1. Le Corbeau, directed by Henri-George Clouzot (10/10)
2. The Ox-Bow Incident, directed by William A. Wellman (10/10)
3. Shadow of a Doubt, directed by Alfred Hitchock (8/10)
4. Heaven Can Wait, directed by Ernst Lubtisch (4/10)
It’s only intermittently funny (though there are gags throughout), it’s preposterous (even if Hell existed, Satan as a concierge? Seriously?), it’s so…I mean, everyone is rich and spoiled and ridiculous. I don’t know how this is a classic. And it just goes to show you what a crock the Oscars are when this is the kind of fluff that got nominated. Dreck, even if it looks nice.
5. Cabin in the Sky, directed by Vincente Minelli, Busby Berkeley (4/10)
This is the most sophisticated view of human morality. Read the review of Cabin in the Sky.
