    City of Sadness would probably be a top ten film for me. I first saw it on 35mm at a cinémathèque screening in South Korea in 2009, where a surprisingly large audience turned up for it and people...

    I'll admit I'm pretty ignorant of how medical research is funded and operates, but what's the motivation for manufacturing a deadly virus? Where's the profit (financial and/or humanitarian) in that?

    I got the feeling that he was in on the joke. Ditto the guy who sells him a cage for his daughter.

    I've seen both Wonder Wheel and Crisis in Six Scenes, and while neither one is exactly good, they both have points of interest that arguably make them worth seeing, at least if you're a Woody Allen...

    Depp just lost a libel suit where the main issue of contention was whether it was accurate for the Sun to describe him as a wife-beater. Depp lost, which means that the British legal system has found...

    I would make the argument, as others have (notably Robin Wood), that the elevation of certain Hollywood directors to capital-A Auteur status, or perhaps more precisely, the insistence of certain...

    I haven't seen the movie in almost twenty years, but at the time, it struck me as one of the most pointless remakes I'd ever seen, almost a carbon copy of Abre los ojos. The most significant...

    Maybe you better tell us what a second camera could do here instead of us imagining it, since in contrast with the scene from Taxi Driver, there are quite a few cut-ins to closer views of the beating...

    The ASLs I cited provide evidence that cutting in Hollywood films has gotten faster since the end of the classical period, but in itself, this data point doesn't prove a whole lot. For one thing, the...
