Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
The Cobweb (1955)
"With its usual twist, it's surprising that The Cobweb hasn't become a cult classic. This '50's studio picture combines the ever popular Hollywood topic of mental illness with interior decorating."
Real Women Have Curves (2002)
"One of the best things about "Real Women" is exactly that %u2013 the real sized women (and men) who fill out this endearing coming-of-age story with a physical and emotional robustness that puts the Hollywood size-three's to shame. "
Murmur of the Heart (1971)
"A classic. Malle's homage to teenage love."
Pat and Mike (1952)
"Hepburn and Tracy at their romantic-antagonistic best!"
What the Bleep Do We Know!? (2004)
"Overall the talking heads do a great job - as in "How Quantum Physics Can Change YOUR Life!" The same can't be said for the storyline, which leaves much to be desired."
It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
"If you don't cry at this Capra classic, you probably don't have tear ducts...."
Harold and Maude (1971)
"Understatedly hilarious. Cort and Gordon are a truly unique pairing. A must see."
Capturing the Friedmans (2003)
"Some would say that it's 'Schadenfreude,' a fascination with disaster, that keeps us watching...But this film provides rare insight into the failure of a American family..."
Southern Comfort (2001)
"Films like Southern Comfort do what even legislation cannot: they seep into our consciousness, and work their way into our collective growth until the establishment and mainstream society finally relent and expand their viewpoint of what constitutes human"
"What emerges is an unsettling picture of childhood innocence combined with indoctrinated prejudice. Promises is a compelling piece that demonstrates just how well children can be trained to live out and carry on their parents' anguish."
Sweet Smell of Success (1957)
"An ambitious and self serving group bent on their own self survival make for a crisp script. Lancaster at his larger than life best... A classic."
All My Loved Ones (2000)
"Jirí Hubac's script is a gem. His characters are engaging, intimate and the dialogue is realistic and greatly moving. The scope of the Silberstein family is large and we grow attached to their lives, full of strength, warmth and vitality.."
Don't Look Now (1973)
"unending suspense -- intelligent and crisp"
Crossing Delancey (1988)
"A well directed and sensitive portrayal of match-making in the 20th century"
The Komediant (2000)
"... a light, yet engrossing piece. Lux, now in her eighties, does a great combination act as narrator, Jewish grandmother and subject - taking us through a film that is part biography, part entertainment and part history."
In Like Flint (1967)
"smart and needle sharp as only a meta-hip '60's James Coburn could have made it"
Aimée & Jaguar (2000)
"...a rich melange of tumultous and sensual events. The story, acting, direction, set design and costuming fluidly combine to give a passionate portrait of living and loving on the edge of despair in a place and time where there was no tomorrow."
"It is the quintessential version of the story of the classic mythic hero, one who begins as underdog without a chance, and faces insurmountable challenges and hurdles to become a champion, doing it all with grace, grit and style."
