This is a breathtaking and unforgettable movie, truly outstanding for its story, actors, and images, as well as its insight into human beings and the society we have created. I could write pages about all the great aspects of this film, but here's just one: Fritz Lang chooses to suggest many things in the film, including violence, but does not show them. That keeps us, the audience, much more involved. If only contemporary directors would do that !!
A very well-done, tense thriller with a few gruesome moments, quite a few mildly erotic ones, an intriguing story and multiple plot twists. The story works because the characters are so well-drawn. Christopher Plummer and Elliott Gould are outstanding, the former as a fearsome, sadistic criminal, and the latter as a seemingly milquetoast man whom everyone underestimates. Co-stars Susannah York and Celine Lomez are believable and engaging. The late 70's vibe of Toronto is great, and Oscar Peterson's score even better.
Marnie is an odd, complex and discomfiting psychological drama, with more annoying "process shots" than any other Hitchcock film I can think of, yet I couldn't take my eyes off the screen for an instant. Hedren and Connery are excellent, and Diane Baker outstanding in a small but crucial role.
An unusual and interesting premise holds the film together. It's a well-done but rather theatrical and intellectual "thriller", but with a very, very important theme: the threat of nuclear war. The atmospheric shots of 1950 London are excellent.
'71 is a powerful, disturbing, engrossing and very well made film, about a terrible moment in the history of the UK and Northern Ireland. It has a taut, twisting, story and an excellent cast - every single actor.
