August 8, 2019
To Die For is a slickly savage look at contemporary life and the power of the media manipulators all around us.
October 26, 2018
In this wickedly funny look at TV-spawned celebrity-obsession, Nicole Kidman gives a breakthrough performance as a psychopathic Jane Pauley wannabe.
October 26, 2018
A smart black comedy that skewers America's fatal fascination with television and celebrity, it employs an unerring nasty touch to parody our omnipresent culture of fame. And it uses a rather unlikely combination of talents to do the job.
April 4, 2008
A grotesque black comedy.

As Jimmy, the teen sap who falls hard for Suzanne, Joaquin Phoenix is dead-eyed yet touchingly vulnerable -- a mush-mouthed angel.

Like Roseanne, Gus Van Sant refuses to compromise his trademark smarty-pants assault on storybook America.
February 12, 2008
If, like me, you find things to admire in all of Gus Van Sant's early films, you may be especially gratified by what he's done with a satirical anti-TV script by Buck Henry.

A smart and wicked delight

It's highly recommended.

A mean-spirited satire, told in mock-tabloid style, this film features the best performance of Nicole Kidman to date (better than The Hours for which she won an Oscar), as an amoral small-town girl obsessed with becoming a TV star.
May 26, 2006
Gus Van Sant directed this sharp black comedy about the obsession with television and celebrity culture.
March 11, 2006
Wicked, Wonderful and Wonderously performed
February 9, 2006
If you've hitherto failed to respond to the laid-back oddball appeal of Van Sant's movies, fear not: this is a sharp, consistently funny blend of black comedy and satire on the deleterious effects of television.
November 10, 2005
Exquisite media satire, as good as "Network" in its way.
