A quiet, modest film which successfully communicates thematic ambition far beyond what most filmmakers could conceive as possible.

Poster for Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

8.0

Only worth watching for its performances, and even then only barely.

Poster for The Beguiled

The Beguiled

8.0

2017, Drama, Western

If you can accept the slow-as-molasses pace early on, The Beguiled is a truly beguiling piece of artistically-crafted entertainment.

Poster for The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

7.0

1953, Fantasy, Music

The film’s not entirely successful but it’s so wildly unusual that it has to be experienced.

2017.07.28

Poster for Dunkirk

Dunkirk

8.0

2017, Drama, Action, History, Suspense, War

The pacing is faultless, the evocation of the horror of war is truly disturbing despite the lack of overt Saving Private Ryan-style gore.

Stormy Monday

Poster for Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

5.0

1977, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction

The dullest and tattiest of the three movies, despite having been made on a considerably higher budget.

2017.07.19

Poster for The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

8.0

1973, Adventure, Fantasy, Drama, Action

This one improves on The 7th Voyage in some aspects, but is slightly weaker in others.

Poster for The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

8.0

1958, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

The acting is somewhat hammy, but the plot is well-constructed and the characters’ actions have believable consequences.
