Lola Montès (1955)

Note: Lola Montes is touring revival theaters in 2008 in a gorgeous new print from Rialto Pictures. It opens in San Francisco's Castro Theater on November 19. I wrote the following review in 1999, based on a video version I'd seen. I'll let this review stand, and add some new notes afterward. I'm also raising my score from 2-1/2 stars to 4 stars. read more...

Chinatown (1974)

If Chinatown were made today, it would open instead with Gittes in the act of taking the photos of the guilty couple. He would accidentally make a noise and be noticed. He would run away, jump in his car and tear down the streets of Los Angeles, followed by another car whose occupants would be firing guns at him. He would drive on the sidewalk, knocking over a fruit cart, and maybe taking out a fire hydrant, showering innocent passersby with a stream of water. This would all happen during the opening credits and would be done with shaky cameras and about 2000 cuts. read more...

The Godfather (1972)

From our vantage point today, it's hard to imagine The Godfather becoming the highest grossing movie in the world, as it did in 1972. It seems too thoughtful for today's standards. But it is one of the greatest pictures ever made and one of the very few Best Picture Oscar winners that actually deserved the award. read more...

The Ghost Writer (2010)

Based on a 2007 novel by Robert Harris, The Ghost Writer may be, at its core, just a standard issue thriller. But as directed by old master Roman Polanski, it turns into cinema of the highest order. And it's important to remember that Polanski's earlier films -- much like Fritz Lang's during his Hollywood period -- were mostly dime-store thrillers of a similar nature (Knife in the Water, Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, The Tenant, etc.); it's just that time has turned them into classics. This new movie will undoubtedly share the same fate. read more...
