Short Review: Wuthering Heights (1939)

Feb. 5, 2011<br /><br />31. Wuthering Heights (1939)<br /><br />Starring Merle Oberon, Laurence Olivier, David Niven, Flora Robson, Donald Crisp, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Hugh Williams, Leo G. Carroll<br /><br />Directed by William Wyler<br /><br />Plot: &#8220;The story of unfortunate lovers Heathcliff and Cathy who, despite a deep affection for one another, are forced by circumstance and prejudice to live their apart…&#8221; (from IMDb)<br /><br />Can I just say that I hated this movie? I know it&#8217;s a classic and all that, but I really don&#8217;t see what&#8217;s so wonderful. It&#8217;s supposed to be a great love story but what I see from this adaption is two selfish, shallow, demented people so consumed with lust that it ruins their lives. I&#8217;m sorry, but that is not romance. I really did not care at all for either character&#8212;Heathcliff or Cathy. So, I apologize for those that love this movie, I was really just waiting for it to end.

Can I just say that I hated this movie? I know it’s a classic and all that, but I really don’t see what’s so wonderful. It’s supposed to be a great love story but what I see from this adaption is two selfish, shallow, demented people so consumed with lust that it ruins their lives. I’m sorry, but that is not romance. I really did not care at all for either character—Heathcliff or Cathy. So, I apologize for those that love this movie, I was really just waiting for it to end.
