Seconds

Might as well get thirds.


Thriller

Patrick Crain
Director John Frankenheimer camps in a unique place in the story of American film. Too young to be active during Hollywood’s last great period before it fell into stagnancy but too old to be considered part of the hot-shot New American Cinema movement, Frankenheimer instead navigated the Cold War cinema of the early sixties, crafting some of his best known work like The Manchurian Candidate and Birdman of Alcatraz. And for all of the accolades heaped upon those movies, for my money, 1966’s Seconds remains his crowning achievement.

Targets

A dead-on classic.


Thriller

Rod Lott

Inspired by the dirty doings of mass murderer Charles Whitman, 1968's once-controversial Targets is the first true film directed by Peter Bogdanovich and also — I think, despite Oscar love for his '70s work — his best. It's also one of Warner Archive's finest rescues from out-of-print oblivion yet.
