"Good actors, first-class locations, a stringent direction and the headstrong handwriting of the director guarantee excitement and amusement. Only in the last, simply overlong third of the main plot the characters gets in the way, the thing becomes predictable and the viewer misses that extra, the gimmick that seemed to promise a nearly two hours long film of this quality. The finale is good, the conclusion at best solid, the music Ennio Morricones amazingly bad. There is always a bitter aftertaste to the end credits, and this is certainly not by chance. It's the aftertaste of the film noir compared to the conventional thriller, which also fits in here and as which Frantic has always been marketed and rated. Definitely recommended for unique enjoyment!"
I'd like to get feedback from anyone on a list change: Bullitt (1968) in and Homicide (1991) out.
I'd like to hear further opinion from the board on Frantic's being in top 100. And what would it replace?
"Barbara" is outstanding. "Jerichow" is very good. The others I haven't seen yet.
