This Week's Review: "Patton"

Hollywood did not come up with anything remotely interesting for the weekend of September 15. The thought of squirming through a remake of “Predator” was not pleasant, so I used the time for a haircut. The haircut will last for about 90 days; not many movies survive in my skull that long.

I did use some of the weekend to watch “Patton” for the first time in three years. I saw the film for the first time in 1971 while I was working on my doctorate in Indiana. The film has held up for nearly a half-century, and I am still impressed by George C. Scott’s performance.

Next weekend, September 22, offers at least one potentially interesting film, “The House with a Clock in Its Walls.”
