    Valdez Is Coming (1971)

    Burt Lancaster is quite good in the title role in Valdez Is Coming, although here in 2018, it's the kind of role that would raise hackles; why did it have to be played by a white actor, when it's a perfectly good role for a Latino actor? In any case, with a story by Elmore Leonard, the movie has its good points, notably its intriguingly gray-area setup. A rich white landowner has a black man trapped in a cabin. He claims the black man has committed some crime. Valdez goes to the cabin to speak to him, and it's confirmed that he is, in fact, not guilty. But one of the landowner's nasty henchman has crept up behind Valdez with a gun. The black man sees this, thinks he has been double-crossed, and attacks Valdez. Valdez shoots and kills the man. It's clearly not his fault, but he did pull the trigger. read more...

      Appointment with Danger (1951)

      Olive Films has happily ended up with a whole bunch of Paramount's back catalog titles, and even if none of them (so far) are terribly major films, it's good to have them around. read more...

        The Naked Dawn (1955)

        The Naked Dawn is Edgar G. Ulmer's only credited Western, and one of his best films. Arthur Kennedy stars as Mexican bandit Santiago, who loses his longtime partner after a routine train robbery goes awry. He stumbles upon the pretty Maria (Betta St. John), homesteading with her new husband Manuel (Eugene Iglesias). Santiago charms them both, rents Manuel's truck, and convinces Manuel to help him sell the stolen goods. After a night of drinking, the two men stumble back home, where Maria has decided that she would rather run off with the exciting Santiago rather than stay with her abusive husband. Shooting in Technicolor, the great "B" movie expert Ulmer makes remarkable use of his frame, notably in the cantina sequence, where the drinking and dancing and decorations begin to swirl together into a dreamlike reverie. (Performer Charlita sings an upbeat song called "Ai Hombre.") In the simple farmer's house, Ulmer films in long takes, with stunning, subtle camera movements to illustrate the physical relationships between the trio. The few action sequences, including the train robbery and a sudden rattlesnake attack, are done with Ulmer's usual economy, swiftness, and brilliance. The result is unexpectedly moving. Upon seeing this, Francois Truffaut was inspired to make Jules and Jim. read more...

          The Halliday Brand (1957)

          Joseph H. Lewis was, more often than not, a "B" movie maker. But his intelligence, skill, and instinct were quite above average. Just as he made Gun Crazy (1949) into a psychosexual masterpiece, he likewise makes The Halliday Brand into something more than a workaday Western. Here there are no good guys or bad guys, just a horrible, quasi-Oedipal, lifelong feud between a hard-headed father and a forward-thinking son. read more...

            Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)

            Sicario: Day of the Soldado — the follow-up to 2015's Sicario — is rather unexpected for a sequel. It's a pessimistic, grownup film, and not exactly pop entertainment. read more...
