    Strangely affecting account of a man who was found a chasm in which to pour his heart and soul.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story


    Not a comedic bone in it's body although the script attempts hilarity and social commentary with little success. In spite of the masses reservations Alden acquitted himself quite well with a performance that would never satisfy but eschewed outright impersonation.

    Magnificent. The first and last word in prison escape movies. The existential Great Escape.

    The Ipcress File


    Excellent circus flick. Worth watching as companion piece to Tinker Talior Soldier Spy. Caine is believable as a reluctant agent with an insatiable curiosity. The Ken Adam design is as sublime as it is economic. One of the best espionage movies ever made. Not a spy film.
