|80 T7||El Dorado (1966) - Apr 27, 2017
"It's the characters and their details that drove my interest. The plot itself is quite thin but smaller elements make this captivating and easy to watch."
|78 T6||Lights in the Dusk (2006) - Apr 25, 2017
"Though not Kaurismäki at his best, there's a plot that functions with all the obvious touches of his filmmaking present."
|72 T3||Manhatta (1921) - Apr 25, 2017
"The poetic approach doesn't work as this quite compact portrayal of New York City cityscape by moving images tries to make an artistic impact on the viewer."
|78 T6||Montparnasse (1929) - Apr 25, 2017
"Works as an eccentric documentation of a city and it's people in action."
|82 T8||Nazarín (1959) - Apr 24, 2017
"The thematic of religion is closely treated, as usual with Buñuel. The number of minor characters who participate in the action, is notable, and they're testing Nazarin as he tries to cope with his true conviction of Christian ethics and conduct. "
|74 T3||Forgotten Silver (1995) - Apr 24, 2017
"Not humorous enough as a joke film, not convincing enough as a mockumentary."
|83 T9||Unforgiven (1992) - Apr 24, 2017
"Plays with western genre traditions and motives successfully. Unforgiven is set up well in terms of narrative and characters, from which the sheriff, portrayed by Hackman, is my favourite. Eastwood's a cool guy but his self-adoration on this one goes too far, hurting the credibility of the story he created (even though it is thick on western mythology in the first place)"
|75 T4||I Hired a Contract Killer (1990) - Apr 13, 2017
"Cute idea for a film. Not bad but nothing noteworthy."
|87 T10||Diabolique (1955) - Apr 09, 2017
"A subdued and conventional at the start. Mysterious suspenseful towards a harrowing ending. Believable but gently exacerbated characters, exciting story and subtle humour."
|78 T6||Ball of Fire (1941) - Apr 08, 2017
"If I could disregard some of the ridiculous overacting and illogically generated motifs of the characters, this rating would be multiple points higher. "
