    Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets

    Kyle: I enjoyed the parts with the young man breaking the fourth wall and his frustration with the contemporary Japan of 1971. But it veers too far into abstraction for me to embrace the narrative. Plus the subjugation of women and animals is hard to stomach. [Rating: 2 out of 5.]

    Dave: I hated this. Random colours. Random camera shakes. When it slows down to actually try and be a movie it looks great. But that's only a few minutes…

    Bringing Out the Dead

    Kyle: Similar to After Hours in energy. I liked how the movie slowly spirals out of control as more trauma is layered onto our main character. I think it's solid.

    Dave: It's just ok. I didn't really like this all that much. Maybe I'm biased because I really hate Nic Cage and his whole ... thing. But all the other stuff is great. Being a paramedic must suck.

  • City Lights

    City Lights

    Kyle: A wonderful film that shows why Charlie Chaplin is considered a master. But, understandably, you can kind of see the seams in this 90 year old movie.

    Dave: I really liked this too. It's grand in scope, it's funny, and it's moving. But nobody, outside of film students and movie nerds, is going to sit down and watch this.

    Spirited Away

    Kyle: Just a gorgeous work of art. I want to stay in this world with all its bizarre, yet wonderful, characters. At the end I'm just happy to have been part of the journey.

    Dave: I love the ducks. And I love this movie. It's beautiful and shows how people's vices can be overcome.
