Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier
- Excerpt: This movie is trying so hard to be like its big brother “Taxi Driver” that it’s embarrassing to watch at times; it has a certain grotty charm and good performances, but needs a huge wallop of subtlety.
More Than a Miracle
- Excerpt: Esteemed director Francesco Rosi is much better when his camera is more tightly focused on the real world. Here he just fumbles to find the right tone, and thus wastes the tremendous talent of his lead actress.
Nine Days of One Year
Queen of Outer Space
Santo vs Las Mujeras Vampiro
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
- Excerpt: Shatner may have overreached, but in retrospect, the movie’s box-office failure may have had less to do with its ambitions than with the sizable amount of competition it faced in theaters, having opened two weeks after LAST CRUSADE and two weeks before the Tim Burton behemoth that would carry away most of America on the waves of Batmania. It never even had a chance.
