Review: THE NIGHT OF
The series is worthwhile because of how Richard Price and Steven Zaillian write their characters, the acting, and the irresistibly dirty New York look.
Quick Take: INTO THE DARKNESS
Well acted and handsomely staged account of the occupation, even if the film might have benefited from a less polished approach.
Review: THRONE OF BLOOD
Along with Roman Polanski’s 1971 adaptation, this one stands as the definitive interpretation of Shakespeare’s tale.
Claire Danes was at the top of her game here, but Mandy Patinkin also excelled.
Review: COME AND SEE
It’s hard to think of any other movie that captures the surreal and historical relevance of the war in such a profound way.
Review: THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA
Superior performances by several actors in the cast are obvious highlights.
Quick Take: NATALIE WOOD: WHAT REMAINS BEHIND
The portrait of Natalie Wood’s life and career is lovingly put together, with many stars providing insight.
Review: THE TIN DRUM
It’s a rich, colorful, to some extent vulgar film, with a fine music score by Maurice Jarre and an unforgettable performance by young David Bennent.
