Chinatown

Chinatown

Roman Polanski's brooding film noir exposes the darkest side of the land of sunshine, the Los Angeles of the 1930s, where power is the only currency--and the only real thing worth buying. Fabulous movie - a must-see!!

Not to mention Ellen Corby she play the cantakerous grandma on The Waltons.

Claudine is a period piece that deserves to be viewed. Diahn Carol and James Earl Jones give strong perfomances as two people trying to build a life together. The soundtrack which was done by Motown greats "Gladys Knight and the Pips" was played in our household many times.

In the entire history of American movies, The Night of the Hunter stands out as the rarest and most exotic of specimens. It is, to say the least, a masterpiece--and not just because it was the only movie directed by flamboyant actor Charles Laughton or the only produced solo screenplay by the legendary critic James Agee (who also cowrote The African Queen). The truth is, nobody has ever made anything approaching its phantasmagoric, overheated style in which German expressionism, religious hysteria, fairy-tale fantasy (of the Grimm-est variety), and stalker movie are brought together in a furious boil. Like a nightmarish premonition of stalker movies to come, Night of the Hunter tells the suspenseful tale of a demented preacher (Robert Mitchum, in a performance that prefigures his memorable villain in Cape Fear), who torments a boy and his little sister--even marries their mixed-up mother (Shelley Winters)--because he's certain the kids know where their late bank-robber father hid a stash of stolen money. So dramatic, primal, and unforgettable are its images--the preacher's shadow looming over the children in their bedroom, the magical boat ride down a river whose banks teem with fantastic wildlife, those tattoos of LOVE and HATE on the unholy man's knuckles, the golden locks of a drowned woman waving in the current along with the indigenous plant life in her watery grave--that they're still haunting audiences (and filmmakers) today.

Mary Tyler Moore blew me away with her performance as the distant, cold-hearted mother in this movie. Knowing her only as the buoyant Mary of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", I was even more chilled by her character's inability to connect with anyone but herself. And although Timothy Hutton's struggles are primarily psychological, he makes them almost tangible through his vibrant and honest portrayal of a young man who has lost sight of what he wants from life . . . and if he really wants to live.

Forget the remake starring Sylvester Stallone (who were they trying to kid, really?). Get Carter is a gritty, tense crime movie, and a classic of British cinema. It still has a tinge of the swinging 60s with its brilliantly evocative soundtrack and inclusion of stars Michael Caine and Britt Ekland. Carter is not a particularly clever but well-dressed thug from London, who is driven by a cold yet inspired revenge when he travels to Newcastle to avenge his brother's death. It's a masterfully told and acted tale, as we follow Carter through the sad and seedy underbelly of working-class Newcastle. Stark and unsettling, it's truly a classic.

A devout and pious Catholic police sergeant travels to a remote Scottish island when he receives word that a young girl has gone missing. What he finds shocks and subtly intrigues while threatening his religious beliefs - a deeply pagan and close-knit society who worship nature over established religion. With strange customs and overt sensuality on full display at each turn, Edward Woodward's Sergeant Howie rallies forth to do his duty and solve the central mystery of the missing child. Entangling with the town's charmingly sinister leader Lord Summerisle (a wonderful Christopher Lee), the beguiling landlord's daughter and nymph Willow (Britt Eckland) and a host of other vaguely sinister characters, Howie delves deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the island, until the Wicker Man's stunning conclusion. It's an utterly unforgettable and original film, sadly underrated at the time of its release and it's brilliance was barely touched by the abysmal, woefully misguided 2006 remake of the same name.

Classic, chilling and unquestionably brilliant. Hitchcock was at the top of his game when he made this, Vertigo and North By Northwest and Psycho, his masterpiece of horror and suspense has never been eclipsed. Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh would never outgrow their roles as Norman Bates and Marion Crane and this film's multiple iconic images have been oft imitated (most famously by Gus van Sant's shot-by-shot remake). Hitchcock had a knack for touching on universally terrifying things and Psycho's shower scene is one of his most powerful - think about it the next time you're in the shower - you're alone, naked, defenseless...what's might be on the other side of that curtain? Despite being made in 1960, it's story is still chilling and evocative. I still get scared getting into the shower to this day.
