    Django Shoots First

    ★★★

    A departure from the Eastwood clones of the time, Django Shoots first explores a more complicated relationship between gunfighters, as well as less traditional motives than those seen in Spag Westerns of the time. A fun cast and great Bruno Nicolai score make this a must see.

  • Black Girl

    Black Girl

    ★★★★½

    The first sub-Saharan film to reach an international audience, Black Girl addresses racism and the legacy of colonialism in both Africa and Europe. For this film alone director Ousmane Sembene is one of the most important filmmakers of the 20th century, and his film shares that designation.

    Night of the Living Dead

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Dear 1968:

    We made a film that has the following:

    -Female protagonist.
    -Whoops! Now an African-American protagonist.
    -It is in black & white.
    -It's all in one night! All in one one house!
    -We wait forever to even kind of tell you what's going on
    -People eat other people! You even get to see it!
    -Women die!
    -Kids die!
    -Kids kill their folks!
    -Brothers kill sisters!
    -Wait, everyone dies!
    -Whatever was happening has no conclusion!

    Please enjoy our film,

    George A.…

  • WALL·E

    WALL·E

    ★★★★½

    I don't feel like going on about something right now, but I WILL say this:

    WALL*E is the best love story I can think of, going back to at least When Harry Met Sally, and one of the sweetest and most effective I've ever seen. How far you have fallen so quickly Pixar. After Up, it has been nothing but down. (ba-dum-bum)
