The Darjeeling Limited

Patricia (Anjelica Huston) serves multiple purposes in The Darjeeling Limited, not least being the grail her children seek.

Marie Antoinette (2006)

Marie Antoinette's veneer is so impregnably varnished, so buffed to such an imposing sheen, that any attempt at critical ingress either bounces off of or slides down its glossy façade.

Marie Antoinette (2006)

Slackers (2002)

Some movies just don't need to be made. And some movies work extra hard to educe comments just like that one, making the extra effort to gross you out, to annoy, alarm, or titillate you.
