63 71% Pierrot le fou (1965) - Nov 24, 2020
"A wonderful distillation of the cultural tides in the mid 1960s."
48 50% Under the Red Robe (1937) - Nov 18, 2020
"Despite some ridiculous elements (Raymond Massey's make-up, Romney Brent's deft finger-work), it's kind of entertaining, if static."
33 28% Night of the Living Dead (1968) - Nov 18, 2020
"On my most recent viewing I found it... weak. Poor acting, poor dialogue, poor pacing. The opening and ending are great, but in the middle? Meh."
44 44% About Time (2013) - Nov 16, 2020
"Feel-good sentimental fantasy that made me feel good. "
40 38% Midnight Cowboy (1969) - Nov 11, 2020
"Poor pacing undermines the poignant tragedy of two well-realised characters. "
55 62% Wake in Fright (1971) - Oct 28, 2020
"People call this film nihilistic, but I don't think that's accurate. What we see is a kind of rendering of the fat of civilisation to uncover the masculine beast within."
88 93% Belle de jour (1967) - Oct 25, 2020
"More tragic and less religious than my favourite Buñuels, and perhaps a little undervalued by me as a consequence. "
41 39% The Hard Way (1979) - Oct 05, 2020
"Spare and cliched, it still was quite an effective little film. Made for Irish television. "
65 73% Red Desert (1964) - Oct 01, 2020
"A difficult film that asks questions but has no answers."
31 24% Tigertail (2020) - Sep 08, 2020
"It borrows its end from EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN, and offers no new twists to a familiar story (unless the Taiwanese angle is meant to twist the tale). But it's done with an admirable professionalism."
