The Fountainhead Review


Excellent
Ayn Rand's own adaptation of her highly-regarded (and extremely thick) book. While I haven't read the novel (yet--it's in my stack), the film seems faithful to her work and is certainly faithful to her spirit.

(Turns out it's a building. D'oh!)

Young Man With A Horn Review


Very Good
Kirk Douglas always loved playing self-destructive artists. Here he's a musical virtuoso who discovers an uncanny ability to play piano on sight, then picks up a trumpet in a pawn shop and falls in love with it right away.
