Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
14% The Pride and the Passion (1957) "If you can believe in Sinatra as an 1810 vintage Spanish guerrilla, you can believe anything, but it's still a slog through a platitudinous script." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
38% The Moon Is Blue (1953) "Despite the fuss at the time, there's little blue about this except the title." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
57% Heaven's Gate (1980) "For all the abuse heaped on it, this is -- in its complete version, at least -- a majestic and lovingly detailed Western which simultaneously celebrates and undermines the myth of the American frontier." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
90% Monty Python's And Now for Something Completely Different (1972) "All good stuff." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
96% The Crowd "The performances are absolutely flawless, and astonishing location work in the busy New York streets (including a giddy tour of Coney Island on a blind date) lends a gritty ring of truth to his intensely human odyssey." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Adam's Rib (1949) "The performances (not least from Wayne and Hagen) are matchless." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
97% Stalag 17 (1953) "A fascinating film." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
8% Boom! (1968) "It gets Burton and Taylor, comfortably matched, making nonsense of theme and relationships, and giving monotonously unsubtle performances (she screeches, he glooms). " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
64% Arabesque (1966) "Much flashier than Donen's earlier Charade (also scripted by Peter Stone, alias Pierre Marton) and very sub-Hitchcock. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
93% Take Me Out to the Ball Game (1949) "What matters is the stylish ebullience, and the excellent score by Roger Edens, Adolph Green and Betty Comden." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Cool Hand Luke (1967) "A caustically witty look at the American South and its still-surviving chain gangs, with Newman in fine sardonic form as the boss-baiter who refuses to submit and becomes a hero to his fellow-prisoners." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% This Sporting Life (1963) "A reminder that something really was stirring in those days of the British New Wave before it frittered itself away." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
82% Advise and Consent (1962) "Grips like a vice thanks to the skill with which Preminger's stunning mise en scène absorbs documentary detail." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
96% Twelve O'Clock High (1949) "One of Peck's best performances." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
92% The Big Combo (1955) "Terrific gangster movie." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Salvatore Giuliano (1962) "Stunningly shot in stark black-and-white by Gianni Di Venanzo." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
93% Alice Adams (1935) "Hepburn is magnificent as the small-town social climber, although the script so softens Booth Tarkington's novel." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Citizen Kane (1941) "A film that gets better with each renewed acquaintance." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
69% The List of Adrian Messenger (1963) "Saddled with an incredibly creaky whodunit plot, this thriller should really have been set in Victorian times to accommodate its villain with a passion for disguises, its Holmesian detective in a bowler hat, its murder in a fog-bound Limehouse." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
76% Hell's Angels (1930) "The end result is barely adequate. But it does feature a spectacularly elaborate World War I dogfight, and an equally fine Zeppelin sequence. And of course there's Harlow." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
95% House of Wax (1953) "De Toth brings off one classic sequence with Kirk fleeing through the gaslit streets pursued by a shadowy figure in a billowing cloak." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Innocence Unprotected (1968) "Makavejev's third film, an entrancing collage using excerpts from the first Serbian talkie, a hilariously naïve melodrama made in occupied Belgrade in 1942 with film stock stolen from the Germans." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
79% The Great Muppet Caper (1981) "The songs are routine, but the inconsequential plot leaves plenty of time for engaging asides." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
97% The Thin Man (1934) "What enchants, really, is the relationship between Nick and Nora as they live an eternal cocktail hour, bewailing hangovers that only another little drink will cure, in a marvellous blend of marital familiarity and constant courtship." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% The Lost Weekend (1945) "What makes the film so gripping is the brilliance with which Wilder uses John F Seitz's camerawork to range from an unvarnished portrait of New York brutally stripped of all glamour." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
86% Car Wash (1976) "Highly enjoyable." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
5/6 100% The Conformist (1970) "Juggling past and present with the same bravura flourish as Welles in Citizen Kane, Bertolucci conjures a dazzling historical and personal perspective." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Top Hat (1935) "The third Astaire-Rogers movie and one of the best." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
33% Sinful Davey (1969) "An inconsequential but likeable romp." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
50% Love Is a Many Splendored Thing (1955) "East meets West for some lush tripe based on a novel by Han Suyin, who had company in disliking it." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
74% Around the World in 80 Days (1956) "An interminable travelogue interspersed with sketches in which star-spotting affords some relief." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% The Prowler (Cost of Living ) (1951) "Losey rises magnificently to the occasion in his use of the Mojave Desert ghost town location." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
93% Unfaithfully Yours (1948) "Not much liked at the time, but a small masterpiece just the same in its skilful blending of moods, genuinely moving and quite beautifully played by Harrison and Darnell." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
89% Carnal Knowledge (1971) "This was never quite the major assault on sexism and male chauvinism it set itself up to be." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
83% Play Misty for Me (1971) "A highly enjoyable thriller." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
92% Mrs. Miniver (1942) "Classic soap opera in which good old British understatement has a field day, everybody is frightfully nice, and sentimentality is wrapped up in yards of tasteful gloss." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
94% My Night at Maud's (Ma Nuit chez Maud) (1970) "Still one of Rohmer's best films." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
96% 3:10 to Yuma (1957) "It's of necessity a talkative film, with Ford working on Heflin's nerves in a stream of Machiavellian banter, but one held in perfect balance by Daves, who keeps the tension strung taut." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
75% Sweet Bird of Youth (1962) "Brooks' direction seems a little too stolid for all the sleazy, flaming passions. These are, however, given full measure by an excellent cast." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
96% Charulata (1964) "Certainly one of Ray's best films, with a superb music score of his own composition. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Casque d'Or (1952) "One of the great movie romances." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
83% As You Desire Me (1932) "Garbo (sporting a peroxide wig some of the time) brings a real erotic undertow to the love scenes, while Stroheim is terrific as the demonically sadistic writer trying to model her as one of his own creations." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
84% Performance (1970) "Roeg's debut as a director is a virtuoso juggling act which manipulates its visual and verbal imagery so cunningly that the borderline between reality and fantasy is gradually eliminated. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
95% Prince of the City (1981) "An astonishing in-depth portrait of the interlocking worlds of police and hoodlum results, with no punches pulled and no easy solutions." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
89% Der Amerikanische Freund (The American Friend) (1977) "Superb adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel Ripley's Game, with Hopper as her amiably cynical hero." ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
59% Cavalcade (1933) "Nary a tear-jerking trick is missed (our family loses one son to the Titanic, the other to World War I), and the strangulation is compounded by the staginess since the film. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
93% Martin (1977) "Romero makes stunning use of his Pittsburgh locations to create a desolate suburban wasteland, and at its best it is rivetingly raw-edged. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
100% Aranyer Din Ratri (Days and Nights in the Forest) (2003) "Beautifully shot and acted, it's probably Ray's masterpiece." ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 26, 2006
100% Frankenstein (1931) "The film is unique in Whale's work in that the horror is played absolutely straight, and it has a weird fairytale beauty not matched until Cocteau made La Belle et la Bête. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 26, 2006
43% Naughty Marietta (1935) "The first MacDonald-Eddy vehicle, enormously popular in its day so somebody must have been able to stand this simpering duo." ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 26, 2006
88% Good Morning (1959) "A brimming sense of life, in other words, gradually transforms the small talk into a richly devious portrait of humanity being human. " ‐ Time Out
