The Girl Who Knew Too Much
Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico (1963) [Portuguese]
It Happened One Night
- Excerpt: In 1934’s It Happened One Night, legendary director Frank Capra helped birth one of the most popular sub-genres of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The film is arguably one of, if not the, first examples of the screwball comedy.
- Excerpt: …works as a schizophrenic character study rather than a typical mystery or procedural—and it works exceptionally well.
Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico (1929) [Portuguese]
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
- Excerpt: In the world of revolutionary computer animation – exemplified by something like Toy Story 4, another Disney property – you might expect the almost century old hand-drawn cel animation to look quaint. Nothing could be further from the truth.
When a Woman Ascends The Stairs
Tynan Yanaga @ Film Inquiry (1960)
- Excerpt: Far from being moth-balled and prosaic, When a Woman Ascends The Stairs beats with the most devastating of lifebloods. If it’s steadfastly Japanese, then it’s equally universal.
