    Killing Eve (Series One)
    OK, so I am little late to the party. This dark thriller/comedy is worth the hype, and I give it extra credit for casting the great, incomparable Fiona Shaw, who we usually never see enough of.

    Jonny Quest
    Recently re-released in stunning high-def, this Saturday morning cartoon classic is like James Bond for boys. In the first minute of the first episode, several men are murdered, and then blond heart-throb Race is introduced romping on the beach in his bathing suit. (One can easily imagine Race and Dr. Quest as lovers, if so inclined.) A dangerous and exciting world without women (most of the time). Positively Freudian, with iconic imagery and great monsters and villains.
    Grade: Five Stars

    An Actor’s Revenge (1963)
    A Japanese classic filmed like a kabuki tale, with exquisite sets and costumes and beautiful cinematography. Kuzuo Hasegawa is brilliant and moving in the title role. Grade: A

    Bedazzled (1967)
    Hilarious comedy from Peter Cook & Dudley Moore directed by Stanley Donen, of all people. Featuring the incomparable Eleanor Bron, a real scene-stealer. Grade: B

    The Day of the Jackal (1973)
    Although the book was better, this adaptation is a gripping and effective thriller. Always glad to see Delphine Seyrig, too, who was the epitome of French chic. Grade: B+

    House of Games (1987)
    1980’s style film noir with entertaining David Mamet dialogue. Grade: B+

    Orlando (1992)
    Breathtaking costumes and sets in service of a delightfully quirky and weird story based on the Virginia Woolf novel. Tilda Swinton is sublime as always. Grade: A-

    Ready Player One (2018)
    The worst movie ever made by Steven Spielberg.
    Grade: F

    Blue Velvet (1986)
    A surreal psychological thriller about the loss of innocence that goes a step further to posit that innocence itself is just an illusion. New re-release on Blu-ray disc is the best, sharpest release ever for home viewing. Both Dennis Hopper and Isabella Rossellini deliver iconic performances, in explosive, unforgettable scenes, including one nightmarish encounter with Dean Stockwell at a bizarre gang crib. David Lynch is an artistic genius and this is one of his best movies. Grade: A

    The Prestige (2006)

    The end of this movie, when two rival magicians confront each other for the final time and argue over the worth of their trade, reminds me of this satirical quote from Singin’ in the Rain:

    “If we bring a little joy into your humdrum lives, it makes us feel as though our hard work ain’t been in vain for nothin’.”

    Singin’ in the Rain is a clever movie; this one settles for being tricksy.

    Grade: D-

    L’Humanite (France, 1999)
    A genre-busting murder mystery that subverts and confounds expectations. Beautiful painter-like cinematography, superb editing, and fearless, bravura performances. Sublime and transcendental. Grade: A

    Klute (1971)
    One of Jane Fonda’s best performances. Great cinematography by Gordon Willis gives picture a memorably gritty look. Grade: A
