6.5/10
Adult drama in the style of Douglas Sirk, mostly believable (except for Matthau's action at the end) but lacks the poetic quality that elevated Sirk's best works.

Cabiria (1914)
This early epic Italian silent feels choppy, most likely the result of missing so many scenes to the ravages of time. As a result, the story is hard to follow, and there aren't even identifiable characters. Some nifty set-pieces impressed me with their sc

Stone Reader (2003)
Books are awesome. That's the primary theme of Mark Moskowitz's documentary about his quest to track down the author of Stones of the Summer, a book he loved when he read it in 1972. Within that umbrella theme Moskowitz explores why first-time authors of

Darling (1965)
Julie Christie won Best Actress and Frederic Raphael Best Screenplay, but I was most impressed with Dirk Bogarde as the spurned lover in John Schelsinger's morality fable about a modern girl's implacable vacuousness.

Lesser known and underappreciated Sam Peckinpah film starring Steve McQueen. It's a quiet character-driven story about an aging rodeo star who visits his family on one of his stops. There's little of the characteristic Peckinpah violence, but the theme of

The Letter (1940)
More subtle than most melodramas, and as much a look at male gullibility as female manipulation. Another fine performance from Bette Davis.

Nashville (1975)
Just this side of brilliant ... if the country songs were shorter and less numerous I'd probably give it a '5'. As it stands, no other film (save maybe Taxi Driver) capture the post Vietnam, post Watergate malaise better.

Dark Star (1974)
This is allegedly a comedy, but it's so amateur-hour that it's difficult to find laughs when the poor soundtrack muffles most of the dialogue.

Raw Deal (1948)
A lesser effort from Anthony Mann, with a rudimentary plot but striking cinematography from John Alton. It's a movie where the hero is only less evil than the villains, and it's downbeat, dark, and low-budget. The bare-bones plot is strictly a means to vi

I appreciated this movie more for its mise-en-scene (which, given Fassbinder's idiosyncratic style, often begs to be beheld) than its allegorical content. The arrangement of the actors in the screen-space, so conspicuously unnatural, has a comedic and dis

The story isn't all that believable, and there's just little to get excited about --not suspenseful, funny, romantic, etc. Ho-hum.

The closest thing to a good football movie, North Dallas Forty sports an excellent performance from Nick Nolte and emphasizes the pain and manipulation involved in the sport. Few of the actors look like professional athletes, but maybe that's the way it w

The plot is an excuse to get at the real meat of the film: what feelings informed the magnificent, passionate music of Ludwig van Beethoven? The answers the film comes up with are somewhat trite, and apart from Oldman, no one in the cast seems up to task.
