An early independent film about a “born loser” woman who “doesn’t know why she exists.” So that’s fun.
A very accurate, well-made docudrama about an actual space emergency, it all feels a bit airless to me (sorry).
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.
A very well-made, enjoyable western with John Wayne as a stoic small-town sheriff and Dean Martin as his alcoholic deputy.
A very low-budget 1980s film with concerns far more esoteric than your average movie, which wouldn’t be rediscovered until decades later.
A big romantic melodrama among army guys and ladies on Hawaii, with the impending doom of Pearl Harbor hanging over everything.
A rediscovered silent classic featuring an iconic central performance by Louise Brooks as its doomed heroine
Stanley Kubrick’s period epic tells the life story of a 1700s rogue with spectacular visuals and a maximum of emotional detachment.
A unique film about the Gullah culture on the coast of South Carolina, with a beautiful visual sense and an insistence on discursive storytelling.
Maybe the first great heist movie, for me it still works just as well today as it did 70 years ago.
