Three Comrades (Frank Borzage, 1938). An unusual film in so many ways, full of feeling and evocative dialogue. Given the different talents of Borzage, screenwriter F. Scott Fitzgerald, and producer Joseph L. Mankiewicz, it could hardly be without some interesting ripples.
The Drop (Michaël R. Roskam, 2014). A Dennis Lehane script gives a pretty exceptional cast the urban-underworld stuff to work with: Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, and Noomi Rapace leading the way. (full review 9/12)
Hostile Witness (Ray Milland, 1968). As a piece of direction on Milland’s part, let’s just say this is no Panic in Year Zero!, all right? The story’s legal machinations are kind of fun, though.
