83% Mr. Arkadin (1962) "Arkadin was, according to one of his business rivals, "a phenomenon of an age of dissolution and crisis." The world of Mr. Arkadin aptly reflects such an age. " ‐ Parallax View

100% Moonlighting (1982) "Moonlighting is the kind of film that had me marveling throughout how anyone ever came up with such a great idea for a movie and, having come up with it, proceeded to realize that idea so completely ... " ‐ Parallax View

93% Young Frankenstein (1974) "... Brooks reveal(s) himself a true obsédé and an honorable heir to the eerily delicate comic-horror tradition of James Whale. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Jun 20, 2015
95% Murder on the Orient Express (1974) "I'm as fond of "production values" as the next fellow, maybe fonder, but I don't wish to be force-fed them by a soulless dietitian who knows what I as a consumer ought to want. " ‐ Parallax View

69% Rancho Deluxe (1975) "I have to be on the side of any film in which Harry Dean Stanton is ordered to "Hoover the Navajos"-i.e., vacuum-clean the Indian rugs. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Apr 25, 2015
No Score Yet The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (1975) " J. Lee Thompson's direction is formless. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 20, 2015
No Score Yet Love Among the Ruins (1975) "Love among the Ruins is an exquisite film, which may imply and in this case does imply that it's quite a nice film. Also an elegant comedy. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 20, 2015
50% The Drowning Pool (1975) "Perhaps the saddest thing about The Drowning Pool is that the incompetence-cum-artiness of Stuart Rosenberg has subverted the talent of the usually redoubtable Gordon Willis. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
No Score Yet W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings (1975) "... it may be time to put in a word or two in behalf of this very easy-to-take summertime divertissement. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
89% The Return of the Pink Panther (1975) "As comedy committed to nothing more argumentative and less indispensable than grace, professionalism, and good fun, the film is certainly welcome. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
75% The Wind and the Lion (1975) "Milius's incredible balancing act might have turned very rancid, yet miraculously his mixture of full-blown romanticism and a genial sense of its absurdity produces a deeply satisfying picture. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
69% The Eiger Sanction (1975) "The Eiger Sanction lacks shape, rhythm, and any notable tone or point-of-view. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
17% Brannigan (1975) "There's some terrific supporting material in that cast list, but everybody onscreen looks, and has excellent reason for feeling, pretty embarrassed about the whole thing. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
97% To Have and Have Not (1944) "While there are moments implying breezy, spontaneous improvisation in virtually all Hawks pictures, no other has such an all-pervasive sense of a floating party... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
77% The French Connection II (1975) "French Connection II, sequel or no, comes off as more of a felt work, and what I make contact with through it is a director. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
91% Professione: reporter (The Passenger) (1975) "I can't say that I liked The Passenger at first-I think I'm coming to that-but I'm impressed, to say the very least. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015

Posted Mar 24, 2013
67% Lifeforce (1985) "Lifeforce is a pretty curious specimen in its own right. Its sci-fi/horror concept is epic in scale and metaphysical reach, but the casting is catchpenny... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 24, 2013
80% Cocoon (1985) "... much of the beauty of Cocoon... has to do with its deft, loving observation of the things of this Earth. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 24, 2013
No Score Yet The Great Scout & Cathouse Thursday (Wildcat) (1976) "As American-International Pictures' first "class" production, the film does not bode well. Any one of AIP's beach party flicks was funnier... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted May 4, 2012
54% Midway (1976) "To make an uninvolving movie out of one of the most decisive battles of the Second World War may seem a dubious challenge, but there's no denying Universal their full credit in meeting it. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted May 4, 2012

