The Singing Detective (2003)
Jumped a bit too quickly and unevenly between its stories, and Downey just came across as shoutily, shallowly annoyed rather than genuinely bitter. Made me want to have watched the whole of the original, but not to actually watch it.

The Third Man (1949)
Plot and dialogue is quite unfocused and flat, for Greene, but the film takes in a vivid few scenes and settings. Easy to forget that this was filmed in 1949, that what feels like an underused Vienna was fair enough at the time.
