A moving, engrossing story about the human being behind the icon.
Quick Take: THE LAST DUEL
Inevitably a bit of a drag at times because of the repetition, but still compelling, with the duel serving as a memorably gruesome climax.
Quick Take: SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE
Boosted by superior performances by the two leads, and their confrontations, the ”scenes”, are effectively and intimately staged.
Quick Take: THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK
An engaging gangster movie with a good cast; James Gandolfini’s son Michael is fine as young Tony.
Quick Take: HALLOWEEN KILLS
Jamie Lee Curtis is wasted and the film is marked by depressing cruelty.
The writers built a nifty, tragic mystery that’s arresting from start to finish.
Quick Take: ALL FOREIGNERS KEEP THEIR CURTAINS CLOSED
Unfortunately, the bland romance and a less than believable gay storyline mar the film.
Sir Carol Reed’s last great film is long but opulently staged and has solid casting.
