    Blue Spring

    ★★★★

    Kujo, Aoki and their high school pals play a fun game that involves standing on the edge of a five- or six-story building while holding onto a railing, releasing their hands from the railing and counting the number of times they can clap before grasping onto the railing again, naming the student who successfully claps the most times boss of the school.

    If you think that's risk-seeking behavior, you should have seen the mischief my crew and I got up…

    The Wrong Man

    ★★★½

    Manny Balestrero (Henry Fonda) is falsely accused of being the perpetrator of a series of armed robberies, and both the NYPD and the witnesses they collect seem to be determined to violate his rights and outright lie to put him away.

    It's a solid film about mistaken identity, the fragility of memory, persecution and police incompetence, but this is one of the few Hitchcocks I can say might actually benefit from a remake. The mental breakdown of Balestrero's wife Rose…

    ★★★

    Admittedly, I enjoy pro wrestling and know a decent amount about the history of the industry and about the Von Erichs, so my expectations for The Iron Claw may have been a bit different than the average non-wrestling fan's.

    The Long Good Friday

    ★★★½

    British crime lord Harold Shand (Bob Hoskins) finds himself dealing with multiple bombings of his properties and the murders of his cohorts as he works to close a major property deal with the American mafia.

    Most of the film is a slow burn, which doesn't always serve the genre, but the final act really picks up the pace and it closes strong.

    Probably could have used a bit more Bob Hoskins screaming angrily at people, since he's great at that.
