UNDERWORLD U.S.A.

“Sam Fuller's harsh, obsessional 1960 crime drama is narrated in the style of a comic book gone berserk. Cliff Robertson is the neurotic hero, bent on avenging his father's death by infiltrating and destroying a crime syndicate that operates under the redolent name ‘National Projects.’ Corruption is all-pervasive in this vision more »

L’ATALANTE

“…One of the supreme masterpieces of French cinema… The simple love-story plot involves the marriage of a provincial woman to the skipper of a barge…The sensuality of the characters and the settings, indelibly caught in Boris Kaufman's glistening cinematography, are only part of the film's remarkable poetry….The film is so fully more »

CHINATOWN

“…This stylish 1974 whodunit stars Jack Nicholson (never better) and Faye Dunaway (likewise). A bit abstract, though gorgeously shot (by John Alonzo) and cleverly plotted (by Robert Towne), Polanski's film suggests that the rules of the game are written in some strange, untranslatable language, and that everyone's an alien and, more »

EDOUARD AND CAROLINE

“Pianist Edouard and his wife Caroline are expected at her uncle's house for a party, but a series of sartorial choices land them in an evening-long argument that threatens to derail Edouard's plans to wow his uncle-in-law's fancy guests with his musical skills.” more »

SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT

“Bergman's first major success…this enchanting comedy of manners assembles a team of couples, ex-couples and would-be couples, and puts them through their paces in a game of love at a country house party during one heady midsummer weekend in 1900. Ruthless towards its characters' amorous pretensions, but extending a kind of iron more »

WANDA

“…A subtly picaresque movie about the wanderings of a semi-destitute American woman. Directing herself, Barbara Loden manages to make the character at once completely convincing in her soggy and directionless amorality, yet gradually sympathetic and even heroic. After a desultory involvement with a bank robber, to whom she becom more »

GRAND ILLUSION

”Restored and as relevant as ever, Jean Renoir’s 1937 masterpiece, La Grande Illusion, is a film about common values and decency – the ability in all of us to act with respect and warmth towards those with whom we share bonds stronger and deeper than national boundaries and political divisions. If all that sounds cosy – which, p more »

THE SEVENTH SEAL

“Max von Sydow and Gunnar Björnstrand are the ascetic Crusader knight and his cynical squire who return from the wars after 10 years to find their country ravaged with plague and the population panicking about the coming apocalypse. The knight is confronted by the cowled figure of Death, who agrees to a game of chess, and lets t more »

PLAYTIME

“French actor-filmmaker Jacques Tati’s 1967 masterpiece still holds up as a feast of subtle sight gags, playful noise and, above all, visual wonders. Tati’s pipe-smoking alter ego Monsieur Hulot (as seen in Mon Oncle and Mr Hulot’s Holiday) takes a back seat here to the director’s intricate, extraordinary and very expensive reco more »

CASQUE D’OR

”A radiant Simone Signoret dominates Jacques Becker's 1952 film, which is based on a Paris underworld incident of 1898 that is, in some ways, the French parallel to the legend of Frankie and Johnny. Becker emphasized atmospherics at the expense of psychology, which outraged the literary critics of the time and impressed the youn more »

SENSO

“Aptly titled — a lush, melodramatic portrait of seduction and betrayal, decadence and deceit in the midst of Italy's resistance to Austrian occupation in the mid-19th century, revealing Luchino Visconti at his most baroque and the Italian cinema at its most spectacular (1953). A fine tragic performance by Alida Valli and surpri more »

THE HITCH-HIKER

“…Two men on a fishing trip pick up a mass-murdering (hitch-hiker), and are forced at gunpoint to drive him through Mexico until the fatal moment when he no longer needs them. Absolutely assured in her creation of the bleak, noir atmosphere - whether in the claustrophobic confines of the car, or lost in the arid expanses of the more »
