Sorry to be that guy but Hugh Glass was born about twenty years after the French-Indian War ended. I would have guessed it was set earlier too.

Amazing Gothic visuals make this the best film I've seen in months. Great film.

This definitely seemed like a horror to me.

I'm guessing the vast majority of these checks are for the other movie.

If Cronenberg wanted to be popular he'd just do another body horror movie.

I agree that the story wasn't too great. Visuals were nice, though, sort of reminded me of Blade Runner. Wiseman's direction could have been better. Overall, though, it had what I wanted in a sf movie.

Just as good the second time, definitely lives up to its reputation.

This is a very poorly made film. I also think it's responsible for causing the shift to sound before the technology was really ready, certainly most early talkies are quite clumsy, especially compared to the cinematically rich silents. In any case, the hybrid sound/silent thing here was arbitrary and the casual use of black face isn't doing this any favors.

Lacks the visual panache I expect from Wise or for that matter Noir in general. What's even worse is the writing--this is filled with awful characters whose motivation doesn't make sense and the dialogue is particularly bad, especially the Bible quoting detective. 3/10

Kind of goes nowhere, especially some of the subplots such as the ones with the kids and their friends. I found the catalyst to the conflict between the women silly and contrived. Overall, below average.

Turns out it isn't meant to be a realistic film.

Still a fun movie and it doesn't outstay its welcome.

I'd like to see the tacky first sentence of the description removed, it doesn't fit in with the rest of the description and it isn't necessary. I'd also like to see a proper link under source, as it is it actually links back to itself.

Some nice stylistic flourishes and great pacing make up for a haphazard plot.

Good choices of lists from what I can tell.

I'm surprised to see someone describe this as dreamlike. The content is odd but it's presented in a straightforward way, which I think is an astonishingly bad choice on Malle's part. I was hoping for something with some atmosphere. This film is atrocious.

I think Bette Davis' creepy bug eyes are more the problem than jealousy.

I thought there were plenty of nice visual touches here. Ulmer obviously had a lot of talent.

I can't believe this still hasn't been fixed.

Strangely enthralling. This is probably the best of these types of film that I've seen.
