The Reviews for Mickey One (1965) 1080p

Visually stunning Kafkaesque thrillerReviewed byEThompsonUMDVote: 9/10

Thanks to AMC's Film Preservation series those of us who had missed the rare previous opportunities to view this out-of-print cult classic on television were recently afforded a cinematic pleasure of the highest order.

Everything about this film impressed me enormously - its startling New Wave-influenced editing and camera angles, its atmospheric noir lighting effects, its surrealistic mise en scene, its Kafkaesque paranoia and philosophical themes, and the incredibly convincing performance given by Warren Beatty in the title role. There isn't a dull shot or moment in the entire film, and some of its images and visual conceits (the automobile junk yard as existential metaphor, for instance) are breathtaking. That this artistically ambitious and ambiguous film ever got made and theatrically released in 1965 is a small miracle. Perhaps I'll think differently after the initial glow has worn off and I have a chance for a second viewing, but right now I'd rank Arthur Penn's Mickey One with such all time great thrillers as The Third Man and Touch of Evil.

Mickey One...Audience ZeroReviewed bymoonspinner55Vote: 5/10

At its core, this heavily symbolic and somewhat hypothetical drama from Arthur Penn concerns a nightclub entertainer escaping his own existence after its been implied his gambling debts have put him in hot water with crime bosses; believing himself to be "guilty of not being innocent", he changes his identity to Mickey One, finds a different agent, and attempts a new start (of sorts). Although it isn't imperative to the film that Warren Beatty be convincing as a piano-playing singer-comedian (the underbelly of downtown club life being only artistic window-dressing for the filmmakers), Beatty doesn't have the rumpled panache needed to bring out the background of this character. Beatty's vacant, pretty stare, his nervous and shy mannerisms, and his imploding bad temperament may indeed be good equipment for the role of a new-fangled rebel escaping the unseen, but we are never given the chance to connect with this man. With overtures to Kafka, of all things, Penn and screenwriter Alan M. Surgal probably wanted their film to be very edgy and modern, yet the script does little but regurgitate all the same stuff: glamorous narcissism, apathy, urban decay. Ostensibly a good-looking picture, with its mazes of entrances and exits, it is one which fails to capture the seedy world of low-life show-biz (imagine this thing ten years later, with Bob Fosse directing). Of course, the club milieu is strictly circumstantial, and the highs and lows therein are completely irrelevant, but an absorbing scenario might have been a good place to start. Beatty, ducking the camera and peering out at us over his shoulder, does suggest a complicated young artist whose been flailing away, yet he's been made too shallow here, too much a handsome blank. The complications of Mickey One, alas, are all manufactured. ** from ****

An existential paranoid thrillerReviewed byNeelyOVote: 10/10

I'd heard for years that this was a cult film, but I wasn't prepared for how haunting, disturbing, riveting and utterly brilliant this Arthur Penn concoction would be. Warren Beatty stars as a stand-up comic on the run from the mob; years later, when he may once again rise to fame, he must decide if he has been in hiding because of a genuine threat, or his own paranoia.

The high-contrast b&w cinematography is gorgeous, the score (featuring improvisations by Stan Getz) jarringly matches the new wave-style editing, and Penn keeps the audience on its toes with jump cuts, odd character touches and a general permeating sense of unease and distrust.

Seek this one out if you get the chance to see it on the big screen. And Columbia/Tri-Star, please, release this gem on video!
