|77 T5||Senso (1954) - Jun 29, 2017
"Picturesque and with impressive interiors and costume design. However, couldn't help but regard the dialogue and characters with ridicule which dramatically lessens it's worth. More is needed for a successful opera-on-screen."
|72 T3||Querelle (1982) - Jun 21, 2017
"Unconventional both technically and thematically."
|77 T5||L'Innocente (1976) - Jun 18, 2017
"I felt there was something missing. In order to pull off slow and draggy scenes with grace, a film needs to have a significant amount of substance that can carry the story. L'innocente felt too much of a costume drama which, though sophisticated in it's mise--en-scène, lacked the additional qualities of an entertaining but artistically viable melodrama."
|84 T9||Samurai Rebellion (1967) - Jun 13, 2017
"These Japanese historical films usually need more attention in terms of following the plot but Samurai Rebellion's story is comprehensive and has good structure. The visuals are great all round and acting performances worth noting."
|81 T8||La moglie del prete (1971) - Jun 13, 2017
"Mastroianni as a priest who has to decide between his divine calling and Loren, a seductive woman who wants to marry him. Enjoyment guaranteed."
|75 T4||Forty Guns (1957) - Jun 08, 2017
"Snappy dialogue and multiple beautiful shots."
|82 T8||The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973) - Jun 07, 2017
"Michum between law and crime. "
|70 T2||Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) - Jun 06, 2017
"Had very little suspense, most of it deflated due to a clumsy storytelling. The script certainly needed better treatment."
|82 T8||Downfall (2004) - Jun 05, 2017
"Well-structured and set-up. The detailed focus on the characters proved to be a success."
|81 T8||A Letter to Three Wives (1949) - Jun 04, 2017
"Makes creative use of narration voice and flashbacks to tell the story. Good acting performances, as well."
