THE OLD DARK HOUSE

“Alongside The Bride of Frankenstein, Whale's greatest film, a masterly mixture of macabre humour and effectively gripping suspense. A very simple story - a group of travellers stranded by a storm take shelter in the sinister, unwelcoming Femm household, a gloomy mansion peopled by maniacs and murderers - allows Whale to concent more »

THE BAKER’S WIFE

“The village baker cannot work because he laments his wife's departure with a stupid, sexy shepherd; the villagers, who want their bread, organize to bring her back. Raimu's baker is an acting classic-a true tragicomic hero-and it's easy to agree with Orson Welles, who cited this comedy as proof that ‘a story and an actor, both more »

MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW

“With the possible exception of Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story, this 1937 drama by Leo McCarey is the greatest movie ever made about the plight of the elderly. (It flopped at the box office, but when McCarey accepted an Oscar for The Awful Truth, released the same year, he rightly pointed out that he was getting it for the wrong pic more »

AN ACTOR’S REVENGE

“Kon Ichikawa's 1963 masterpiece, one of the most dazzling and stylistically audacious Japanese films ever made, has to be seen to be believed—though in Japan, interestingly enough, it's never been regarded as anything but a potboiler…. The hero is a Kabuki female impersonator out to avenge the death of his parents, and the plot more »

MR. KLEIN

“Mr. Klein…is a cool, elegantly dressed movie…It’s the story of the dandyish Robert Klein (Alain Delon), a successful upper-class entrepreneur whose life in the Nazi-occupied Paris of 1942 is probably not much different than it was before the war, except that he doesn't hesitate to deal in objets d'art being sold by Jewish refug more »

DREAMS

“Grave and witty by turns, Dreams develops into a probing study of the psychology of desire. Susanne (Eva Dahlbeck), head of a modeling agency, takes her protégée Doris (Harriet Andersson) to a fashion show in Göteborg, where Susanne makes contact with a former lover, and Doris finds herself pursued by a married dignitary (Gunna more »

DOLEMITE

“A lasting testament to both rap pioneer / nightclub comic par excellence Rudy Ray Moore and the sun-bleached, smog-covered vistas of ‘70s L.A., Dolemite remains one of blaxploitation’s greatest achievements. more »

THE DEVIL’S EYE

“A seldom-shown, strikingly atypical film by Ingmar Bergman, this is a broad, rather heavy farce in which Don Juan is sent by the devil to seduce that paragon of Swedish respectability, a country parson's daughter. The first part of the film, set in a stylized hell, is a witty, arch symposium on seduction techniques, as Don Juan more »
