This thread started as a general thread about Harlan and his work - and it still is. But recently I have been reading his book "WATCHING", which is full of essays - as opposed to reviews - about many different films. I thought it might be interesting to see what films he loved and what films he loathed, with a few choice quotes from his essays/reviews. I have to admit that some of the films he praises have vanished into obscurity - and he attacks some that are now regarded as classics. Do you agree with everything he says? Or is he talking out of his glass hand?
