Richard Donner – Twinky AKA Lola (1970)

In swinging 1960s London, 16-year-old high school student Lola (Susan George) does more than simply read the erotic literature penned by 39-year-old American Scott Wardman (Charles Bronson). She tracks down the author and playfully seduces him, to the great consternation of her parents (Paul Ford, Kay Medford) once they learn of the relationship. The unlikely lovebirds eventually get married and wend their way to New York City, but their relationship grows increasingly tenuous. Read More »

Mervyn LeRoy – Moment to Moment (1965)

This is a good movie in the Hitchcock vein, in which small details form the key to intense pathos. Will the husband notice the thing she mentioned in passing? Will her child inadvertently play with the wrong toy? Will the best friend keep the story straight? It takes a tangled web of lies and omissions to keep silent an impulsive affair–and a possible murder–when everything is so interconnected. No real villains here, but faulted humans trying to be happy, and not upset the house of cards that comprise their private lives. Good performances by Honor Blackman and Jean Seberg. You will be on the edge of your seat, and clutching a hankie at the same time. Read More »
