Big Fish (2003)

Edward's persistent self-inflation frustrates Will, just as its contradictions appeal to Burton.

Barney Miller: The First Season

Barney Miller offered a unique blend of comedy and social commentary by making the detectives just as quirky as the colorful criminals coming through the squad room.


The Pornographers (1966)

The Pornographers works on the margins of social norms and 'abhorrence,' officially accepted commerce and illicit trade.


A League of Their Own (1992)

A League of Their Own is an engagingly old fashioned and family-friendly comedy.


The Gods Must be Crazy I & II (1980/1988)

The documentary Journey to Nyae Nyae considers the films' consumption in the West, as they made N!xau a star and raised anthropological interest in the Bushmen.

Tokyo Godfathers (2003)

Laced with screwball comedy and high-speed action, the film encompasses more complex themes than the usual sugarcoated 'spirit of Christmas'.


The Greatest Show on Earth (1952)

The circus crew is depicted as a cross between Santa's Workshop and the U.S. Army; they are impossibly virtuous, toiling endlessly for the delight of children.

What’s Happening!! - The Complete First Season

It's the kind of show that one catches in reruns, without need of directors' commentaries and loving digital transfers.


Secret Agent A.K.A. Danger Man Megaset

Patrick McGoohan's Drake is an intensely moral character, but never sanctimonious, a diehard cynic who nonetheless believes in what he does.


Just One of the Guys (1985)

Just One of the Guys is worth repeated viewing, especially for Hyser's hilarious and charismatic performance.


Hustle and Heat (2003)

Lisa's got what Rad calls 'more firepower than Waco,' in her garage.


Dirty Pretty Things (2002)

The title refers to many 'things,' most simultaneously dirty and pretty.
