  • The Razor's Edge - 1946

    If you're looking for a break from the usual fare of gunfire and carchases, computer graphics and slo-mo running from expanding fireballs, you might want to check this one out.

    It is a very good adaptation of a truly excellent book. Terrific performances all around, especially from Clifton Webb and Ann Baxter (who actually won an Oscar for her role). Tyrone Power isn't bad, either.

    Obviously, the movie doesn't delve as deeply into philosophy as the book does, but the story is still fascinating; it's about life and death, love and selfishness, souls rising and descending, and society and the individual.

    Very resonant stuff. Especially the book. But the movie's good, too.

    So how's the Bill Murray version?
