(gb) wrote: Fresh, well-paced, jarring, psychologically thrilling, dark & just a fun movie. The acting was superb (Panabaker & LaLiberte were an incredibly pair)- perfectly cast and everything was so well timed. As the plot twisted, turned, and symphonically unfolded, I could not take my eyes off of the screen.

My wife said that it was not too horrible until the bank robbery scene, then the directors/writers must have gone on a drug high. I liked the street scene at the outset, and it reminded me a little of A Christmas Story street scene. But I was so sick of that street by the end of the movie I could have screamed. I won't even mention the acting, because it was too bad to comment on.

Found this film an enjoyable fictitious look at the laying of the telegraph line across the US. Well worth watching even at 73 years of age. Some strong acting and characters.
(ru) wrote: The Shadow of Chinatown Starring: Herman Brix, Joan Barclay, Luana Walters, Maurice Lui, and Bela Lugosi Director: Robert F. Hill A pair of self-loathing "eurasians" (Walters and Lugosi) team up to use their business savaay and scientific know-how to enrich themselves and take their revenge on both the White and Oritental peoples. But they haven't counted on interference from a San Francisco society page reporter wanting to graduate to investigative reporting (Barclay), her Chinese culture-loving private detective friend (Brix), nor the assortment of superflous secondary characters and bumbling henchmen. "The Shadow of Chinatown" that I watched is the feature-film version, which is a condensing of a 15-part serial. That explains for some of the disjointedness of the story, but it doesn't account for the atrociously wooden acting on the part of the actors--except Luana Walters, the only performer who gives a decent accounting of herself--the erratic and contradictory abilities and powers of Lugosi's character, and the lame, anti-climax of the movie's end. This 70-minute version was so dull I almost didn't make it to end. It starts out strong enough with Walters and Lugosi's minions fanning out through Chinatown and terrorizing business patrons while disguised as Chinese gangsters, and providing Barclay's character an opportunity to get captured by the villains and then escape... but then it starts to sink into a mess of bad acting and even worse plotting. Walters remains a bright spot throughout, but she's really the only thing worth watching here.

(jp) wrote: Brilliant movie about a human phenotype and her interaction with her environment, whether real or in her head, or both in a Schrodinger's cat sorta way. Even more meta than that, our heroine's socially odd behavior could even be a symptom of clarity and sanity in a clueless, emotionally vapid world. The kind of movie that invites intelligent projection -- or stupid projection! Hayne's best along with Far From Heaven.
