Angels One Five (1952)

A war picture in which you barely get any glimpse of war, "Angels One Five" is a subpar British WWII drama.
Good Will Hunting - inside

Good Will Hunting (1997)

Despite frequent jokes about its authorship, "Good Will Hunting" remains one of the most vibrant, original screenplays of the 1990s.

The Truman Show (1998)

Peter Weir's eerily prescient take on the invasive nature of media made good use of Jim Carrey's early manic comic persona.

Two Thousand Women (1944)

This ill-conceived comedy renders the greatest conflict in the history of mankind into a slamming-doors farce with gushy romance and cartoon villains.

Eyes Without a Face (1960)

"Eyes Without a Face" is revered as a seminal bit of proto-horror, but not by me.
Hangmen Also Die - lede
