T-Meter Title | Year
91% Cat People (1942) A weird little chiller called Cat People... is calculated to frighten you out of your wits and make you think twice before trusting anyone who arouses a feline's instinctive dislike. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

98% Detour (1945) Tom Neal does extremely well in the long, difficult role of the petrified pianist whose misadventures are told in flashback; while Ann Savage all but blisters the screen with her venoemous, snarling performance as the vicious Vera. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

81% The Man With the Golden Arm (1955) This dramatization of Nelson Algren's novel provides a sometimes revolting, sometimes dreary excursion into the lives of a full set of American lower-depths characters. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

80% First Comes Courage (1943) [The stars] play with a nice sincerity and Dorothy Arzner has given them and the slightly frayed material the benefit of her sound directional talent. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

81% Cabin in the Sky (1943) The chief fault, it seems to us, is the unimaginative direction of Vincente Minnelli who never takes full advantage of the motion picture medium's facilities for creating fantasy... If Minnelli has fumbled his opportunities, Miss Waters has not. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

98% Pather Panchali (1955) Despite the thousands of miles which divide us from this little family in a far off speck of village, there is a strange community of spirit and understanding. And for this, Roy may take credit. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

94% Daughter of Shanghai (1937) [Anna May Wong] moves with cool detachment and grace through this wild yarn of smugglers, thinking her own thoughts, we suspect, and doing what the can to lend Interest to a film that is sillier than it is exciting. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

97% A Night at the Opera (1935) As usual when the Marx Brothers are on hand, plot gives place to panic and It's only a question of picking one's pet scenes and taking care not to laugh oneself to death right there in the theatre. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

90% Gilda (1946) Not since the archaic days of Theda Bara and her brazen ilk has sex appeal been set forth in so rampant a fashion on the screen. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

97% Double Indemnity (1944) Brilliantly and toughly directed by Billy Wilder. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

97% Home of the Brave (1949) Everything about Home of the Brave is a daring departure from sleek, cut-to-measure Hollywood standards and conventions. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT
