Dr. Strangelove -- Featured Image

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" is perhaps the greatest satirical dark comedy ever made. It ranks as a classic.
Mr. Christmas Mr. Lawrence - featured

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983)

David Bowie's favorite screen role was in "Mr. Christmas, Mr. Lawrence," an engaging but often moony contemplation of forbidden love.

The Great McGinty - featured

The Great McGinty (1940)

The story of a crook who loses it all by going straight, "The Great McGinty" launched Preston Sturges' directing career and gave Brian Donlevy a rare leading role.
2001 A Space Odyssey (Featured Image)

2001: A Space Odyssey

“2001: A Space Odyssey” is truly one of the greatest films ever made.

The Collector - featured

The Collector (1965)

An early iteration of the serial killer as main character theme, "The Collector" features two wonderful performances by Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar.
Hoosiers -- Featured Image

Hoosiers

Andy Ray must have been the only Indiana-native film critic to give "Hoosiers" a negative review. Before you grab pitchforks or battering rams, let him explain.

The Night Porter - featured

The Night Porter (1974)

"The Night Porter" is one of the most reviled and celebrated art films of the last half-century. Personally, I don't see the two as mutually exclusive.
Midnight Run

Buried Treasures: Midnight Run

It’s funny, full of action, and the loose ends of the plot are finalized in one big showdown scene. This one’s a crowd-pleaser.
