No Score Yet Mary, Mary (1963) "There must be some simple explanation of why Miss Kerr's play has run for so long, but I don't get it from this movie, which is two hours of conversational fuzz. " ‐ New York Times

60% Conspiracy of Hearts (1960) "The pathos of little children caught in the agony of war is always a solid staple of sentiment on the screen. It has been well and touchingly presented in any number of films. And it is offered again with deep compassion in "Conspiracy of Hearts" ... " ‐ New York Times

Posted Oct 21, 2015
80% Dance, Girl, Dance (1940) "Dance, Girl, Dance is just a cliché-ridden, garbled repetition of the story of the aches and pains in a dancer's rise to fame and fortune. " ‐ New York Times

64% The Pumpkin Eater (1964) "It might make for valid drama if Mr. Pinter had done a half‐way job of establishing this insecure woman on firm psychological ground. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Jul 29, 2015
80% I'll See You In My Dreams (2007) "If the names of Gus Kahn and Danny Thomas are vague or unfamiliar to you now, just keep your ear close to the sidewalk; you'll be hearing a lot of them soon. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 13, 2015
86% Accident (1967) "The whole thing is such a teapot tempest, and it is so assiduously underplayed that it is neither strong drama nor stinging satire. It is just a sad little story of a wistful don. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Aug 26, 2014
43% Sodom and Gomorrah (1963) "It is an obvious but feeble imitation of "The Ten Commandments" of Cecil B. de Mille, and it is much more concerned with salt-mining than it is with debauchery or lust. " ‐ New York Times

3.5/5 100% En Lektion i Kärlek (A Lesson in Love) (1954) "Even though it came early in the snowballing Bergman career, it reveals certain sparkling characteristics that have been striking in Mr. Bergman's themes and style. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 23, 2013
2/5 83% An American Romance (1944) "Mr. Vidor made a great big color picture with an abundance of vivid American scenes but with a story so banal and tedious that the whole film seems one massive platitude. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 1, 2013
2/5 33% A Royal Scandal (1945) "A Royal Scandal, for all Miss Bankhead's presence, is an oddly dull and generally witless show. " ‐ New York Times
Posted May 8, 2013
1.5/5 No Score Yet 40 Pounds of Trouble (1963) "The trouble with 40 Pounds of Trouble is that it is just too hackneyed and dull. " ‐ New York Times
Posted May 6, 2013

Posted Mar 27, 2012
3/5 100% The Cool World (1964) "As we've come to expect of Miss Clarke's pictures, it is boldly and studiously styled as a literal documentation of a particular social scene, and its attack is more that of the reporter than of the interested teller of a tale. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 27, 2012
2/5 93% The Connection (2007) "There is little about it to warrant the clamorous interest of the average moviegoer or to distinguish it as a significant piece of cinematic art. " ‐ New York Times
