First Man (Damien Chazelle, 2018) 8/10 The American Space Program and the race with Russia to be the first to reach space is told from the perspective of the man who ended up being the first man to walk on the moon. Chazelle's film is an exhilarating ride as it traces the period 1962-69 covering the...

Hud (Martin Ritt, 1963) 10/10 Elegiac modern Western, set in dusty Texas, is part family conflict and part mourning for the old ways of the frontier days. The brilliant screenplay (based on a novel by Larry McMurtry) incorporates in an almost greek tragedy fashion a simmering tension ridden relation...

Rogues' Regiment (Robert Florey, 1948) 6/10 The screenplay is a potpourri of different elements consisting of a post WW-II man hunt for a Nazi war criminal set during the Indo-China war with a mix of nationalities joining the French Foreign Legion for a lot of noirish cloak and dagger action. The st...

Re: Green Book reviews

Olivia Colman being campaigned for lead and Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz in support for The Favourite is a rare exception. Oh is this how the studios are going with their campaign? If so, then the studio just lost their chance to win an Oscar for this film. Colman has no chance of winning in the lea...

Re: European trip

Well, I must admit London exceeded my expectations. I had been moaning when my partner planned and mapped out the trip that I didn't want to visit London, but I'm so glad we did and I would love to go back. We caught buses around mainly so me could get a good eyeful of the city and rarely used the ...

The Wife (Björn Runge, 2018) 6/10 The long and happy married life between a successful writer (Jonathan Pryce) and his wife (Glenn Close) is gradually revealed to have long-gestating cracks. Simmering just below the surface of a well kept facade is a marriage of inequality, rampant infidelity, secre...

Happy Together (Wong Kar-Wai, 1997) 10/10 From a director who is known for his swooningly romantic films comes this devastating story about the breakup of a relationship shot in an energetic and intense style. The film is visually eye popping, shot by the brilliant Christopher Doyle in stark black a...

La Ley del Deseo / Law of Desire (Pedro Almodovar, 1987) 6/10 Flamboyant but rather erratic film has the director's usual grotesque yet very human characters entwined in a mesh of sex and longing. The penchant to shock is evident in the film's opening as a young man is directed (in a film) to strip ...

Leslie Phillips is amusing as a womanizing cad who sells him the car and is competition for the girl...

A Star is Born (Bradley Cooper, 2018) 3/10 Does the world really need yet another remake of this old chestnut? After all there have been versions of this story in 1932, 1937, 1954, 1973 (Bollywood) and 1976. Not sure about the world but Hollywood certainly needs another version because it knows that...

to the ludicrous take on old ladies called Book Club that to my horror I've discovered some little old ladies actually like. Ludicrous? Yes, the plot certainly is. But where else can you see so many famous female stars together on screen? That's the reason why some have liked it. So many older actr...

Re: At Eternity's Gate reviews

The picture looks photoshopped. Either that that or Fonda has had more surgery than she admits to. She looks more anorexic than well-conditioned in the film. Candice Bergen is the only one who resembles a real-life character in this thing. Candice Bergen easily had the most interesting role in the ...
