What starts out as a pretty standard noir becomes a dark masterwork that uses a basic whodunit to frame a tragic tale of a broken family. The film is populated with fully-fleshed and interesting characters - from the scheming and leaching Monte Baragan to Mildred's materialistic daughter, Veda. The cast is impressive and gives life to what is already a sharply-written script. I went in expecting a typical weepy drama and came out blown away by the freshness and intensity of the film.

An excellent movie. I don't usually like Joan Crawford (out of reverence for Bette Davis), but I liked this wonderful film.

Mildred Pierce review

A conflict arises between Mildred Pierce's (Joan Crawford) and Bert Pierce (Bruce Bennett) and investigation on the murder of Monte Beragon. Mildred also has troubles controlling Veda (Ann Blyth). Interesting for the mystery aspect but tends to have idle lengthy conversations that prolongs the plot. Soundtrack, acting, direction and story were crafty and impressive. The screenplay was great since it originated from a novel – “Personally, Veda's convinced me that alligators have the right idea. They eat their young.” and “Well, it seems to me, if you're buying anything, it should be the best.” By the time one reaches the conclusion one feels a certain relief. Overall, Mildred Pierce is an above average picture that keeps you glued from start to finish.
