The Invisible Man

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1933)

  • Excerpt: Menace and mirth mix merrily in The Invisible Man, and with a standout vocal performance by Claude Rains in his American film debut, The Invisible Man may not be frightening but moves quickly with special effects that still stand up.

Suffragette

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (2015)

Teorema

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod (1968)

  • Excerpt: Teorema manages the unique trick of seeming both plain-spoken and reticent: it relies heavily on imagery to tell its story, even playing early on as a pastiche of silent cinema in black-and-white absent even title cards. Pasolini conveys his sexual roundelay whilst avoiding any direct depictions of carnality, not that such nimbleness stopped Italian authorities from trying to prosecute him for obscenity.
