|61 T7||The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - Mar 11, 2014
"Mostly satisfying in the typical Lubitsch ways, but that ending feels so off..."
|73 T8||La Ville des pirates (1984) - Mar 10, 2014
"This both confirms a lot of the things i'm learning to love about Ruiz, but also sadly reaffirms my strong suspicions that The Golden Boat is a somewhat atypical work. I almost want to convince myself that this movie would seem just as funny as that one if i could speak the language, and there is the same type of nonsensical, absurd dialogue here, but nevertheless the overall effect is somewhat different. Fortunately what remains is Ruiz' beautiful, stylized cinamatography."
|36 T4||Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 (2014) - Mar 07, 2014
"The second half of this is even more sluggish and meandering than the first, with less Stacy Martin, so points off for that. Also Von Trier ends his epic statement with a bad punchline of a joke, which makes the whole thing even more insulting. That he tries to counteract all the latent misogyny with a half-hearted, simplistic "feminist" message comes across as more than slightly bizarre and maybe desperate."
|43 T5||Nymphomaniac (2013) - Mar 07, 2014
"For better or worse, this film is the closest thing to a grand summation of all of Von Trier's trademark themes, however questionable, that he will probably ever make. That said, that his magnum opus is insufferably didactic, ponderous and filled with insane ideas about women and sexuality is nothing if not par the course. For what it's worth Stacy Martin is really pretty, so there's that at least i guess?"
|0 T1||InAPPropriate Comedy (2013) - Mar 07, 2014
"The worst movie ever made, from the guy who gave us the ShamWow..."
|100 T10||The Golden Boat (1990) - Mar 06, 2014
"I've described Ruiz's films as 'convoluted and incoherent' in the past, and the same is certainly true here, but for whatever reason (drunk?) this seemed knuckle-bitingly hilariously amazing to me. As in, literally a perfect movie."
|42 T5||Walking and Talking (1996) - Mar 05, 2014
"It's kind of like the longest and dullest episode of Girls ever, except with Gen X yuppies instead of Millennial yuppies. Which is to say, it's inoffensive but bland. The cast is pretty good, although i have to admit Keener doesn't really work for me as a likable, sympathetic protagonist for whatever reason."
|28 T3||Your Friends & Neighbors (1998) - Mar 03, 2014
"I guess Neil Labute is sort of like Eric Rohmer, if Rohmer cared about being "edgy" and "shocking"..."
|35 T4||Une étudiante d'aujourd'hui (1966) - Mar 03, 2014|
|96 T10||The Collector (1967) - Mar 02, 2014
