    The Illusionist

    Another outstanding Chomet movie. Beautiful illustrations, dialog-less storytelling, charming soundtrack, tack-sharp sound design, evocative plot line - this animation has it all. Highly recommended.

  • The Triplets of Belleville

    The Triplets of Belleville

    A truly unique illustrative style combined w/stellar sound design and a 'dialog-less' approach to storytelling make this film an absolutely incredible experience. Highly recommended.

  • The Band's Visit

    The Band's Visit

    The quiet storytelling and character development in this movie are outstanding. Music as the common 'language' between cultures creates a deeply moving experience. Additionally, the cinematography and art direction in this film are incredible.

    (PS - watch the bonus interviews w/the director and cast for further insight into the importance of this film)

    Stellar action movie w/an incredible cast. Striking, for me, is the way in which Mann knows exactly how to craft particular scenes using a balance between soundtrack, sound design, and silence. Excellent story-telling and suspense/tension throughout. Highly recommended.
