94% Baby It's You (1983) With its dark realism, rock 'n' roll delirium, and gutsy humor, Baby, It's You builds up to the mythic resonance of the finest American coming-of-age films. - Vanity Fair EDIT

No Score Yet Ingenjör Andrées Luftfärd (The Flight of the Eagle) (1982) As in Troell's earlier films The Emigrants and The New Land, we experience the new world along with the travelers. Despite the aeronauts' failings, we never lose our sense of connection with them. - Vanity Fair EDIT

83% Tender Mercies (1983) He's found no miracles in the good country life, in the Bible, or even in the love of a good woman. But the astonishing purity of Duvall's performance, itself a kind of marvel, allows us to believe that Sledge has found a home. - Vanity Fair EDIT

88% The King of Comedy (1983) As we see how Rupert's pursuit of success is going to turn out, The King of Comedy becomes an easy little fable of our terrible romance with fame. - Vanity Fair EDIT

77% La Notte di San Lorenzo (Night of the Shooting Stars) (The Night of San Lorenzo) (1982) It's a bit long-winded, melodramatic, and meandering. Still, like a verismo opera, it sweeps us along, leaving us as forlorn as Galvano when the world returns to normal. - Vanity Fair EDIT
