50 4% Wanted (2008) - Apr 16, 2021
"Viewed summer 2009"
60 10% Patriot Games (1992) - Apr 16, 2021
"Viewed April 15, 2021. Sturdy, vaguely intelligent thriller - the kind that never gets made nowadays. The boat chase at the end is ridiculous, but also proof that any given action movie from the past has more interesting images than any given CGI'd comic book movie from the present. "
80 36% The Swindle (1997) - Apr 16, 2021
"Viewed April 14, 2021. This is the lightest of Claude Chabrol’s films that I’ve seen, but he still mostly elides the caper elements of this premise, opting instead to emphasize the cruelty at its core."
70 18% The Perfect Furlough (1958) - Apr 16, 2021
"Viewed April 13, 2021. Edwards would eventually evolve the sex comedy genre into something much more melancholic, so this seems simplistic in retrospect, but it’s also a good early example of his gift for comedic timing and especially the way he uses the camera to elevate his visual humor. Nearly every scene has a good visual gag in it "
85 57% Walking Tall (1973) - Apr 16, 2021
"Viewed April 13, 2021. "
85 57% 7 Men from Now (1956) - Apr 16, 2021
"Viewed April 12, 2021. Boetticher has an incredible eye for desolate landscapes, and there’s something deeply, intrinsically compelling about watching stoic Randolph Scott make his way through them."
85 57% Smooth Talk (1985) - Apr 12, 2021
"Viewed April 11, 2021. "
50 4% Murder on the Orient Express (1974) - Apr 12, 2021
"Viewed April 11, 2021. A stiff and laborious adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie novel, Sidney Lumet’s film has some nice acting moments and bits of humor, but feels shapeless and inert from its first scene."
80 36% Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) - Apr 12, 2021
"Viewed April 10, 2021. Not consistently laugh-out-loud funny, but its total commitment to its aesthetic, its unique characters, and its silly tone really pays off. I'd almost prefer the version of this without the villain's complicated plot. Jamie Dornan is surprisingly delightful. "
90 79% The Bells of St. Mary's (1945) - Apr 12, 2021
"Viewed April 10, 2021. Dave Kehr writes that The Bells of St. Mary's is "so subtle in its romantic exposition that it's halfway over before you realize what it's about: a priest in love with a nun"; seen in this light, it's hard not to be moved by the film's delicate humor and characterization."
