Still Alice (2014)

A linguistics professor and her family find their bonds tested when she is diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.

Good, but not very thorough look at the descent into Alzheimer's and its impact; great vehicle to showcase Julianne Moore's talent, together with a capable supporting cast.

Shed No Tears (1948)

A wife convinces her husband to fake his death so they can collect on the life insurance.

Above-average noir drama with an especially ruthless femme fatale; lively and entertaining for what its is.

Auf Einmal (2016)

Karsten apparently has it settled. However, in a provincial German town, a moment of weakness turns to disaster, disappointment soon fuels anger, justice hides behind hypocrisy, and evil gradually unfolds.

Intriguing, Chabrol-like plot is carefully told with good cast and stylish photographed, the ending, however, is slightly dissatisfying.

The Sadist (1963)

Three people driving into Los Angeles for a Dodgers game have car trouble and pull off into an old wrecking yard where they are held at bay by a bloodthirsty psycho and his crazy girlfriend.

Tough, mean-spirited and quite effective low-budget thriller with good editing and cinematography (Vilmos Zsigmond!); Arch Hall Jr. is remarkable as the terrifying psychopath.

Maltin**1/2: "Taut little B picture...Hall is distressingly believable as the psycho.Imaginatively shot by Vilmos (billed as William) Zsigmond."
