Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949, Robert Hamer)

!!! A+ FILM !!!

It isn’t one single thing that leads disaffected blue-collar Louis Mazzini to start killing estranged members of his mother’s family. As with so many of us, he takes on the dirty proposition of murder somewhat reluctantly, though with a kind of relish when it begins to happen. 1,521 more words

Paris, Texas (1984, Wim Wenders)

!!! A+ FILM !!!

Like a number of major films by European directors in the ’80s — particularly the works of Aki Kaurismaki and Percy Adlon — Wim Wenders’ Paris, Texas reflects a fascination with America from the outside. 1,173 more words

My Review of: The Aviator (12A)

My Review of: The Aviator (12A)

Martin Scorsese is perhaps one of the best directors of all time for creating brilliant drama and fantastic storytelling. In more recent years, his films have grown in scale and intimacy in character relationships and then in 2004, he made a film that everyone could actually go and see and not be 18 or over. 1,278 more words

The Circus (1928, Charles Chaplin)

!!! A+ FILM !!!

Though it seems to have been an extended nightmare to produce thanks to both technical ambitions and interpersonal troubles, Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus is the sort of film that seems to glow with the sheer pleasure of pure creativity. 841 more words
