T-Meter Title | Year
93% Camille (1936) In Camille, Cukor's direction led Garbo deeper into the heart of the situations than ever before, and into the greatest triumph of her career. - Sight and Sound EDIT

98% Sweet Smell of Success (1957) It is beautifully shot in gleaming black and white (James Wong Howe) and written in a lucid, over-exposed one o'clock in the morning style by Clifford Odets and Ernest Lehman. - Sight and Sound EDIT

No Score Yet The Strange One (1957) It must be admitted that while the events are happening they are often very compelling - and this in spite of the clumsy shape of the narrative. - Sight and Sound EDIT

67% The Rose Tattoo (1955) Neither in writing or performance is [Burt Lancaster's] character anything more than a static prototype. - Sight and Sound EDIT

No Score Yet My Sister Eileen (1955) Janet Leigh makes an unaffected Eileen, but Jack Lemmon can find little to do with his improbable role of confidence restorer to a loveless lady writer. - Sight and Sound EDIT

89% Rocco and His Brothers (Rocco e i suoi fratelli) (1961) [Rocco] is a work which shows Visconti addicted both to romantic melodrama and to contemporary social drama. It is through his own prodigious conviction and authority that these elements can be reconciled without arousing a fatal mistrust. - Sight and Sound EDIT

100% Shadows (1959) Shadows is not a film in which issues need to be resolved. It captures the tensions of its society on a vividly expressive level, and that is its strength. - Sight and Sound EDIT

96% Diabolique (Les Diaboliques) (1955) Rarely if ever has such a wallow in the sickeningly macabre been passed for distribution in this country. - Sight and Sound EDIT
