All About Lily Chou-Chou (2002)
La Commune (2003)
"By whatever criteria you choose, La Commune certainly proves to be a film exhibiting a tremendous amount of chutzpah. It can be described quite simply as a black and white digital video French communist historico-improv subtitled movie... "
Wild Zero (2000)
The King Is Alive (2001)
"I spent much of the movie marvelling about how the form and style of the Dogme film fit perfectly into the story, and how none of the players seemed like they were pretending, even when they were being theatrical. "
La Captive (The Captive) (2003)
Foul King (2002)
Possible Worlds (2000)
"In short, Lepage's film suffers from being dry - both in terms of character and subject matter. It remains a watchable and interesting work, yet I see the film more as what could have been rather than what it turned out to be. "
Before Night Falls (2001)
"Schabel's most recent work fails to move me. While the story of Reinaldo Arenas is tragic enough to be interesting (and Javier Bardem's performance sympathetic) the film as a whole simply seems long and indulgent. "
The Goddess of 1967 (2000)
Sexy Beast (2000)
The Isle (2000)
"In the (genius) Coen Brother's film The Big Lebowski, Julianne Moore's character Maude is an avant garde artist who describes her painting as "strongly vaginal." Until The Isle, I thought that was simply a funny joke... "
Requiem for a Dream (2000)
In the Mood for Love (2001)
"How do you follow up with one of the most kinetic films ever made? The obvious answer would be to slow things down, take a more introspective and less visceral approach. In short, do something different. "
When Brendan Met Trudy (2001)
"The whole thing plays out a bit like an episode of Dream On, where film references are used in lieu of original thoughts or dialogue. The impact is, of course, directly correlated to whether or not you get what films are being referenced. "
George Washington (1994)
Ginger Snaps (2001)
"For most of its running time the film toys with all the standard conventions, providing some really fun and surprising dialogue. It's when it devolves into a "boys" movie, when the creature is fully seen and the killing begins, the movie tanks... "
Chasing Sleep (2000)
Signs & Wonders (2000)
Soldiers in the Army of God (2006)
"Tsui Hark does not disappoint. From dizzying camera plummets to strange slow motion or freezeframe hammer-to-the-face shots, the film is visceral and bombastic enough to keep the midnight crowds awake through it all. "
"A powerful film both intimate and epic, Kippur far exceeded my expectations. While I found his last film, Kadosh, to be overly melodramatic and drawn out, the mix of humour and horror in this film work well to create an extremely effective movie. "
"The film could have been an insightful examination of the East/West divide that kept Germany apart for almost half a century. Instead, the film's early potential slows to a halt, and the predictable machine of melodrama takes over..." "
