    Great, thrilling suspense film that also has the best car chase sequence ever put on celluloid. DeNiro and Jean Reno at their best.

  • Southland Tales 2006

    Richard Kelly broke my heart with this film. Donnie Darko is excellent; a little rough around the edges, but (I liked to think) a hint of things to come for this director. Enter Southland Tales which is rambling, vague and lacking anything like an emotional hook for the audience.

    Sometimes Lynch's films are too mysterious and enigmatic even for me. Blue Velvet is amazing; Eraserhead just baffling. The Lost Highway had it in patches, but this film has it in spades. It's a stunning, triumph of a film that causes one, not only to reimagine what's possible in cinema, but to reappraise a director's entire oeuvre. What Mulholland Drive has done for me is give me proof that Lynch is a genius who doesn't always hit the mark.
