Irma La Douce
Irma La Douce (1963)
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"the apartment" with a bigger budget and less of a point, Wilder reteams lemmon and Maclaine in essentially the same roles, under different, lighter circumstances and a Parisian locale. it's not bad, per se, only light entertainment. Network television used to run the film every year.

Arsenic and Old Lace
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While this madcap drawing room comedy rests on the shoulders of the ever charming mr. Grant, who does more doubletakes here than in any other feature he may have done, there is actually quite a lot to be said for the obvious fun being had by the heavies, Raymond massey and peter lorre, who chew scenery with the best of them and look as if they're restraining themselves from outright giggling during their scenes together. Rightfully one of the best of this genre.

Maudie (2017)
9 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Sally Hawkins and Ethan hawke do very well here as marginalized fringe personalities, given the short shrift so often in life and society that they fully expect it as the natural course and are little surprised in their positions, who discover an uneasy grace with one another. How they navigate their lives and emotions I found to be satisfying moviemaking.

Avanti! (1972)
9 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Jack Lemmon is a one note rich and ugly American over in Italy to see about the interment of his father, unexpectedly dead while on vacation. Juliet mills is (unfortunately) the one note European sex goddess in Italy on a similar mission. it plays somewhat better than it sounds, but not by much as there is little real chemistry between the leads, mills throwing herself at lemmon inexplicably until he inexplicably relents. meh.

Vivacious Lady
9 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Although the star power is more than adequate here, the real heavy lifting is done by the writing staff whose purpose is to find reasons enough for coitus interruptus, over and over again, enabling the tension dynamic of the whole piece. How long can they do it? They do it for the length of the film. It gets tiresome after a bit, as it should.
