    The Night Evelyn Came out of the Grave

    ★★★

    EVELYN is a stylish Giallo with gothic and supernatural elements.  Despite being rather silly overall, it is colorful, well-directed, and never boring.  It may be a guilty pleasure, but it is a pleasure nonetheless.

  • Woman on the Run

    Woman on the Run

    ★★★★

    This nearly lost noir is witty, dark, deliciously snide, and genuinely exciting.  Ann Sheridan plays a woman whose estranged husband disappears after witnessing a murder.  Can she find him before the killer or police do, and does she even care?  Thanks to the restoration by the UCLA Film Archive and The Film Noir Foundation, we can still find out.

    ★★★

    The feature film debut of Key & Peele is a sporadically hilarious action comedy, co-starring the cutest kitten on the face of the Earth.  While parts are stronger than the whole, this is a very promising debut from the likeable pair.  Hopefully, many more movies are to come.

    ★★★★★

    The best mysteries aren't about the mystery.  They're about ideas, mood, and, most of all, strong characters.  CUTTER'S WAY is not only a great neo-noir mystery, it is a under-seen masterpiece.  Bone (Jeff Bridges) is a unmotivated gigolo who accidentally witnesses the dumping of a dead body.  When he tells his best friend Cutter (John Heard, in a career-best performance), a one-eyed, one-armed, one-legged Vietnam vet, that he thinks that a powerful oil man committed the crime, the antagonistic veteran sees it as his opportunity to take down "the man."  Great writing, acting, music, and cinematography combine to make CUTTER'S WAY a unforgettable experience.
