    Un film con un gran senso dell'umorismo. E' anche semi-educativo visto come è stato messo in luca la corruttibilità dell'animo umano. Proprio niente male...non si poteva pretendere di più da un film che racconta di cercatori d'oro.

    guess they should've been a little more sincere when they were thanking that mountain.

    Gee, look! Zack posted yet another five-starred review. Doesn't this guy have any other defining characteristics apart from blind worship and glowing admiration?

    No?

    Deal with it.

    Oh Lordy, how I love this movie. If you thought some of my other reviews were shameless in praise and hyperbole, you ain't seen nothin' yet!

    The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is the Jesus Christ of films.

    ...? What?! That's impossible! I've already made that ridiculous claim about another movie? Oh, well.…

    Holy shit. The only way this film could have gotten better is if it was in colour. Wow. John Huston kills it with this masterpiece, blows Maltese Falcon out of the water. Great acting, dark characters, and deep concepts, this film was ahead of its time. Wow.

    To my dismay, it doesn't live up to the hype, at least for me. The bar fight scene was incredible, and raised my hopes for the rest, but it descends into a very predictable "greed corrupts" story-line. I also didn't think Bogart was especially good in the role. He wasn't his normal character, but the difference between his pre-gold and post-gold self wasn't too great.

    Walter Houston as the gold prospector was super sweet though.

    Funny after 16 years I finally understand a 'Toy Story 2' character reference after seeing this film.

    Anyway, this film is a masterclass in character drama and simmering tension by John Huston. Watch it.

    It's a story about three men searching for gold. In the process they have to deal with bandits, indians and nature.
    But also an important is the battle for their own sanity.

    A story about morals, dreams and obsession with a great sense of humor. (I'm always surprised how well those seemingly opposite things can work effectively together in the western.)

    What does the obsession do to a person?
    What is the difference between obsessions and dreams?

    This movie was made right where it belongs: in the golden age of Hollywood.


    PS: Also a fine example of the redemptive power of laughter.
