The Party Review


Good
Peter Sellers makes one of his biggest character stretches here as Indian nincompoop Hrundi V. Bakshi, a film extra who accidentally demolishes the set, then finds himself mistakenly invited to a big Hollywood dinner party. His bumbling begins the moment he steps foot in the door. Literally: He loses his shoe in a fountain, doesn't have a seat at the table, and dunks a piece of artwork in the toilet. Little bizarrely hilarious moments don't quite make the movie on their own, but for Sellers and/or Blake Edwards fans, it's totally worth a look.

The Swimmer Review


Excellent
Great voyages often make great movies, and Burt Lancaster's "swimming home" from house to house across a ritzy Connecticut county in an attempt to figure out his life, is one of them. At first he seems completely content, visiting friends across the valley from his house, but as his backyard-pool trip continues, a darker story emerges, as he encounters people from his past (all of whom seem to be spending the day out by the pool). From romantic affairs to strange business dealings to a world of debt to general neurotic behavior, Lancaster's Ned Merrill is a tragic hero for the '60s, and it's one of Lancaster's most searing performances. Frank Perry's direction is dated (though Sydney Pollack may have done uncredited work on it), but that oddly makes the film even more memorable.

Show Boat Review


Good
Widely regarded as a classic, the 1951 Technicolor bonanza that is Show Boat (based on the Broadway musical) has not aged well. The film starts as two riverboat performers (including the lovely show-stealing Ava Gardner) are forced to quit their jobs when it's discovered they have black ancestry somewhere down the line. Such "mixed blood" doesn't sit well with the locals, so replacements are hired, including the daughter of the "cap'n." Later they go broke. That's the gist: The film doesn't offer much more story, as its musical numbers (including the famous "Old Man River") take center stage. Too bad the racial politics just don't play the same as they did when Edna Ferber wrote the novel in 1926.
