One on One
Henry Steele is a basketball phenom at his small town high school, but when he matriculates to a big city university on a scholarship, soon realizes that he has few skills outside the sport. Expected by his coach to contribute significantly to the team, Henry is overwhelmed by the demands on his time, the "big business" aspect of college sports, and the fact that he never fully learned to read. Things look bleak for Henry when Janet Hays, a pretty graduate student, is assigned as Henry's tutor. Her intellect and strength lift Henry out of his doldrums just in time to battle the coach, who attempts to rescind Henry's scholarship.

The dynamic between the bros and the boy was the most enjoyable part of the film thatAnd the kinship between the bros . Still I felt like we missed some of the story. Mostly fells like a idea rather than a script . I'd love to see what better filmmakers could do with this cast and idea.

(jp) wrote: I really liked this movie and thought all the performances were great. The characters were real, had real problems and dealt with them like real people do. This seems basic but its surprisingly novel. The plot was good and progressed logically and I totally got sucked in. The final ending is a bit too much but overall a nice little movie.

(gb) wrote: Foreign movies are soo great. This movie had such a powerful message, as well as a beautiful backdrop. Only foreign movies have such complex but fantastic storyline. This one's meaning can be easily said with one of the last lines. Ultimately it doesn't matter where you end up, its who you end up with that matters. You can go to the moon, and only find sand.

(gb) wrote: A good return to form for the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.Since The Birds in 1963 Hitchcock's movies (Marnie, Torn Curtain andTopaz) had not met with commercial success (though, personally, I thinkMarnie was great).Frenzy sees Hitchcock back to doing what he does best - suspensefulmurder dramas. Great, intriguing plot with the usual clever directionfrom Hitchcock. Some of his camera angles and exterior shots arestraight from his own book of how imply something and create tensionwithout saying a word, or using manipulative music.The movie also has some great comedic moments. The Chief Inspector andhis wife having dinner were always hilarious.Much more edgy in terms of nudity and sex than any previous Hitchcockmovies. This could be ascribed to censorship restrictions beingrelaxed. Also tells you what Hitchcock could have done with is moviesif all the stupid, puritanical censorship wasn't there all along.Not as tightly wound as his greats (Rear Window and Psycho especially),so not perfect as far as suspense and enthrallment goes.Good performance by Jon Finch in the lead role. Good support from AlecMcCowen, Barry Foster, Anna Massey and Barbara Leigh-Hunt.Sadly, this was to be Hitchcock's penultimate movie. His final movie,Family Plot was released four years later, in 1976. He died in 1980.
