91 98% The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933) - Sep 20, 2010
"Anyone who doubts Fritz Lang's stature as a technical innovator on par with Eisenstein or Hitchcock needs to see this, particularly the way he uses sound to suggest eerie shadowy presences off screen. Mabuse is heard but not seen. Then there is the hidden ticking time bomb. Hasn't aged a day. "
64 60% Labyrinth (1986) - Sep 21, 2010
"Clumsy, awkward and hamfisted in some respects (the script, the misjudged musical numbers, too many characters), Jim Henson's post Dark Crystal effort still boasts some of the most fascinating and imaginative puppetry work and set design ever seen in a feature. Highlights, the Escher relativity scene, the Fire Gang dance. Unique and worth seeing."
90 98% Cure (1997) - Aug 28, 2011
"One of the most scary things I have ever seen. Kurosawa reminds me of Cronenberg a bit in that his work feels genuinely dangerous. I am always a bit scared of what he is going to show me, but I cannot stop watching. "
76 93% A Serious Man (2009) - Apr 23, 2016
"A series of wry non-answers to the question 'what the fuck does God want from me?', this Jewish metaphysical comedy in the vein of a Midwestern, suburban Kafka is great fun, but nasty fun. As in the Book of Job, the sublime, incomprehensible voice of God ('speaking out of the whirlwind') appears in the cyclone at the end."
75 92% Let the Right One In (2008) - Jun 17, 2014
"Hitting that perfect note of creepy and touching that I had thought only Guillermo del Toro had in his back pocket, this exquisitely understated Swedish shocker manages to capture the terror, tenderness and poignancy of childhood and give it the purity and strangeness of a fable."
