Scarlett O'Hara. The greatest love story about repulsion ever put on film
"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."
One of the most famous lines in film history, is perform brilliantly by Clark Gable, But everyone in this historical romantic epic is fantastic. With Vivien Leigh possibly being most suited to her character Scarlett O'Hara. The love story between Scarlett and Rhett butler (Clark Gable) is a doomed romance from the start but takes on a intriguing ride.
They just don't make films like this anymore, the grandness of the film is rarely matched. The nature filled rich landscapes. the colours used are truly stunning. The characters relationship does come across as still relevant and realistic possibly more inkeeping with modern day romance.
