96% The Big Sleep (1946) " The Big Sleep is wakeful fare for folks who don't care what is going on, or why, so long as the talk is hard and the action harder." — TIME Magazine

77% For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943) " The rhythm of this film, in fact, is the most defective I have ever seen in a superproduction." — The Nation

100% The Lost Weekend (1945) " While you watch it, it entirely holds you." — The Nation
Posted Sep 14, 2012
95% Hail the Conquering Hero (1944) " It is a bewilderingly skillful picture, and the skill is used no more brilliantly to tell the story than to cover up the story's weaknesses and those of its author, Preston Sturges." — The Nation
Posted Sep 14, 2012
79% Crossfire (1947) " Crossfire is an unusually good and honest movie and may -- I hope, will - prove a very useful one." — The Nation
Posted Sep 14, 2012
97% The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) " The movie has plenty of faults, and the worst of them are painfully exasperating; yet this is one of the very few American studio-made movies in years that seem to me profoundly pleasing, moving, and encouraging. " — The Nation
Posted Sep 14, 2012
100% The Gold Rush (1925) " The result is a sight for sore eyes, for old-style Chaplin fans and novitiates alike." — TIME Magazine
Posted Sep 14, 2012
94% It's a Wonderful Life (1946) " I wasn't able to get reasonably straight about it for quite a while. I still think it has a good deal of charm and quality, enough natural talent involved in it to make ten pictures ten times as good, and terrific vitality or, rather, vigor." — The Nation
Posted Aug 31, 2012
100% National Velvet (1944) " I think that [Elizabeth Taylor] and the picture are wonderful." — The Nation
Posted Aug 31, 2012
86% The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1944) " I suspect that Sturges feels that conscience and comedy are incompatible. It would be hard for a man of talent to make a more self-destructive mistake." — The Nation
Posted Aug 30, 2012
100% The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) " This is one of the most visually alive and beautiful movies I have ever seen; there is a wonderful flow of fresh air, light, vigor, and liberty through every shot." — The Nation
Posted Aug 30, 2012
100% Henry V (The Chronicle History of King Henry the Fift with His Battell Fought at Agincourt in France (1946) " The movies have produced one of their rare great works of art." — TIME Magazine
Posted Aug 29, 2012
96% Double Indemnity (1944) " The picture never fully takes hold of its opportunities, such as they are, perhaps because those opportunities are appreciated chiefly as surfaces and atmospheres and as very tellable trash." — The Nation
