Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
91% Amarcord (1974) "I remember." Perhaps that's slightly misleading if you regard memory as purely objective recollection, which this movie obviously isn't. ‐ Parallax View

94% Scenes from a Marriage (Scener ur ett √§ktenskap) (1974) In Scenes from a Marriage we are only infrequently offered relief from the claustrophobic intimacy resulting from Bergman's preoccupation with the faces of Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson. ‐ Parallax View
Posted Jun 20, 2015
97% Jaws (1975) Jaws, beyond being a minor triumph of special effects and fabricated reality, is really a well-constructed and -executed film that deserves attention and praise for its craftsmanship if nothing else. ‐ Parallax View

82% Night Moves (1975) Distance and detachment are important in Night Moves not only in describing Harry Moseby's (Hackman's) relationship, or non-relationship, with the world around him, but also in exploring some of Penn's own attitudes. ‐ Parallax View

64% The Day of the Locust (1975) Schlesinger handles his characters as though at the end of a long stick, turning irony into a cruel form of entrapment... ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
57% Race with the Devil (1975) In Race with the Devil any lingering image of the quietly angry-young-something [Peter] Fonda of the late Sixties goes out the window. ‐ Parallax View
Posted Mar 14, 2015
79% The Missouri Breaks (1976) More than a fair share of iridescent, long-shadowed mornings and ghostly blue, otherworldly evenings mark the twilight of an era in The Missouri Breaks, Arthur Penn's end-of-the-West Western. ‐ Parallax View
Posted May 4, 2012
78% I Shot Jesse James (1949) ... a tension between the heroic and the infamous, between a myth of the West and the psychology of a tragically flawed protagonist. ‐ Parallax View
Posted May 4, 2012
75% Stay Hungry (1976) ... the wide variety of emotional responses being elicited in rapid-fire succession by the director makes Stay Hungry a hard movie to trust. ‐ Parallax View
Posted Dec 17, 2011
93% The Shootist (1976) [John] Wayne's performance as J.B. Books is a soft-spoken articulation of toughness, weighted with an elegiac sense of mortality accruing not only to the Books legend. ‐ Parallax View
Posted Aug 22, 2011
84% Bound for Glory (1976) ... to a large extent about how, in the Seventies, we see Woody Guthrie as a folk hero. ‐ Parallax View
Posted Aug 3, 2011
93% Rocky (1976) Sylvester Stallone's meticulous job of screenwriting... is largely responsible for making Rocky such an interestingly compassionate treatment of big guys against little guys. ‐ Parallax View
