    I can't recall the last time I've disliked a movie quite so intensely. I was tempted to walk out during the nose-breaking scene and now regret I didn't follow that impulse. I might've been able to...

    A Passion is one of Bergman's two or three best films.

    Le Bonheur is one of Varda's very best. L'une chante, l'autre pas is good but not great.
  6. I haven't seen the film in a few years so I can't...

    I haven't seen the film in a few years so I can't be very specific, but my memory isn't that the characters argue on and off. Rather, when Peter Falk turns up with his buddies and expects Gena...

    Personally I don't find any of the scenes in that movie tedious to sit through. The length of a scene in minutes and seconds has no bearing on whether it's tedious or not. The difference between the...

    The great thing about Cassavetes' films is that they require the spectator to suspend judgement of his characters, who are continually (re)inventing themselves on a moment-by-moment basis. Is Mabel...

    I haven't seen Closely Watched Trains, although I didn't much care for the two Menzel films I've seen so far (Larks on a String and I Served the King of England), and The Cremator is bad. I'd...

    It's a failure (only the first story works), but even Anderson's failures are more interesting, and more stylistically inventive, than most directors' successes. Part of the problem here is a certain...

    This sounds like a case of having the wrong expectations for a film. I don't think this was intended as a riotous comedy, or a subversive political statement, but is an essentially realistic film...

    From what I hear, it's pretty much impossible to make a living as a filmmaker in Canada, which is why most Canadian filmmakers have day jobs (Greyson heads the film department at York University) or...

    My favourites are still Maelström and Un 32 août sur terre (i.e., the early, funny ones), perhaps in part because I saw them first, back in my teenage years. (I haven't seen Maelström in more than...

    Loves of a Blonde is pretty great, albeit depressing. The Cranes Are Flying is more exciting for its expressive style than its story, which I can barely remember. I haven't seen Double Suicide but...

    The main douche story that I'm aware of is him recutting American History X to give himself more screen time after the studio took the film away from the director.

    That's not saying a hell of a lot. Given the choice, I would probably re-watch Black Hawk Down (despite its monotony) or even Matchstick Men before The Counsellor, which is at best an interesting...

    My Darling Clementine is great. Red River has some great scenes but it's never been one of my favourite Hawks films. After three viewings, Heaven's Gate is a film I find easier to admire than to...

    I loved Remains of a Day when I was a teenager but then I've never read the book. I was bored by both A Room with a View and Howards End, probably in large part because I read the books before seeing...
