94 T10 Gummo (1997) - Jul 03, 2013
"A simultaneously preposterous and ulta-realist portrayal of mock- southern u.s. lower-class youth. Effectively both a haunting anthropological document and a gorgeous, stunning piece of the most poetic and visionary cinematic expressionism. Extraordinary and bold-- simultaneously misanthropic and sympathetic."
73 T9 Troll 2 (1990) - Jun 20, 2014
"If the only films that matter formally are auteur films, this -special- creative vision is a formal success, proverbial colors flying. If you think this is simply a "bad" movie, and lacking all self-awareness, you're a fucking idiot."
39 T5 Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) - Apr 17, 2016
"Tense and engaging, with very good technicals. Entertaining if nihilistic depiction of characters who, once having enjoyed the spoils, purpose, and thrills of criminality, find themselves [whether for reasons psychological or sociological] helpless to escape it, and can only delay the inevitable [it makes no difference whether just or not] deserts. Make no mistake though, this is, ultimately, simply a cops-and-robbers, popcorn flick, but taken for such, you can't do much better."
85 T10 Taxi Driver (1976) - Jul 03, 2013
"Here, seems as appropriate a place as any to leave this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V8H9uaQFBE"
78 T10 Solaris (1972) - Jul 30, 2013
"[BWV 639]."
72 T9 Caravaggio (1986) - Apr 30, 2015
"Gotta love the 'Vag."
81 T10 Au hasard Balthazar (1966) - Nov 25, 2013
""A sigh, a silence, a word, a sentence, a din, a hand, the whole of your model, his face, in repose, in movement, in profile, full face, an im­mense view, a restricted space. . . . Each thing exactly in its place: your only resources." - Bresson, "Notes sur le cinematographe.""
82 T10 It's a Wonderful Life (1946) - Jul 03, 2013
"For me, the end result completely negates any disgusting wholesomeness, whatever dubious morality, classic-family/xmas-movie status, etc., because underneath, this is deeply cinematic and haunting film. As always, the only way Capra knows to achieve that end is via wildly exaggerated Dickensian sentimentality, but his art is elevated to true greatness because his manipulation, on par with von Trier and Hitchcock, is so pure and -so- cinematic. Honestly a joy to watch."
52 T7 The Room (2003) - Nov 11, 2015

68 T9 Die Dritte Generation (1979) - Jan 29, 2015
""I recently had a dream that capitalism invented terrorism to force the state to protect it better. Very funny, isn't it?""
