  • La Ronde

    La Ronde

    ★★★

    After really quite liking Le Plaisir, I'm back to my usual Ophuls stance with La Ronde; admiring of the elegance but feeling completely uninvolved.

    Although I did enjoy Anton Walbrook. Obviously.

    ★★★★

    A thoughtful, damning look at American capitalism of the mid fifties. Rod Serling's screenplay is enjoyably meaty, and it's always good to see Van Heflin in a lead role.

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★★½

    For my money, Shane Black is the funniest screenwriter alive. This is unwieldy and brilliant.

  • A Perfect Murder

    A Perfect Murder

    ★½

    I don't know how you can watch A Perfect Murder and give two hoots what happens to anyone; they're all so cold and underwritten. That just leaves you with the plot, which gets ever more convoluted the longer the film drags on. 

    I do enjoy Michael Douglas's urbanely evil schtick, but even that isn't enough to stop this being a waste of time.
