Beautiful unknown foreign film Nicholas Ray
14 December 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Remarkable film of the legendary director Nicholas Ray, who despite his virtues be a film is almost unknown, perhaps because of its purely exotic and unusual. Based on a script written and produced by the great writer Budd Schulberg, who apparently greatly annoyed Ray on the set, even to complete filming and personally supervise the assembly, the final film is strangely personal, an adventure film, wildly romantic and environmentalist, which affects the taste of the author by "outsiders", men who choose to live by their own rules (spelled out in the sequence of drunkenness), narrating the battle and recognition between a young idealist and quarrelsome, Plummer While playing a rare hero who will be responsible for protecting the birds and the natural reserve area, and the legendary hunter "Cottonmouth" huge Burl Ives, a kind of incarnation of the swamps, red-bearded god thundering and pirate honorable living free with his cohort of underprivileged and villains, in the twilight of a fading time.

Strangely fever, beautifully photographed (chaired by a bright green and watery), with an exemplary atmosphere with a very elaborate staging, a job to rediscover, unbalanced and flawed but unforgettable.
