Bride of Frankenstein
1935

It is truly a masterpiece.

Phantom of the Paradise
1974

It’s Brian De Palma at his 1970s best.

The Night of the Hunter
1955

It’s the only film Charles Laughton ever directed and it’s brilliant and haunting.

My Favorite Year
1982

It’s uplifting and smart with great writing and acting.

Mighty Joe Young
1949

I like it better than King Kong. I know that is blasphemy, but it has Ray Harryhausen’s best work while working under Willis O’Brien.
