How about, Damien, instead of ridiculing me, which has seemingly been your favorite activity these past few months (and thus the source of my curiousity into why certain people are cruel and enjoy humiliating other people), how about elucidating your reasons why Au Hasard, Balthazar is a worthy fil...

Au Hasard, Balthazar (1966; Robert Bresson) 1/10 Pretentious, dull, horribly acted religious fable. At least François Lafarge in his tight pants is nice to look at. Yeah, I didn't care for it either. Is it your first Bresson? If it is, don't let it deter you. Yes, it was. It wasn't so much Bresson ...

Valentino (1977; Ken Russell) 7/10 Yeah, this wasn't the real Valentino, but it was entertaining enough and I also thought that, for the first time, the masochistic nature of Russell's films actually made you feel for the "victim." Maybe it was the casting of Rudolf Nureyev, who was charismatic but...

Are the reviews for A Serious Man really that superlative? I'll admit I haven't bothered to look in the thread because the trailer made the movie look as appealing as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Star! (1968; Robert Wise) 3/10

Dull, overblown biography of Gertrude Lawrence (Julie Andrews, in one of her least interesting performances). The epitome of bad late 1960s musicals.

The Best Way to Walk (1976; Claude Miller) 7.5/10 At a boys summer camp in 1960, two counselors (Patrick Dewaere, Patrick Bouchitey) become involved in a tense game of humilation and desire. Even at 86 minutes, it's still perhaps a little too lengthy, but also still very involving, especially thank...

This is going to sound a bit curt, but the most interesting residue of this series, for me, is discovering just how differently straight and gay men view/process/appraise female performances. I haven't agreed with the people I usually agree with on movies in their totality less often than I have ru...

Crossfire (1947; Edward Dmytryk) 8/10 Taut, interesting combo of noir thriller and earnest social drama as police detective Robert Young investigates a hate crime. Richard Brooks' novel was original about the killing of a gay man, but RKO changed it to the killing of a Jewish man; yet, the film ret...

I'm curious to know on what planet is John Kerr in Tea & Sympathy considered a Supporting performance or Helen Hayes in Anastasia considered a Lead performance?
