The Heart of the World   6/22/22
by Thief
Writer and director Guy Maddin set out to make a film that was as frenetic as possible, at roughly two shots per second, but also constructed in a style that is reminiscent of very early German and Russian silent films, like Metropolis.

Malice in Wonderland   6/09/22
by Thief
Malice in Wonderland is a short film directed by Vince Collins *loosely* inspired on Carroll's novel.

Antes que cante el gallo   6/09/22
by Thief
This, paired with a pretty good production design results in a film that feels real, as opposed to other local films that feel and look like a "fake" Puerto Rico.

Inside Llewyn Davis   6/08/22
by Thief
Like every Coen film, their mastery of dialogue and tone is superb.

Rodents   6/07/22
by Thief
This Ecuadorian film from 1999 follows a similar template to many American crime films of the era, with fast-paced direction and editing and morally ambiguous characters, but does it in a way that feels fresh enough and very much of its place.

Five Easy Pieces   6/06/22
by Thief
The title of the film comes from a book of piano lessons that includes "five easy pieces" for beginners.

The Mother   6/03/22

A film about mothers

Where You Are   6/03/22

A film about mothers

Winchester '73   6/02/22
by Thief
Duryea, in particular, gives a really good performance, but I really enjoyed John McIntire as sly gun trader Joe Lamont, who proves to be a worthy rival to Brown early on the film, all in his effort to win the gun.

It Happened One Night   5/31/22
by Thief
Despite what can be seen as a "flimsy" story, the film also manages to fulfill its expectations by delivering a variety of memorable sequences and "bits"; the hitchhiking scene, the "Shapeley" pick-up guy, the singing "bag thief", the whole "walls of Jericho" thing.
