    I’m not an apologist for Elia Kazan and this is a very reactionary film, but god damn is it well made.

    Another film from Republic Pictures. From my understanding they were considered the higher end poverty row studio. Federal Man-Hunt wasn’t visually audacious by any means of the word, but it had its effective moments. Specifically the first car chase scene comes to mind. When it comes to the movie ending one gets the sense that the filmmakers really just wanted to wrap production.

    I’m curious to watch some of the early Monogram and other Povertry Row outfits' films to see how they compare.

    Country #5 - Greece

    I'm not sure I even know where to start with this movie. I'll just say this is a movie that I feel probably works best if you go into it blind. I skimmed the Netflix synopsis and that was the only knowledge of the film I had before I watched it. As disturbing as it is; there is just no way…

    I feel like Al Pacino made this simply so he could get Jessica Chastain to dance for him.
