One of Sidney Lumet's first directing attempts is a brilliant, powerful andundeniably courageous motion picture - not at all a sprawling frenzy offeelings strung by hammy performances and corny dialogues, this film is arather organized , neat telling of eight graduates from Vassar-like collegeand th...
I saw this film last night and was absolutely stunned by how excellent itwas. Not only did it seem to be one of the first 'chick flicks' (sorryforanyone who hates that title) but it was incredibly brave to deal withextremly contentious issues. The colours and the costumes in the filmmadethe film s...
Widescreen, Technicolor and the best round up of girls since "TheWomen". What more could you ask? All the girls are great, but JessicaWalter is outstanding as she changes from self-assured sexy-romantic toa gossiping sexually repressed Bitch! No one else at that time couldhave played that part so be...
Glossy soap opera about 8 Vassar graduates of 1933. It follows theirlives after college and deals with alcoholism, mental breakdowns,frigidity, beatings, adultery, child rearing, lesbianism and death.I tried reading the book this was based on but I couldn't understandit. They kept throwing in 1930s ...
Anyone who thinks that this film is anti-man is wrong; the problem isthat it was adapted from a novel that is, frankly, anti-human. MaryMcCarthy's novel was one long sneer at all of the women she graduatedfrom Vasaar with and who didn't have as wonderful and fulfilling acareer as she did. They're to...
This is a thoroughly enjoyable reworking of Mary McCarthy's book...whilecertain portions of the story & dialog are toned down from the frank &sexual novel, the gist remains intact. The story of a group of protectedcollegiate girls during the Depression being plunged into reallife...marriage, affairs...
Film producer Sidney Buchman also took on the enormous task of adaptingMary McCarthy's well-loved novel to the screen, that of eight Vassargraduates in 1933 who take different paths in life but who alwaysmanage to stay in touch. Buchman and director Sidney Lumet almost pullit off, despite insurmount...
but this film is interesting for the cast, and the time period it depicts. Also the costumes are rather amusing. I have not yet read the book although several reviews have mentioned the time warp factor. Candice Bergen is in an early role as member of an elite group of Vassar graduates. Joan Hac...
A poor script, directed by Sidney Lumet, looses the social observationand satiric tone of Mary McCarthy's novel turning it into a glossy,breezy, soap opera. The characters, their problems and relationshipsare none too compelling, and who is the audience supposed to identifywith? The film moves along...
It's the second time I saw it and it improved immensely. The first timegave a muddled impression and it was difficult to understand what itwas about. Now I was swept away by it and felt for the girls. What great performances by these actresses! Kathleen Widdoes, JessicaWalter and Shirley Knight came...
Homosexuality, frigidity, abortion, mental illness, contraception...Controversial issues are the subject of "The Group," which is why theoblique way they're treated is so disappointing. To be fair, LarryHagman's character does use the word Lesbo, but by the time he blurtsit out, it's long since been...
Sidney Lumet is a masterful craftsman of socially aware drama thattackles important cultural questions, and even for its time, which wasa time of radical social change that beginning to reflect on theaterscreens, The Group treated some divisive themes, for example theassociation of free love with pr...
This film would have been very refreshing if it had been released inthe era in which it is set; but even in 1966 it must have been out ofplace when much more daring material was in theaters--despite thesubjects upon which it touches. So how much more dated is it now? Very.You'd think being more educ...
This picture is glossy, stylishly photographed, full of vibrantcharacters, with periods of excellent dialogue. It was fun seeingseveral future stars in their first big movie roles...but I didn't likeit.I gave the movie 4 stars because of the qualities listed above, but Ifound it to be a high-powered...
Ugh! I stuck it out for 45 minutes shaking my head at what I perceivedto be the most muddled script in the history of film. What a mess! Thepoor writer was utterly lost and had no idea where he was going or whathe was doing. There are so many things wrong with this film that it'sreally difficult to ...
Just watched for the second time in my life this Sidney Lumetadaptation of Mary McCarthy's novel "The Group", this time on Netflixstreaming. It's about eight women who graduated from Vassar in 1933 andtheir trials and tribulations during that time and subsequent yearsthrough the beginning of the sec...
This 1966 film follows the path of 8 college girls who had graduatedfrom a Vassar-like institution. It had to be an affluent piece sincewomen attending college circa 1933, in the midst of an economicdepression, had to come from rich families.What's wrong with the film is that some of the topics disc...
I have never reacted to a movie quite as I did this one. At almostevery moment I was ready to hit the delete button, but I wound upwatching the whole two and a half hours. I liked the concept offollowing a close-knit group of women from the time they graduated froman exclusive girl's college in 1933...
One of the worst pieces of direction by a major director I have everseen. Was this really the same work of the man who was at the helm of12 Angry Men? The cast, as good as they were, were spouting lines asthough it was a local Amateur dramatics night - the worst was the actorwho played Sloane. Jessi...
Having seen 4 or 5 other films by Lumet (The network, Critical care,Serpicoa.o)I have to say its the worst of him I 've seen so far. That doesntnecessarily make it bad, because its not. It's kind of "layed back" and itwasnt too involving for me, even in dialog part. Sure it was goodentertainment see...
A lackluster soap opera for people who don't like to admit that theywatch soap operas, THE GROUP may very well be the lowest energy filmever directed by a top talent: Sidney Lumet. There's a lot ofmelodrama, backstabbing, bitchiness, and enough male-bashing to makeyou cringe. Lumet has nonetheless a...
The 'daring' subject matter - eight girls live life, i.e. abortions,marriage, sexual experimentation, flirtations with - ooh! - left-wingpolitics, alcoholism, professional struggles, art etc. - is filmed with alot of cinematic huffpuff, that cannot conceal its Beatrix Potter-likecuddly quaintness. ...
If you haven't seen PATCH OF BLUE yet, stop reading this, go to Amazonor wherever and buy the DVD for $10. Once you do, you'll know why I satthrough this disappointment. It was joy to see Ms. Hartman in color forthe first time. Was that reddish hair her real color?With Sidney Lumet directing, I coul...
