    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

    A friend of mine called E.T. a 'movie of the week.' And it is. But every aspect of the film, the performances, the effects, the set designs, and especially the lighting, is executed at so high a level that it elevates the B-movie story to A level status.

    Spielberg's best lit, color, film?

  • Princess Mononoke

    Princess Mononoke

    When I watched this film in the theatre in 1999, it was my first introduction to Miyazaki. Since then, I've devoured everything I can both by him, and about him since.

    And though I've now been aware of and devoted to Miyazaki's work for over 20 years now, he still somehow feels like a recent discovery.

    I don't know if it Princess Mononoke is Miyazaki's best film, or if it holds a special place in my heart because it was my first exposure to his work, but it is perhaps his most complex work. Every character is so...human. Even the giant animal gods.
