3.5/5 51% The Zero Theorem (2014) The sort of Gilliam ideas that at one time were perceived as fanciful or witty are now the horror outside your front door or inside your computer monitor.‐

4.5/5 85% Santa Sangre (1989) What's probably most amazing about Santa Sangre is that most of it works, and almost never does it feel like it's being unsettling just for the sake of it.‐

3.5/5 71% The Woman (2011) There are times when the movie, through both image and sound, approaches an almost Lynchian type of unsettling nightmare.‐

3.5/5 48% Meet Monica Velour (2011) From a plot standpoint, there isn't much that's remarkable about it, yet its two central figures are so honestly drawn that they make up for any predictability along the way.‐

5/5 100% All About Eve (1950) In our celebrity-obsessed culture, it's possible that All About Eve is more important than ever. Scratch that. How about it's more entertaining than ever?‐

2/5 33% I Spit On Your Grave (2010) Pretty much across the board the characters are more interesting in the remake, but that's really only because they actually are characters to some degree, as opposed to the caricatures presented in the '78 version.‐

3/5 50% The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010) These folks -- both in front of and behind the camera -- really threw themselves into their work, and, provided you have an open mind, it shows. ‐

4/5 91% Time Bandits (1981) Time Bandits remains Fantasy 101, and a must-see for people who enjoy this kind of fare.‐

3.5/5 90% Crazy Heart (2009) The real star is Bridges, who plays not so much a layered character, but a man whom we instantly identify with and understand and want to watch.‐

3.5/5 64% Never Say Never Again (1983) The film's photography is pretty slick and the stuff in the Bahamas in particular has aged very well.‐

4.5/5 96% Being There (1979) The overall tone is one of light drama, and it's only through its situations that it becomes a sly, witty statement on society, politics and pop culture.‐
