Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo detstvo) (1962) While the emotional weight of Ivan is clear from the first frames -- Tarkovsky doesn't stray from making us feel the pain of Ivan's world -- there is that sense of music the director is so intent on conveying.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% The Mirror (1975) No tidy resolutions, no easy steps from here to there. But what The Mirror lacks in simple logic it makes up for in satisfying emotions.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Scarface (1932) Scarface is one of best of the early gangster movies; its wit and building velocity speeds it past Little Caesar and keeps pace with Public Enemy.‐ Los Angeles Times

98% The Rules of the Game (La règle du jeu) (1939) On the surface, a lace of flirtations, insinuations and rejections compose the basic plotting. But Renoir uses flashes of accelerating drama to amplify his bigger points.‐ Los Angeles Times

98% King Kong (1933) The story, like Frankenstein and Dracula, has taken on the significance of a modern folk tale, layered with obvious moralizing and as familiar as personal history.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/5 100% Woman in the Dunes (Suna no Onna) (1964) Teshigahara's direction and Segawa's camera-work often render the mundane startling and new, a claim that only good films can make.‐ Los Angeles Times

3/5 92% The Duellists (1977) Scott gets strong performances from his supporting cast (Quick is sensual and effective) and is able to salvage the movie through the alchemy of the striking visuals.‐ Los Angeles Times
