  • Agustina's rating of the film The Night of the Generals

    My favorite all time movie. I've watched it more than ten times and it gets better with each viewing. Each sub-plot in the film is carried superbly, Major Grau has got to be one of the best characters ever depicted on film and General Tanz, well... let's just say that O'Toole staring at Van Gogh's self portrait is priceless. Great score by Maurice Jarre and polished locations, larger than life.
