Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1956)

A Face in the Crowd

Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1957)

The Girl Who Knew Too Much

Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico (1963) [Portuguese]

It Happened One Night

Josh Taylor @ (1934)

  • Excerpt: In 1934’s It Happened One Night, legendary director Frank Capra helped birth one of the most popular sub-genres of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The film is arguably one of, if not the, first examples of the screwball comedy.

Mad Detective

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies (2007)

  • Excerpt: …works as a schizophrenic character study rather than a typical mystery or procedural—and it works exceptionally well.

The Manxman

Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico (1929) [Portuguese]

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Josh Taylor @ (1937)

  • Excerpt: In the world of revolutionary computer animation – exemplified by something like Toy Story 4, another Disney property – you might expect the almost century old hand-drawn cel animation to look quaint. Nothing could be further from the truth.

When a Woman Ascends The Stairs

Tynan Yanaga @ Film Inquiry (1960)

  • Excerpt: Far from being moth-balled and prosaic, When a Woman Ascends The Stairs beats with the most devastating of lifebloods. If it’s steadfastly Japanese, then it’s equally universal.

Wild River

Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1960)
