Silver Screen Confidential (1½ Stars)
This is the worst film I've seen for a long time. Apart from the abysmal acting, the plot is so airy that the whole film could have been compressed into 15 minutes without losing anything. The film also does something unique, which was presumably intended to be artistic, but is extremely annoying. The film has no closing credits, which is true to the style of post-war films. To make up for this omission, after a short first scene there is an opening credits sequence which lasts 3 minutes 21 seconds! I was sitting tapping my fingers while name after name rolled over the black screen thinking, "This must be over now, it can't possibly last any longer".
