The Man Who Cried
While we may like what we see, it's impossible to comprehend what much of it means or why we should care.
A decent popcorn movie.
Bringing Out the Dead
Bringing Out the Dead not only shows us how difficult it is to get there, it lets us bask, finally, in the achievement.
Man on the Moon
Amadeus with a twist.
There are piecemeal wonders in Primary Colors, but not the grand and resonant vision the film should have been.
As Good As It Gets
A lovely act of cinematic evolution from confusion to enlightenment.
Year of the Horse: Neil Young & Crazy Horse Live
Both a quirky little movie and a monument to one of rock 'n' roll's greatest noisemakers.
The lure of Sling Blade is both elemental and hauntingly familiar, and I would not be surprised if Thornton's breakthrough film is one day considered a classic in its own right.
The Doom Generation
You sense that there is so much more at stake here than meets the eye, an extraordinary anger about and fear of 90s purposelessness and predatory intolerance.
Swimming with Sharks
When it comes time to take this drama to another level, addressing the darker and more pertinent issue of why Guy puts up with it and what he wants out of life, Huang is right there.
