It all works well in a complex, riveting, and disturbing way. The film suffers only in pacing; it seems longer than it is.

Bizarre, yet typical Coen comedy. Very dark and cartoonish.

A-
Bobby (2006)
A document to the idealistic spirit of RFK's times. Estevez, in a trifecta as director-screenwriter-star, brilliantly succeeds in all aspects.

Time Bandits (1981)
Over praised but imaginative sci-fi/fantasy from Monty Python minds.

Grand Warner Brothers 1950s Doris Day musical, rich with period music.

A definite see for Bonders like myself who can accept the hard-hitting Craig, Daniel Craig.

Modern Times (1936)
Certainly one of Chaplin's greatest...a true comedy classic.

Worth it for pairing of Garbo and Gilbert alone.

Babel (2006)
Except for the rather contrived Tokyo link, 'Babel' is as good as 'Crash.' It is definitely worth seeing, but take a deep breath first.

Later Bob Hope vehicle suffers due to "hip" script about swinging bachelor.

The challenge of Kirsten Dunst is to portray Marie as she matures from giggly teen to frustrated wife to loving mother and queen. Dunst succeeds in a stunning performance.

Top notch Kipling tale with Huston at helm supported by great Connery and Caine performances.

Al Capone (1959)
Steiger chews scenery...and bullets...in this B-grade action programmer.

A brilliantly layered story about war's heroes and the publicity machine surrounding them...a numbing, somber movie.

The Departed (2006)
Solid work by DiCaprio, Damon, Sheen and Baldwin...(is) upstaged by Nicholson bravado. Wahlberg, however, comes close.

3/5
A bold Abbott & Costello venture, featuring the team in separate roles entirely, which was very inventive for its time.

Creaky, sure, but this is historical Tarzaniana with Elmo Lincoln as the screen's first (silent) vine swinger.

Open Season (2006)
Disney never showed, say, Goofy actually defecating on camera, but 'Open Season' does just that with Eliott. And an entire scene is built around Boog's having a b.m.

Borderline (1980)
Later Bronson entry is formula hewn violence.

As for Stark's hellfire and brimstone speeches to the masses, Sean Penn's forced delivery and mock Southern dialect simply do not sell. Is Penn miscast? Yes.

The meaty beef of the story covers the lasting effect of TV's 'Superman,' particularly for the Baby Boomer target audience, and George Reeves' far too early death.

Coming near the close of a summer full of movie superheroes and remakes, 'The Illusionist' is a film buff's treat. Here is an atmospheric, period tale of magic and murder.

The Bellboy (1960)
For my meager money, Jerry Lewis' best & one of funniest all-time comedies.
