    Laura

    ★★★★½

    Otto Preminger once again proves that he was one of the most interesting and unique directors of not only Golden Age Hollywood but American film in general. Sadly, most of his films are often overlooked nowadays.
    This film is a good proof that his splendid direction and strong interest in unique stories made his films some of the best.
    The story is clever and its execution flawless. The acting is good. Gene Tierney manages to create a perfect Laura.

    Gertrud

    ★★★★½

    Certainly Dreyer’s least accessible work. With a very long run time and a quasi non existing story. I must admit I had to look at my watch a few times. However, it somehow managed to always draw me back. Despite subtle camera movements it manages to feel static, which perfectly fits Gertrud. One of the most interesting facts is that we as the viewer are never aware if we should sympathise with Gertrud or reprise her.

    Bringing Up Baby

    ★★★★½

    Perfect, chaotic craziness from beginning to end. Cary Grant is great but Katharine Hepburn is the true star of the film. She is such a force that there is literally nothing that can stop her.
