The Little Shop of Horrors is a comedy which has a very limited appeal, and for me it was often too annoying than genuinely amusing. Some of its scenes worked quite well and it's charming in its own right, but it overall sounded too cheap and repetitive with weak acting as well.
Horrible to witness and absolutely tragic in equal measure, Amores perros leaves a lasting impact. Its graphic brutality was too shocking to me as a big dog lover, but still it ended up being a quintessential film about the plight of dogs that is technically terrific, superbly directed and extremely well crafted in terms of storytelling. It is so well interconnected in its triptych structure that it ended up being a very involving and rewarding cinematic experience. It is also filled with many instantly unforgettable sequences with my favorite segment being the last powerful chapter. It is undoubtedly the magnum opus of Inarritu's filmography.
Reese Witherspoon is terrific in Election, and Matthew Broderick is also pretty good. This movie is rich with colorful personalities, memorable subplots and hilarious dialogue too. The ephebophiliac subplot is not only uncomfortable, but unnecessary for the plot. But otherwise everything worked splendidly here - the humor is great, the characters are unforgettable and it succeeds as a particularly potent satire on elections in politics. Alexander Payne is a hit-or-miss director for me, but this surely belongs among his definite hits.
Following is clumsily edited and somewhat forced in its non-linear structure, but for the most part it's a great showcase of what can be achieved on a shoestring budget. The noirish atmosphere is superbly conveyed, the villain is excellent, the twist is fine and the movie is psychologically interesting and quite dark. In the editing department, Nolan struggled here, but he both wrote and directed this movie so well. It's one his best, most underrated films.
Thanks to fittingly stellar dialogue and Oscar's very accurate portrayal, Wilde is a successful biopic across the board that's surprisingly engaging throughout as the pacing is great. Both Stephen Fry and Jude Law were so well cast and both did a great job in their roles. The film is above all else very emotional as it's tragic how he was born in the wrong time.
