Holiday Fare

Introducing our new film critic, who finds this month‘s menu both hot and cold.

Smaller than Life

It‘s time for Sidney Lumetís annual thrashing.

Flying High

Milos Forman’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is so crazy, it just might work.

The Eyes Have It

It was a good month for Stanley Kubrick and a bad month for computers.

The French Lieutenant’s Shrew

Two films that make it on one level, lose it on another.

Meaner Streets

Who is the Taxi Driver and why is he doing those terrible things?

After the Fall

Two not-so-mild-mannered reporters fight for truth, justice, and the American way—and win.

Plain Filming

Liv Ullmann is at her best when she’s at her worst.

Buffaloed Bill

Hollywood techniques may have worked for the Wild West shows, but we expected more from Robert Altman.

A Midsummer’s Nightmare

If you thought this summer’s film lineup looked promising, pinch yourself. “The Big Bus” and “Logan’s Run,” are anything but a reviewer’s dream.

Easy Outing

Bingo Long is a baseball movie even a non-fan can love.

Accept No Substitutions

Nobody does a Hitchcock film like Hitchcock. Unfortunately, somebody else tried.

Thanks for the Memory

Two rotten apples don’t spoil a good bunch.

Rock’s Road to Success

Sylvester Stallone proves that a boxer‘s rebellion still makes a good story.

Tender Is the Plight

F. Scott Fitzgerald has better luck with Hollywood (this time) than Woody Guthrie.
