  • A Woman's Face, 1941 - ★★★★½

    Basically split into two halves: the first gives us a Joan Crawford who is a nasty, ugly criminal who almost shoots her “friends” because they put a mirror up in the house. She’s lived a life of shame and bitterness due to a large scar on the right side of her face. The second half gives us a Joan Crawford who is trying to figure out a new life after a surgeon, played by Melvyn Douglas, fixes her facial scar. Now, far from the monster that children used run away from, she is beautiful. It’s up to her what she does with this new gift.

    Does the new exterior stand any chance of changing the monster within? Melvyn Douglas’s surgeon fears not. He tells her he fears he has created his own Frankenstein’s monster— that her newfound beauty will allow her do even more evil things than before. 

    A Woman’s Face is a thoughtful, surprisingly thrilling look at evil and redemption. A great vehicle for Joan Crawford.

  • George Cukor’s Women
    (”A Woman's Face” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    A ranking of the films that make up The Criterion Channel collection, George Cukor’s Women.

    From the Channel’s description: One of studio-era Hollywood’s preeminent craftsmen, George Cukor excelled at nuanced portrayals of richly realized women, bringing a keen understanding of their interrelationships and inner lives to a host of classic comedies, melodramas, and thrillers. From his early collaborations with Constance Bennett to his work with Ingrid Bergman, Rosalind Russell, Katharine Hepburn, and Jean Harlow, Cukor guided many of the era’s greatest actresses to deliver some of their most indelible performances under his ever-elegant direction. Whether it’s Joan Crawford as a twisted blackmailer in the plushly stylized noir A WOMAN’S FACE, the divine Greta Garbo as a doomed courtesan in CAMILLE, or a powerhouse ensemble of Hollywood queen bees out-quipping one another in the delightfully acerbic diva-fest THE WOMEN, Cukor’s films feature some of the most spirited, sophisticated, and memorable leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden age.

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
