High Sierra (1941)
Humphrey Bogart became a legend as a tough guy: he talked fast, asked few questions, and stuck his neck out for nobody. His characters were usually only interested in selfish pursuits, but they usually had a soft spot for a beautiful woman. Bogart's character in High Sierra, an aging...

The Asphalt Jungle (1950)
The Asphalt Jungle is a classic film noir directed by one of cinema's greatest, John Huston. It's a heist film, but what makes it different from others is that it is more concerned with the consequences of the heist than the actual robbery itself. Unfortunately, the movie failed to meet...

The Killing (1956)
Stanley Kubrick's first hit film, The Killing, is a superior heist movie filled with all of what are now the standard elements. What sets it apart is Kubrick's inventive time-rearranging storytelling and excellent visual sense, along with some twists and turns that you really can't see...

8 1/2 (1963)
How does one begin to talk about 8 1/2? Every frame in this film could be put in a frame and hung on a wall. But it is not just the most brilliantly vivid visual film I've seen, it is indeed brilliantly conceived from beginning to end as well....

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)
The Old West as depicted in most movies consisted of heroes and villains, cowboys fighting indians and outlaws to protect a tiny rural town. Well, needless to say, the Western genre does not generally provide an accurate portrayal of the Old West. McCabe & Mrs. Miller turns the Western...

Don't Look Now (1973)
Don't Look Now is a strange motion picture, drenched in symbolism, and with a labyrinthine plot that keeps the audience's minds spinning and wondering what the meaning of all of its odd shots is. Well eventually it all does come together, but, well, maybe one viewing isn't enough to soak...
