The Breaking Point
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Gut wrenching film noir, which occurs mostly in the bright sunlight for a change. Neal is at her most... va voom, with Thaxter as the worthy 'other woman' our flawed hero should stay with.

Incredible script, acting, editing, and plot layers. A shame the camera work was so basic, but perhaps that adds to the viewers ability to follow what's really going on.

The Man Who Cheated Himself
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Proper film noir with a sibling twist. I would have rated higher but the final third of the picture seems to have been edited a bit tight. Those who know San Fransisco will appreciate a few of the scenes.

A shame Dall didn't live longer - he had quite an engaging presence.

The Hill
The Hill (1965)
8 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Disturbing film about what the corruption of absolute power - which was scientifically studied 6 years later in the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. What are any of us truly capable of when tormentors are merciless and constantly in our face?

While the cinematography seems mediocre, that merely allows the movie to unfold as if it's nowhere special - it could happen anywhere. The script, acting, and direction lift the tale into an excellent thriller. A film classic.

Exodus
Exodus (1960)
9 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

A troubling historical drama which entwines the birth of a nation with the ugly truth that nearly every country is born of violence & personal loss - even the USA.

Dark Passage
Dark Passage (1947)
9 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A well written Bogart/Bacall vehicle where nearly no one is innocent. If this wasn't film noir, I'd want to have seen this in color to admire Morehead.
