Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison

2 years, 4 months ago at Apr 17 20:38
Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison plays like a lukewarm reheating of The African Queen, with most of the energy and wit comes through the performances of Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum, and not John Huston’s weirdly sleepy direction. Normally a dark wit with a peppy sense of pacing and tone, Huston seems entrapped by the earnestness of this piece, and it’s straight up hokum that needed a slightly tra... read more
