Wonder Woman

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jun 23, 2017

Series | The Thin Man

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 22, 2017

Since its first installment in 1934 and in the eighty years since, The Thin Man series has stood apart from other film series and franchises.

The Bigamist (1953)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 20, 2017

I despise you and I pity you. ~ Edmund Gwenn as Mr. Jordan The Bigamist is at first a delightful noir — in one aspect unassuming and yet groundbreaking when put in a broader context. Ida Lupino is not simply a good female director. She is a good director, period.   She left a body of work both read more
