Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier

Action in the North Atlantic

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod

  • Excerpt: Blockbuster action, 1943 style.

Bwana Devil

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

Cast a Giant Shadow

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: A timely release given recent events in Gaza, the 1966 war movie Cast a Giant Shadow takes us back to the early days of Israel’s quest for sovereignty. Written and directed by Melville Shavelson (Yours, Mine & Ours), the film is both quaint and illuminating. It’s also a little bit depressing, in that it reminds us how long there has actually been conflict in the Middle East and how much of the fight has fundamentally been over the same things.

Grand Prix

Roderick Heath @ Ferdy on Films

  • Excerpt: Grand Prix is most famous for its technical achievements over and above its human side, and whilst as I’ve noted that’s not entirely justified, what is certain is that Frankenheimer’s work with Bass, supervising editor Frederic Steinkamp, and DP Lionel Lindon succeeded in creating a new kind of sports film.
