It’s a fascinating send-up of and contrast to the sober persona Greta Garbo spent the 1930s developing on screen.
Review: THE PHANTOM CARRIAGE
Rarely had audiences seen a movie where the story was told in such a complex way, adding flashbacks within flashbacks.
Review: THE ENGLISH PATIENT
Themes of love, sorrow and trust in times of great upheaval are delicately handled by Anthony Minghella in his adaptation of the novel.
Quick Take: EMMA.
Unremarkable, but pretty and appealing, much like the 1996 version.
Review: JULES AND JIM
It remains one of the very best New Wave examples.
Quick Take: BIRDS OF PREY
Ewan McGregor is a weak villain, but the movie has a cheeky attitude and offers a decent amount of kick-ass action.
Quick Take: HAPPY BIRTHDAY
The film’s sense of humor and attempts at charm hit a brick wall.
It’s a thrilling and emotional film, throwing its protagonists (and us) from one hair-raising danger to the next.
