  1. Finally got around to watching this. FABULOUS! For some reason I knew this was gonna be good and it didn't let me down. First off, the cast was fantastic. It starts with my favorite French Actress ( who is gorgeous) Simone Signoret. Jean Louis Trintignant and Yves Montand headline a fabulous cast. Next, the crazy good plot was made even better by fantastic cinematography and musical scoring. Everything was very good here. The fast paced and VERY nuanced plot was the obvious centerpiece. It was VERY well done and directed. It lost me in a LOT of places, but you were still able to f
  2. Gave this a watch. Milan was good as usual. The comedy was good. When Corbucci is good, he is fantastic. This was just average as a whole. It has its moments.
  3. Gonna look at this. Thanx...
  4. That was a thorough review Cigarjoe. I need to get back over to this board more. Good write up on my favorite Western.
  5. Wayne gave his audience what they wanted? YOU said this. Not me... https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-the-searchers-1956 A cover story inNew Yorkmagazine called it the most influential movie in American history. And yet at its center is a difficult question, because the Wayne character is racist without apology--and so, in a less outspoken way, are the other white characters. Is the film intended to endorse their attitudes, or to dramatize and regret them? Today we see it through enlightened eyes, but in 1956 many audiences accepted its harsh view of Indians.
  6. So it appears that Wayne had VARIOUS character flaws. Hypocrisy being one of them.
  7. Thanks. Thats the movie he made with Poitier.
  8. John Wayne for instance, made movies that paralled what his character REALLY is. Widmark is a example of a man who made a POINT to seperate art from life because he didn't want it misconstrued that the art was who he really is. John Wayne NEVER did that...
  9. I disagree. Richard Widmark made a film with Sidney Poitier in which Widmark played a racist. It bothered him so badly that he literally apologized to Poitier and they became best friends in real life. You can try and separate art, but you can't separate who you are.
  10. Basil Dearden is one of my favorite directors. He takes on subject matter that most directors wouldn't touch AND makes great films while he is doing it. I reviewed this film somewhere, either here or over at Sergio Leone Board. Its a great entry in his catalog. Very good post...
  11. I will revist this. A rushed list... 1. Night of the Hunter. ( Hard to classify this one but it has noir elements) 2. Scarlet Street 3. Woman in the Window 4. Double Indemnity 5. Strangers on a Train 6. Too Late for Tears 7. Sunset Boulevard 8. Tension
  12. Fantastic noir. I would have rated it a masterpiece if the ending didn't happen the way it did. I'm also not a fan of a director having key parts of a plot happen off screen...
  13. I've seen Villa Rides ( Yul Brenner). Thats pretty good. Red Sun and Pancho Villa look interesting. WHAT is Alain Delon doing in Red Sun? lol
