Pre-2016 Film Reviews
The Grissom Gang
- Excerpt: The Grissom Gang may be one of Robert Aldrich’s lesser films, but there is one scene that he gets absolutely right.
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

- Excerpt: … the equivalent of an R-rated “Flying Circus” episode with nudity, blasphemy, grossout humor, absurdity, and, of course, fish.
- Excerpt: Setting aside the narrative, Clouzot continues what was begun with Inferno with a continued interest in abstract and “experimental” filmmaking as it was expressed in the mid to late 1960s.
Superman: The Movie
- Excerpt: In 1978, the Man of Steel made audiences around the world believe a man could fly in Richard Donner’s Superman, thanks to Christopher Reeve’s iconic-making performance and Gene Hackman’s memorable role as Lex Luther.
