100% The Old Dark House (1932) The film is shot through in almost every scene by a wholly individual sense of comic timing and bizarre juxtaposition. - Monthly Film Bulletin EDIT

94% The Tree of Wooden Clogs (L'albero degli Zoccoli) (1979) The harmonious unity of Ermanno Olmi's film, despite one or two discordant notes, stems largely from the director's circumspect approach to all its elements. The parts are justly proportioned and nothing is allowed to command undue attention. - Monthly Film Bulletin EDIT

97% The Big Sleep (1946) The plethora of killings now seems on the whole less horrific than it once did, while the film's tone of escalating absurdity in a genuinely dark world grows if anything even more sprightly as the years go by. - Monthly Film Bulletin EDIT
