Submarine review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 04:01 (A review of Submarine)

It's a self-confident work for the first-time director, Richard Ayoade, whose purpose I think is to capture that delicate moment in some adolescent lives when idealism and trust lead to tentative experiments.

Melancholia review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:38 (A review of Melancholia)

Plenty of moments in Melancholia are painfully funny. Some moments are even painful to watch, but there was never a moment when I thought about the time or my next movie or did not care about the characters or had anything less than complete interest. Awesome special effects emulating the terrifying splendor of the end of days collide with an austere portrait of the varying reactions and outlooks that people are apt to experience as they stare death irrefutably in the face. It's an oddly tasteful, composed take on doomsday, utilizing the inexplicable influence of depression to approach and decode a hostile subject. With Lars Von Trier, I wouldn't expect anything less.

Phil Ochs: There But for Fortune review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:30 (A review of Phil Ochs: There But for Fortune)

A stimulating reflection on the American countercultural protest movement examined through the prism of one of its most impassioned and underappreciated voices. Captures both Ochs' glory days and his sad and rapid decline, communicating the brilliance of his songs (he wrote hundreds, and recorded 7 albums in his short career) as well as the less savory aspects of his life. Kenneth Bowser's loving but honest documentary gives him his proper due as an important artist, without sugarcoating his troubled, and eventually self-destructive, nature.

The Ides of March review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:27 (A review of The Ides of March)

The Ides of March is a pulse-racing thriller that hits where it hurts. Clooney's performance is exceptional and Gosling is terrific in an all-stops-out role. Even though all the supporting elements of a superior film are here, the actual plot that everything is at the service of is disappointing. The texture of reality and the sheen of fine craft disguise this for a while, but not forever.Clooney and cast are an absolute triumph, but even their solid and engaging performances can't mask the serviceable but thin and unremarkable plot that links them.

We Need To Talk About Kevin review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:25 (A review of We Need To Talk About Kevin)

Guaranteed to haunt you for days, and possibly prompt a rethink on your position on parenthood.There are so many great things happening on almost every level of this movie, from Swinton's haunting, magnetic and tremendously vulnerable performance. Tilda Swinton delivers one of the finest performances of her career as an American woman grappling with grief and guilt... once a bohemian free spirit brimming with acerbic intelligence, [she] looks as though she's been flayed raw by tragedy. Although this is more a psychological drama than a horror in the traditional sense, it possesses an ability to shock that most modern chillers can't touch.

Life in a Day review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:20 (A review of Life in a Day)

Carved out of cyber-reality and global in reach, this fast-paced documentary is shaped as much by Internet savvy as traditional filmmaking, which doesn't make the experience of it any less satisfying, or the implications any less provocative. Despite some vapid music, it's remarkable how stimulating and fresh the result actually is, thanks mainly to regular jolts of human weirdness.The many windows into different lives, capturing moments humorous and sad, ordinary and momentous, build into quite a moving film.

Enter the Void review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:18 (A review of Enter the Void)

The whole thing is a deliberate - and at times patience-testing - act of provocation, but Noe's trip to the outer-limits of cinematic convention yields something defiantly personal and unique. Broken down to its base elements, it's a detective-ghost story, not unlike M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense (1999), albeit one driven by some dazzling filmmaking bravado.A mash-up of the sacred, the profane, and the brain-dead, Enter the Void is addictive.

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:13 (A review of Black Biscuit)

Are you a Black Biscuit ?
Featuring today's modern outlaws - These are the outsiders of society. And their all stars.
Director Fabrizio Federico has created a fact feature film about money, sex, dignity, and dreams.
Spotlighting non-actors, and poetically shot; it will show you the beauty of what we miss around us everyday.
Black Biscuit is an ideal......... You choose
Money or your Potential ?

Gummo review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:12 (A review of Gummo)

Problematic, troubling, dangerous even, but breathtakingly original, and absolutely true to the times. The cutting edge doesn't get any sharper than this.

Tarnation review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 6 November 2011 03:10 (A review of Tarnation)

Everyone shouls see this movie just to realize where the future of cinema is headed. Certainly one of the strangest and most interesting movies of the year, and I suspect that in years to come a number of other strange and interesting movies will show traces of its influence.
