3.5/5 93% Jeremiah Johnson (1972) " There are momoments of great beauty and terror and deeply earned pathos. There are as well such not-so-incidental pleasures as John Rubinstein's lovely and serviceable musical score, and a cast of excellent supporting actors." — New York Times

3/5 66% Live and Let Die (1973) " Live and Let Die has been especially well photographed and edited, and it makes clever and extensive use of its good title song, by Paul and Linda McCartney." — New York Times

2/5 70% Johnny Got His Gun (1971) " Although Mr. Trumbo is primarily a screenwriter, screenwriting is only the worst of the film's several failures." — New York Times

Posted Feb 19, 2005
2/5 —— Terra em Transe (Anguished Land)(Land Entranced) (1967) " I have now seen enough of Rocha's work to know that I dislike it for its own sake, and not for the unfamiliarity of its locale and people or for the ritual obsessiveness of its themes." — New York Times
Posted Jan 15, 2005
95% American Graffiti (1973) " It is a very good movie, funny, tough, unsentimental." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
3/5 95% Dirty Harry (1971) " What makes Dirty Harry worth watching no matter how dumb the story, is Siegel's superb sense of the city, not as a place of moods but as a theater for action." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
98% The French Connection (1971) " It moves at magnificent speed, and exhausts itself in movement." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
78% Two Mules For Sister Sara (1970) New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
96% Klute (1971) " Pakula, when he is not indulging in subjective camera, strives to give his film the look of structural geometry, but despite the sharp edges and dramatic spaces and cinema presence out of Citizen Kane, it all suggests a tepid, rather tasteless mush." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
88% Bang The Drum Slowly (1973) " It is one of those rare instances in which close adaptation of a good book has resulted in possibly an even better movie." — New York Times

100% Sansho the Bailiff (1954) New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
—— Payday (1973) New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
2.5/5 90% M*A*S*H (1970) " Although it is impudent, bold, and often very funny, it lacks the sense of order (even in the midst of disorder) that seems the special province of successful comedy." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
2/5 71% The King of Marvin Gardens (1972) " Rafelson's kind of poetic realism, an accuracy in the treatment of unexpected settings, looked like quality to some in Five Easy Pieces two years back. Now it looks like the most pretentious of tired clichés." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
—— Szerelem (Love) (1971) New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
5/5 100% Tokyo Story (Tôkyô monogatari) (1953) " Luminous in its freedom from the sentimentality or the satire that so often obscure an artist's vision of normal living." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
78% Hi, Mom! (1970) New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
2/5 83% Play Misty for Me (1971) " I think the fault lies with Clint Eastwood the director, who has made too many easy decisions about events, about the management of atmosphere, about the treatment of performances." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
4.5/5 93% The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970) " Peckinpah's gentlest, boldest, and perhaps most likable film to date." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
3.5/5 97% Cabaret (1972) " Everybody in Cabaret is very fine, and meticulously chosen for type, down to the last weary transvestite and to the least of the bland, blond open-faced Nazis in the background." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
5/5 91% Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here (1969) " Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here is another one of the best American movies, and in its own way, equally idiomatic, evocative, and resourceful [as Force of Evil]." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003

Posted May 21, 2003
86% Five Easy Pieces (1970) " Rafelson is expert at supporting this movement, and the film proceeds from scene to scene with a quiet competent modernism that bespeaks quality, but that more often begs than provides expression." — New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
100% Que la Bête Meure (This Man Must Die) (Killer!) (1969) New York Times
