Pan's Labyrinth last night. I was disappointed, since I wanted the fantasy element of the story to be fleshed out a little more, and I definitely wanted less focus on the civil war brutality. I...

OK, but Wild at Heart isn't really a bandwagon film. It's a wildly polarizing film is what it is. Sure it won the palme d'Or that year, but critics seemed to roundly pan this film, Ebert in the...

Wild at Heart.

Brief justification: Oh my goodness. I'm not a huge Lynch fan by any means (I deplored Mulholland Drive when I saw it in theaters), but this film just blew my mind. I love all of...

Just saw Spirit of the Beehive and it was phenomenal. At times, it seemed like a Tarkovsky film to me, the pacing and the presentation. Of course, Erice was a contemporary of Tarkovsky. Ana...

Saw The Fountain and liked it quite a bit. All the critics' reviews are the same, and I guess I just feel like everyone needs to give this one a chance with an open mind. Aronofsky is not a...

Just saw The Big Lebowski, and very much enjoyed it, although it isnt' my favorite Coen Brothers having seen it. I really like how it encapsulates that '90s slacker mentality (though in an older...

I give a shit! My goodness, the guy had a unique way of handling characters and dialogue. He put the American stamp on the ensemble film. He is the sort of director that one references with his...

I haven't seen Hard Eight yet. Where does that rank for you guys with respect to Anderson's work? And yes, Spiwak, I think you're right to say that we don't have the full picture of Anderson yet. ...

I finally saw PT Anderson's "Boogie Nights," which I thought was a pretty decent movie. Doesn't have the raw emotional power of "Magnolia," but parts of it are fun. I particularly like Julianne...

Just saw Jean Vigo's L'Atalante. Lovely little film. It's funny how this film gets off as being one of the greatest films of all time, seeing as how it's definitely not aiming for any such...

I just saw Renoir's "The Rules of the Game." Everybit the masterpiece that critics say it is. Once the party that takes up most of the second half gets underway, it's a wild ride, and oddly enough,...

I really really wanted to like The Lady Eve when I saw it a couple weeks ago. I love classic Hollywood films! And I love Henry Fonda. But I just really didn't like it at all. It wasn't funny and...

All movies appeal to the senses, at least, I think, in the way that you are talking about. This is why movies are such a compelling art form, because they are visual and aural. And with the nature...

Spiwak, what is your favorite Cronenberg that features the genre of which you speak? I haven't seen a lot of Cronenberg, but I loved the Dead Zone (Christopher Walken is a dream).

It is certainly more than a run-of-the-mill action movie. This is not your cookie-cutter fill-in-the-blanks action hero sort of movie. It is Scorcese, which means that it is thoughtful and perhaps...
