"the weirdest thing about this may be that the weakest of all the seven central performances comes from bogart. he's the only one who seems to understand what a ludicrous mess he's involved with - everyone else carries it heroically."
66 T6 Key Largo (1948) - Apr 05, 2017
59 T5 Let There Be Light (1946) - Apr 05, 2017
62 T5 The Maltese Falcon (1941) - Apr 02, 2017
"i recently read 'red harvest', in which the convoluted plot flowed dreamlike along the subtle emotional undercurrents of its narrator's hard-boiled prose. this film needed more of that to earn its climactic speech, but the bulk is a deliciously silly lark (not helped by the score), somewhat inert and drily expository but carried by a killer cast and witty script. bogart's vaguely disturbing spade sowed the seeds for a screen persona that would reach a horrifying zenith with IN A LONELY PLACE."
81 T8 The Gunfighter (1950) - Apr 02, 2017
"one of the earliest westerns to be so overtly revisionist; when once myth elevated and immortalised the outlaws of the old west, now it's suffused with the stench of death, a burden passed via bullet from generation to generation. ringo gets a final heartbreaking taste of the life he could once have chosen, but he enters the film already a corpse, each scene heavy with inevitability, pendulum tick-tocking on the wall. a tragic end, later documented on film of course, is what his legend demands."
84 T9 The Asphalt Jungle (1950) - Apr 02, 2017
89 T10 Nathan for You (2013) - Mar 31, 2017
