Too Late for Tears (1949)

"Despite an involved plot and an occasional overabundance of palaver, not all of which is bright, this yarn about a cash-hungry dame who doesn't let men or conscience stand in her way, is an adult and generally suspenseful adventure." ‐New York Times

Wild River (1960)

"Both sections of the flavorful, vernacular-filled screen play have been given professional treatment." ‐New York Times

Cluny Brown (1946)

"Let is be noted at the outset that Ernst Lubitsch has come up with a delectable and sprightly lampoon in Cluny Brown." ‐New York Times

Hickey & Boggs (2000)

""Hickey and Boggs" is not involved in a story or with characters really worthy of a full theatrical treatment." ‐New York Times
Posted May 21, 2014

Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962)

"A serious incisive drama that pulls no punches in its low-keyed exposure of its pitiable has been hero and the sleazy, harried sidekicks who share his sweat-stained and blood-stained world." ‐New York Times

Kvinnodröm (Dreams) (Journey Into Autumn) (1955)

"It is not a major concept he is dramatizing, and it lacks the hallmarks of imagination, expressive symbolism and poetic nuances of some of the truly memorable films that followed Dreams." ‐New York Times

För Att Inte Tala Om Alla Dessa Kvinnor (All These Women) (Now About These Women) (1964)

"Ingmar Bergman, who has tackled religion, sin, sex, music and muddled mores in elliptical but artistically distinguished film style, appears to be confused by comedy and color." ‐New York Times

Toute Une Vie (And Now My Love) (1974)

"Mr. Lelouch, of course, gives amour its due in And Now My Love, but this is not nearly so impressive as his perceptive, often touching portraits of three eras and their principals." ‐New York Times

Black Girl (La noire de...) (1966)

"Mr. Sembène makes his point neatly and dramatically." ‐New York Times

Black God, White Devil (Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol) (1964)

Cry of the City (1948)

"Cry of the City may be strident at times but its message, story and players are thoroughly effective." ‐New York Times

A Girl in Every Port (1952)

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)

"Mr. Disney, abetted by his staff, such perfect narrators as Bing Crosby and Basil Rathbone, and a pair of durable literary works, has fashioned a conclave of cartoon creatures, which... have the winsome qualities and charm of Mickey Mouse, Dumbo, et al." ‐New York Times

The Silver Chalice (1954)

"Though it is lavish and sweeping in execution, The Silver Chalice, for all of its august and religious aspects, is not an imposing offering." ‐New York Times
Posted Oct 31, 2006

Riot in Cell Block 11 (1954)

"The grim business of melodrama behind prison walls, so often depicted in standard, banal fashion in films, is given both tension and dignity in Riot in Cell Block 11." ‐New York Times

The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953)

"Despite more than a suspicion of palaver, it generates a fair portion of interest and climactic excitement ..." ‐New York Times

Road House (1948)

"List first the fact that Widmark, though he stands in danger of being typed as the screen's prime psychotic, does an excellent job (complete with chilling laughter)." ‐New York Times

Son of Dracula (1943)

"Despite all the accepted props, from the lonely Southern plantation set in a miasmic bog to the squeaking bats and creaking coffins, this thriller is a pretty pallid offering." ‐New York Times
Posted Aug 8, 2006

Horror of Dracula (1958)

"Perhaps the constant hunt for hemoglobin is slowing our villain down, for this time there are strong indications that the once gory plot is showing definite signs of anemia." ‐New York Times

The Wrong Man (1956)

"Frighteningly authentic, the story generates only a modicum of drama." ‐New York Times

Saint Joan (1957)

"Mr. Preminger, his scenarist and his cast, who obviously were serious in tackling an important drama, have only fashioned a series of dissertations on an important theme." ‐New York Times

Rio Bravo (1959)

"Despite its slickness, virility, occasional humor and, if it may be repeated, authentic professional approach, it is well-made but awfully familiar fare." ‐New York Times

Phase IV (1974)

"A concept and a script that is initially spellbinding but then quickly turns into mystifying vacillations between fact and largely unconvincing fiction." ‐New York Times

2.5/5 88%

Signs of Life (1968)

"As a writer-director in his feature film effort, Mr. Herzog has failed to make his harried hero's case or his parable believable. Otherwise, his Signs of Life provides vivid signs of considerable talent and promise." ‐New York Times

The Slender Thread (1965)

Posted May 10, 2005

Mouchette (1967)

"In artistically pointing up their lack of understanding and affection for Mouchette, Mr. Bresson never fully lets a viewer in on details that would help him appreciate them, too." ‐New York Times

Simón del desierto (Simon of the Desert) (1965)

"Mr. Bunuel's powerful, funny, startling but inconclusive commentary on man's frailties." ‐New York Times
Posted May 10, 2005

Senso (1954)

"It is an obvious, rudimentary operatic approach to amour and an illustration of history that is likely to be fuzzy to anyone but a student of Garibaldi's 1866 campaign in and around Venice and Verona." ‐New York Times

The Immortal Story (1968)

"Its sad and bittersweet effects are slowly achieved in brooding, garrulous, overly introspective style, except by Jeanne Moreau." ‐New York Times

Onibaba (1965)

"Although his artistic integrity remains untarnished, his driven rustic principals are exotic, sometimes grotesque figures out of medieval Japan, to whom a Westerner finds it hard to relate." ‐New York Times

Le Feu follet (A Time to Live and a Time to Die) (The Fire Within) (1963)

Sex and the Single Girl (1964)

"Spain never looked lovelier, but the banal romances of the lightweight principals in this retooled vehicle make the trip wholly unnecessary." ‐New York Times

A Touch of Zen (1969)

"[King Hu] has not ignored traditional mayhem here, but he has demonstrated that pictorial artistry, Zen mysticism and the stylized martial arts, can make a fascinating mix." ‐New York Times

Hellfighters (1968)

"Our indestructible Duke again has made actionful, if not stirringly meaningful, child's play of exotic disasters." ‐New York Times

Hatari! (1962)

"Perhaps the accent on the trapping of free-roaming critters for use in zoos is a mite too heavy, but this aspect of African business rates the attention it receives here." ‐New York Times

Thriller - A Cruel Picture (Thriller - en grym film) (Hooker's Revenge) (They Call Her One Eye) (1974)

Six in Paris (Paris vu par...) (1969)

"If the six different locales are a standard Cook's Tour of the capital, most of the principals, however fleetingly, make Parisians, not Paris, diverting, if not memorable." ‐New York Times
