Missing Review


Excellent
Before there was the Iraq War, there was the Chilean coup. And before there was Daniel Pearl, there was Charlie Horman, who vanished one day in 1973 while it was all going down in a time of serious turmoil.

Like Pearl, Horman was a reporter -- or, at least, he wanted to be one -- which brought him to Chile during the violent upheaval in this troubled South American country. Martial law is in full effect: If you can't tell by the military officials and machine guns on every corner, then perhaps the piles of dead bodies -- some covered, some not -- might clue you in.

The River (1984) Review


Good
Sissy and Mel face off against a raging river -- and plenty more -- in this chest-thumping melodrama from On Golden Pond director Mark Rydell. Of course, it's not just the river that's about to flood the family farm that they have to contend with. They also have a bank that wants its loan payments, an evil dam developer who'll even hire thugs to rip down their makeshift levee, and just about every other obstacle under the sun. (Even the umpire at the local baseball game is against them!) The film is ironically at its best and most eye-rolling when Spacek gets her arm caught in a piece of farm equipment, threatening her with bleeding to death. It's high-water, hair-tearing hysteria that works remarkably well.

Grand Prix Review


Excellent
Sorry, NASCAR fans. Grand Prix isn't your usual chips-hot-dogs-beer-and-babes trip to the speedway.

John Frankenheimer crafts a surprisingly rich and interesting movie that's set during the rise of auto racing. Not only does it capture the spectacle of these tiny little open-air cars hurtling around European village streets (no ovals here), it also builds an interesting story of rivalries, friendly and otherwise.

Seconds Review


Extraordinary
Arthur Hamilton has a problem: he's wealthy and successful... but he's getting old.

An old friend phones him out of the blue: Come to this address and prepare for an unimaginable new future. Indeed, no sooner has Hamilton entered the building (couriered there from a meat-packing plant, naturally) than he has become a customer, willing or not, of "the organization," which provides a radical plastic surgery regemin to cut about 30 years off the looks of its clients. Oh, and it also fakes the death of the client and provides a new identity -- and the client's new life is paid for with backdated insurance policies (after the organization takes its cut, of course).

Seven Days in May Review


Excellent
Classic political intrigue, with Kirk Douglas, Fredric March, and Burt Lancaster wrapped up in a plot to overthrow the president! Heavy stuff, courtesy of Rod Serling's master writing. Unfortunately, when the going gets good -- really hitting a fever pitch on day seven -- the story goes limp and the ending is a big letdown. Still, Lancaster is unparalleled in a rare bad guy role, helped amiably by a solid supporting staff. One of Frankenheimer's best works.

Spartacus Review


OK
The original movie about gladiators, with Kirk Douglas taking the starring role in Stanley Kubrick's muddy epic (over three hours long) about slaves vs. Romans in the heyday of the Empire. Director Stanley Kubrick was obviously just collecting a paycheck for this one, though he stages some intricate battle scenes. Too bad he obviously couldn't have cared less about the lame love story and political machinations behind the scenes. Kubrick reported disowned this film, the only movie in his repertoire to earn such a fate.
