Reviews of Classic Films

Dead Bang

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

Eden and After

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Fairly summarized as ‘Alice in Wonderland’ meets ‘Justine’ meets ‘The Trip,’ ‘Eden and After’ is what happens when a dyed-in-the-wool Surrealist (and unrepentant bondage fetishist) makes an acid movie for the collegiate set, composing the experimental script on principles analogous to the serial music of Pierre Boulez.

The Gypsy Moths

Les Enfants Terribles

My Dinner with Andre

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: It’s more accessible than it sounds. And, if you engage with it, it’s also more dramatic than it sounds.

Touch of Evil

Jonathan Richards @ www.jonrichardsplace.com

  • Excerpt: Just a touch? Why so modest? Orson Welles is pure evil in this classic noir thriller, which showcases him as screenwriter, director, and star of a border tale drenched in sleaze, corruption, betrayal, and murder.

Westworld

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod

  • Excerpt: Westworld feels like the birth of something, perhaps the modern science-fiction action film itself.
