What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Seventh Commandment

    It's quite remarkable how much film Irvin Berwick squeezes out of an obviously tiny B-movie budget, and this feat alone is testament to his filmmaking skill. 3.6* for this Quality Sleaze with a dubious moral lesson that pays no heed whatsoever to the Hays Code. This is the second time I have been surprisingly rewarded by Berwin, an unsung auteur of a misbegotten genre. Sadly, some of his films may be lost forever.
