What are people saying?

  • Mugino's rating of the film Half Moon Street

    How sad that only half of Paul Theroux's "Half Moon Street" should make it to the screen, but obviously Swaim was only attentive to the titillation of upscale sex. To quote the NYTimes review of "Doctor Slaughter", it's reduced to, "smart girls can be wild in bed, or smart girls aren't as smart as they think". Weaver and Caine deserved better.
