Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% The Queen of Spades (1949) The Queen of Spades is a treasured relic of a time when the British cinema momentarily abandoned its good manners and revelled gloriously in visual and emotional excess.‐ The Arts Desk

5/5 97% Casablanca (1942) There are some of the very finest character actors that Warner Brothers could muster and a rich, detailed screenplay studded with an indecent number of sparklingly quotable lines. It is a movie to play again, and again.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
