Peeping Tom (1960)

From a screenplay by Leo Marks, Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (1960) is a cornerstone in film history. There are many great movies, but only a few (Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Pulp Fiction) have served as a turning point, a marker that changed everything that followed. Peeping Tom was the first movie to turn cinema back in upon itself and play with the theme of voyeurism. read more...

Sling Blade (1996)

We see Karl Childers staring out the window, his lower lip poked out so that his upper lip can rest on it. His eyes show that he is not in the room, not mentally, but more than that, we can't say. Soon, he will be interviewed by a young girl for her school paper. At that point, Karl, played by Billy Bob Thornton, will give a long speech explaining what he did and why he did it, but more than that; the manner of his speech will tell us who he is. His voice is a low, rumbling drawl. By the end of the speech, we have decided we like Karl, and the more the movie goes on, the more we like him. Eventually, his strange voice becomes like music (the wonderful dialogue -- and an Oscar-winning screenplay -- helps). read more...

Black Sunday (1960)

Apparently based on a story by Nikolai Gogol, Black Sunday (a.k.a. The Mask of Satan) was Mario Bava's first film as director and a huge hit for distributor American International Pictures, though this version is actually Bava's preferred cut. read more...

Splice (2010)

This movie is messed up, but in the most wonderful ways. Directed and co-written by Vincenzo Natali (Cube), Splice moves through familiar territory, including films like Frankenstein, E.T., and Jurassic Park, but it touches on some seriously complex and twisted ideas, such as the meaning of family and the concept of creation. Nevertheless, it has a perfectly confident and nonchalant tone as it navigates these sticky issues; it's even ever so slightly comical. (Or perhaps the laughter is just a reaction to the movie's uncomfortable suggestions.) read more...

This bizarre work is one of Martin Scorsese's greatest and most underrated films. Robert DeNiro plays Rupert Pupkin, a wannabe comedian obsessed with talk show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). He tries to go through proper channels to get on the show but when he fails, he and another fanatic (Sandra Bernhard) kidnap Langford in order to arrange a "guest" appearance on his show. read more...
