|60 T5||Trance (1998) - Apr 25, 2017
"Something about this doesn't quite manage to gel, but it nevertheless solicits a certain level of fascinated attention from the viewer (or, this viewer). Ken Russell is an apt comparison to make. I imagine that being most pertinent to films I haven't seen yet, Gothic and The Lair of the White Worm. This doesn't quite cohere, but I'm willing to accept this as a remarkable piece of unsuccessful art, which is one of my favourite things, even if I can never manage to grant a truly favourable score."
|45 T3||Demonlover (2002) - Apr 25, 2017
"Some intriguing, and often downright perplexing, ideas are presented half coherently. I didn't really expect to find myself watching hentai when I threw this on."
|70 T7||Rembrandt Laughing (1988) - Apr 23, 2017
"A typical Jostian narrative form that is rather beautifully inflected with experimental techniques. It never amounts to anything metaphorical, expressly intellectual, or opaque, which I think is a laudable achievement. I mean, Jost is hardly what you'd call 'accessible', even for most cineastes, but the seamless combination of poetic circularity and narrative linearity are, at the very least, evidence of their mutual relevance and applicability to one another: a healthy instruction."

|60 T5||Trouble Every Day (2001) - Apr 20, 2017
"I've been waiting to see more of the kind of digital imagery we get here. There are some wonderful moments in this, but, um, for the most part I don't get it. I also can't ignore that Vincent Gallo reminds me of Zappa, and how weird that makes everything."
|75 T8||Sure Fire (1990) - Apr 19, 2017
"This is the Jost I really like. For such a sparse script, and utilising non-professional actors, there's a strong sense of psychology underpinning everything. With Blair, in particular, expression and diction communicate a lot. If the resolution feels cheap and sensational, this is alleviated by the unfaltering strength of the total aesthetic design. That final shot is just wonderful."
|35 T2||En la ciudad de Sylvia (2007) - Apr 19, 2017
"Aside from making me feel slightly uncomfortable in its incessant fixation on the women who populate this city, I was really hoping for the same element of magic that permeates Tren de Sombras to be present here. What I got was yet another of these drab Euro minimalist enterprises. In this case it's not easy to conflate a contemplative state with the numbness of mind I felt."
