T-Meter Title | Year
95% The Night of the Hunter (1955) The Night of the Hunter doesn't altogether, as they say, "come off," but it is a film of extremely individual flavour, and its daring, its indifference to convention, make it uniquely surprising for a Hollywood production today. - Sight and Sound EDIT

No Score Yet The Deep Blue Sea (1955) Anatole Litvak brings a rather heavy slickness to it, using the Cinemascope frame with ingenuity, unsuitable though it is to the subject; and the lack of personal style is even more strongly felt. The drama does not seem to be happening anywhere. - Sight and Sound EDIT
