What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film A Place to Go

    ** 1/2. Rita Tushingham steals the show in this Idontknowhowtoqualifyit Relph/Dearden production. Social drama, crime movie or romance ? Michael Sarne, the future director of Myra Breckinridge sings two songs, the first one very modern (for 1962 I mean), the other one intended to older people. In fact, A Place to Go is a consensual movie that could have been a lot more. Already forgotten. Unfortunately.
