Ang Lee 2009

Demetri Martin and an excellent supporting cast do a good turn in this family drama set upstate New York during the eventful summer of ’69.  Ang Lee brings a little something more to everything.

Werner Herzog 2005

I mentioned at a dinner party that I thought this was a funny movie and everyone looked at me like I had just skinned a puppy. So I watched it again.  It definitely is funny but in fairness I’m not sure funny is the best way to describe it. “Incredible” probably does it better justice.  It’s just that Herzog has such a good sense of humor.

Niels Arden Oplev 2009

First half was boring – probably trying too hard to be true to the book – but it picked up in the second half when it also became a buddy film.

Stephen Hopkins 2004

Filmic flourishes abound as Geoffery Rush identifies with Peter Sellers identifying with Chance the Gardener from Jerzy Kosinski’s book, BEING THERE.

Robert Altman 2003

If a ballet company was a ball you could pick up, take a closer look at, play with, and then put down, the ball would be this movie.  The dance performances themselves are spectacular.

Jody Hill 2009

Some people swear by this movie but I didn’t feel it. Except for Anna Faris – she delivers one of the best lines of the decade.

Gaspar Noe 2009

The Tibetan Book of the Dead, on screen, via DMT. The descent down the staircase early in the film hooked me, and even if the film and its roving eye dragged on at times, it keeps its own rhythm and delivers a unique experience.
