Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
62/100 80% Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938) " Easily a tune every few minutes, all reliably executed, but the film's insistence on musical comprehensiveness leaves room only for the barest of character development." — Apollo Guide
Posted Sep 22, 2004
68/100 64% Coffee and Cigarettes (2004) " Falls flat as often as it makes magic, the cumulative effect as comforting as a night spent at your coffee shop taking in humanity's endlessly colourful social exchanges." — Apollo Guide
Posted Sep 22, 2004
61/100 86% Zatôichi (The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi) (2003) " Negates the possibility of legitimate suspense by denying the title character true challenges, and undercuts the impact of its melees with its purely CGI violence." — Apollo Guide
Posted Jul 15, 2004
81/100 72% Primer (2004) " Some audiences may resent a film in which we can't feel superior to anyone, but there's enough material here to keep you stuck at the water cooler for months." — Apollo Guide
Posted Jul 15, 2004
71/100 72% Open Water (2004) " Risks a disastrous anticlimax with its thoroughly unexpected conclusion, but it's an uncompromising approach one can't help but admire." — Apollo Guide
Posted Jul 15, 2004
71/100 61% Saved! (2004) " Ends up genuinely thought-provoking while putting the "fun" back in "fundamentalist."" — Apollo Guide
Posted Jul 15, 2004
79/100 78% The Saddest Music in the World (2004) " Guy Maddin's concocted a film that looks like it's been exhumed from a long-abandoned dusty archive, and that follows the logic only of its own internal interconnections." — Apollo Guide
