    ★★

    Justly consigned to the dustbin of history, its only memorable aspect is George Arliss' hideous teeth. Maybe it could have used more songs?

    Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story

    ★★★

    Did we really need two Lance Armstrong documentaries directed by guys named Alex?

    The Crucified Lovers

    ★★★★

    Also known as A Story from Chikamatsu. One of the titles contains a spoiler.

    Virginia City

    ★★★

    These Errol Flynn Westerns all kind of blend together after awhile. They employ much of the same cast, shoot in the same locations, have similar stories, and even the same costumes. They're all amusing, but I wish Flynn would have stretched himself more. He's always confident. He never played a villain; he played rogues, scoundrels and ruffians. In Virginia City, Humphrey Bogart has a small role as a Mexican bandito. He's utterly miscast, but he seems to be the only one operating outside his comfort zone.
