    ★★★★

    Like a meta pop-art 8 1/2 with extra opera, paint, cake and fucking. Mad even by Sion Sono's mad standards.

    The Anderson Tapes

    ★★★½

    Lumet's heist thriller is not Dog Day Afternoon, but it's really quirky and kinda cool. Sean Connery growls a lot, Christopher Walken and his amazing hair make their movie debut.

    ★★★★★

    One of my all-time favourite movies - cult movie perfection. The dialogue, the characters, the performances and the whacked-out mix of punk rock teen alienation and sci-fi conspiracy hijinks make for a brilliantly original one-off. And the new blu-ray looks GREAT!

    ★★

    Not awful, just ordinary... those in-jokes and meta-references that once seemed so clever and fresh now just feel tired, and it's way too drawn-out and repetitive. Still, Craven delivers a few suspenseful sequences and the 'teen' cast provide some youthful energy even if the old-timers (Campbell, Cox, Arquette) clearly just turned up for the pay cheque.
