Movie Ratings and Reviews

Tokyo Story (Tôkyô monogatari)

My #28 film of all time. Ozu's masterpiece of family struggles and relationships.

The Seventh Seal (Det Sjunde inseglet)

My #90 film of all time. This is a thought provoking film alleogizing good and evil in a symbolic chess match.

Crna macka, beli macor (Black Cat, White Cat)

One of the funniest films i have ever seen. Kusturica's masterpiece in my opinion. He has never been better.

Angst Essen Seele auf (Ali: Fear Eats the Soul)

My #61 film of all time. This is Fassbinder's masterwork of race relations and marriage struggles.

Bande à part (Band of Outsiders)
½

This may be Godard's most well known film and deservedly so. It is so much fun and shot so cleverly.

Werckmeister Harmonies
½

This is one amazing piece of film gold. There is so much more than meets than eye. poetic, symbolic, and rewarding.

Night Watch (Nochnoi Dozor)

Really inventive and fresh, with a great mood. just give it a little time and this film really comes together nicely.

Marie Antoinette
½

Absolutely gorgeous to look at. Certainly not Coppola's finest, behind "The Virgin Suicide" and the amazing "Lost in Translation", but still an interesting film and take on this historical figure.

8 1/2
8 1/2 (1963)

My #27 film of all time. Fellini at his most bizarre and that is saying something. It is him also at his most poetic.

Owning Mahowny

Hoffman gives one of the most focused and on targer performances i've ever seen.

Nostalghia
Nostalghia (2013)
½

the final scene is one i will never forget. Tarkovsky may appear to meander but he is so so intentional.

Nobody Knows (Dare mo shiranai)
½

some of the best acting by children of all time. outstanding, entirely child cast.

Manderlay
Manderlay (2006)

not nearly as good, or inspired as Dogville but still very good.

The World's Fastest Indian
½

Hopkins is awe inspiring and inspirational in this wonderful little film.

C'est arrivé près de chez vous (Man Bites Dog) (It Happened in Your Neighborhood)

one of the darkest and unsettling movies you will ever see. but satirical and honest about our obsession with violence to a very poignant point.

Lawn Dogs
Lawn Dogs (1998)

magical and powerful. Lawn Dogs is a sleeper showcasing the early brilliance of both Sam Rockwell and Mischa Barton.

White Nights (Le Notti Bianche)

sad and wonderful. Mastroianni is always on.

Grand Hotel
Grand Hotel (1932)

Greto Garbo is screen gold.

Elephant
Elephant (2003)
½

disturbing and strangely beautiful portrait od a a school massacre by Van Sant.

American Psycho

At it's surface it is a messed up twisted film. At it's heart it's a complex satire of today's culture.
