Dark Waters review

Posted : 20 hours, 57 minutes ago on 28 July 2015 03:34 (A review of Dark Waters)

De Toth, as good as he could be. A terrorific atmolsphere, with swamp and mistery, with noirish feeling (even Elisha Cook is here) and a well constructed sense of fear inside and outside pretty Merle.

Till the End of Time review

Posted : 21 hours ago on 28 July 2015 03:31 (A review of Till the End of Time)

Simple and pefect exposure of a personal and familiar drama inside a bigger social one: demovilization after WW II. Madison's character is moving trying to tell and shout his war stories to a mother that doesn´t want to hear. McGuire as a nonsense girl is ok. I prefer Mitchum selfdestructive tahn solid. It has a sexy look on handsome Guy.

The Room Upstairs review

Posted : 21 hours, 5 minutes ago on 28 July 2015 03:26 (A review of The Room Upstairs)

A surprise.Dietrich is excellent falling in love and hating the world around Gabin. She is subversive. D'YD, his uncle, is superb in his miserable philosophy. Herrand,, the consul,ok in his despair to Gabin. I love Margo Lion, Gabin´s sister, changin the hour in the clock to find an alibi.

Shalako review

Posted : 21 hours, 10 minutes ago on 28 July 2015 03:21 (A review of Shalako)

Too frivolous, not just the plot (a hunting team causes an indian war)but the treatment, the spirit. A pitty, becuase Dmytrick is ok and the screenplay have enough action. BB is pure sexyness.

Oh! What a Lovely War review

Posted : 21 hours, 13 minutes ago on 28 July 2015 03:17 (A review of Oh! What a Lovely War)

The Smiths lack presence to become the narrative chain. The cameos by the stars eat the film; too monochord,specially the musical.

Don Quixote review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 18 July 2015 11:48 (A review of Don Quixote)

Just an approximation, the copy is badly rescued, a lot of scenes and connecting shots are missing. Too many archive marerial that seems more a light rtrip to spain than a deep and modern look in Cervantes.

Smilin' Through review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 18 July 2015 11:37 (A review of Smilin' Through)

Shearer is great, silent or talkative, as is here. Too long sequences of reiterative dialogue, but actors made them palatable. March is better when angrier, and Howard when gayer.

Tovarich review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 18 July 2015 11:34 (A review of Tovarich)

Not sure why I dislike it: maybe because it has a lubitschean premise, but it is serious in its appraisal of zarist nobility. Boyer and Claudette sparkles for nothing, Isabel Jeans is miscast in a role for a more mature actress.

The Lacemaker review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 18 July 2015 11:25 (A review of The Lacemaker)

Big surprise. delicat et potente a la fois. Just Isabelle approaching, tiny and fragile, in the hospital aisle, is worth the film. You see a simple romance turning in a tragedy.

Our Town review

Posted : 2 weeks ago on 14 July 2015 01:20 (A review of Our Town)

I love the naiveté of this film because it touches everything (suicide, alcohol, gossio, stupidity of patriotism and war) with such lightness and tenderness. Scott is too old for her role, but guides Holden ok.

“Small film, small argument. It's not noir because direction and lightning are too square; and the killing of the mayor Hinds in the hands of the false heroe is too much too take it seriously. Heflin is always ok” read more

“Eloquent but delicate; little gestures, strong speech softly rendered,it takes time (ante the entrance of Ruth Gordon) to catch that themes of the play and film are the doubt (almost rejection) of ambition of power, and some sense of doom and fatality.” read more

“So well narrated, so equilibrated, so harmonious, this is 1930's prewar "Little women" plus John Garfield. Rains excellent as grumpy perfectionist father. A pkitty that the Lané's are just regular actresses.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Squaw Man

“The most stagey De Mille, mostly in its first british part. It cames better with Lupe 'Naturich' Vlez but I really cann't support the compassionate paternalist ridicule misconception of indians. There´s no abnegation.there´s foolishness in Lupe's suicide and Baxter decision.” read more

“Borzage at his best. Poetic as in silent movies, the precarious life (no house, no money, no bags, no commitments but love) makes meaningful the smallest detail, even a flower (there´s one, robbed form Connoly). Young and Tracey looking at heaven crossed by birds, through a 'windoy' in the roof, is” read more

“Delicate in spite of location (Berlin 1953). Mason is a man between 2 connecting systems and between a marriage. Bloom is between too, but her learning, both sentimental an political, is he heart of the film.” read more

“A mofie for a 'wonderful years generation'. Everything is cute and ok. Strong performances, most in the charm side tan in the histrionic one. Guttenberg is excellent, Dan Stern fighting with Barkin over his records, lovable.” read more
