The Sheik (1921)

Though definitely recommended, Rudolph Valentino's most famous pair of movies, The Sheik (1921) and The Son of the Sheik (1926), probably don't hold up today as well as other classic silent-era films do. In addition to their slightly yucky storylines, Valentino's legendary star quality hasn't aged as beautifully as one might have thought. His acting style is pretty big by today's standards (he bugs out his eyes and flares his nostrils a lot), but he really did have that extraordinary charisma, that huge sex appeal, that everyone talks about. His olive skin and heavy-lidded eyes as well as a certain unnamable something make him easy to watch. read more...

The Sign of the Cross (1932)

This early, pre-code Cecil B. DeMille spectacular is famous for pretending to be a religious epic, while actually being full of sex and violence. Claudette Colbert is the standout as the sexy, conniving Empress Poppaea, seen bathing (apparently naked, just below the surface) in a huge pool of milk, and being fanned by servants while a leopard lounges nearby. And Charles Laughton steals his scenes as a smug, ruthless Nero, who burns Rome and blames it on the Christians. (He reminded me of Donald Trump.) But unfortunately, the story focuses on duller characters. Fredric March — who won an Oscar the same year for his amazing performance in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde — plays Marcus Superbus, Prefect of Rome, in charge of arresting and torturing Christians. During a fracas in the street in which two men are discovered as Christians, Mercia (Elissa Landi) tries to protect them. Marcus falls in love with her, and begins neglecting his duties while trying to track her down again. Eventually, of course, he must decide between the girl and his job. DeMille shows all kinds of incredible torture sequences, including a woman tied to a pole and threatened by a gorilla! The movie received an Oscar nomination for its Cinematography. read more...

The Exception (2017)

This quasi-biographical drama could have been a dry-as-a-bone history lesson, filled with exposition and explanation, but instead it turns into a glossy romance; it's soft, but ripe and full-blooded. read more...

Labor Day (2013)

There's nothing really wrong with the idea of Labor Day. It comes from a reputable novel, a reputable director, and a reputable cast. On another day, they -- or someone -- could have made something terrific out of it. But what was actually made and being released in theaters is a total misfire. It's OK in some spots, and appallingly awful in other spots. It's as if the filmmakers started digging in a particular direction, perhaps realized their error, but decided it was too late and kept on digging. read more...

Tuscaloosa (2020)

Based on a 1994 novel by W. Glasgow Phillips, this drama tries to achieve a novel's depth and breadth, and while many facets feel inevitably short-changed, much of it is still powerfully engaging. read more...
