  • Anna Karenina

    Anna Karenina

    ★★★½

    "My dear Korsunsky, you know very well I never dance unless I can help it."

    Deeply moving, passionately romantic, and very well-acted, this version of Anna Karenina feels a bit rushed at times, but its modest length still feels quite digestible as it embraces the complex narratives of the classic novel, compressing them but never simplifying them.

  • Pride & Prejudice

    Pride & Prejudice

    ★★★★½

    "I love you. Most ardently."

    A beautifully shot and powerfully acted adaptation, this version of Pride & Prejudice gets its immense emotional weight from a divine performance by Keira Knightley and excellent directorial work from Joe Wright.

    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    Andrei Tarkovsky's masterpiece is a bitter contemplation on themes such as want vs. desire and misery vs. hope, and is told with the director's poetic sense of style and breathtaking imagery.

    "There are moments in our lives that seem to define us."

    It is difficult to overstate just how sappy, syrupy, schmaltzy, forced, and frustrating this melodramatic--and often unintentionally creepy--teen romance is. Props given to some of the supporting cast for attempting the best with what they're given, but the rest is trite nonsense.
