    Separate Tables

    ★★

    This film has many great things in it: Rita Hayworth, Wendy Hiller, Rod Taylor as a young man kept away from his studies by his horny girlfriend — but like its theme song, it is extremely corny and dated. Deborah Kerr’s performance as a tragic spinster is nothing short of unforgivable, bless her.

    ★★★★½

    I was screaming internally (in a good way) during the entirety of this film. So many striking images and ideas touching on something so elemental, it’s like watching a dream you once had. All of it bewitching, in large part thanks to Rod Taylor’s wild charisma. Though if I had a time machine I would probably go back to 1960 and tell Mr. Taylor not to turn down the role of James Bond.

    Soporific, monotonous, embarrassing. Similar in some ways to Nolan’s films but with *all* edges smoothed out. Never daring to go in any particular direction or just make a decision, it ends up being a big, murky, vague nothing. No personality. No impact. It also has one of the worst shot and edited car chases I've seen in a long time.

    This is a horror movie.
