Pre-2018 Film Reviews

From Hell It Came

Mark Leeper @ Mark Leeper’s Reviews (1957)

  • Excerpt: The idea of a tribal folklore monster coming to life would not be a bad one, but that is about the only thing that is good about this often genuinely incompetent film.

Nationtime

Sarah Boslaugh @ (1972)

  • Excerpt: Cinematographically, Nationtime is a fairly conventional television documentary, shot in black and white and featuring a voice of God narration read by Sidney Poitier, and mixing footage of featured speakers with shots of the sea of delegates gathered for the convention. It is innovative, however, in the way Greaves mixes poetry by Langston Hughes and Amiri Baraka, read by Harry Belafonte, just as the convention itself combined musical performances with speeches and political discussions.

The Tower

Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight (2013)
