2/5 —— The President's Lady (1953) " The stars make sincere and energetic but hardly memorable protagonists." — New York Times
Posted Jun 18, 2012
3/5 —— Toby Tyler (1960) " "Toby Tyler" can boast some of the most engaging, unstrained performers in many a Disney moon." — New York Times
Posted Apr 3, 2012
—— The Mountain Road New York Times
Posted Jul 16, 2008
3/5 —— Battle Circus (1953) " An absorbing, often tingling background of a mobile Army surgical hospital at the Korean front. Unfortunately for the general pace and impact, considerable time is allotted to a dawdling and familiar personal drama." — New York Times
Posted Apr 8, 2008
3.5/5 —— My Side of the Mountain (1969) " A slender, honest study of a boy learning to be a man his own way." — New York Times
Posted Oct 30, 2007
3.5/5 —— Trilogy (1995) " It quietly says and conveys more about the human heart and spirit than most of today's free-wheeling blastaways on the screen. Delicately, it towers." — New York Times
Posted Oct 30, 2007
4/5 —— Enjo (1995) " This dignified, purposeful film is often touching as a case history of doomed innocense at bay. But its coils of compromise and corruption are even more credible and haunting." — New York Times

Posted Sep 30, 2006
3/5 90% Magnificent Obsession (1954) " Primary credit for mooring the picture to an earthly and earthy plane belongs to the two stars." — New York Times
Posted Aug 8, 2006
2/5 92% The Big Combo (1955) " A sputtering, misguided antique." — New York Times
Posted Aug 8, 2006
2.5/5 80% Pushover (1954) " Viewed strictly on its own, as it should be, this modest Columbia melodrama is a creditable job for about half the time." — New York Times
Posted Aug 8, 2006
3/5 100% Casque d'Or (1952) " An insular underworld drama of love and revenge vibrates authentically against a vividly etched background of early century Paris." — New York Times

Posted Mar 25, 2006
4/5 100% Touchez Pas au Grisbi (Hands Off the Loot) (1954) " The acting is consistently good. M. Gabin is, of course, an old hand at bland toughness. Rene Dary and Paul Frankeur, as two colleagues; Jeanne Moreau and Dora Doll, as two unlucky ladies, and Lino Ventura and Denise Clair... are sordidly convincing." — New York Times
