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

89% 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

93% 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
98% 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
93% 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
98% 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
92% 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
