Posted Nov 8, 2007
4/4 No Score Yet Diabel (The Devil) (1972) Whether taken as a historical drama or a horror film, The Devil is unabashedly a parable about misappropriated anger against the forces of evil. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Oct 10, 2007
3/4 73% From Beyond (1986) Faithful to that netherworld of Lovecraft's fiction where otherworldly monsters lurk just under the fabric of our reality. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 29, 2007
3/4 100% Spider Baby (1968) Though hampered by bad distribution deals and multiple title changes, word of mouth helped Spider Baby to connect with fans of schlock cinema. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 29, 2007
1/4 42% Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (1973) Clark's first film is memorable only for its catchy title. ‐ Slant Magazine

Posted Sep 27, 2007
4/4 93% Deliverance (1972) This man-versus-nature story is also about man indulging his most uncivilized instincts, and in their various ways the four men on the canoe trip are transformed. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 27, 2007
3.5/4 No Score Yet Who Can Kill a Child? (Quin puede matar a un nio?) (1976) A completely unheralded classic of bleak 1970s horror cinema. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 10, 2007
3/4 No Score Yet Na Srebrnym Globie (1988) It becomes a bleak comic spit into the face of organized religion, organized society, and even organized narrative. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 4, 2007
3.5/4 100% Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo detstvo) (1962) Even in this, his first feature, we see that Andrei Tarkovsky is compelled by memories of precious things. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jul 27, 2007
2/4 76% Sunshine (2007) Despite all that talent on display, Sunshine is a philosophical blank slate. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jul 3, 2007
4/4 100% The Philadelphia Story (1940) Is The Philadelphia Story about cutting Katharine Hepburn down to size? ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2007
2.5/4 40% Phantasm: Lord of the Dead (1994) Don Coscarelli outdoes the humor of John Hughes in what feels like a more honest version of the gleeful sadism in Home Alone. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2007
3/4 70% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) 28 Weeks Later rolls in like a poisonous dust cloud of nihilism. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted May 9, 2007
3/4 92% The Caine Mutiny (1954) It's like the well-constructed house that's not meant to be distinctive, but was made to endure. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted May 9, 2007
3/4 68% Flandres (2007) The idea of "home" as the root of all our desires exists in counterpoint to the war scenes, and Flanders seems to wonder about those desires. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted May 2, 2007
3/4 100% Jane Eyre (1944) A well-constructed piece of studio work, with vivid black-and-white cinematography under matte painting skies that creates a turbulent, oppressive mood. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 30, 2007
4/4 70% Phantasm: Remastered (2016) Phantasm can be viewed as a haunting fable of an adolescent grappling with his fear of death. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 18, 2007
3.5/4 89% Thieves Like Us (1974) Each scene plays out with equal measure given to humor, pathos, eccentricity of character, the unpredictability of life, and the blundering work of getting through the day as a human being. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 18, 2007
3/4 82% The Chocolate War (1988) The Chocolate War is reminiscent of another kind of movie that one wishes could be jump-started again: Angry Young Man films. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 15, 2007

Posted Apr 13, 2007

Posted Mar 31, 2007
3/4 83% Night of the Comet (1984) his endearingly hokey low-budget B-movie comes with a high nostalgia factor from the Reagan era ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Mar 13, 2007
2.5/4 88% The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2007) As a document of the shape of political thought, the film is successful; but as a living, beating heart about a populace living through a time of upheaval and confusion, it's mediocre. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Mar 12, 2007
29% Tideland (2006) This two-disc set is sure to keep Gilliam's few Tideland fans buzzing for some time. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2007
2/4 26% Daddy's Little Girls (2007) Kindness, graciousness, nurturing, and support is the message for couples and community, so even if it's not saying anything new under the sun, all that syrup makes the cardboard taste better. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 14, 2007
1/4 15% Hannibal Rising (2007) The more we learn about the bogeyman, the less terrifying he becomes. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 7, 2007

Posted Sep 27, 2006
1.5/4 11% All The King's Men (2006) This is the stuff of soap operas, not serious cinema and certainly not great literature. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 21, 2006
3/4 87% The Last King of Scotland (2006) Provides a vivid snapshot of Uganda and a tour-de-force portrayal of a creature who is all the more horrifying because his evil is so recognizable, and so chillingly embracing and warm. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 18, 2006
2.5/4 80% Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles (2006) This one's a long, slow ride down an all too familiar road. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 31, 2006

Posted Aug 22, 2006
2/4 76% Factotum (2006) Flip on the Independent Film Channel any day of the week, any hour, and chances are you'll find a movie like Factotum. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 19, 2006
3.5/4 No Score Yet Satellite (2006) Satellite is about the idealism of love and how that is placed within the complex and contradictory real world. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 8, 2006
2/4 39% Calvaire (The Ordeal) (2006) While The Ordeal can't pass itself off as an art-house horror about the nature of love among the cannibals, it sometimes has a sick sexual frisson that resonates. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 5, 2006
2.5/4 47% Miami Vice (2006) Recent examples of slim premises that boasted strong and muscular cinematic style, not to mention a sly sense of humor Miami Vice generally lacks, were Cellular and Red Eye. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jul 26, 2006
3.5/4 No Score Yet Culloden (The Battle of Culloden) (2003) Watkins continually questions why wars are fought, and what the soldiers believe, and what the authorities say, and whether these things add up. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jul 25, 2006
4/4 92% The War Game (1966) Watkins's images are shrewd propaganda. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jul 25, 2006
2/4 46% Edmond (2005) Like Paul Haggis's Crash, the characters speak their minds so fully (or lie about their feelings so transparently) that the stuff which should be bubbling under the surface is constantly rising in fiery tirades. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jul 7, 2006
3/4 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) Even though scene for scene it sticks very close to Philip K. Dick's counterculture classic, A Scanner Darkly feels much more like the earnest theorizing of Richard Linklater in Waking Life mode. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 29, 2006
3.5/4 100% Öszi almanach (Almanac of Fall) (1984) If we subscribe to the idea that the profiteering of man leads to the death of an absent God's morals, the unrest of Almanac of Fall lays down the first stones. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 29, 2006
2/4 No Score Yet Zhmurki (Dead Man's Bluff) (Blind Man's Bluff) (2005) Ironic, politically incorrect, and anarchic, with characters wandering around waving two guns in the air like Eastern European Quentin Tarantino creations. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 27, 2006
3.5/4 90% Trilogy of Terror (1975) It's the Karen Black Show! ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 20, 2006
2/4 No Score Yet The Beast Must Die (1974) This B-movie werewolf tale from British horror studio Amicus was a blatant attempt to compete with their equally low-budget competitor AIP studios. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 19, 2006
2.5/4 60% Asylum (1972) Asylum tries telling similar tales (twice) and comes up pathetically short in the scare department. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 19, 2006
2.5/4 60% And Now the Screaming Starts (1973) Slow moving but frequently lurid. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 19, 2006
1/4 27% The Omen (2006) This latest unnecessary remake of a minor horror flick lacks even the benefit of novelty. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 4, 2006
2/4 69% Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man (2006) The concert achieves mixed success, lurching back and forth between earnest folk renditions of Cohen classics versus twitchy, indulgent freak shows and post-punk gravitas. ‐ Slant Magazine
