You, the Living (2008)

Swedish director Roy Andersson returns with the terrific new film, You, the Living. As far as I can tell, it's only the second Andersson film to turn up here (after 2001's Songs from the Second Floor), and he's probably not much of a household name yet, but deserves to be. He's like a cold soup mix of Buster Keaton, David Lynch, Jerry Lewis and Terry Gilliam, hawking deadpan jokes as well as chilly, disheartening mean streaks in his blocky, deep-space single takes. read more...

Barton Fink (1991)

Thanks to a friend that worked at a movie theater, I saw Barton Fink (1991) at midnight, before it opened to the public, and it was a perfect way to experience this weird, funny, would-be cult film, filled with its strange spaces and surreal dream logic. read more...

The Phantom of Liberty (1974)

The key scene in Luis Bunuel's The Phantom of Liberty is the one that takes place at a dinner party. Guests gather around the table, pull down their pants and sit on toilets. They talk, rifle through magazines andotherwise engage in casual conversation. One guest rises, politely excuses himself and shyly asks for the dining room. Once inside, he shuts the door and begins eating. read more...

Southland Tales (2007)

After a disastrous screening at Cannes (of an unfinished print), Richard Kelly's bruised and battered follow-up to his cult classic Donnie Darko (2001) sat shelved for over a year. It finally emerges this week into theaters. Southland Tales resembles nothing less than a vintage Godard, with a brainstorm full of ideas roiling and lurching and looking for purchase. read more...

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...
