RASHOMON

“In 9th-century Kyoto, a nobleman's bride is raped by a bandit; the nobleman is murdered, or possibly he is a suicide. This double crime is acted out four times, in the versions of the three participants, each giving an account that increases the prestige of his conduct, and in the version of a woodcutter who witnessed the episo more »

DIARY OF A LOST GIRL

“G.W. Pabst's 1929 follow-up to his notorious Pandora's Box, again with the American starlet Louise Brooks, though this time as sexual victim rather than predator. The daughter of a pharmacist, she is seduced by a shop assistant and launched on a series of humiliations, which include bearing a baby out of wedlock, a term in a re more »

FISTS IN THE POCKET

“An epileptic teenager channels all his hopes and dreams into a single project: the mass murder of his wealthy family, which he intends as a public service. Marco Bellocchio's first film is a fierce, punkish mash of political satire and family melodrama, veins that Bellocchio would continue to pursue…” more »

UNFAITHFULLY YOURS

“One of the most sophisticated slapstick comedies ever made…The hero, a symphony conductor is played by Rex Harrison, who is at one of his comic peaks. During a concert the conductor, convinced that his wife has been unfaithful to him, fantasizes how he will handle the situation in three different ways, according to the style of more »

RIVER’S EDGE

“The 1987 film River's Edge was a film that shocked audiences and critics alike with its depiction of aimless teenagers in a dead-end town….A fictionalized account of a 1981 murder case in Milpitas, California, in which 16-year-old Anthony Jacques Broussard strangled 14-year-old Marcy Conrad and dumped her body near the foothill more »

THE MALTESE FALCON

“Humphrey Bogart's most exciting role was Sam Spade…This film, the first directed by John Huston, is an almost perfect visual equivalent of the Dashiell Hammett thriller. Huston used Hammett's plot design and economic dialogue in a hard, precise directorial style that brings out the full viciousness of characters so ruthless and more »

BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS

“With his first movie for a major studio, Meyer simply did what he'd been doing for years, only bigger and better. That's to say, he turned the homely story of an all-girl rock band's rise to fame under their transsexual manager into a delirious comedy melodrama, soused in self-parody but spiked with dope, sex and thrills.” more »

THE LONG GOODBYE

“Despite cries of outrage from hard-line Chandler purists, this is, along with Hawks' The Big Sleep, easily the most intelligent of all screen adaptations of the writer's work….Altman constructs not only a comment on the changes in values in America over the last three decades, but a critique of film noir mythology: references, more »
