Pre-2018 Film Reviews
Back to Burgundy
- Excerpt: The vineyard setting may be specific, and it may incidentally instill a new or grater admiration and respect for the winemaking process, but this is a more universal tale of families in a world where new opportunities vie with the comfort of the familiar.
Matt Brown @ Screen Anarchy (1996)
- Excerpt: Advice to Torontonians: Don’t watch ‘Crash’ during a pandemic in December
Goodbye, Dragon Inn
Lee Jutton @ Film Inquiry (2003)
- Excerpt: While watching Goodbye, Dragon Inn’s new 4K restoration on your laptop, instead of gazing up at it on a massive screen in the dark, surrounded by fellow film lovers, feels wrong, the act of doing so also reminds us exactly what we’re missing.
Puzzle of a Downfall Child
- Excerpt: Today, we can appreciate this film for what it is, rather than expecting it to be something else. But you don’t have to take my word for it—it’s also a favorite of Bruce LaBruce.
