65/100 The Last Detail (1973) Gabe Leibowitz The interaction, dialogue, and parent/child-esque relationships are very well done, if somewhat repetitive. EDIT

65/100 The Clock (1945) Gabe Leibowitz Billed in some circles as the original Before Sunrise, Vincente Minnelli's The Clock doesn't come particularly close to reaching those hallowed grounds, but its structure and conclusion certainly make the comparison understandable. EDIT

Posted Aug 20, 2010
65/100 Inception (2010) Gabe Leibowitz Inception, which has been talked up to crazy heights and showcases the best, as well as the most problematic, aspects of Nolan's directorial chops. EDIT

3.5/4 Letters From Iwo Jima (2006) Gabe Leibowitz Only an overstuffed middle, battle-heavy section keeps Letters From Iwo Jima from being an elite movie. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2006
3/5 The Vanishing (1988) Gabe Leibowitz Somewhat erie and efficient, but never really gets under your skin. EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2005

Posted Oct 7, 2004

Posted Oct 7, 2004
4/4 House of Flying Daggers (2004) Gabe Leibowitz House of Flying Daggers has all the visual extravaganza of Hero but thrice its emotional heft, putting it on par with Ang Lee's extraordinary CTHD. EDIT

Posted Jul 19, 2004

Posted Apr 13, 2004

Posted Mar 16, 2004
1/5 The Untouchables (1987) Gabe Leibowitz Too campy for its topic matter...Costner is typically dull as a 75 year-old unsharpened sword. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2004
0/5 Blackmail (1929) Gabe Leibowitz Horrific and dated....worth seeing from a strictly historical standpoint. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2004
3/4 Bad Santa (2003) Gabe Leibowitz A word of advice: see Bad Santa, but see it once without checking your movie listings twice. EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2004
3/5 High Heels (1991) Gabe Leibowitz Witty and snappy Almodovar....as usual, but still great fun. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
4/5 My Name Is Ivan (1963) Gabe Leibowitz Tarkovsky's most underrated film, simple but riveting. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
4/5 A Bronx Tale (1993) Gabe Leibowitz A superb directorial debut by DeNiro, a work that rivals Goodfellas. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
3/5 Crooklyn (1994) Gabe Leibowitz Standard Spike Lee fare, which means it comes with its high and low points. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
3/5 Europa, Europa (1990) Gabe Leibowitz The shower scene still sends shivers up my spine, and it's been years since I've seen it. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
4/5 Repulsion (1965) Gabe Leibowitz Polanski's best by a wide margin. The walls! The walls! EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
2/5 The General (1927) Gabe Leibowitz Vastly overrated; moderately charming but I think I laughed once. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
4/5 Alphaville (1965) Gabe Leibowitz Packed to the brim with imagination, particularly the insane 2nd half. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
2/5 Sisters of the Gion (1936) Gabe Leibowitz Mizoguchi presents similar themes MUCH more powerfully in Ugetsu or Sansho the Bailiff; here, it falls flat EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
3/5 Jules and Jim (1962) Gabe Leibowitz Far too cute and ridiculous for its own good, yet riddled with so many strong points that it can't be overlooked. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
3/5 Variety Lights (1950) Gabe Leibowitz Delightfully charming and whimsical, if nowhere near as consequential as Fellini's best. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
0/5 Carnosaur (1993) Gabe Leibowitz Few movies have ever been more inept and ridiculous...but maybe that's the point. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003

Posted Dec 22, 2003
4/5 The Wizard of Oz (1939) Gabe Leibowitz A delightful fantasy for children and adults alike, one that cherishes childhood and its dreams. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
2/5 The Last Boy Scout (1991) Gabe Leibowitz Overblown rubbish, with nothing to hang on to save the opening football field scene EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
2/4 The Tracker (2002) Gabe Leibowitz Though certainly not without merit, Rolf de Heer's The Tracker commits the cardinal sin of cinema; it's excruciatingly boring a good chunk of the time. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2003
4/5 On the Waterfront (1954) Gabe Leibowitz Extremely polished and featuring another powerhouse effort from Brando. EDIT
Posted Sep 29, 2003
5/5 Los olvidados (1950) Gabe Leibowitz One of the most powerful of all coming-of-age films, Los Olvidados is Luis Buñuel's first masterpiece, a blend of surrealism and horrific neorealism which implants itself in the viewer's mind for days. It's criminal there's not a Region 1 DVD available, EDIT
