Laura (1944)

The 1944 film noir is a movie with a distinctly pessimistic view of humanity that is photographed with an aching, shadowy beauty.

The Long and Short of It: ‘Barry Lyndon’

A sweeping punch to the gut, this is the kind of film that defines cinema.

Touch of Evil

Classic film noir mystery / thriller is an absolute joy to watch.

The Long and Short of It: ‘The Right Stuff’

"The Right Stuff" is one of the few films in this series that feels too long. But for a few brief moments, it will leave you wide-eyed with wonder.

Pulp Fiction

The most important film of the past 30 years is to be shown April 8 at the Old National Centre. Don't miss it!
Howard Stern plays himself in "Private Parts," a 1997 Paramount Pictures biopic about his life and career.

Class of 1997: Private Parts

The Howard Stern biopic expertly straggles hagiography and hogwash while hinting at why the controversial media titan remains fascinating.

The Hand (1960)

An execrable piece of British horror most notable for the total lack of scares and utter impenetrability of its plot.

The Long and Short of It: ‘Reds’

Here's this column's first film whose length feels excessive. It's a quietly devastating, intimate love story swallowed up in a stilted political epic.
