Trapped (2002)

Scary as this sounds -- Courtney Love channeling Claire Standish or Andie Walsh -- it might explain a few things about what was going on in Trapped.


Snatch (2000)

Snatch is all about attitude and style. And guys, lots of guys.


Sweet Home Alabama (2002)

I won't tell you how it ends, but note the film's title is 'not' 'New York State of Mind.'"


Snipes (2001)

As Erik puts it, he has 'business to take care of.' That business is hip-hop.


Secretary (2002)

Secretary is about anxiety, depression, the inability to communicate.


Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death and Rebirth / The End of Evangelion (1997)

Multi-layered, ultraviolent, and profoundly disturbing, Evangelion depicts the end of the world as we know it and after seeing it, I most definitely do 'not' feel fine.


The Lady and the Duke (L’Anglaise et le duc) (2001)

Rohmer dehumanizes the mob, and encourages the audience to participate in the objectification. It's the aesthetic equivalent of the guillotine, chopping off spectator imagination.


The Long Goodbye (1973/2002)

Not just empty genre deconstruction, The Long Goodbye dares to ask some very basic questions about the hard-boiled detective hero.


Go Tigers! (2001)

Go Tigers! not only encourages the audience to cheer on its subjects, but also shows their vulnerabilities.


The Four Feathers (2002)

It's alarmingly short-sighted fiction, offering only occasional glimpses of the imperial project's fundamental viciousness and ignorance.


The Cockettes (2002)

A joyful, wild romp through the heyday of San Francisco's national cultural importance, filled with body glitter, feather boas, and important shoes.
