    The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness

    ★★★★

    Behind a career filled with masterpieces, the great Miyazaki is no less beautiful and thoughtful and as a testament to his character, not only grants the documentarian access to the Ghibli office but to his humble quest to capture the spirit of life within the Himalayan task of hand-drawn filmmaking.

  • Wet Hot American Summer

    Wet Hot American Summer

    ★★

    Eschewing an improvisational approach in service of its witless script, Wet Hot makes it hard for the talent to breathe

    Alien Resurrection

    ★★½

    As twisted and dysfunctional as one of Ripley's failed clones, with irreverent caricatures and senseless pandemonium where the gritty realism and Hitchcockian suspense should be.

  • Lawrence of Arabia

    Lawrence of Arabia

    ★★★★★

    As sprawling as the Nefud Desert that Lawrence must cross to write his destiny, the 1st Part alone would've been a perfect film of personal triumph - Lawrence's exceptional feat of leadership framed by his ironic rise through the British army, from whom he strives to protect the local culture.
    However the film continues on as inexhaustibly as the protagonist, striving for a higher theme, but one which confronts both Lawrence's and our own heroic ideals. For while he is able to achieve unthinkable feats through willpower alone, he is doomed to try and cross the immutable force of imperial history.
