De Palma surprises us with his splendid decision of making a very delicate and emotionally resonant drama from King's novel (with a magnificent direction, even if not so well edited), leaving the horror only for the tragic climactic explosion of blood and fire in the end.

To Be or Not to Be
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It takes a brilliant filmmaker to find the perfect tone for something as insane as a slapstick satire involving Nazis at the height of World War II, and Lubitsch not only hits the mark with a fabulous cast (Jack Benny is priceless) but creates a film that is truly hilarious.

A bunch of disconnected ideas don't make a film, and so this bizarre movie feels more like an amalgam of unripe ideas thrown together without a clear purpose (much like Shivers before it), making me wonder why Cronenberg cast a porn movie actress as a grotesque sexual predator.

As hilarious and audacious as it is shockingly underrated, this feminist masterpiece should be the wet dream of any psychoanalyst worth their salt, since it uses a bizarre (but existing) folk tale to brilliantly expose the way our sexist culture has forever demonized female sexual pleasure.

Ninotchka

Somehow I'm taken aback by how quickly Garbo's character changes from one scene to the next (which is in fact coherent with the film's obvious anti-Sovietism and casual sexism), but her magnetic presence and the excellent dialogue make everything an enormous pleasure to watch.
