All About Eve (1950)
ALL ABOUT PERFECTION IN EVERY WAY!
At every level concievable, writing, directing, acting, etc etc etc this film is a masterpiece. Not a single word in the script is wasted...every shot, every angle important...and the acting!!!!! Flawless performances by Bette Davis, Anne Baxter,George Saunders,Celeste Holm, Gary Merrill, Harold Lloyd,...and Thelma Ritter nearly steals every scene she is in as the wise cracking maid Birdie.
The film is about triangles...backstabbing...and what would one do to get to the top of her game...in this instance it is the Theatre as ther back drop and Anne Baxter as EVE...the seeming "lost lamb" that becomes a wolf as she weaves a web around Bette Davis's Margo Channing. The goal is to be what she is...a star..a true star. And she wants it no matter who gets hurt in the process.
Among the 20 best movies ever made IMHO.
The Incident (1967)
THE SUBWAY RIDE FROM HELL
a truly excellent film with remarkable performances from all of the cast. The film explores a theme of the uncaring New Yorkers which was very much a dominating force here in the mid and late 1960s. Two boys terrorize and essentially hold hostage about a dozen people on a subway car in the early morning hours. The passengers represent a crossection of New York society. It is a film about ones fears in confronting terror...in allowing evil to happen to all around you and doing nothing to stop it. It ends when finally an outsider in that subway car has reached his breaking point. Yet he too is eventually abandonded.
as a New Yorker and a subway buff i really enjoyed the exteriors of the number 4 train although the cars early on are pre 1960 and later on the exteriors are the post 1964 cars...but this is a continuity error that someone like myself would look for.
Along with a very young Martin Sheen...look for Donna Mills as a late teenage virgin..the veteran Great THELMA RITTER and a surprise appearance in a dramatic role by Johnny Carson's sidekick ED MCMAHON
