Written On The Wind 9/10 In my opinion, Douglas Sirk's finest achievement.

A Bout de Souffle

After reading about how this film was a milestone in cinema history I decided to check it out. But I just couldn't get into it. I believe that this is one of those films you can only enjoy if you saw it in the period it came out. It just seemed kind of messy and overacted to me at some points.

7/10

Not per se. I watched it for the first time about 8 years ago (the UK dvd at the time) and loved it right away. Was my first time I saw a Godard picture,loved his films ever since.

Was never too keen on A Bout de Souffle and I've seen the thing four times!

The Third Man 9.5/10 Gets better every time.

Orpheus 5/5

Manhattan (One of Woody Allen's finest achievements. Both funny and very touching.) 5/5

Nothing Sacred (Anything with the great Carole Lombard is worth a watch.) 4/5

The Most Dangerous Game (Apart from a rather over the top performance by Leslie Banks, still a terrifically suspenseful film. Criterion have done a marvellous restoration.) 4/5

Trouble In Paradise (The great Ernst Lubitsch at his best.) 5/5

Rebecca- Hitchcock again proves why he is the master of suspense. Although I think this film has one of the most overrated twist endings of all time but that is more the fault of the book. I'd give it a 7/10.

Plein soleil with Alain Delon - basically the first version of The Talented Mr Ripley. Delon's performance is terrific. And man, he was young then! Really liked it, so 9/10.

It was his first starring role, and I agree with you, it's an excellent film, far better in my opinion than Minghella's version, which I found slow, dull and completely lacking in tension.

The 39 Steps (1935)

Holds up well for its time but not as good as I remember it being and certainly not one of Hitch's finer efforts- 7/10

The Merry Widow (1934) Ernst Lubitsch's finest musical, with Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald at their sparkling best. Quite risqué for its time.

Island Of Lost Souls (1932) By far the best version of H. G. Wells' Island Of Doctor Moreau, with a chilling performance by Charles Laughton. Once again, Criterion have done a superb restoration job.

Sommarnattens leende (Smiles of A Summer Night)
This film was Bergman`s big international break. After this succes, Svensk Filmindustri gave him carte blanche and so finally he could make his (possibly) best known film: The Seventh Seal.
Where the succes for this films comes from is pretty much a mystery to me. It`s a light film but it couldn`t really satisfy me. For some reason I just couldn`t get into it. The characters weren`t all that interesting, the story is too predictable and (most importantly) too long-winded.
Maybe I just wasn`t in the right mood, maybe it`ll grow on me with repeated viewings.
Whatever the case: for me this was Bergman`s least film I`ve seen so far.

6,5/10


Jungfrukällan (The Virgin Spring)
The tale of a young woman in medieval Sweden who needs to take on a journey through the woods to the church.
Without music and with a pretty simple story Bergman tells a story of faith,fate and revenge in an intense and gripping film that`s beautifully lit and shot. Bergman shows, without shying from anything, with some violent scenes to what Man (and religion?) is capable of.
They are images and scenes that makes you really want to look away but at the same time Bergman forces you to keep watching, images that will haunt you and stay with you long after the film is over.
And so it shows that not always a director`s best known films are his best.

8,8/10

Die 3 Groschen-Oper (The Threepenny Opera)
Fun and light film from G.W. Pabst with, of course, German actors that is set in Victorian London.
It being well acted and having a great story make this into a film that is an easy and entertaining watch. Nothing shocking but not bad at all.

6,8/10

Yesterday after I heard about Lauren Bacall's death, I watched at "Written on the Wind" (1956).
