When a Women Ascends The Stairs (1960): A Prescient Portrait of Japan

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 2, 2021

A version of this review was first published in Film Inquiry.  If Floating Clouds is a film about making peace with the war years, then When a Woman Who Ascends The Stairs is a far more forward-thinking endeavor. In fact, I would say it’s a near-prescient portrait of where Japan has ventured read more

Ray Harryhausen's Valley of Gwangi

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Mar 1, 2021

Gwangi: The star of the movie! Made in 1969, The Valley of Gwangi is one of those movies that seems to improve with age. Its far-out “cowboys vs. dinosaur” premise has always held a certain appeal. However, repeat viewings have allowed me to truly appreciate the little to read more

Happy Noir Endings

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Feb 28, 2021

A couple of weeks back, in one of the noir-related Facebook groups that I frequent, a poster commented that film noir movies “don’t have happy endings.” This was disputed by several in the group, and I’m in agreement with them; while I love a downbeat noir ending as much as the next person, read more

THE DIRTY HEROES

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Feb 27, 2021

 THE DIRTY HEROES is a 1968 Italian-made WWII adventure story. In a review of the film I found on the internet, it was referred to as a "macaroni combat" movie--I assume this was the equivalent of a Spaghetti Western. In 1945 Holland, three Americans escape from a German POW camp. The grou read more

Hell to Eternity (1960): The Story of Guy Gabaldon

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Feb 25, 2021
