7 Women

Posted by martinteller on August 15, 2010

John Ford’s last film is one of his most thematically compelling, touching on issues of Christian hypocrisy, atheism, feminism and even a little bit of lesbianism.  I was pretty stunned to find myself getting very involved, as Ford keeps things interesting and always moving along smoothly.  Anne Bancroft is very good, and for the most part the rest of the cast holds their own (there are a handful of particularly lousy performances, though).  The most off-putting element was the blatantly stage-bound set, I couldn’t help but be distracted by its phoniness.  Other than that, however, not bad at all… and quite a surprise to see such unusually progressive attitudes from Ford.  Rating: 7
