The Desperate Hours review

Posted : 1 day, 4 hours ago on 25 April 2015 09:06 (A review of The Desperate Hours)

In a way it has aged; in the other hand, its a pioneer of police melodrama, in a situation of laboratory, with hostages and psicocriminals. Characters seem intelligent ans sophisticated in involuntary idiot subplots, then act in a too intelligent way. Bogey and March are impecable.

The Enforcer review

Posted : 1 day, 4 hours ago on 25 April 2015 09:02 (A review of The Enforcer)

I forgot how good was this. Windust must've been somebody to sign instead of Walsh. How tense, tight, ahead of its time, concentrated. The crime of crime, hits and contracts pioneer film of them all. Sloanne leaving a scene of cirme with a nervous De Corsia is great. He doesn't have to explain again the absence of motif theory.

Battle Circus review

Posted : 1 day, 4 hours ago on 25 April 2015 08:57 (A review of Battle Circus)

Bogey not too harsh and June not too silly, they're convincibly in love. Skeptical war dialogues ok; but they're too heroic in their behaviour. At least, Bogey drinks and June has a nice gag, when she believes war is over because tents are being removed, as in a circus.

Sirocco review

Posted : 1 day, 4 hours ago on 25 April 2015 08:55 (A review of Sirocco)

Too americanized visit to 1925 Damasco,with cosmopolitan restaurants where women go at night.Bah. It lacks feeling of exotism. At least Marta Toren is a exotic swedish, Bogey is himself and Sloanne is always OK.

Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 18 April 2015 05:35 (A review of Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart )

Zagar is very well documentated and leaves you with the feeling that everuvidy, society and Pamela, were satisfied of hiperdramatizing this story.

So strange. Franco is right explaining why he wants to experiment woth tolerance to gay sex then (in Friedkin's "Cruising" time) and now. Val Lauren is moving.

Easy Riders, Raging Bulls: How the Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll Generation Saved Hollywood review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 18 April 2015 05:32 (A review of Easy Riders, Raging Bulls: How the Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll Generation Saved Hollywood)

Just to see some gossipy interviews on 'tell it all' Phillips, Schlesinger's homosexuality ant everubodies addictions. But there's always an alibi to talk about it.

Force Majeure review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 18 April 2015 05:30 (A review of Force Majeure)

Great study on characters marked by a fact (a phisical avalanche that stops continues, in a way, inside them). Great landscape surrounding, involving the story. You forgive tha manipulation and the open ending.

A Most Violent Year review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 18 April 2015 05:27 (A review of A Most Violent Year)

Chastain is excellent. Oscar Isaac had to be better to convince us of his stubborness, but fails. One gets tired of expecting the violence. Film gets better in Isaac and Chastain home.

On the Riviera review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 18 April 2015 05:23 (A review of On the Riviera)

Great Kaye, great coreogrepher Jack Cole (I love Gwen Verdon, his preferred dancer here). Tierney and Calvet lost in the background. The spirited confusing silly plot of impersonations is washed of its dramatic undertones

“Don't like the criminal plot because is too trite (big heads in town are repsonsible for raping and killing young girls, bah) but there´s a bonus in the relationship of the two cops, one correct and liberal, the other with a dark 'Franco' side, but better in his work” read more

“As an anticipated telefilm, too focused in a lcinical case, didactic on the education of deaf children, with some corny twirls, but a nice balance. Goold noble Hawkins, in silent love with proto feminist Phyllis Calvert.” read more
