  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Beehive

    Downbeat vignettes, sprinkled with gallows humor, following desperate characters through WWII Madrid. Adroitly keeps its huge cast and dozens of scenes from running into chaos - usually this sort of film has me annoyed at being unable to figure out who's who, what's going on - even if it necessarily whittles much of the sprawl from Cela's novel. The novelist himself appears in a cameo as "the man who invents words."
