"Filmmaking by soundtrack, and faces, and jive-talkin thugs. In other words, a Tarantino flick, and possibly his best. The considerable differences between Pulp Fiction and this, as well as the permeating influence of the former, makes a comparison hard to judge though."
|3 30%||The Room (2003) - Aug 18, 2012
"Take out sex scenes, those spectacular Golden Gate Bridge shots, & guys throwing a football around and I think you have 40 minute movie. Entertainment value is mostly achieved through the extremes of narcissism that the plot steadily builds on until that hilarious finish."
|6 95%||The Comb (1990) - Aug 31, 2012
"A perfectly realized (and rationalized) bit of dream logic."
|6 95%||Love and Death (1975) - May 04, 2008
""To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down." - Words to live by."
|6 95%||The Man With a Movie Camera (1929) - Feb 28, 2009
"An undeniably essential part of cinematic history. Seeing this in 1929 must have been the equivalent of a biblical miracle."
|6 95%||Hud (1963) - Oct 12, 2008
"The writing, performances, and photography are some of the greatest you can ask from a film. The theme of the changing west is played out flawlessly and Newman is his charismatic self, encompassing a bastard; a character that would normally dominate a film but becomes subdued by a formidable supporting cast. I can hardly find any fault in this, basically perfect."
|4 54%||Superman: The Movie (1978) - Jun 26, 2012
"Great beginning. I've always remembered the back story most of all. The rest of it (and some of the Smallville sections) rivals Footloose as the corniest flick I've ever experienced. Superman's most authentic cinematic outing."
|7 99%||The Red and the White (1967) - May 07, 2010
"Becomes something much more than its basic subject and period - an indictment on war itself - on the complicity and base nature invoked in all involved. The waltz scene is one of the most unsettling scenes I have ever seen, among many others here. There is no clear reprieve to be found for anyone. No hope."
|6 95%||Umberto D. (1952) - May 28, 2008
"Stepping off his more naturalistic neorealism [present in Bicycle Thieves and earlier works], De Sica injects that same tone and emotion with cinematography that seems to be on another stratosphere of just about anything I've ever seen. "
|6 95%||California Split (1974) - Apr 05, 2009
"An honest depiction of the situation and some killer chemistry from Segal/Gould. Great early Altman."
