Slaughterhouse-Five is a masterly film, triumphantly original, wittily humane and piercingly cogent
George Roy Hill
The Sting, with Paul Newman and Robert Redford, strings together the chapters of a Saturday-afternoon serial, each with its own cliffhanger, and we’re invited to wait around to see what the happy twosome will do next. The happy twosome seem to have something for each other, and for most of the rest of the world, that I don’t tune in to.

The author reviews two film adaptations of science fiction novels, ‘Clockwork Orange,’ by Anthony Burgess and ‘Slaughterhouse-Five,’ by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
