Love with the Proper Stranger (1963)

"Familiar in theme, but given a delightfully fresh flavour by Mulligan's atmospherically low-key direction, excellent performances from Wood and McQueen, and vivid location shooting in New York's Little Italy." ‐Time Out

You're a Big Boy Now (1966)

"Coppola's style had healthy roots in the screwball comedies of the '30s, and the glorious performances litter the film with moments to treasure." ‐Time Out

Leave Her to Heaven (1945)

"Stahl is totally in control, his precise pacing and compositions lending a persuasive dimension of amour fou, while Leon Shamroy's camerawork makes each image a purring pleasure on the eye." ‐Time Out

Le Jour se lève (Daybreak) (1939)

"Possibly the best of the Carné-Prévert films, certainly their collaboration at its most classically pure." ‐Time Out

Les Cousins (1959)

"A fine, richly detailed tableau of student life in Paris, and Chabrol's first statement (in his second film) of his sardonic view of life as a matter of the survival of the fittest." ‐Time Out

In Which We Serve (1942)

"Staged with what passed at the time for honest understatement, it now looks impossibly patronising, the epitome of stiff upper lip." ‐Time Out

Cat People (1942)

"First in the wondrous series of B movies in which Val Lewton elaborated his principle of horrors imagined rather than seen, with a superbly judged performance from Simon." ‐Time Out

The Birds (1963)

"It's fierce and Freudian as well as great cinematic fun, with ample fodder for the amateur psychologist following up on Hitch's tortuous involvement with his leading ladies." ‐Time Out

Sin of Harold Diddlebock (1947)

The Cardinal (1963)

"Risible script based on a doorstop novel by Henry Morton Robinson, but handled by Preminger with tremendous panache; worth seeing just for the incredible skill and flair with which he stages the action and moves the camera." ‐Time Out

I Walked With a Zombie (1943)

"It is Tourneur's caressingly evocative direction, superbly backed by Roy Hunt's chiaroscuro images, that makes sheer magic of the film's brooding journey into fear." ‐Time Out

The Invisible Ray (1936)

"It's briskly staged with some fine camerawork, and Karloff -- turned into a radioactive killer and melting down a symbolic statue after each death on his vengeance trail against his wife and the colleagues he feels have betrayed him -- is great." ‐Time Out

After the Thin Man (1936)

Three Godfathers (1948)

The Car (1977)

"Interminably drawn out, with some good special effects but its characters hauled straight out of the cracker-barrel, it has nowhere near the same minatory charge as Spielberg's Duel." ‐Time Out

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923)

"Worth seeing mainly for Chaney's remarkable performance; even bowed and constricted by the heavy weights he used to help simulate Quasimodo's crippled gait, his body remains extraordinarily expressive." ‐Time Out

Broken Blossoms (1919)

"Very much on the credit side, though, are stretches of pure Griffith poetry, marvellous use of light and shadow in cameraman Billy Bitzer's evocation of foggy Limehouse, and a truly unforgettable performance from Gish." ‐Time Out
