Posted Oct 30, 2004
80% Videodrome (1983) " By the time it reaches its...inevitable-feeling conclusion, 'Videodrome' has become more than a mere horror film--it's an indictment of everyone represented by its characters." — culturevulture.net
Posted Sep 29, 2004
94% Lancelot of the Lake (1974) " Bresson strips away frippery to such an extent that it should be a coma-inducing slog, but it's not." — culturevulture.net

93% To Live and Die in L.A. (1985) " Action set-pieces are brilliantly blocked and shot, but never to the detriment of the unnerving unspooling of the universally unsavory cast of characters. " — culturevulture.net

—— I.K.U. (2001) " It's as if the producers were ashamed of what they were up to, and thought they could disguise it by blanketing the thing with the trappings of science fiction." — culturevulture.net
Posted Aug 5, 2002
71% Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars (Bowie '73 with the Spiders from Mars) (1973) " It's just a really good rock concert. In 1973, that was enough." — culturevulture.net
Posted Jul 9, 2002
67% Silent Running (1972) " As a time-capsule, it's mildly diverting; as farce, it's terrific; as a parable, it's utterly useless." — culturevulture.net

47% The Fluffer (2003) " The whole package would have played better if the movie had bothered answering some of the questions it delicately raises." — culturevulture.net

100% The Big Heat (2001) " The movie's heart is cold and blackened, not only by the tragedies which befall its characters but by an all-consuming fatalism and futility." — culturevulture.net

Posted Oct 8, 2001
85% The Man with the Golden Arm (1955) " Proves that drug stories aren't exclusively the territory of hip, nihilistic '90s film-school wunderkinder." — culturevulture.net
Posted Sep 17, 2001
95% Tirez sur le pianiste (Shoot the Piano Player) (1960) " a fascinating study of flawed humanity" — culturevulture.net
Posted Jul 30, 2001
100% The Bank Dick (1940) " It's still great, exhibiting a far superior sense of wit and comic timing than virtually any film released in the last twenty years." — culturevulture.net
