T-Meter Title | Year
No Score Yet Valparaiso My Love (1969) A bittersweet hymn to the city of Valparaiso. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet La Musica (1966) Somehow, the film is engrossing even while being static, and what remains, finally, is the question of identity, the uncomfortable feeling that we can never know ourselves or anyone else. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Men and War (1970) Unfortunately, Yammato doesn't have the genius for montage of Eisenstein and the film covers such a vast multitide of events that it is almost impossible to become involved in it. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Marigold Man (1970) If there is a sweetness to despair, then Marigold Man succeeds in accomplishing this difficult feat. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Le Streghe (The Witches) (1967) With few exceptions, all omnibus films, with as many directors as there are stories, have neither style nor substance and are unmemorable. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

77% The Hawks and the Sparrows (Uccellacci e uccellini) (1965) This film has limited appeal for any social class and is therefore almost a total loss. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

57% Sacco and Vanzetti (Sacco e Vanzetti) (1971) This emotionally bludgeoning film should be seen. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

80% La Collectionneuse (1966) When will intellectuals learn that intellectualizing emotions does not engage them? Apparently. Eric Rohmer never will... he has produced one of the most tedious films that I have seen in a long time. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

85% La religieuse (The Nun) (1971) I only hope that the public is entertained and instructed by this beautiful film and not misled by its notoriety. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Right On! (1971) The words are there, but the effect is canned revolution. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

92% Une Femme Douce (A Gentle Woman) (1969) It is not concerned with the moment-to-moment build of linear scenes to an emotional climax or catharsis. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

64% The Bed Sitting Room (1969) The culmination of [Richard Lester's] career to date. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Mexico: The Frozen Revolution (1971) One should see films like The Frozen Revolution and read related books to be reminded that we are all implicated in their misery and are indirect accomplices to the exploitation. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

100% Even Dwarfs Started Small (Auch Zwerge haben klein angefangen) (1970) The product of a rigorous imagination. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Le testament du Docteur Cordelier (Experiment in Evil) (2012) I'd hate to think that this is Renoir's last testament, but Barrault's film legacy is slender and this is merely a cornerstone to the career of a great actor. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

No Score Yet Destroy, She Said (Détruire dit-elle) (1969) It would difficult to find more self-conscious dialogue, and there is so much of it. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2020
No Score Yet Socrate (Socrates) (1971) Rosselini's method is as simple and self-effacing as Socrates' life. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT

100% Tokyo Story (Tôkyô monogatari) (1953) After seeing so many busy, ostentatious films with histrionic, even hysterical, direction, it is a relief to see one that is quiet and composed and tells its story in the most unobtrusive manner possible. - Los Angeles Free Press EDIT
