The magnificence of Bauby's accomplishment as an author is reflected, shimmering strangely, by a film that awakens a trapped life with the kind of poetry only the camera can write.

White Mane (1952)
The black-and-white shots are beautiful . . . then there is the closing shot, a fantastic melding of escape and loss.

A cinematic landmark . . . Lamorisse's film floats off, with the breeze of magic-realism, into a feeling of escape and peace.

Milarepa (2007)
By-the-book mythmaking: stately, straightforward and not too interesting. The story . . . falls flat on film, a moody, visual medium, tremendously difficult to rework into a mirror for introspective, spiritual transformation.

Startlingly de-mythologizing at first, then just plain poignant . . . it's fascinating to reconcile Cobain's slacker howl over chipping guitar chords with a sodden Pacific Northwest of logging trucks and fishing boats.

The energy is electric, the camerawork crisp and colourful, the editing note-perfect. . . . for the Roma, music sounds the notes of a harsh, maligned cultural history, making them all the more unforgettable while demanding remembrance, even awe.

Drips with a thick, Stygian darkness, but also offers violence that's too explicit and willfully perverse to be thoughtfully disturbing. . . . a little too overwrought, too operatic after its regal predecessor.

Some real genius and understated power . . . transcends its genre and turns the venally criminal into the profoundly human.

Suffers from dramatic black holes, but also from creaky dialogue and overly intense camerawork.

Confuses charm with childishness and romance with the sort of endless yearning in a badly written teen diary. Then there's the misogyny . . . and after the film's family values syrup is tapped out, its WASPy judgmentalism remains.

Crime Novel (2005)
It's hard to get much juice when it's all quick slice-and-dice in the first half-hour. . . . the moral slipperiness between criminal and politician, thug and cop, just doesn't ooze out here beyond all the blood.

Red Road (2007)
A strange sort of map of the city [is] spread across these fragmented cubes of visual information. And there's also the metaphorical map of the characters' lives, where they're coming from and where they're going.
