Oliver! Reviews

February 27, 2015
Oliver! is a timeless classic that will be as lovable in 10 or 20 years as it is today.

The focus of the movie is so wide, and the logistics of the production so heavy, that Oliver himself, dutifully played by 9-year-old Mark Lester, gets flattened out and almost lost, as if he had been run over by a studio bulldozer.

There's plenty of mileage left in the famous story.

After a season of watching inane twitching in the name of dance, the viewer is most happily greeted by Onna White's choreography, an exuberant step-by-step exploration of Victorian zeal.

In retrospect, it seems emblematic of the triviality Reed descended to in the last years of his career. The Third Man it's not.

Reed is craftsman enough to make an efficient family entertainment out of Lionel Bart's musical, but not artist enough to put back any of Dickens' teeth which Bart had so assiduously drawn.

A treasure of a movie.