Posted May 4, 2012
No Score Yet Shoot (1976) "[Harvey] Hart, for all his egregious handheld-camera zeroings-in and cutaways to available-light overhead shots, has nothing really to tell us about this environment or the people who live there. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted May 4, 2012
68% Logan's Run (1976) "... I found myself reflecting that sf writers can get away with a lot on the printed page that moviemakers just can't. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 10, 2012
No Score Yet That's Entertainment, Part 2 (1976) "... the new compilation lacks focus of any kind beyond a general let's-look-at-more-of-that-old-stuff. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 10, 2012
No Score Yet Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) "... as lowbrow as a dachshund and as funny as a dead rat. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 10, 2012
No Score Yet Salute to the Artist "There's a biographical rightness to Marcello Mastroianni's characterization, in Salut, l'artiste, of a job actor... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 10, 2012
No Score Yet Vincent, Francois, Paul and the Others (1973) "... an abundance of nicely observed moments in the lives of characters who are not at all remarkable played by actors who number among the extraordinary. " ‐ Parallax View

Posted Mar 10, 2012
No Score Yet Dreileben -- Don't Follow Me Around (Dreileben - Komm Mir Nicht Nach) "Each scene, interaction, or apparent digression is worth watching, yet the eschewal of anything resembling a conventional narrative agenda grows more insistent as the movie proceeds. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 10, 2012
No Score Yet Dreileben - Beats Being Dead (Dreileben - Etwas Besseres Als Den Tod) "... to define the incompleteness of "truth," to underscore the impossibility of "seeing" everything, even about ourselves. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 10, 2012
78% The Big Bus (1976) "I'd like to pretend it's a better movie than it is... its failings aren't gross and its modest pleasures are so far superior to the general run this slummy summer season that I feel very kindly toward it. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Feb 19, 2012
No Score Yet Vigilante Force (1976) "... a film of such consuming sleaziness of motivation and rationale that the feeblest gestures toward credibility and mere continuity are bypassed ... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011
0% Gator (1976) "Good-ol'-boy humor is my least favorite form of masculine love-antagonism in the cinema, but even a generous-minded peckerwood ought to weary rapidly of the snorting, yokking, hooting interplay... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011
63% The Return of a Man Called Horse (1976) "... the most interesting phenomenon in this otherwise gaseous enterprise is Owen Roizman's almost three-dimensional landscape photography in 70mm. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011

Posted Dec 17, 2011
No Score Yet Une partie de plaisir (Pleasure Party) (A Piece of Pleasure) (1976) "The interactions get pretty raw, and so is Chabrol's style markedly more raw than we are accustomed to ... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011
No Score Yet La Vallée (The Valley) (1972) "Schroeder is more infatuated with than perceptive about the compulsion to search for paradise ... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011
No Score Yet Swashbuckler (1976) "... just a dumb film boasting broadly bad performances by a good cast, some pleasant scenery, the pleasure of watching a real ship tossing on a real ocean ... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011
100% Rancho Notorious (1952) "Rancho Notorious is strange. Peculiar. Outrageous. Utterly distinctive. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Oct 22, 2011
38% St. Ives (1976) "This movie is so bad that when the convoluted action takes us to a drive-in movie the same film clips can be glimpsed four times... " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Oct 22, 2011
No Score Yet Crime and Passion "... an agreeably peculiar picture, a kind of zonked-out St. George and the Dragon in which St. George is a certifiably incompetent zany and the maiden turns out to be half Dragon Lady herself. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Oct 22, 2011
24% The Three Musketeers (2011) "It's an odd film in a beguiling, sometimes bewildering assortment of modes. " ‐ Parallax View

Posted Aug 21, 2011
No Score Yet Le Vieux fusil (The Old Gun) (Vengeance One by One) (1975) "... basically a lame excuse for a film with a Big Subject: war crimes and their devastating impact on the hearts and minds of decent individuals. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Aug 3, 2011
79% Small Town Murder Songs (2011) "... the film is only an hour-and-a-quarter long, and that's just as well; spells are hard to sustain. Yet it's big enough. " ‐ Parallax View
Posted Jul 12, 2011
95% The Woman in the Window (1944) "... one of Fritz Lang's subtlest films. " ‐ Parallax View
