Reversal Of Fortune Review


Extraordinary
Here's the movie that made Jeremy Irons such a memorable villain. (Well, this and Dead Ringers.) And it's all true: Claus von Bulow was convicted of nearly murdering his ultra-rich wife (Glenn Close), who lay in a coma after a massive insulin overdose. The famous Alan Dershowitz (Ron Silver) handles the appeal: While it initially appears to be a no-contest-he's-guilty-slam-dunk, all manner of evidence comes to light indicating that not only is Claus probably innocent, he almost certainly is. How we change our minds into rooting for this bad guy remains one of cinema's greatest tricks. You may feel different about the voice-over narration, provided by the comatose Sunny, the film's one iffy spot. (As for Sunny, she's still in a coma as of 2005, 25 years later.)

The Boys From Brazil Review


Excellent
A fun curiosity of a movie, from the end of the career of both Peck and Olivier (and Mason, for that matter... okay, and Steve Guttenberg, too). Telling the mysterious tale of Josef Mengele (Peck), who is living in Paraguay in the late 1970s, trying to rebuild the Third Reich, The Boys from Brazil takes a long time to get to its big secret. When you do finally get there, it's a mixture of ahhhhh and huh? that makes the film mostly worthwhile. Have a bit of a laugh at the scientific silliness that the movie revolves around, too.
