  • The Declaration Of Independence

    The Declaration Of Independence 1938

    ★★ Watched 13 Oct, 2016

    The neglected Crane Wilbur (Canon City, The Story of Molly X) actually won an Oscar for this illustrated textbook chapter. Dully competent.

  • Saturn 3

    Saturn 3 1980

    ★★★ Watched 13 Aug, 2016 1

    Potent, high-grade space schlock. An Alien rip-off conceived by Star Wars / A Clockwork Orange production designer John Barry (replaced by Stanley Donen as director early in the shoot) and scripted by Martin Amis. Feels more like a 1960s sci-fi novel than anything else that came out of the early ‘80s gold rush. Features a dubbed Harvey Keitel and a stoned, naked Kirk Douglas.

    No one's written the Great American Novel yet, but James Gray went ahead and made a movie out of it anyway.

  • The Assassin

    The Assassin 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 20 May, 2015 1

    Simply gorgeous. Takes wuxia, the most over-played genre in Chinese film, and makes it seem completely alien without subverting any of its gestures or values.
