89% The Graduate (1967) ""Never trust anyone over 30" is a slogan that could have served the Restoration as well as it does our own time, and Nichols makes the old formula seem as topical as mini-skirts. " ‐ The Nation

87% M*A*S*H (1970) "I looked in vain for pertinence or surprise. Nor was I shocked: without some maturity (if not by the participants, at least by the managers), irreverence is merely brash. " ‐ The Nation

95% Wild Strawberries (1957) "A reviewer must exercise some tact in discussing this picture. It is a work of such high and subtle art that the temptation is to run in with a smother of adjectives and a display of analytical explanation. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Jul 23, 2013
90% Persona (1966) "One is forced to spend much more time in examining these women than in getting to understand them. They are treated as objects not subjects -- an attitude which, whether intentionally or not, is relevant to contemporary corruption. " ‐ The Nation

88% Easy Rider (1969) "Wyatt and Billy are more rigidly conformist, their life more narrowly obsessive than that of any broker's clerk on the nine to five. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Feb 25, 2013
92% All the President's Men (1976) "The effect of All the President's Men is not to make Watergate more real but to make it more remote. " ‐ The Nation

98% Annie Hall (1977) "Annie Hall, for all its vagaries, is a funny, often touching, sometimes astute picture. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Feb 12, 2013
95% One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) "I enjoyed the picture because it is an action romance, worked out in wonderfully inventive detail and presented with mesmeric immediacy by one of the screen's most resourceful directors. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Feb 12, 2013
90% Midnight Cowboy (1969) "The attempt to wring tender laughter from such a topic strikes me as being itself a kind of commercialized vice. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Feb 12, 2013
91% Network (1976) "There is plenty wrong with television, plenty to satirize. But Network prudently misses the point, dishing up an outrageous razzle-dazzle stew that will ruffle no network feathers and delight a popular audience. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Feb 11, 2013
94% The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) "The Bridge on the River Kwai amused and excited me. " ‐ The Nation

88% Gandhi (1982) "Richard Attenborough's Gandhi is every bit as sumptuous as everyone had expected. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Feb 11, 2013
78% Gentleman's Agreement (1947) "By dispassionate critical standards, Gentleman's Agreement is not a success. It is a tract rather than a play and it has the crusader's shortcomings. " ‐ The New Republic
Posted Feb 6, 2013
No Score Yet That Hagen Girl (1947) "The most painful part of this very painful picture is the contrast it insists on between Miss Temple and the rest of the cast. " ‐ The New Republic
Posted Jan 23, 2013
100% All About Eve (1950) "What makes the picture seem so good (what makes it eminently worth seeing) is the satirical touches in its detail and the performance of Bette Davis. " ‐ The New Republic
Posted Jan 23, 2013
94% Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) "All in all, it is an outrageously successful, what will be called a "classic," compilation of nonsense, largely derived but thoroughly reconditioned. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Jan 14, 2013
97% Jaws (1975) "Basically, Jaws is an excellent routine movie, the sort normally made on a moderate budget and aimed at the neighborhood houses. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Oct 9, 2012
91% The Shining (1980) "As in 2001, Kubrick likes ghost stories more than I do. And he gives me enough else, in the way of acting and bizarrely beautiful surroundings, to keep me happy. " ‐ The Nation
Posted Oct 9, 2012
96% Psycho (1960) "It is incumbent on us to inspect the real horrors of our time, but we don't have to traffic with Hitchcock's giggling obscenities. " ‐ The Nation
