Rififi (Du Rififi Chez les Hommes)

“I liked you, Macaroni,” the gangster tells a comrade who’s made a fatal slip-up in Rififi, “but you know the rules.” Indeed, every moviegoer in the world understands the rules in Jules Dassin’s 1955 crime classic. But Rififi (the word can be roughly translated as “fracas”) is more than  ...

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle

Moviegoers seeking respite from ponderous three-hour action epics could probably do worse than The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, a hyperactive update of the 1960's cartoon series featuring the flying squirrel and the dim-witted moose. The movie is like a fifty car pile-up of pop culture references, celebrity cameos,  ...
