Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
97% Paris, Texas (1984) Though Paris, Texas is the most interesting American film I've seen all year, it is finally not a success.‐ The New York Review of Books

92% Nashville (1975) Since the protagonists are mostly the performers themselves, and since, by and large, they seemed to me to be nothing but slick hillbilly narcissists, I found it difficult to become interested in their various plights.‐ The New York Review of Books

86% Harold and Maude (1971) A philosophical black comedy for grandparents and grandchildren, or what Walt Disney and Lucille Ball might have thought up if they'd taken courses in the Absurd at UCLA.‐ The New York Review of Books

No Score Yet The Little Theatre of Jean Renoir (Le petit théâtre de Jean Renoir) (1974) Sadly enough, he appears to be suffering an attack of self-congratulatory humanity.‐ The New York Review of Books

No Score Yet I.F. Stone's Weekly (1973) How refreshing is this amiable little ramble among Washington iniquity.‐ The New York Review of Books

64% Ciao! Manhattan (1972) Alternately garrulous, sparse, naïve, sardonic, clumsy, clever, intolerably sad, rawly funny.‐ The New York Review of Books

96% Mean Streets (1973) As full as it is of a crushing, unconsoling force, I thought the relations between the protagonists, after a certain point, symbolically elusive and psychologically flimsy.‐ The New York Review of Books

No Score Yet The All-American Boy (1973) If the film is satiric, in its deadpan way, about "the manly arts," it often generates the contrary feeling of a dirge...‐ The New York Review of Books

83% Save the Tiger (1973) In the phony moral quagmire of Save the Tiger Jack Lemmon tugs at our heart strings while never letting go of his purse strings ...‐ The New York Review of Books

38% Ludwig (1973) An unconscious parody of Visconti's own embattled romanticism, a diatribe against "privileged liberty," an old morality play in which the free soul is the damned soul-a dyspeptic Visconti, as it were, lecturing himself.‐ The New York Review of Books

42% Brother Sun, Sister Moon (Fratello sole, sorella luna) (1972) Faulkner, a winsome newcomer who could probably have been much happier as one of the Monkees, presents the young Francis as a sort of super-straight who returns home from the horrors of the Crusades a disillusioned anti-establishmentarian seeking answers.‐ The New York Review of Books

67% Topaz (1969) Good, but a bit grim, and when not that, a bit glossy ...‐ The New York Review of Books

90% Alphaville (1965) Always something strangely individualistic, utterly contemporary, and yet for all that, riddled with déjà vu, cultural echo chambers, a kind of deliberately outmoded sleight-of-hand.‐ The New York Review of Books

38% The Great Gatsby (1974) The folly of the film, lies, I think, in the damage done to the character of the narrator.‐ The New York Review of Books
