    De Palma

    ★★★★½

    This is how documentaries on directors should be made from now on. Not try to get a zillion talking heads but just let the person speak for the entire runtime. Then again, you need the guarantee that they're as captivating as Brian De Palma, who, very much like his movies, is always provocative and honest, regardless of whether that works out in favor of them. The only flaw was that I could've listened for three hours to the man.

  • Yes Nurse! No Nurse!

    Yes Nurse! No Nurse!

    ★★★½

    It flounders a bit despite its relatively short running time, but the unadulterated joy of everyone involved and the excellent camp make up for a lot. The songs were classics even before the movie was released (due to it being a television show before this) so of course those are excellent, too. We need more Dutch musicals, stat.

    The Double Life of Veronique

    ★★★★½

    The technical prowess and fantastical lyricism drew me into this movie after five or ten minutes, and the romanticism of the rest of the film made it a masterpiece. This is my first Kieslowski, cannot wait to see more of his.

  • The Long Goodbye

    The Long Goodbye

    ★★★★

    Just fantastic. Everyone's great in it, even those who don't have lines like the cat or Arnold Schwarzenegger.
