  • Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Across the Bridge

    Quite good - the film disguises its Britishness quite well. Rod Steiger acts his arse off, Method-style, without being over-the-top Jewish as in The Pawnbroker. The doggie who causes his eventual downfall (or redemption as author Greene would have it, I suppose) is a fine actor (or actress - we can't see under his/her fur to check that one out - just because it's called Dolores doesn't mean it's not a drag-dog).
