(nl) wrote: Fairly poor. We watched this while in early 1900s mode, but it proved less impressive than the fictional tales recently on BBC. This one is factual, and as often, facts are less moving than art. Dan Stevens hasn't moved very far from Downton here, and he should. Florence Carter-Wood comes across as weak and quite cowardly in her use of poison to escape from harsh reality. Munnings was no doubt a bastard, and that no doubt contributed to his success at the RA. It's not an uplifting tale, and it's not told well here either.

Rumor has it that Orson Welles wanted to helm this and one can only imagine the spectacle that would have been. Instead, Nichols' version is a bit flat, though spotted with some striking scenes (especially the one with Hungry Joe). Alan Arkin is great, but at this point in time, it seems impossible not to play "spot the 70s sitcom stars" when watching (many appeared in Bob Newhart's first show, I think) and it is a little jarring to see some of them beside Welles, Anthony Perkins, and a fat Martin Balsam. Ultimately, the insanity and stupidity of war isn't underscored enough for me, as it is a bit too easy to get lost in the capitalistic shenanigans of Jon Voight's Milo Mindbender (although this is perhaps part of the point -- war is business). But playing in the midst of Vietnam (or Iraq/Afghanistan/Next One), this might have resonated more, depending on your closeness to that reality.

(mx) wrote: One the most talked about & commercially successful film of 1955...but I honestly can't see why...it didn't do an awful lot for me. The dialogue wasn't natural at all & in my opinion Kim Novak can't act at all (save Hitchcock's Vertigo)This film has the reputation of such sexual tension for the 50's but it wasn't that tense at all since William Holden & Novak just didn't have the chemistry.This film had a lot of potential, I think with a different director & James Dean in lead (who I believe was considered for the role) you may have had a better film.This has interesting elements & has a few choice scenes but overall it just doesn't work & have naturalism & authenticity it's a little pretentious.

Rabies in terms of vampyrism hits Monetral as the plague. Compared with his films just after Rabid, you can easily remark that Rabid, is somewhat beneath pair.

Pretty good film where the tension builds as more and more evidence points to the kidnapping. A notable takeaway is one really must prepare a contingency when best laid plans fall apart at the seams.
