Pre-2016 Film Reviews
The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez
- Excerpt: Edward James Olmos stars in this gritty, cross-cultural folk tale, new to the Criterion collection
Lady Street Fighter
- Excerpt: Lady Street Fighter is certainly an acquired taste. When the action is flowing, it’s a sleazy action romp. When the narrative kicks in, the film becomes a disjointed, befuddling affair, but there’s certainly enough weirdness help you along the way.
A Matter of Life and Death
- Excerpt: … a bleak, obliquely allegorical parable in which a Whale and a Prince bring a local apocalypse to a poor but peaceful Hungarian town. A political horror movie that creeps over you slowly, wrapping you in a fog of mysterious dread.
