3/5 No Score Yet Cremator "Kopfrkingl himself, played by Rudolf Hrusinky, with the face of a gently demonic Charles Laughton and the manner of a malevolent Herbert Marshall, is a creation of considerable interest. " ‐ New York Times

5/5 89% Quatre nuits d'un rêveur (Four Nights of a Dreamer) (1972) "Time and again, it is shockingly beautiful, and I can think of nothing in recent films so ravishing as his strange romantic vision of the city, the river, the softly lighted tourist boats in the night. " ‐ New York Times

3.5/5 91% Bad Company (1972) "A naturalistic, irreverent and sometimes broadly comic view of a largely ignored aspect of the Civil War gives Bad Company a refreshingly good name. " ‐ New York Times
Posted May 21, 2005
1/5 10% Night of the Lepus (1972) "It is this technical laziness as much as the stupid story or the dumb direction that leaves the film in limbo and places it in neither one camp nor the other - neither with Attack of the 50-Foot Woman nor with Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. " ‐ New York Times
