Kiss Me Deadly

“Robert Aldrich’s flamboyant and hectic 1955 film noir opens with a pre-credit sequence that announces its blend of sexual voracity, sadism, found poetry, sharp-edged performances, and visual invention. The story is adapted from a pulp novel by Mickey Spillane, and its detective, the brutish Mike Hammer (played by Ralph Meeker) more »

Vera Cruz

“A brash, lively, and totally appealing Western about a couple of American adventurers - Cooper, a decent but cynical Southern gentleman, and Lancaster, a supremely conniving crook - getting involved with Maximilian's imperial court and the Juarez revolutionaries in 1860s Mexico…..Beautifully shot by Ernest Laszlo, it conjures u more »

Cry of the City

“Atmosphere is everything in this 1948 remake of Manhattan Melodrama, with Victor Mature and Richard Conte replacing William Powell and Clark Gable as the two slum pals who grow up on opposite sides of the law. Director Robert Siodmak was in many ways the reference point for film noir in the 40s…his style was one of the most st more »

Ride Lonesome

“One of the best of the Boetticher/Scott Westerns, bleaker but not too distant in mood from the autumnal resignation of Peckinpah's Ride the High Country, as Scott's ageing lawman lets time catch up with him…It’s deviously structured as an odyssey of cross-purposes in which Scott captures a young gunman and proceeds to take him more »

Showgirls

“…The film's protagonist is Nomi, a fiercely independent…doll-like creature who arrives in Las Vegas lost, with no family, no friends and a CV consisting exclusively of straight-talking and lap dancing. Soon, her ability to arouse piques the attention of Cristal Connors, performed by the wickedly absurd Gi more »

Mikey & Nicky

“Nicky (John Cassavetes), a small-time gangster, is holed up in a Philadelphia flophouse, hiding from a hit man. His lifelong friend and Mob companion, Mikey (Peter Falk), shows up to help him out—or to sell him out. In the course of their apocalyptic overnight ramble, the two men act out a lifetime of unresolved passions, pett more »

Shanghai Express

”Irresistibly enjoyable. Marlene Dietrich gets to deliver what is perhaps her most memorable line: ‘It took more than one man to change my name to Shanghai Lily.’ In this glossy mixture of sex and intrigue, Shanghai Lily and her exquisitely stoic beloved (Clive Brook) fall into the hands of sinister Chinese revolutionaries led b more »

7/9

Criss Cross

“Wonderfully seedy tale of betrayal and obsession from superb noir-thriller stylist Siodmak. Beautifully shot and scripted, it bears more than a slight resemblance to the same director's The Killers. Again Lancaster is the fall guy, an armoured-car payroll guard still brooding over his ex-wife, who has taken up with gangster Sl more »

8/9

Streetwise

“Seattle, 1984. Taking their camera to the streets of what was supposedly America’s most livable city, filmmaker Martin Bell, photographer Mary Ellen Mark, and journalist Cheryl McCall set out to tell the stories of those society had left behind: homeless and runaway teenagers living on the city’s margins. Born from a Life magaz more »
