The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell review

Posted : 14 hours, 6 minutes ago on 28 January 2015 08:06 (A review of The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell)

Cooper in medium shot, sad and impatient, with his team behind him and behind the window; that image resumes the film. Bellamy is excellent. Good story in spite of the classic 'justice plot'.

The Private Life of Henry VIII review

Posted : 2 days, 7 hours ago on 27 January 2015 02:33 (A review of The Private Life of Henry VIII)

I love it. Tough, intelligent, funny, but not too harsh on fat Henry. Vivid support roles (Lanchaster is excellent negotiaiting his marriage), everybody is dignified in the last moment, and that includes Henry, of course. Wonderful scenes in the sweatty kitchen, as a prelude for the best Laughton monologues.

Scorpio review

Posted : 2 days, 7 hours ago on 27 January 2015 02:28 (A review of Scorpio)

Aged, as most spy films of 60s and 70s. But Winner afirms character in action, specially in Lancaster cat amd mouse routine with Delon. Burt and alain are too smart, and chiefs are too stupid.

Private Hell 36 review

Posted : 1 week, 4 days ago on 17 January 2015 11:01 (A review of Private Hell 36)

One can trace here the modern rotten cop thriller, in the sexy toughness of Cochrane. Ida is an exciting actress bur is too old for a Gloria Grahame character. Duff is ok and doesn´t bother his real liaison with Ida.

The Darjeeling Limited review

Posted : 1 week, 4 days ago on 17 January 2015 10:57 (A review of The Darjeeling Limited)

Pure Wes. More a tour to his tastes than a tour to India. The humour is traced in the laconic expression and contradictory behavior of the 3 bros., speciallly Jason, real Wes buddy.

The Big Trail review

Posted : 2 weeks, 4 days ago on 10 January 2015 04:42 (A review of The Big Trail)

Long paced because of landscape, of 'grandeur' and not just because of narrative choice. Wayne is natural and ok, but not in the 'arenga'. The bad ones are better: !surprise: Tyrone Power has a strong character father!.

Welcome to New York review

Posted : 2 weeks, 4 days ago on 10 January 2015 04:38 (A review of Welcome to New York)

I like the dirty imperfect director´s cut. It takes time, for Ferrara and for the espectator, to get inside Depardieu. Firts part is almost descriptive of the scandal; but then, discussing with Bisset (there´s a sort of impro in the acting and some texts), and int the final secen with the hispanic girl, yoo can have a taste pf why Devereaux is what he is. A pity, the script had to restrain form some details in order to avoid the explicit realtion with the real scandal.

Paris Blues review

Posted : 2 weeks, 4 days ago on 10 January 2015 04:28 (A review of Paris Blues)

Ritt visits Paris with old cliches and some other in the making (free black people, jazz joints, gipsy addicts as Serge Reggiani etc.). Newman and Woodward tastes somo erotism new daring to USA butaged to France. Louis Armstrong pays a visit.

Cry Danger review

Posted : 3 weeks, 2 days ago on 5 January 2015 01:37 (A review of Cry Danger)

Cool, ordinary locations and interiors (a third of the film occurs in trailers), crookes good ones and nice bad ones, nice scheming Fleming, excellent sidekick Richard Erdman. No doubt Parrish has a point of view.

“Forget the trite sperpentic story of incest, pyromania, young aspirants in Hollywood, and arrogance in Croneneberg point of view: the details and cast are worth the film. Julianne is excellent, Mia too, Pattinson cool, Cusack ok and the monster kids talking bullshit is the best joke.” read more

“Amalric exercises in tradition and that´s all. The 'amour fou' a la Truffaut meets Simenon, with a touch of Chabrol. The heart is in some details (the red towell, telling him that she is available) and some outbursts of character afeter the cold depiction of crime.

“A must, the 124min, copy, expanding on explaanatiosn on bullfighting and wandering of Stack thorugh landscape. Honets in its candid approoach to some themes, and macho code of honour.” read more

“Better tha I remenber. Ingrid is exhilarating, going from histeric woman to schemig witch, without losing charm. Even Cooper smelts beside her. Great character, Cupidon, cliaming for his dignity and being so servant.” read more

“Agile, clever in spite of comic mishappens (Russell is funny posing as a matron and jelous of Binnie Barnes). It makes tolerable something as dry as war codes.” read more

fernando posted a review of Not as a Stranger

“To watch just for the cast, a washed melodrama, with some edge in the nonchalance of Gloria Grahame, and De Havilland's discoviering she is a romatic idiot. Mitchum too stony to such a delicate character, but ¡what a star he is!” read more

fernando posted a review of One Way Passage

“I loved it before watching it, and havent´t being deceived. Simetric in pain, love and gender (each one will die, each one hides the truth, each one takes the initiative), romantic and agonic but not sublime. McHigh and MacMahon takes care of its modernity. Garnett is not Borzage and thats ok.
