    Rewatch is pretty much how I felt when I saw it in the 80's: Newman is dynamite, especially his scene with one-scene wonder Whitaker, & his subsequent breakdown - but Cruise is SO callow (acting, not character) that you keep waiting for a comeuppance that never comes. And you definitely want more with the beautiful, talented Mastrantonio & Shaver. Scorsese keeps things moving courtesy DP Michael Ballhaus & editor Thelma Schoonmaker, but its mostly flash.

  • Mother


    Brooks sadly getting progressively more toothless as he gets older - the phone calls with Mom in Modern Romance wipe the floor with this whole movie.

    British film, before it became the waystation for Eton College toffs with hyphenated names, used to be about people who looked & acted like Bob Hoskins - real people.

    The 'Burbs

    Rare total miss from Dante, seems to be tailor-made for his sensibilities but doesn't even make it to sitcom grade, even in Dante's workprint, which mostly just has alternate takes - I smell meddling hands of producers Ron Howard & Brian Grazer.
