***NEW FEATURE*** I'm adding the library of laserdisc releases from Criterion as well. If it was only released as a laserdisc, I will make a note of it.
Il Posto (1961) 5/10
A key to ratings (based upon my personal preferences and tastes):
9 or 10 Brilliant, a must see
8 Despite some minor quibbles, this is a highly recommended film.
7 A good movie. There are problems in some areas, but all in all I enjoyed the experience quite a bit.
3 through 5 Not quite up to snuff. Often mixes excellent ideas with shoddy execution.
2 Just plain bad. There may be a sequence or two that belong to a better film, but in the end they can't come anywhere near saving the whole.
1 Terrible in every respect.
Note: Not all of these are obviously "family" films, but every movie is here for a reason. I hope to be adding small write-ups to each movie on this list shortly.
