    Magnificent Obsession (1954)
    One of Douglas Sirk’s sublime melodramas produced by Ross Hunter, with gorgeous Technicolor cinematography by the great Russell Metty, who won an Oscar for Spartacus. A classic tearjerker, in the best sense. Grade: A

    Don’t Look Now (1973)
    One of the best horror films ever made, winner of the BAFTA award for best cinematography, stunningly filmed in Venice in all its grandeur and decay. The new 4K release is a revelation. Grade: A+

    Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
    The highlight of this film is a very glamorous, very creepy orgy scene set in a castle, but the overall effect is ponderous and dense, much like the main character played by Tom Cruise. Director Kubrick made the mistake of condescending to his audience, which he successfully avoided in masterpieces like 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and Lolita. While Cruise and Kidman bravely step out of their comfort zone, they both appear miscast, which they probably were in real life as husband and wife. Films like The Shining prove Kubrick a master of ratcheting up tension through genre conventions; Eyes Wide Shut could have used more gothic horror and less wide-eyed naiveté. Grade: B+

    Mary Poppins Returns (2018)
    Probably not destined for “classic” status like the 1964 original, but better than you might have predicted for a sequel. Great casting, art, sets, costumes, etc. Love the Music Hall sequence, which combines live action with animation. Grade: B+

    Color Out of Space (2019)
    I am a huge fan of Lovecraft’s horror stories so I really wanted to like this film, which has a number of astonishingly beautiful images and sequences (the 4K transfer is amazing), but is ruined by reverting to cheap and idiotic horror movie clichés and some very bad acting (e.g., Nicolas Cage). A waste of great material. Grade: D+

    This week I’ve been watching all movies with Nicolas Cage from 1995 to 2004. God, how tough and cool he was that times! Yeah, he was in couple fine movies after that, but let’s face it, nobody remembers him now.
