For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

The Falcon and the Snowman

The Falcon and the Snowman

The Falcon and the Snowman purports to tell a true story, which, while interesting, lacks motivations for the main characters. It also doesn’t exactly possess the highest quality production values, and the film seems oddly dated for one of such recent vintage. Still, Timothy Hutton and especially Sean Penn give pretty good performances.
