The Secret of N...
Great 66 Points 1980

Tesla stands alone — the most mystical, the most gifted, the most freaky of the great industrial magnates, e.g., Edison, Westinghouse & J.P. Morgan, who also appear in this biopic of the Serbian-American inventor. From Zagreb, it presents as a bizarre movie where people’s mouths don’t match wh…

Great 66 Points 2013

Stallworth is a true American hero, straight up, the only one unblemished in Lee’s ted…

Good 66 Points 1956

Marilyn Monroe rescues Bus Stop, as she rescued so many of her movies, her luminescent sexuality juxtaposed against an American society inchoately besotted with her. True fans can’t avert their eyes.

To be clear, Bus Stop is a cheesy time-capsule, a Fifties classic capable of making "Alan…
