      Hit the Road (2021) The film is so accomplished, so witty and humane, that I sincerely hope more will follow from Panah Panahi. - The Arts Desk

      Yanks (1979) Yanks is so much better than I expected that I hope I don't overrate it. - Sight & Sound

      Main Street (1956) Bardem's neo-realist pretensions look a trifle thin now, but the film's portrait of a town riddled with prejudice and hypocrisy still packs a weighty punch. - Time Out

      A Time for Dying (1969) The production values are strictly TV (flat lighting, crummy sets), and the actors fail to give their characters any credibility. - Time Out

      Station Six-Sahara (1963) As Station Six Sahara demonstrates, [Seth Holt] had a remarkable gift for conjuring atmosphere, combined with an astute direction of actors (all are excellent) and a masterly use of montage. - Sight & Sound

      The Lady Without Camelias (1953) The resulting cocktail is slight on psychology, but invariably stunning to behold. - Time Out

      The Bird With the Crystal Plumage (1970) Now king of the spaghetti slasher, Argento made his directorial debut with this tightly constructed thriller. - Time Out
      Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2006
      Innocent Sorcerers (1960) If the film still has value, it lies in the compelling lead performances and the vivid portrait of a newly restless milieu. - Time Out

      Dracula's Daughter (1936) Apart from its haunting, low-key mood, the film is also notable for its subtle suggestion (hardly expected from a former director of B Westerns) of the lesbian nature of the female vampire. - Time Out

      The Pumpkin Eater (1964) Fine performances notwithstanding, the world of the Hampstead soap opera now seems so far away as to almost rate as science fiction. - Time Out

      Inside Daisy Clover (1965) Gavin Lambert's screenplay (from his own novel) lives in the land of the ambiguous and fey, which is probably why the film now seems subtle and attractive. - Time Out

      Artists and Models (1955) Tashlin's splashy use of colour, and strong contributions from the female leads (including Anita Ekberg in a cameo), help to give the film its wacky, over-heated edge. - Time Out
      Read More | Posted Feb 09, 2006
      Orphans of the Storm (1922) While the director's handling of humour (clumsy) and pathos (heavily milked) demands some generosity from the audience, the eternal radiance of Lillian Gish shines through everything. - Time Out
      Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
      The Beast (1975) Seen from its own amoral perspective, aided by Borowczyk's remarkable sense of framing and rhythm, La Bte is that rare achievement, a truly erotic film. - Time Out

      Haxan (1922) A weird and rather wonderful brew of fiction, documentary and animation based on 15th and 16th century witchcraft trials, Christensen's film has a remarkable visual flair that takes in Bosch, Breughel and Goya. - Time Out

      The Pianist (2002) The Pianist is a far greater film than Polanski's recent variable track record suggested it might be, a work of sustained tension and ferocious clarity, and as near-perfect a marriage of subject and artist as could be imagined. - Sight & Sound
