5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a gem., 29 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Third Man: Special Edition [DVD] [1949] (DVD)
To me these odd and weird remarks on picture quality and the texture of a coat and screen size and other petty and quite unimportant pedantry are so baffling and so much beside the point it makes one wonder whether this one-time masterpiece of a film has made any impact at all as a work of art on these reviewers.
To me this film is the absolute top of the list of all the films I have watched in my life.
I have seen it eleven times (one of which in Vienna)and I look forward to watching it again. Everything in it is just perfect, even the minor part played by Paul Hörbiger and the still smaller part played by Hedwig Bleibtreu (Anna's landlady), ......acting, directing, editing, photography, script and music, -all is beyond reproach and so well balanced. The intense atmosphere of this film has hardly ever been matched in any other story on the screen.
Orson Welles and Paul Hörbiger and Trevor Howard stand out as bloody geniuses in film history and it is probably also Joseph Cotten's tour de force in his acting career.
