Say it with me: "Rich people bad... Nonconformists good..." That said, even though it's heavy-handed it's not a bad movie. I enjoyed the cinematography most, the cool shots and lighting. Our man Ron Kirby, though, only seemed human when Cary (a woman, as opposed to Cary Grant) broke up with him, perturbing his imperturbable rightness. And wow, her son was one of the biggest bastards I've ever seen.

I have not been so emotionally invested in a film in a long time. Though some scenes at the end are a tad off, (I personally would have preferred that Cary stand up to her awful children, rather than just allow the pieces to coincidentally fall into place; WHY DID THEY FEEL THE NEED TO INCLUDE THE SCENE WITH THE DOCTOR?!?! DID THIS GUY WHO WE'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE SERIOUSLY MOTIVATE HER TO DO WHAT SHE DOES?!?!) all of the choices made and problems faced make perfect sense.

Overpraised by auteurists, All That Heaven Allows is nonetheless an impressive piece of old fashioned Hollywood film making that has more depth than your average melodrama from the same period. The framing is impeccable, and the colours are moody, expressionistic and vivid, detailing the inner lives of the characters and intensifying the drama at crucial moments. While the film is broadly a critique of bourgeois values, it also has the stones to tackle class, which is a big no-no today.

'Drama, comedy, life's parade at your fingertips.' I found it surprising how upfront the social criticism in this was, it hardly even feels like subtext that would have gone unnoticed to viewers of the time. I think you'll find a lot more actual subversion going on in a Tashlin film. But rather than any 'hidden meaning' to be discovered, what really sells this is the impeccable, gorgeous style (those fucking colors!) that clearly influenced everyone from Fassbinder to Almodovar to Kaurismaki.

A suburban widow (Jane Wyman) falls in love with a younger arborist (Rock Hudson), and they soon plan to marry...but her social circle and children are not so quick to accept him. First and foremost, the use of Technicolor is almost beyond words; Russell Metty and Sirk make one of the most gorgeously saturated films I've ever seen. And Sirk's critique of 'respectability' and suburban values really stings. Magnificent work from Wyman and Hudson; the plot feels a bit rushed at times but enthralls.

The drama of younger man dating a older woman seems dated and a little silly. The selfishness of the children made them appear very cruel and self centered.

as the ending approached, endless layers of irony and destiny were heaped upon the narrative, but all i could think about was how wrinkly those old mens' faces get when they kiss. douglas sirk makes me want to vomit rainbows. homosexual rainbows.

It's brilliant how Sirk constructs an apparently conformist film about conformity and addressed to conformists. His hints of critique are subtle, but wonderfully pregnant. In a setting of dull judgemental conformist society, you see fits of rebellion against consumerism, patriarchy, sexual constraint, even homophobia. Sirk's boldest move? A woman embodies all this rebellion, without it seeming so.

everyone and everything in the movie is a (beautifully) painted cardboard cutout, except for Cary. could have easily failed, but in Sirk's expert hands it just works perfectly.
