Nick of Time (1995)
- 6/10

I thought this was a decent thriller when I first saw it in the 90s, but nowadays it seems pretty weak and mediocre.

Christopher Walken lifts it one grade up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbuhgR3w0Zc

One-Eyed Jacks - 7/10 - A mostly good Western with weird, frustrating pacing. It's long, character-based, talky, really slow in spots and could definitely have used some trimming; the love story in particular could have been lost or crimped with little loss to the overall film. Brando is a competent director, providing good shootouts and some nice scenery (the sea-side town is gorgeous) but not having a handle on the craft's finer elements like pacing, dramatic economy and attention to detail. You can definitely discern Peckinpah's influence on the film with the recycled Left-Handed Gun bits that would later find their way into PG&BTK, especially the whole jail scene. Brando's performance is good though he seems too old for his part; Malden is fine, if a bit hammy; good supporting turns by Ben Johnson and Slim Pickens. Katy Jurado is ill-used. I'll be generous with my rating.

Von Ryan's Express - 8/10 - A lot better than I expected. It's a good old-fashioned WWII commando flick, liberally stealing the best elements of other films (The Train, Bridge on the River Kwai, The Great Escape) and draining it of all seriousness: after the first half-hour or so it's non-stop action and it's hard not to get swept up in the fun. The ending is a real kicker though. Frank Sinatra is coasting but Trevor Howard is stellar as usual.

What about Raffaella Carrą?

She's a tacked-on token female?

I thought maybe she could have made an impression on you. She didn't. OK

Carra's good-looking to be sure, but she has, what, five minutes of screen time?

Hell, I think she looks better now than she did back then.

I'm not impressed with the bad dye job. But she looked great in VRE.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
