Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 No Score Yet Sambizanga (1973) Let's hope that this impressive new director makes many sequels to her first feature film. ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 4, 2011
4/5 100% David Holzman's Diary (1967) Time has served it very well. ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 16, 2007
4/5 100% Early Spring (Soshun) (1974) With subtle precision, Ozu shows how personal and national anxieties seep through infinite lives. Yet this impeccably acted movie is far from depressing, since the filmmaker stresses that mistakes aren't irreversible. ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 20, 2007
4/5 100% Late Autumn (Akibiyori) (1973) The struggles between the generations pre-date the clashes of the late nineteen-sixties. However, Ozu's extraordinary sensitivity makes them deeply dramatic, all the more so because these gentle, reflective persons seem to have led unruffled lives. ‐ New York Times

2/5 83% Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) The movie's main problem is that the protagonist -- the dead head -- is a bore. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
3.5/5 88% The Iceman Cometh (1973) The play is an inescapably great experience, and that fact isn't muffled by this film. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
45% The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) If you enjoyed the early Bond films as much as I did, you'd better skip this one. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
96% The Mother and the Whore (La Maman et la putain) (1973) It's tempting to mail the director a list of complaints as long as his movie. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
4/5 95% A Woman Under the Influence (1975) The most frightening scenes are extremely compelling, and this is a thoughtful film that does prompt serious discussion. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
2.5/5 73% Conrack (1974) Despite Mr. Voight's skill, the teacher's character never jells. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
1.5/5 60% Stereo (1969) ...doors that won't open, enigmatic card games, long empty corridors and sex on an examination table make it all quite old fashioned, and the images are as formless as scrambled eggs. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
1.5/5 58% The Terminal Man (1974) While this movie seems unsalvageable, it might have had some punch if we'd been told more about the Segal character's past, before his operation. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
5/5 86% Stavisky... (1974) A spell-casting mood piece that is also factually frustrating. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
2/5 86% Die Bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant (The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant) (1972) Even those who love pain will be frustrated by The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
3.5/5 95% Céline et Julie Vont en Bateau (Celine and Julie Go Boating) (1974) When this movie sags, it becomes a series of skits, but the best parts do achieve the spontaneity and impudent freshness that this director relishes. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
35% Earthquake (1974) For those who have a soft spot for calamity pictures, there's a sense of ritual cleansing afterward. And for some reason, it also made me hungry. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
4/5 100% Partner (1968) The specific meaning of many of the scenes is obscure, but the total effect is that of youthful explosion of movie talent. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
1.5/5 68% Il portiere di notte (The Night Porter) (1974) The movie's visual virtues are negated by infinite absurdities -- particularly by the sentimentality with which the director views this luckless couple. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
2.5/5 63% Shampoo (1975) Disappointment comes in all weights and flavors, but the brand that's generated by Hal Ashby's Shampoo is a bit harder to swallow than some. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
1.5/5 81% The Longest Yard (1974) Though The Yard is a terrible picture, I'll admit to having unwillingly enjoyed some of the football practice and parts of the final game -- even though it's much too long. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
1.5/5 93% Händler der vier Jahreszeiten (The Merchant of Four Seasons) (1971) This soggy picture allows the disintegration of a human being to be almost as dull as the way he earns his living -- and that is appalling. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
2/5 64% The Odessa File (1974) The film makes its points methodically, almost academically. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 9, 2005
3/5 91% The Sugarland Express (1974) The movie has a casual craziness that seems especially native. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
4.5/5 100% The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974) It's the only action picture I've seen this year that has a rousing plot. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
2.5/5 88% Harry and Tonto (1974) The muted style robs the picture of the liberating point it's meant to make: that imaginative energy transcends the generations. ‐ New York Times
Posted May 21, 2003
3/5 98% The Conversation (1974) Haunting and bothersome.‐ New York Times
