Kiss Me Kate

Culminates with 'Brush Up Your Shakespeare,' a musical tribute to the Bard sung by the two thugs, looking comically uncomfortable in their 16th garb.


Warm Water Under a Red Bridge (2002)

Beyond their sexual pyrotechnics, Saeko and Yosuke's relationship develops a particular symbiosis.


Solaris (2002)

'The one thing you'll see as you watch the film, what you'll take note of, is how still it is.'"


Spider (2002)

It's creepy inside Spider's head.


Daredevil (2003)

Daredevil has good reasons for his gear, and for the screwed-up attitude that goes with.


Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River (1968)

It's like spending 99 minutes in a room a person you don't like in the least.


Beautiful Thing (1996)

A sweet, subtle slice-of-life drama about the sexual awakening of two gay teenagers whose home lives are less than perfect.

Tsui Hark’s Vampire Hunters (2003)

The Vampire King looks like someone tossed a banana cream pie in his face and left it there.


Spun (2002)

Screenwriter William De Los Santos calls Spun a 'love story'.


The Mouse That Roared (1959)

The Mouse That Roared is that rare nuclear holocaust flick you can watch with the kids.


Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959)

In Hiroshima Mon Amour, Resnais and his screenwriter, French novelist Marguerite Duras, show their debts to the Modernists.


The Collected Shorts of Jan Svankmajer, Volumes One and Two - PopMatters Film Review )

Jan Svankmajer's films, surreal transformations of everyday objects into living creatures, are intensely visceral.


The Carpetbaggers (1964)

More troubling than the melodramatic disintegration of Jonas' personal life is The Carpetbaggers' depiction of Hollywood's exploitation of female sexuality.

The Tenant (1976)

'I think I'm pregnant,' Roman Polanski coos beguilingly to the mirror in his 1976 film, The Tenant.


Phone Booth (2002)

We're surrounded by spin all the time and I think that many times people who spin for a living really don't know the truth anymore because, I guess, they have to believe so much in the spin that they are spinning.


The Hours (2002)

'What I learned seeing the movie is that yes, you do lose that ability to go into people's minds, but you gain Meryl Streep's ability to separate an egg, in a way that tells you everything you need to know about who that person is at that point.'"


Das Experiment (2001)

Forget about Freddy and Dr. Lecter. Das Experiment is a truly terrifying film.
