Pre-2018 Film Reviews

Gone with the Wind

Emanuel Levy @ EmanuelLevy.com (1939)

  • Excerpt: Gone With the Wind swept the 1939 Oscars, becoming one of the most popular movies ever made. Is the movie racist? kitsch? influential? enjoyable?

Gone with the Wind

Josh Taylor @ www.forgetfulfilmcritic.com (1939)

  • Excerpt: The actual production value of the film is its only saving grace. Gone with the Wind is unquestionably a work of art made with considerable talent and quality, but the film is vile and insidious in how it depicts race, the Civil War, and slavery in the Old South.

How Green Was My Valley

Emanuel Levy @ EmanuelLevy.com (1941)

  • Excerpt: Politics, both within and without determined why John Ford’s How Green Was My Valley won the 1941 Best Picture Oscar and why Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane was snubbed

Pitch Perfect 2

Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight (2015)

Rebecca

Emanuel Levy @ EmanuelLevy.com (1940)

  • Excerpt: Rebecca, the Best Picture Oscar of 1940 is the only Hitchcock movie to win the top award and only one of few thrillers to achieve that (the genre not prestigious enough among Academy voters)
