|7 99%||Woman in the Dunes (1964) - Jul 26, 2008
"The sand - it's beautiful, it's horrible, it's everywhere, it's everything."
|6 95%||Bellissima (1951) - Aug 25, 2010
"Anna Magnani gives an absolutely staggering performance (as usual). The final scenes are sublime."
|6 95%||Il Bidone (1955) - Jul 23, 2010
"A man nearing fifty is confronted with his life and what he's made of it, and in doing so, tries to make things right. Fellini is most known for the fantastic and extravagance of his later work, but he is no less profound when he keeps it simple."
|7 99%||Edvard Munch (1974) - Jul 20, 2010
"Absolutely jaw-dropping in its treatment of the man, his work, environment, and the technique in which the filmmaker conveys this all. I cannot get these uncomfortable, despondent stares out of my mind. The editing is especially phenomenal."
|6 95%||Devi (1960) - Sep 02, 2009
"In some ways I wish more was done with the material, but what's here is fascinating. And the ending is of the kind that will most likely never leave my mind."
|6 95%||My Darling Clementine (1946) - Nov 23, 2008
"Truly iconic photography, flawless performances, and also remarkably well-paced to boot - one of the finest reminders as to how important John Ford was to filmmaking."
|6 95%||Still Life (2006) - May 17, 2010
"Seamlessly blends the mundane with significant themes and low-voiced, emotive force. Jia has most certainly developed his craft into something here."
|4 54%||Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Dec 26, 2012
"Well, that was an unexpected disappointment. I think the major fault would be too much plot, not enough character, & outside of the choreography it's really not that well made (I'll take Minnelli over Donen any day). The lavish, penultimate musical piece that Kelly adores so was also done much better in An American In Paris."
|6 95%||Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011) - Sep 03, 2012
"Passion as a force of life. And yes, this made me seriously hungry despite never enjoying the minor sushi I've come across."
|6 95%||Millennium Actress (2001) - Sep 04, 2009
"The way Kon constructs this story is just jaw-dropping. I went in expecting fluff, what I got is the furthest thing from it."
