JBRR646: “A highly underrated gem. It's personal story has the look and spirit of both F.W. Murnau & Nicholas Ray.”
JBRR646: “A haunting adaptation of Othello. With Shakespeare's words & Welles's visuals, Shakespeare & Welles are kindred spirits.”
JBRR646: “The "most Japanese of all directors" Ozu! Beautiful composition, luscious colors and great fart jokes!”
JBRR646: “Of the eclectic film directors of the Hollywood studio system-era, Curtiz is the best one. This film is one his greatest. Crawford & Blyth are amazing”
JBRR646: “A surreal, maddening rom-com that is a blood-relative to the MGM musicals & CinemaScope-era films. It's subliminal images and context makes this a gem”
JBRR646: “A beautiful and simply-told film from the continent of Africa. It's among the finest sensitive films.”
JBRR646: “A raw Freudian western under the direction of a wonderfully eccentric and energetic director. Like Laughton, it's a shame Brando never directed again”
JBRR646: “Among the greatest satires. As of November 2016, this film is more relevant since it's premiere. It's ending the ultimate cry for peace and humility!!”
JBRR646: “John Huston's sniper-scoped focus on his films is his trademark and none is more clear as this film.”
JBRR646: “A razor sharp satire filled with meticulous militarism details & irreverent sexual innuendo! "We'll meet again! Don't know where, don't know when!"”
JBRR646: “A nocturnal odyssey into the occult & dreams. It's silent scenes are transcendental. Highly, recommend to watch this film as you're falling asleep. ”
JBRR646: “Ray's psychological vivid use of color reflects the post-war/all-Americana world as well as the decay of that illusion. My favorite Nicholas Ray film”
JBRR646: “Originally an Orson Welles project, but Chaplin has created a terrific grim satire on murder/money with a philosophical question on immorality.”
JBRR646: “Lang's debut in the talkies, that haunting whistle can never be topped. German Expressionism/pre-Film Noir at it's finest! & Peter Lorre in his glory!”
JBRR646: “The archetypal 30s Screwball Romantic Comedy.. or any comedy in 30s America.. I mean, Bugs Bunny popular trait was lifted from Clark Gable's character”
JBRR646: “A gothic, whispering dreamlike fairy tale. The case is the secondary character of the film, the mood and atmosphere is the Star of the film!”
JBRR646: “A combination of a surreal sex comedy, a idiosyncratic coming of age story & satire of materialism (or plastics)! And here's to you, Mr. Nichols!”
JBRR646: “Fairy Tales unleash childhood fears and belief of dreams and the impossible and no film captures that magic, except for one film... ”
