Crossfire (1947) - 5/10. Beats me why some people like this film. It's just a lot of talk, and not very interesting talk at that. Robert Ryan gives a great performance, of course, but he isn't playing a very interesting character. There are no interesting characters in the film at all; even Mitchum here is just a collection of surly lines. Some say this is a film noir, but it's really just a civics lesson told by typically anodyne Robert Young. The new blu-ray, though, sure looks nice.

The civics speech by Young may be the one bad part of the movie. This is an 8/10

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

"All Good Now" 2010, rate 6/10.  Based on the Durst murder/disappearance.  Kirsten Dunst was good, so was Ryan Gosling.

My Cousin Rachel (1952) - 10/10. Wow, an early 50s film filled with both kink and ambiguity (though there is no ambiguity about the kink). Richard Burton (quite young here) does his usual ham routine, but it really works, contrasting well with Olivia de Havilland's underplaying. I've never read the novel, but I'm guessing Daphne du Maurier was going for gothic meets Henry James. What fun. And nice to see California playing once again the rocky coast of Cornwall.
