“Perhaps the most perverse film of Joan Crawford’s 1950s diva phase; Female on the Beach is certainly one of the best!”
Eddie Muller & Alan Rode, American Cinematheque [Read More]

 

The Woman on the Beach is mesmerizing. This strange, messy, moody drama about three sick people was uneasily stranded amid the conventions of Hollywood romance. It opens with a dream sequence, and the oneiric mood is carried on by images on the edge of the surreal […] it ends as weirdly as it began. Without the censors’ objections, the film might have been a more standard love triangle: the fact that Joan Bennett is never clearly defined as either a villainess or an abused wife gives the story its obscure open-endedness.”
Imogen Sara Smith, In Lonely Places [Read More]
