Review: THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES
Soapy and long, the film nevertheless remains great because of its realism.
Quick Take: RED DOT
OK thrills, but credibility suffers.
Quick Take: MALCOLM & MARIE
Often compelling because of its look and furious performances, but not much lies beneath the surface.
Review: LAST TANGO IN PARIS
Superior performances by the two leads and Gato Barbieri’s jazzy music score helped sell a movie that became a scandalous sensation.
Quick Take: DEAR COMRADES!
Dramatic at times, with a good, emotional lead performance.
Quick Take: PALMER
The filmmakers are skilled enough to make it all work to satisfaction, hitting all the right emotional cues and finding the right actors.
Quick Take: THE INVESTIGATION
Slow, but still gripping and enlightening.
Review: RED RIVER
The film was one of the finest achievements of a lot of people involved in it, including the director.
