100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"For those who are passionate about cinema, one of the great challenges is explaining the brilliance of Douglas Sirk to those who take films completely at face value. Sirk's passionate romantic dramas, referred to patronisingly as 'women's pictures' in their day, understandably seem overwrought, cheesy and saccharine to anyone for whom plot is the be-all-and-end-all of what makes a good movie. Many modern reviews by fans of Sirk's work focus on his deliberate self-awareness but overstate just how"

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2010 (50 movies items)

"THE CLASSICS YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN BY NOW Jane Wyman A significant moment in Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows finds Wyman’s Cary Scott reading aloud the famous “the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation” passage from Thoreau’s Walden, a text that serves as a guidebook to life for Cary’s new lover Ron Kirby (Rock Hudson) and his bohemian friends.
