Three Outlaw Samurai
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

An impressive and thrilling art house production and a most splendid directorial debut that any aspiring director can imagine. This samurai tale, filled with stunning sword fights, shows a respectable story about honor and virtues that are able to withstand any adversities. With a very strong narrative structure, beautiful cinematography and a smashing performance by Tetsuro Tamba, Three Outlaw Samurai remains true to its genre. The Criterion Collection did a great job of releasing this untimely flick.

On Dangerous Ground
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

While On Dangerous Grounds has its minor flaws in the storyline, and reveals some of its weaknesses in character development, it's still a perfectly suspenseful and spellbinding noir film that doesn't stop to draw one's attention. It has a deeply grievous overtone, supported by the relationship between a blind woman and the policeman who is supposed to catch her killer-brother. Starting with a very fast pace in the big city, it settles for a little slower action-pack, changing the scenery to a snow-filled secluded village, where a manhunt is underway. Robert Ryan is very likable, even with his threatening attitude, and Ida Lupino astounds with her believable portrayal of a woman who lost sight and is now trying to hide her scared brother. Nicholas Ray's steady hand gives the chills, as the climax approaches and the atmosphere begins to intensify with every following minute.
