Weekly Wire
Now What?

Hold on a minute while we change reels... Wait a minute, you mean it's over? Where's the climax? Where's the thematic resolution? Where's the denouement? We're sorry, but the studios hated the rushes and pulled the plug on our budget. You can, however, continue reading about film-related topics by following many of the links provided on this page.

We're very proud of our Film Vault, which not only contains hundreds, going on thousands, of film reviews - it also allows for cross-referencing by director, genre, publication or date, and it provides links to related films at the bottom of each review. Film lovers have been known to spend hours browsing their way from succinct review to succinct review in the Film Vault. Some never come out. Ooh, scary.
