What are people saying?

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film Town on Trial

    I know little of Guillermin; from what I've gathered he went big budget and fizzled. His only film I've seen, Rapture (1965), blew my freaking mind; it's master work. This is a who-done-it murder-mystery, very early career, and it's a fun ride. Some incredible camera work, sequences of scenes that continuously pass into one another quickly on the sly. It'll make you laugh more than sweat. Screened this on 16mm. 3.5
