No Score Yet Colorado Territory (1949) "Colorado Territory is closer to the melancholy romantic ballad on an outlaw couple than High Sierra is, but it is also richer in social ironies. " ‐ Parallax View

No Score Yet The Bowery (1933) "Occasionally it seems designed as a weepy vehicle for Jackie Cooper and Wallace Beery, but it's also a delightfully uncouth period piece with much of the rough comedy of earlier Walsh films... " ‐ Parallax View

No Score Yet Me and My Gal (1932) "Me and My Gal is almost a series of parties given in and around a story about a young cop courting a waterfront waitress ... " ‐ Parallax View

81% Furious 7 (2015) "The Cock-eyed World is a plodding, heavyhanded and rather entertaining sequel, with sound, to What Price Glory?. " ‐ Parallax View

94% High Sierra (1941) "... it's often an appealing film and its misfires seem more those of attempted innovation rather than of strained seriousness. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Apr 25, 2015
100% The Roaring Twenties (1939) "While The Roaring Twenties is hardly a definitive history of an era, its chronicle... has a sharp bite socially and more than a touch of tragic vision. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Apr 25, 2015
95% They Drive by Night (1940) "Manpower is a kind of paradox. It is full of relentlessly silly antics, and yet it also has an abundance of Walshian delights. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Apr 25, 2015
100% The Strawberry Blonde (1941) "The Strawberry Blonde is unusually domestic for a Walsh film, and rather sentimental to boot. " ‐ Parallax View

100% Gentleman Jim (1942) "In Gentleman Jim a basic premise of the humor is that a good face-to-face brawl is one of the things that make life worth living. " ‐ Parallax View

No Score Yet El Rio y la Muerte (1955) "...an anti-macho message picture, in which science, culture and education are held up as the remedies to the hatred and machismo... " ‐ Parallax View

100% The Young One (1960) "... crackles with a dark humor and perverse complexity that seem utterly mystifying in a low-budget American film shot on location-or would, if we didn't know something about Luis Buñuel. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Feb 19, 2012
100% The Criminal Life of Archibaldo de la Cruz (Ensayo de un crimen)(Rehearsal for a Crime) (1955) "...the most integrated and impressive of his ostensibly lighthearted films... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Feb 19, 2012
91% Death in the Garden (La Mort en ce jardin) (1956) "...an "ambitious" film whose best moments prove more interesting than its plot-perhaps deliberately so. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Feb 19, 2012
44% La Luna (1979) "Luna is, in a very important sense, a surrealist film which makes use of the stylistic possibilities opened up by Buñuel in the 1960s. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Sep 18, 2010
95% Céline et Julie Vont en Bateau (Celine and Julie Go Boating) (1974) "The plot has its mysteries, but there's also a playful simplicity and modesty of scope that one tends to associate with much shorter films. " ‐ Parallax View
