Taxi Driver   7/10/10
by The Prestige
He isn't quite KKK calibre, but there is a sense of him looking for an easy scapegoat and Scorsese films these scenes with uncomfortable close up shots of DeNiro's angry face looking down on the ethnic minorities.

A History of Violence   6/27/10
by The Prestige
BUT THEN..I did what I often do with most films I watch..I watched it again, and I have to say that never before have I done a bigger U Turn on a film than I did with Violence.

Ali: Fear Eats the Soul   6/23/10
by The Prestige
Fassbinder himself pops up in the film as Emmi's very racist son in law.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford   4/18/09
by The Prestige
Dominik spent 2 years of his life getting the film made the way he wanted it to and all that tenacity paid off because in the end we have an arthouse film, devoid of pretentiousness yet rich with authorship and a filmmakers pride.

by The Prestige
