The Shootist (1976)

John Wayne's final film role was quiet and dignified, but perfect. He's magnificent, a huge, commanding star, and totally comfortable onscreen. He plays J.B. Books, an aging gunfighter diagnosed with cancer; he just wants to out his own way, but younger gunfighters are after him, looking to outshoot him and gain a little bit of glory in the process. (Famously, Wayne died of cancer in real life three year later.) read more...

Fixed Bayonets! (1951)

Samuel Fuller's second Korean War movie, after the masterpiece The Steel Helmet, also stars Gene Evans as a grizzled sergeant. This time, he's Sgt. Rock, leading a ragtag rear guard through the snowy Korean terrain, attempting to convince the enemy that their numbers are greater than they actually are. Richard Basehart is the Corporal who can't bring himself to fire his weapon and worries how he will lead when his time comes. A handful of dogfaces come to life for brief moments thanks to their vicious, rambunctious dialogue, but even so it's often difficult to tell them apart, especially wearing their heavy snow gear. read more...

Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988)

Though filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola is generally not remembered for anything he made after the 1970s, his Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988) -- co-produced by pal George Lucas -- is one of the best movies about the flip-side of the American Dream. Though it's constructed with more fairy-tale than fact, its bright, shiny, peppy attitude is enough overcome the movie's not-quite resounding, but necessary, conclusion. read more...

White Heat (1949)

White Heat, starring James Cagney, came at the very end of Warner Brothers' gangster cycle, and left all previous films in its dust. Cagney gives an utterly ferocious performance, arguably his finest, as Cody Jarrett, a psychotic gangster with an unholy mother fixation. On the run with his gang after a botched train holdup, Cody's gang threatens to rip itself apart. His gorgeous wife (Virginia Mayo) is just about ready to walk out on him, while an undercover cop (Edmund O'Brien) insinuates himself into Cody's good graces. Every so often, Cody is attacked by one of his searing headaches, and only the touch of his mother (Margaret Wycherly) can relieve him. The film continues at this fever pitch, climaxing during a prison scene that should have won Cagney another Oscar, and culminating with the all-time famous "top o' the world" sequence. read more...

The Big Heat (1953)

The Big Heat is generally recognized as one of Fritz Lang's strongest pictures from his American period. Glenn Ford plays a detective whose wife (Jocelyn Brando) is killed after he pokes his nose too far into a local gangster's business. Lee Marvin co-stars as a nasty thug in charge of funny business and Gloria Grahame all but steals the picture as his smart-aleck girlfriend. The most famous scene has Marvin pitching a pot of hot coffee into Grahame's face, but the most powerful scene shows Ford at home enjoying his family life for a good five minutes before an explosion ends his wife's life -- Lang at his cruelest. read more...
