Starring Fred MacMurray as an investigator whose moral fibre is tested by a femme fatale, this has been understandably compared to Double Indemnity over time. Rear Window though is a better comparison piece with much time on MacMurray in stakeout, watching two women with binoculars from a nearby apartment. Alas, this is nowhere near as strong as either of those two iconic thrillers with a lot style, but little character development.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? No. I'm not too big on noir and this didn't really do it for me.

I actually prefer Deliver Us from Evil, but I think both documentaries are pretty great takes on the subject since they don't just detail the priests' crimes, but also give an insight into the warped thinking and psychology of the offending priests.
How have I not seen this? Anyone have a copy they wouldn't mind sharing?
Ads = boo, but Tubi.tv and IMDB TV both have it streaming for free.

My research tells me 1000 is NOT less than 400
1. Cowards Bend the Knee (2003) #653
2. Waco: The Rules of Engagement (1997) #209
3. Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God (2012)
4. Picture of Light (1994) #686
This rang a little hollow for me... I got the vibe of "I'm a filmmaker and this is deep" in that they were talking about their art without doing anything to really provoke an emotional reaction. The shots of the lights were nice when they finally happened, but the camera wasn't that good. I've seen the norther lights, and this film did not do them justice. Extra disappointing because I'd been putting this one off until I was in the mood for a visual feast (somewhat akin to Samsara), but it fell flat.

A Hitchcockian thriller with lots of uncertainty and tension as to whether an island couple will find out their new guest's true identity. The film also comes with a rousing Miklós Rózsa score. It takes a long time for the film to really get going though with two seemingly unrelated plot threads (the couple and Sutherland's Nazi) not converging until 45 minutes in, but I think it works okay overall though and it boasts some solid performances.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? Probably. Some mild reservations but I did generally like this one.

The plot here is arguably more complex than the average western of its era with murder and a sought-after inheritance, though most of this feels at soap opera level with some over-the-top supporting performances. A tomboyish Ella Raines is nicely cast though as one of two potential love interests for John Wayne; their first scene together is remarkably intense. George 'Gabby' Hayes is also as fun as ever as a cantankerous drunkard companion.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? Probably not.

This silent comedy is a tad slow to warm up, but from the moment Marion Davis becomes set on achieving a personality, it rarely lets up with a very funny middle section in which her family thinks that she has lost her mind; Marie Dressler (as her mother; see above) has some especially funny facial reactions. The dénouement is a little weak, but the final few shots offer a charming final note. Director King Vidor visualises things very well too.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? It's very tempting; will probably hit 400 checks by September though.

Opening with a shocking scene in which a toddler is mauled to death by a wild dog at night, Suburbia feels more like a horror film than a human drama to begin with - and perhaps aptly so. The conditions that some of the teens have fled from are quite horrific, while their newfound life is no picnic either, victimised by the local adults in the area. That said, the teens get up to a bit too much mischief to really be likeable. Haunting ending though.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? Yes - but in the bottom quarter of my list.

My bad, it was on my 1000<400 watchlist for so long I didn't notice it had been removed since... :lol: I'm mentionning it, since I watched it for the challenge, but it certainly doesn't count, though... :P

Lizabeth Scott is stunning throughout as the greedy femme fatale protagonist here with high hopes of realising a childhood dream of being better "than the Joneses". Soon entering the picture, an equally cunning Dan Duryea matches her every step of the way as the desperate criminal after Scott's stolen money. Alas, the middle of the picture drags, introducing and spending too much time on other characters, but the final twenty or so minutes are great.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? I would love to, but the film has now passed the 400 check threshold.

While not playing a very likeable character with her quick temper and penchant for profanity, Crissy Rock provides a powerful central performance here as a woman wronged by a system meant to protect her. Vladimir Vega is also solid as her new lover and the film mostly works on account of their performances. The portrayal of Social Services as thoroughly incompetent did not quite feel right to me though and I disliked the title card ending.

Will I be adding this film to my 500<400 list? It's tempting. Not an enjoyable film by any stretch but solid as usual for Ken Loach.
