2.5/4 43% Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1970) [A] quickie follow-up that vainly tries to imitate the look of the original on an obviously limited budget, and for the most part, eschews the philosophical, social, and racial subtext of the first film in favor of straightforward shoot-em-up.‐ TV Guide

2/4 36% Battle For The Planet Of The Apes (1973) Aside from Severn Darden, who relishes his lip-smacking heavy character, the cast seems disinterested; even series stalwart Roddy McDowall looks bored.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 100% Lola (1981) It's a political fairy tale about duplicity and hypocrisy in which everything, including ethics and human flesh, is for sale, and self-esteem and worth is measured only in terms of money.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 100% The Young One (1960) Zachary Scott and Bernie Hamilton star as deadly adversaries on an island hell in Luis Bunuel's The Young One, a rarely shown English-language gem about racism and pedophilia.‐ TV Guide

4/4 88% Le Fantôme de la Liberté (The Phantom of Liberty) (The Specter of Freedom) (1974) An uproarious summary of Luis Bunuel's surrealistic concerns in a collection of anecdotes starring Jean-Claude Brialy, Michel Piccoli, and Monica Vitti.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 71% Husbands (1970) Most of Cassavetes's cinema verite films as a director are invariably accused (and with some justification) of being rambling, self-indulgent, and unfocused, but it is precisely those elements that make his best work so affecting and memorable.‐ TV Guide

4.5/5 97% Yojimbo (1961) The explosive outbursts of violence in Yojimbo are superbly choreographed, with Kurosawa's customary use of a telephoto lens creating a hallucinatory feeling.‐ TV Guide
