Movie Reviews Only

T-Meter Title | Year
46% La Luna (1979) Ravishing to look at, but the movie's real curiosity is the way it fails to reverse Bertolucci's usual preoccupations. - Time Out EDIT

63% Moonraker (1979) The space-age plot is spread dangerously thin, the fights all tend to slapstick, and the wanton destruction has become rather too predictable. But it's held together by likeable performances. - Time Out EDIT

100% The Buddy Holly Story (1978) Fine biopic which showcases a brilliant performance by Busey as Holly, and conveys a real, raw feeling for the music. - Time Out EDIT

90% National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) An unashamed sense of its own fantasy is coupled with classically mounted slapstick; nostalgia mixes with cynicism in seductive proportions; and John Belushi's central performance as brain-damaged slob-cum-Thief of Baghdad is wonderful. - Time Out EDIT

98% Sweet Smell of Success (1957) The screen was rarely so dark or cruel. - Time Out EDIT

97% Tristana (1970) Rey is brilliant as the mephistophelean, anti-clerical Socialist, dandy and outmoded master of social graces: father, lover and husband all in one. - Time Out EDIT

94% Being There (1979) What emerges in the end is a strange ambiguity of attitude to the American political system and a hollow humour about cultural values. The cinema of cynicism, really. - Time Out EDIT

67% A Very Curious Girl (La fiancée du pirate) (1969) Greed, malice and bigotry are satirised with merciless, atheistic scorn. - Time Out EDIT

56% Old Boyfriends (1979) The failure owes something to slack direction, and probably more to the misogyny of Paul and Leonard Schrader's script, which contrives a distinctly reactionary mix of sentiment, morality, and melodrama. - Time Out EDIT

86% Wise Blood (1979) This adaptation of Flannery O'Connor's novel is John Huston's best film for many years. - Time Out EDIT

5/5 94% The Deer Hunter (1978) This is probably one of the few great films of the Seventies. - Time Out EDIT
