  • L.A. Takedown 1989

    ★★½ Rewatched 03 Aug, 2014

    Mann's weakest mature work—a camera rehearsal for Heat, with stand-ins in place of actors. Contains about a dozen great shots, and quite a few bad ones.

  • The Seafarers 1953

    ★★½ Watched 11 Jun, 2014

    "Joseph Conrad wrote, uh, a lot of things about the sea, and, among other things, he wrote this..."

    Typically stilted, mesmerizingly boring specimen from the the golden age of industrial filmmaking, distinguished from a thousand other similar films only by a handful of low angles and reverse tracking shots.
