Rankings

1)Seven Days in May (Manchurian gets all the glory, but I prefer 7 Days)
2)The Manchurian Candidate
3)Ronin (undervalued thriller and the best car chases put on celluloid)
4)Black Sunday
5)The Challenge (an 80's favorite, nearly forgotten samurai thriller, great performance by Toshiro Mifune, music by Jerry Goldsmith, where's the freakin' dvd!?)
6)French Connection II (naff sequel, Gene Hackman- superlative)
7)Grand Prix (wheres the dvd?)
8)Birdman of Alcatraz
9)The Train
10)Prophecy (rubbish eco-horror-thriller, but it's a guilty fave)

3. Seven Days In May - A-
4. Seconds - B+
5. Ronin - B (extra credit for killer car chase)

Own - 0

Another I wouldn't put on a "great" director list, but this isn't my list Posted Image and I do think highly of several of his films. I am interested in seeing Birdman of Alcatraz, Young Savages, and morbidly interested in The Island of Dr. Moreau.

In order of merit:


1.The Manchurian Candidate (1962) ****
2.Seven Days in May (1964) ***1/2
3.The Train (1964) ***1/2
4.Seconds (1966) ***1/2
5.Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) ***
6.The Young Savages (1961) ***
7.Grand Prix (1966) ***
8.All Fall Down (1962) ***
9.Black Sunday (1977) ***
10.I Walk the Line (1970) **1/2
11.The Gypsy Moths (1969) **1/2
12.French Connection II (1975) **1/2
13.The Fixer (1968) **1/2
14.Ronin (1998) **1/2
15.Reindeer Games (2000) **1/2
16.The Horsemen (1971) **
17.The Fourth War (1990) **
18.The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996) **


After a spectecularly fruitful decade (1957-66), sadly everything seemed to go downhill for Frankenheimer, although he did recuperate some lost ground in the mid-70s and again in the late 90s.

I've got SEVEN DAYS IN MAY and FRENCH CONNECTION II to watch on DVD and I also need to upgrade my disc of THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE. Frankly some of the ones I've listed - GRAND PRIX, THE HORSEMEN, BLACK SUNDAY, THE FOURTH WAR - are merely a blur in my memory nowadays...

As for the rest of his films, I'm most interested in watching THE ICEMAN COMETH (1973), PROPHECY (1979) and 52 PICK UP (1986).
