Before The Devil Knows You're Dead - Only thing I know about this movie is that it starts with about five minutes of Philip Seymour Hoffman giving it to Marisa Tomei from behind. Rrrrrrawwwwkk!!!!
The Bird With The Crystal Plumage - Dario Argento's debut? I remember it--it's elegant enough, more elegant and less gaudy and nonsensical than his later movies. Not necessarily that much better though--Deep Red is still his high point.
The Black Cauldron - I should watch this myself, Disney's flop (PG-13--gaaaasp!) that led to them firing a bunch of people and getting the new people who made them successful again.
The Blob - The 80s one? It blows.
Blow Out - The quintessential De Palma, I hugely recommend.
Blue Ruin - Interesting enough revenge thriller starring a sad bearded guy as the vengeful one!! Watch!
Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia - Only watched once, but it was good! Hey it needs a rewatch.
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof - Tennessee Williams strikes me as overblown melodramatic stuff nowadays but HOT DAMN was Liz Taylor fine!!!
Days Of Heaven - Second or third best Malick, Badlands remains numero uno. This is probably his definitive movie though, what with the voice over and all (used more Malicky than Badlands.)
Dogville - Never made up my mind on whether or not this was genius douchebaggery or boring douchebaggery but either way, it is meant to be douchey and provocative. Which is sort of cool, and that set was also cool, but the movie's three freakin hours long to get the point of "this girl's the new Christ. We're not getting saved."
Doubt - Good enough, mostly for Streep.
Enemy - A Lynchian experiment from Denis Villeneuve. Worth watching once, but good luck decoding it. I liked the ugly yellow atmosphere and the shot of the spider walking thru the city!!
A Face In The Crowd - Andy Griffith was pretty entertaining in this, although you kind of know from the start where the movie's going. A media/stardom satire, you know the score. Griffith as the next Brando/Newman type made for some interest though, he probably never played anything like this ever again.
Fanny & Alexander - I watched the five hour version. I remember this as being really good but have never rewatched any Bergman for, uh, some reason.
Fatso - What the hell is this? I gotta see it...
Four Flies On Grey Velvet - Another early Argento, this one wasn't so great. Eghn. Wavy hand. Never revisited it (watched on Youtube, anyway.)
Freaked - Maybe I should watch this too, because I've seen about ten trillion references to it over the years.
Goldfinger - Watch it!!! Even if you don't like Bond, it's great! 5 stars!!
I Love You Daddy - Didn't see it, but Louis CK getting called out by #MeToo (the only one of the supposed offenders I really cared for BTW) led to this getting one of the nastier Ebert-site reviews and a huge fight in the comments section.
In Cold Blood - Not bad, but the book, fabrications and all, is still better and always will be.
Inland Empire - Don't try to make sense of this and you may enjoy the three hours of sheer darkness. I've never gone back to it but since I didn't try to "understand" it, I enjoyed it more than I would have.
Killer Joe - Acceptable enough redneck schlock from William Friedkin. The chicken-leg bit really offended some people. It didn't really get to me.
Killer Of Sheep - Depressing realism. Probably worth seeing once but it's pretty dreary to me and I never rewatched it.
The King of Kong - It's really good. But just because, it parades a very very pathetic (but very happy) subculture of super pathetic nerds in front of your face thereby making you feel better about yourself. Nick Broomfield's Kurt & Courtney works on the same principle.
The Lair Of The White Worm - I should probably see this schlockfest myself, I have seen some of the sicker parts.
The Last Temptation Of Christ - Probably needs a rewatch but I never liked it. The way the actors read their dialogue is so, SO hammy. The controversy can go eff itself--I was never offended by it.
Martin - It's good!! Romero's most interesting "message" movie. Go see it!!
More to come, brraaahhh!!!!
