EastEnders

For the conflicted soap fan longing for a simulacrum of realism, EastEnders is an addictive slice of heaven.


The Anna Nicole Show

The Anna Nicole Show asks us to laugh at, not with, its pitiable subject.

Deerhoof: Reveille

Deerhoof are scary. What they have done on their latest release, Reveille, is reimagine the “Dies Irae” as populated by little furry things.

Songs From the Second Floor (Sånger från andra våningen) (2002)

Songs From the Second Floor may be blasphemous in its relentless tweaking of Christianity, but it is never less than sincere about its search for divine intercession.


Read My Lips (Sur Mes Lèvres) (2001)

Carla and Paul form an odd couple, slouching towards romance while successfully defending (and defining) their common interests against powerful and dangerous people.


Possession (2002)

While the plot of Possession concerns yearning and fervor, its tone is provocatively detached.


The Kid Stays in the Picture (2002) - PopMatters Film Review )

What Robert Evans does, mostly, is him.


Happy Times (Xingfu Shiguang) (2000)

Explores the many costs of 'modern times'.


Blue Crush (2002)

Big fat super-popular boy power movies don't rely on plot, so it probably makes sense that this pulse-pounding girl power movie doesn't either (and like most boy movies, this one is about a stunningly beautiful white protagonist surrounded by a multi-culti crew).
