  • Embrace of the Serpent

    Embrace of the Serpent


    Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now with a dash of 2001: A space odyssey makes Embrace of the Serpent, a uniquely beautiful masterpiece.

  • Little Children

    Little Children


    Another venture into the murky depths of suburban American. Little Children is part of a family of films, American Beauty and Blue Velvet being part of this family. Todd Field (Nick Nightingale from Eyes Wide Shut - MIND BLOWN) directs what is only his second feature with such meticulous patience that it could be mistaken for his tenth. Field superbly draws the line between humor and drama, sidestepping between the two with ease and grace. The characters are all a fraction or two off of normality, each inhabits a personality that seems stretched and intensified towards their less obvious qualities; both positive and negative.

    Batman: The Killing Joke


    The Joke fell flat.

    This simply did not work as an animation. The sting of Moore's panels was gone. Maybe some things are best left to their own medium.

    It's Such a Beautiful Day


    I think we all know Bill and have in our most quiet and intimate moments been him. This is a beautiful thing.
