All Fall Down (1962)

By Richard Winters

My Rating: 7 out of 10

4-Word Review: Don’t idolize older brother.

Berry-Berry (Warren Beatty) is the malcontent son of Annabell and Ralph Willart (Angela Lansbury, Karl Malden) who is unable to hold down a steady job, is in constant brushes with the law, and beats up his girlfriends. 595 more words


Hud (1963) - 9/10

Apparently Paul Newman, here playing one of his most unlikeable characters, was upset that audiences still loved him. Hud became an “anti-hero”, despite being nasty throughout, with no real redeeming qualities. 627 more words

Texas Movies: Hud

The 1963 movie Hud has a lot going on. It weaves many different archetypal story elements into a tale that feels specifically small town Texas: the conflicts between generations, morality/social responsibility and selfishness, and physical attraction and restraint; a Job-like tale of an honorable man losing everything; and, a coming of age tale about a boy learning to value character over a carefree lifestyle. 1,196 more words
