Le Trou

Released alongside Breathless and The 400 Blows, Jacques Becker's 1959 film was the last great flowering of French classicism; the ‘tradition of quality’ here goes out with a masterpiece. It's a prison-break film, based on a true story, that follows the dictates of the genre almost every step of the way but makes the convention more »

Blow-Up

Michelangelo Antonioni's sexy art-house hit of 1966, which played a substantial role in putting ‘swinging London’ on the map, follows a day in the life of a young fashion photographer (David Hemmings) who discovers, after blowing up his photos of a couple glimpsed in a park, that he may have inadvertently uncovered a murder. Par more »

Time To Die

“Boasting a screenplay by Gabriel Garciá Márquez, with dialogue ‘Mexican-ized’ by Carlos Fuentes….Time to Die is a stark and fatalistic revenge story set in a small tumbleweed town that follows the final days of a released convict destined to encounter the vengeful wrath of the son whose father's murder was the cause of his eigh more »

The 39 Steps

Other English Hitchcock (films) may be more provocative, but few offer such a ripping good yarn. Donat's smooth and upright Richard Hannay flees from London in pursuit of a spy ring, responsible for leaving a murdered woman in his flat; the police inevitably take him for the murderer, and the spies are after him too… (It)really more »

Kill, Baby…Kill!

A new restoration brightens the corners of Mario Bava’s superb gothic 1966 freak-out, crisply rendering each open grave, rotting skull, Limeade cobweb, and tendril of swirling mist. As always in the films of the Italian horror master, death grooves in Day-Glo moodscapes…Few horror films of the period are as committed to soaking more »

Rosemary’s Baby

Pregnant women sometimes look at their men as if to say, ‘What did you do to me?’ Rosemary (Mia Farrow), the Omaha-born girl who's now living in Manhattan, has reason to wonder, and this satirical gothic thriller…is told from her point of view. Rosemary's actor-husband (John Cassavetes) conspires with a coven, drugs her, and mat more »

Ninotchka

A sparkling, witty political fairy tale from 1939, about a cold but beautiful lady commissar (Greta Garbo) who melts to the bourgeois charms of Paris and Melvyn Douglas, jeopardizing both honor and career. That's love. Garbo fully complements the casual sophistication and stylistic grace of director Ernst Lubitsch, cleverly play more »

Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry

“Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, the agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, local economies and rootedness to place have been replaced by a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture cha more »

SUSPIRIA

40 years after its original release, Suspiria returns after an extensive restoration. more »

9/14

The Lady Eve

“A frivolous masterpiece…a mixture of visual and verbal slapstick, and of high artifice and pratfalls. Barbara Stanwyck keeps sticking out a sensational leg, and Henry Fonda keeps tripping over it. She's a cardsharp, and he's a millionaire scientist who knows more about snakes than about women; neither performer has ever been fu more »

10/14

Il Boom

“After 55 years, Vittorio De Sica’s brilliant and biting comedy Il Boom is finally getting its much-deserved U.S. release…Made in 1963 at the peak of Italy’s postwar economic boom, the film follows everyman Alberto Sordi as a small time businessman who, after having fallen in love and married a woman from a wealthy family, falls more »

11/14

Paths of Glory

This is the director’s most vivid, most emotional and humane film, and perhaps his best. Based on a real First World War incident, the film explores the morality of conflict as French Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas) is asked to defend three fellow soldiers accused of cowardice and derelicton of duty. So furiously anti-military that i more »

12/14

Design For Living

“Gary Cooper, Fredric March, and Miriam Hopkins play a trio of Americans in Paris who enter into a very adult ‘gentleman’s agree­ment’ in this continental pre-Code comedy, freely adapted by Ben Hecht from a play by Noël Coward and directed by Ernst Lubitsch. A risqué relationship story and a witty take on creative pursuits, the more »

13/14

Beat The Devil

“The story involves a crowd of raffish misfits killing time in (a) little Italian seaport until repairs are completed on the rust-bucket ship that will take them to British East Africa. They all have secret schemes to stake a claim to a uranium find. Bogart and Lollobrigida play Billy and Maria Dannreuther; he once owned a local more »
