    Syndromes and a Century


    Divided in two sections, Syndromes and a Century could be seen as a contemplative tribute to Weerasethakul's parents, both physicians. Avoiding conventional narrative structures or plot, his camera captures mundane events with serene beauty, and as we watch these "actions" and encounters, the characters acquire humanity.
    Weerasethakul is truly one of the most interesting filmmakers of the 21st century

  • Collateral


    Michael Mann is one of my favorite living American directors. He is probably the greatest stylist in contemporary cinema, but his films are always more than just formal experiments.
    In Collateral he creates a nocturnal space that is both poetic and menacing, and even with its flawed third act, Mann's film is a near cinematic masterpiece.
