The Day of the Locust (1975, John Schlesinger)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 22, 2016

The Day of the Locust is a gentle film, at least in terms of Schlesinger’s direction, Conrad L. Hall’s cinematography and John Barry’s score. The film’s softly lit but with a whole lot of focus. Schlesinger wants to make sure the audience gets to see every part of the actors read more

Film Noir Review: Lady in the Lake (1947)

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Danilo Castro on Aug 22, 2016

“Some cases, like this one, kind of creep up on you on their hands and knees and the first thing you know, you’re in it up to your neck.” First person perspective was a trick that film noir flirted with throughout the 1940s. Delmer Daves spent the first half of Dark Passage (1947) hiding Humph read more

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Aug 21, 2016

Walter Brennan as Grandpa Bower. You could call it the Mary Poppins Syndrome.
