FANTASIA (1940)

Disney’s early foray into “high culture” is probably weirder to than you remember and also includes a satisfying amount of dinosaur-on-dinosaur violence.

PERSONA (1966)

Perhaps the most debated and dissected “art film” of all time, about a woman who refuses to talk and her nurse, stuck alone together in an island cottage, who seem to gradually merge into a single person. Or do they?

MY MAN GODFREY (1936)

One of the screwiest of all screwball comedies not only has plenty of jokes , but skewered the vacuity of the upper classes in a way that still resonates today.

THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES (1976)

As Clint Eastwood’s latest film is released in theaters and on streaming, we revisit another 45 year old Western in which he directed and starred.

JURASSIC PARK (1993)

Perhaps the best of the Steven Spielberg popcorn movies, with dinosaur effects that incredibly still hold up 28 years later.

APOLLO 13 (1995)

A very accurate, well-made docudrama about an actual space emergency, it all feels a bit airless to me (sorry).

MISHIMA: A LIFE IN FOUR CHAPTERS (1985)

The story of famous Japanese author who also had his own private army and tried to overthrow the government, as one does, told in such a highly stylized manner that I honestly lost track of it.

L’HOMME DEL RIO (1964)

In celebration of the late Jean-Paul Belmondo, we visit a big fun 1960s action-adventure, French-style.
