"Not the most annoying Swanberg film, but still far from being something that feels particularly satisfying. It's a nice and dumb little comedy about sex. There's actually one or two moments that are genuinely amusing but also manage to register as personal. Kate Lyn Sheil explaining her chronic masturbating might be the funniest bit Swanberg has ever conceived. Some parts ring truer than his more self-consciously "personal" films. "
|85 T10||Upstream Color (2013) - May 20, 2013
"It's worth watching more than once and not because it's particularly hard to follow (or to read something deeper into it) but because the best moments go by so fast. There's a nice love story somewhere beneath all the science fiction and philosophy. It's not that the characters aren't fleshed out enough (their opaqueness lends to something more spontaneous and beautiful) but instead there's just not ENOUGH of that stuff. Amy Seimetz is a goddess. "

"It's a clever enough caper, but this is seriously the most infuriating film from a formal level. But Nolan sees these clever ideas as the most staggering developments in all of human thought. Maybe not really, but he certainly constructs his film in such a fashion. Take away the music (seriously, the WORST FUCKING THING EVER) and take away some of the philosophical posturing and you got a smart enough genre picture. Instead, we get a film that wants to constantly remind you of its importance. "
|72 T6||Pieta (2012) - Apr 23, 2013
"It starts out as a self-parody of Kim's ID-driven style (we get suicide and masturbation within the first two minutes) but it weirdly switches gears towards the 40 minute mark and becomes an almost gentle and touching drama about a mother and a son. Then again, this isn't really a movie about characters, though, perhaps a cinematic representation of Kim's insane head. It's a personal movie from a really earnest artist and it might seem sloppy to most, but Kim has never been more confident."
|67 T5||Medea (1969) - Apr 22, 2013
"A hyper-real reconstruction of something that never happened, an ethnographic study of a group of people who never existed. It has potential to be Pasolini's most poetic work, but it runs out of steam."
|51 T3||Mardi Gras Massacre (1978) - Apr 17, 2013
"Fascinatingly inept and artless, almost Brechtian, but let's not be silly here, it's mostly just a super cheap horror movie. "
|70 T6||A Lawless Street (1955) - Apr 10, 2013|
