Charlie’s Angels (2000)

The Jeffersons: The Complete Second Season

On occasion, The Jeffersons made some attempt to offer social commentary, but it was difficult for a show so laden with crude humor to suddenly get serious.


R.O.D. - Read or Die (2003)

The Paper literally stumbles into her battles, often times armed with little more than a postcard.


National Security (2003)

Endeavors to complicate the standard black-white buddy dynamic.


Medea (1987)

Passion drives Lars von Trier's Medea.

Dark Angel: The Complete First Season

Max was like, queen of the one-liners; what you wish you could think of, she would say.


The White Sheik (1952)

The fusion of the real and the imaginary is at the center of Fellini's first and one of his most underrated films, The White Sheik.


Nevada Smith (1966)

Walking away from violence, especially in a film set in the violent old West, delivers a powerful message.


My Life As a Dog (Mitt liv som hund) (1985)

The best tales about growing up incorporate the anxieties of childhood.


Led Zeppelin DVD (2003)

Seems to be another way that the band is thanking its fans.


Antwone Fisher (2002)

'I wasn't concerned with whether or not the audience liked Antwone at first.'"


Adaptation

Careens between fiction and confession, repetition and revelation.

Dawson’s Creek: The Complete First Season

Dawson Leery is not what you'd call a headlong rusher.


Psych-Out / The Trip (1967/1968)

In Haight-Ashbury, Jenny's only clue to her lost brother's whereabouts is a postcard that reads, 'God is alive and well in a sugar cube.'"


Lockdown (2000)

The trouble that accompanies them is not of their own making -- it's a function of being young, black, 'in the wrong place' by definition.


The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum (Die Verlorene Ehre der Katharina Blum) (1975)

Oddly, the film's attack on bourgeois morality is itself a form of bourgeois morality.


Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957)

It is, quite simply, the Hollywood Western in full flower, with all the nostalgia and sins of commission and omission that that implies.
