Misery
Perfect 9 Points 1990

I’ve read many Stephen King novels and am a huge fan. I have not, however, read Misery. The movie makes me want to very much.

Rear Window
Perfect 88 Points 1954

A lavish Hitchcock treat, full of glamour, suspense and wit. The establishing scene is a virtuoso display of filmmaking all by itself, while Grace Kelly graces – there is no other word for it – the silver screen like a goddess amongst mortals.

The Silence Of ...
Perfect 44 Points 1991

Silence of the Lambs set the standard for the psychological crime thriller. As Hanibal, Anthony Hopkins does ‘evil’ like nobody else, and if that wasn’t enough, Jodie Foster and her law enforcement brood need to find and deal with Hanibal’s sick protege. This movie deserved all of the Oscars that…

Perfect 2 Points 1999

MY NUMBER THREE!!! First off, Matt Damon at his best. Long before the Bourne movies, Matt was already star. This movie is so complex, and so original. I find myself wondering what it would be like to have be in the situation that Tom Ripley was forced into. Matt Damon, Jude Law, Philip Seym…

Double Indemnity
Perfect 66 Points 1944

Want to hear what perfect dialog sounds like? Listen to Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity. Credit Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain and director Billy Wilder, three legendary writers who didn’t get along but nonetheless birthed “the paradigmatic film noir.”1

The 39 Steps
Perfect 66 Points 1935

Delightful and gripping, this early Hitchcock gem became the model for fugitive hero thrillers ever since. Terrifically entertaining – albeit dated in dialog, edginess and production values – The 39 Steps is a must see for anyone interested in the original hero-on-the-run-from-the-good-and-bad…

Femme Fatale
Perfect 5 Points 2002

Exhibiting the same visual panache attributed to the likes of Dario Argento, Brian De Palma exhiliratingly creates an aesthetically supreme dismantling of the thriller-noir in his brilliant, and therein underrated, “Femme Fatale.” Rebecca Romijn-Stamos stars as in the dual role of Laure and Lily,…

Inception
Perfect 122 Points 2010

Deep, exceptionally smart, and profoundly cinematic, Inception is nothing less than the second coming of Citizen Kane. Just as Orson Welles’ masterpiece redefined the conception of silver screen storytelling, so Christopher Nolan’s magnum opus expands the boundaries of cinematic art in ways …

Slumdog Million...
Perfect 72 Points 2008

Slumdog Millionaire couldn’t be more of the moment if it was named President-elect Barack Obama: a Mumbai movie that delivers world class entertainment about a Muslim media sensation. The three kids at its center aren’t religious or radical, though their profound victimization makes it easy to…
