Brazil (1985)

Terry Gilliam's masterful Brazil was one of the best films of the 1980s. Jonathan Pryce stars as a weasly clerk who dreams of flying with a beautiful blonde woman (Kim Greist). But in real life, he trudges through a strange, yet familiar, universe full of ineffectual machines and loads of paperwork. As Pauline Kael pointed out in her review, the film uses vertical lines more than horizontal, trapping its characters in steely cages. Robert De Niro steals a few scenes as Harry Tuttle, a renegade repairman who glides through the air on slender cables, stealing into people's apartments at night to fix malfunctioning air-conditioning units. And Michael Palin appears to lend the film some Monty Python-esque absurdity. read more...

Adaptation (2002)

Since then, many younger filmmakers have not been able to resist the urge to follow in those grand footsteps. Hence we have silly little nuggets ranging from The Big Picture to Bowfinger to State and Main to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back to this year's Simone. Most of these movies serve only to satirize Hollywood thinking and to make fun of egotistical producers and directors. read more...

Cheatin' (2015)

Bill Plympton (The Tune, I Married a Strange Person, Hair High, etc.) is certainly one of the greatest animated cartoon makers in the world today, taking full advantage of the liquidity of the medium, with his twitchy pencil sketches and watercolors bending and twisting and morphing into just about anything. Cheatin' — his sixth feature film, not counting his shorts compilation Mondo Plympton — is perhaps his most ambitious and visually impressive work yet, even if its story and themes are a little more down-to-earth than we might expect from this strange visionary. read more...
