The Chase - 5-6/10
Huh, I always remember this as a pretty good film. Robert Cummings is a bit of a nut, and the long sequence that turns out to be a dream is a cheat, but Michèle Morgan is lovely and Steve Cochran was never better. Love that gag with the extra accelerator in the back seat! Or maybe we're talking about different films? Mine came out in 1946. Which one are you talking about?

I think whatever film you're talking about predates Brando's acting career.

The Chase - 5-6/10 -

If you take it as a phylosophy/sociology movie it deserve that rating. If you take it as an atmospher movie about characters it deserves 10 out of 10...

Another Best of British weekend:

The Upturned Glass (1947) 7/10. A lecturing neurosurgeon (James Mason) relates the case history of a man driven to murder after his Brief Encounter ends in tragedy. In flashback we see that the doctor is telling his own story. Yet when the lecture has finished we also realize the murder, so meticulously explained, remains to be done. And off the doctor goes! In the event, of course, little happens as planned, but the complications are quite ingenious. Mason is a tonic. The ending, though, leaves a lot to be desired.

The Seventh Veil
(1945) 6/10. A concert pianist (Ann Todd) attempts suicide, and in order to discover the reason for her discontent, a psychoanalyst (Herbert Lom) begins treating her under narco-hypnosis. Cue the flashbacks. Turns out, her icy guardian (James Mason, once more in Charming Swine mode) has given her a complex or two. Can the doctor get to the bottom of her phobias in time to get her back on stage? And will the audience be able to sit through all the interminable concert performances? Well, Todd trained for three months to be able to play credibly and I guess the producers wanted to show the public what they'd got for their money. A huge hit at the time, apparently it remains the #10 film in terms of UK boxoffice. It has an ending that is so wrong it will take your breath away.

The Queen of Spades (1949) 8/10. From a Pushkin story: a Russian Captain of Engineers (Anton Walbrook, sans mustache), obsessed with St. Petersburg's 19th Century faro craze, learns of an aristocratic old woman (Dame Edith Evans, in her first film role--at the age of 60!) who, through occult means, knows the Secret of the Cards. To get to her, the Captain begins romancing the woman's innocent young ward. Yes, it will all end in tears. A film by Thorold Dickinson (whose best known picture is probably the original Gaslight), it is visually sumptuous and has, for its time, an amazing sound design. Orson Welles must have wished he'd made it.

Father Brown, The Detective (1954) 10/10. Second viewing. A cleric (Alec Guinness) who is also an amateur detective, pursues and eventually tames the art thief Flambeau (Peter Finch). A highly authentic distillation of G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown stories, with support provided by Joan Greenwood and Bernard Lee. Robert Hamer's masterpiece is undoubtedly Kind Hearts and Coronets, but to my mind, this film is every bit as good.

I watched a decent chunk of the Amityville Horror remake on TNT this afternoon. It was beyond cheesy, but then, so was the source material. The closest it came to being scary was Ryan Reynolds hacking the family dog to death.

Boring movie, and the original isn't much better.
The first sequel of the original is actually quite creepy.
Worth at least one look.

The true story of the DeFeos is pretty creepy without the demonic possession stuff. The whole "Horror" nonsense is, well, nonsense.

The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936) - 8/10 - Really dumb, ridiculous story, weighed down with excessive melodrama, but the battle scenes are some of the best ever put on film, and Errol Flynn is at his absolute best. A lot more fun than the so-so '60s version.

The Yakuza (1974) - This was a hell of a lot better than I thought it would be, a nice piece of entertainment. It looks a bit dated but the set design mostly offsets that. Good score, features Mitchum and a great pace; though it takes its sweet time wrapping up. It's an 8 that I'd give a 9 because it's a fun watch.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

The Wanderers (1979) - I bought it thinking it was Hill's The Warriors, which I remebered vaguely having seen. This is a no brainer, with the plot changing movie genre at every turn. I thought it was basically a juvenile gang wars story, instead you have comedy, zombie-like scenes, melodrama and what else, witgh the ending showing that actually you were watching another American Graffiti. Really, the story shows the writers had no clue of what they were going to do. The soundtrack though, based on early '60's rock, is good throughout and some surf piece was probably heard here for the first time by Tarantino. 5\10

My thoughts exactly.

Interesting situation: I remember once, a while back, trying to watch The Warriors with some of my buddies and they were bored to death, on the other hand they were all crazy about The Wanderers, which is why I had the brilliant idea to get and show them TW in first place. One of the last times I recommended movies to persons I know in real life. I did the same mistake with my family a couple of times more, though.

The Killers (1964) - 8/10
Having Hemingway's name over the title is a joke. About the 1946 version all that I can remember is that it was told from the perspective of a detective, but I think I enjoyed both versions about equally.
