Epidemic. Far and away Von Trier's least entertaining film. Particularly disappointing because the concept is fairly good. The Sweet Hereafter. Very near to cinematic perfection. One of the most harrowing and affecting films I've ever seen. Jan Svankmajer's Alice. Not too good. It's visually cool, but overall a boring retelling of a classic. Mifune. Excellent. Charming, weird, and hilarious. The scene where the movie's title came from, a reference to Toshiro Mifune, is one of the zaniest and most awesome scenes that comes to mind. The Door in the Floor. Uneven screenwriting, decent direction, and great acting. A mediocre movie. Medea. An interesting homage to Dreyer by Von Trier that stays pretty true to Dreyer's style. It's a good flick, but I could see it getting tiresome if it had been any longer. McCabe & Mrs. Miller. My introduction to Altman. I really liked it, mostly for its subtly charming bits. It managed to be simultaneously gentle and captivating until the end when it actually got pretty tense. Metallica: Some Kind of Monster. I loved the movie and found it hilarious, but it baffles me how so many film critics are calling it a serious look at human emotion, among other things. It's just a bunch of has-been sissies trying to be deep and failing miserably. The Phantom of Liberty. Probably the most enjoyable of the Buñuel films I've seen. Some of it is utterly hysterical and the rest of it is at least absurdly charming enough to have kept a smile on my face.
