3:10 to Yuma (1957)

During the 1950s, the Western grew a conscience -- preferring to impart Important Social Messages instead of pure action. High Noon and Shane were the most famous of these, but Delmer Daves' 3:10 to Yuma (1957), based on an Elmore Leonard story, is a scrappier, tenser example. Glenn Ford plays a captured bandit who must be held prisoner -- and hidden from the rest of his gang -- long enough for the 3:10 train to arrive. Van Heflin plays the poor farmer coerced into doing this dirty job. read more...

Platoon (1986)

Writer/director Oliver Stone based his movie on his own experiences and attempted to make a more "realistic" Vietnam movie, simpler and more grounded than things like Apocalypse Now and The Deer Hunter (and more ambitious than the Rambo movies), and he succeeds, truly making this war look like hell. read more...

Army of Shadows (1969)

Jean-Pierre Melville's career represents something of a conundrum, because in Hollywood, we prize "serious" efforts and trivialize "fun" ones. Case in point: nobody suggested even for a second that Ang Lee should win a Best Director Oscar in 2003 for Hulk, but nobody doubted even for a second that he should win in 2005 for Brokeback Mountain, though both films were directed at about the same skill level. read more...

The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

John Frankenheimer's The Manchurian Candidate was released in 1962, disappeared from circulation for several years, and was re-released in 1987. The reasons for its disappearance range from remorse over Kennedy's assassination in 1963 to money disputes with star Frank Sinatra (who owned a good chunk of the film and had it pulled from circulation) -- to both. read more...
