    The Freshman

    ★★★★½

    "I'd like to play on your football team if you don't mind." [Intertitles]

    The Freshman is a delightfully funny and charming silent comedy, more than earning its reputation as one of the best of its kind, and has the charisma, talent, and endearing performance of lead Harold Lloyd to thank for its success.

  • Ator, the Fighting Eagle

    Ator, the Fighting Eagle

    ★★

    "The son of Torren has returned on the same mission of his father!"

    Ator, The Fighting Eagle is, for the most part, a pretty by-the-books sword-and-sandals action film, complete with a dull, personality-less lead and a stock villain and unnecessary twist at the end. However, audiences will find some of the challenges this hero goes up against to be at least fascinating in their concepts, if uninspired in their execution.

    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    Andrei Tarkovsky's masterpiece is a bitter contemplation on themes such as want vs. desire and misery vs. hope, and is told with the director's poetic sense of style and breathtaking imagery.

  • Grand Illusion

    Grand Illusion

    ★★★★★

    Jean Renoir's poetic and delicate tale of humanity and war watches soldiers attempt to break away from their bonds as POWs. The story, however, is more about the spaces between the events--and how the characters maintain their humanity in spite of their impossible surroundings.
