Pierrot le Fou (Pierrot Goes Wild) (Crazy Pete)
9 years ago via Movies on Facebook

A freewheeling allegory through the mind of Godard, just before his drift further into radical cinema. Serves as something from all his cinematic traits: romance, comedy, action-adventure, tragedy, politics, etc. A madcap rendition of an American pulp novel in true Godardian fashion; ranks among the director's most impressive and memorable features. Not only stunningly told, but beautifully visualized by the great Raoul Coutard, with colors more striking than anything ever tossed into a Lichtenstein painting.

My Winnipeg
My Winnipeg (2007)
9 years ago via Movies on Facebook

Beautifully evocative, laced with passion, humour and sorrow. Guy Maddin again displays his gift for combining elements of silent film with surrealism, this time turning his focus to his hometown of Winnipeg, drawing the grandeur of his surroundings in an almost infantile view: everything seems larger than life itself until one has the chance to grow a little older and can see each building, each "giant," is a tender and human element, famished only by the trials of society.

Australia (2008)
9 years ago via Movies on Facebook

Stirs up the classic idea of romanticism in a sprawling tale of love and history. Though sometimes treading a touch too closely to certain hackneyed techniques, staple of the romance film, the picture is ultimately forgiven by the universal theme it holds and how it crafts itself within its near three hour mark to grow a very touching film. Baz Luhrmann, now and then lacking an element as stroyteller, possesses a wonderful quality in the excellence of his wide shots, giving the film its distinctive cultural feel and evoking the true impact of the tale's many disasters.
