12 Angry Men Review


Essential
Who would have thought that a movie which almost entirely takes place in one room, consists of 12 men who do nothing but talk -- and who don't even have names -- would be such a searing experience? 12 Angry Men is a classic, and an undisputed one at that, a film that is as inspiring as it is well-crafted behind the scenes.

The story is a simple one: 12 jurors are asked to decide the fate of a young man who is accused of killing his father. If guilty, he will be sentenced to the electric chair. Otherwise he goes free. The evidence is overwhelmingly against him: Two eyewitnesses, a murder weapon known to be bought by the killer, and an alibi that he couldn't remember during questioning. Open and shut, but one juror stands alone against the other 11, who'd like to get home in time for dinner. And with that single "not guilty" vote, Henry Fonda's Juror #8 sets off the titular anger.

Sweet Bird Of Youth Review


Very Good
Tennessee Williams is up to his usual tricks in Sweet Bird of Youth, a nasty little film about an aspiring (yet hopeless) actor (Paul Newman), who returns to his home town with a head full of schemes and trouble. But it's Geraldine Page, as a Gloria Swanson-esque has-been actress tagging along with him, who steals the show. (She also got an Oscar nomination, though Ed Begley, as the town politico, won Best Supporting Actor.) The film gets a little bogged down in minutiae and irrelevant side plots, but on the whole it's solid and searing.

Sorry, Wrong Number Review


Good
Barbara Stanwyck stars in this classic noir of a bedridden woman with a heart condition who discovers a murder plot during an errant phone call. Imagine her surprise when she turns out to be the potential victim! Rather straigtforward for a "mystery," but notable in that virtually every scene involves a phone call (Sorry, Wrong Number was originally a radio play). A precursor to the far better Rear Window, but noir has seen better days.

The Dunwich Horror Review


Weak
Rather amusing but tepid and tiresome adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft classic, The Dunwich Horror is redeemed only by a wild-eyed and wild-maned Dean Stockwell as a campy half-demon dude obsessed with the occult and the summoning of the demon Yog-Sothoth from another dimension. Priceless green-red-blue color effects stand in for these otherworldly locales. Really quite silly and repetitious.

The Street With No Name Review


Good
Standard-issue noir. The Street with No Name takes great pains to narrate how its hero goes undercover to infiltrate a crime ring in "Center City," purported in the oppressive voice-over to be a real location where real crimes have occurred. Part straight-up gangster picture, part elementary school film strip ("The FBI solves crimes using a number of methods..."), The Street with No Name is an archetype of its genre, though unfortunately not a terribly memorable one.
