Persona   1/26/18
by mark f
The film goes out of its way to tell you that it's a movie, but immediately the viewer seems to be confused, if not at what is being shown, then why it's being shown and what its meaning is.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre   1/17/18
by mark f
I watched Sierra Madre many times as a teen and it's probably the one movie which made me such a humongous Bogie and John Huston fan.

The Trouble with Harry   1/03/18
by mark f
This is not only the first Hitchcock film with a Bernard Herrmann score, but it's also MacLaine's film debut and an early flick for the boy (Jerry Mathers, the Beave from "Leave it to Beaver") who plays her son and steals all his scenes.

Faust   1/02/18
by mark f
The second half of the film which tells how Faust falls a bit short in his purity is entertaining but not as mesmerizing as the earlier scenes.

The Wolfman   1/02/18
by mark f
flick was so short and direct, but this film, at least in its longer version, has several added plot twists which the original never considered, and besides that, the original isn't really that good of a film(!) Although this Wolfman has the brooding Lawrence Talbot as a Shakespearean actor, it's surprising how well Benicio Del Toro fits the role of an Englishman, and there is a palpable heat which slowly develops between him and the fiancee (Emily Blunt) of his dead brother.

The Buddy Holly Story   1/02/18
by mark f
The Buddy Holly Story actually ranks as one of the very best films about the birth of rock 'n roll [if not the most accurate] to this day, and it may well take a very long time for another film to ever touch its heartfelt depiction of the 1950s when all races could actually come together over the music; at least if you were young enough and wanted to piss off your parents.

Alice in Wonderland   1/02/18

Alice in Wonderland (Clyde Geronomi, Wilfred Jackson, Hamilton Luske, 1951) (mafo MoFo Top 100 Film)

The Delinquents   1/02/18
by mark f
In general, the film operates on a higher technical and acting level than those of Wood, and it's reasonably watchable despite the overlit interior and exterior scenes.

One, Two, Three   1/02/18
by mark f
One, Two, Three (Billy Wilder, 1961) (mafo MoFo Top 100 Film)

Miss Julie   1/02/18
by mark f
Mullan plays the more-enigmatic Jean and finds a middle ground for him because you're never really sure if he's just being a bastard or truly cares for Miss Julie and is trapped outside his class and will never be able to rise above it.
