    excellent and highly recommended

    Today, the movies are all about special effects and I'm sick of it. Nightmare Alley was written during an era of movies that had plot, story, morals, and development of character. With no special effects whatsoever, this film is better than any movie I've seen in the last thirty years.
    I never give out any details about a movie because it will spoil the story to know anything about it before viewing it; with that said i can simply say that this is a highly recommended movie and its a must see (not for children.)

    Brother I was made for it.......

    I love actors who have the ability to reinvent themselves. To really appreciate this film, you should see some of Power's other work first. For instance, go check out the Eddie Duchin story or Zoro. See how well he plays the positive, lovable, moral character. Then, check out this film about the seedy world of carnival folk. Ty stars as Stan, an overly ambitious carnie stagehand who becomes a great nightclub mindreader. Eventually Stan's ambition overcomes his sense morality and he begins to use his "special gift" to take advantage of people, with disastrous consequences. Without giving the film away, one of my favorite lines is Ty's "Brother I was made for it" line near the end. Check it out.
