The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Diving Bell feels like another world and visually, it looks like no other film.

Mr. Bean's Holiday (Les Vacances de Mr. Bean)

Back with even less to say than before, Bean lurches toward his much-anticipated beach vacation with all the refinement of a train wreck.

Reviews

Mr. Beans Holiday

Physical comedy is officially dead, and Rowan Atkinson killed it.

Bill Gibron

Monkey Business (Part 4: August)

In past years, Hollywood purposely counter programmed these renowned Cineplex dog days, trying to offset the perception that cinematic scraps were all the studios had to offer. From the look of this lame list, it's apparently back to the filmic fridge for some patently warmed over offerings.

Reviews

The Science of Sleep (La Science des rêves) (2006)

This film revels in blurriness; not just in the line between director and fictional character, but between people, languages, and of course, between sleeping and waking, between living and dreaming.

Film

The Science of Sleep (La Science des rêves) (2006)

Written and directed by the ever inventive Michel Gondry, The Science of Sleep is a gorgeous, weird, mesmeric movie, with adorable animated reveries to represent Stéphane's subjective state.
