O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)

In Preston Sturges' Sullivan's Travels (1941), filmmaker John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) longs to make a serious movie. He's tired of making dumb comedies like Ants in Your Pants of 1939. He storms around his producer's office and whines, "I wanna make O Brother, Where Art Thou?" If we could transport John Sullivan (or indeed even Preston Sturges) from 1941 and sit them down to watch this new movie with the same title, I think he would be rather astonished. But for the rest of us, the Coen brothers have done it again. read more...

Adaptation (2002)

Back in 1963, Federico Fellini and Jean-Luc Godard changed cinema forever with their self-reflexive masterpieces 8 1/2 and Contempt, respectively. Both films turned cinema back in upon itself and explored the nature of making films, economically, creatively and spiritually. read more...

What Time Is It There? (2001)

Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-liang has taken his trademark style and refined it to a crystalline point with his newest film What Time Is It There? It's his purest and funniest film, though his 1997 film The River remains possibly his most accomplished. read more...

The Simpsons Movie (2007)

In an early episode of "The Simpsons," The Itchy and Scratchy Movie became a cultural event, opening to rave reviews, winning awards and earning a place in the cinematic canon and a spot in the hearts of movie lovers. (Lisa Simpson called it the greatest movie she'd ever seen.) As one of the two or three greatest television shows of all time, "The Simpsons" itself aspired to become a movie just as good. For years fans imagined what a Simpsons movie might be like -- as did hoards of screenwriters and producers -- and, inevitably, the cold hard reality is that The Simpsons Movie isn't the greatest movie of all time. read more...

The Big Lebowski (1998)

Joel and Ethan Coen had perhaps their biggest task ahead of them, to follow up Fargo, the most popular and critically acclaimed movie of their career, which topped critics' lists and earned them an Oscar. Fortunately, the Coens did what they do best. They ignored it all and just made another great Coen brothers movie. read more...
