Twenty-fours after seeing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I was still thinking about it. I watched the movie over a decade ago and I still ponder its mysteries, much in the same way I considered Adaptation and Being John Malkovich. The common link with all three, of course, is screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, arguably the […]

Cast

Danny Huston

Children of Men (2006) Cuaron’s Children of Men is one of the few post-apocalyptic nightmares I can believe in. Its dystopian vision of a future world not so far away (its events are set in 2027) rings true from start to finish, and its unrelenting bleakness never reeks of hyperbolic fantasy. This is not a […]

A Tribute To Robert Altman

A Tribute To Robert Altman The American cinema never really deserved the likes of Robert Altman, a man who never made the same movie twice, even when detractors accused him of coasting on his reputation. Sure, he largely disappeared in the 1980s (except for the wonderful Secret Honor), and even after his comeback with 1992s […]

Ten Films That Ruined the World

To Kill a Mockingbird Gregory Peck as Atticus? Dignified, steadfast, and impossibly handsome. The story? A masterfully acted and scripted morality play that elevates honor, courage, and human decency above all else. Its a great film, fondly remembered, and one of the few cases where the adaptation exceeds the source material. So what’s the problem? […]

I don’t need a movie to tell me that the Catholic Church is completely fucked. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Today’s date in 1985 marks the first time that contraceptives were legalized in Ireland] I long ago accepted that priests preferred the bung hole to the Sermon on the Mount; nuns were repressed cunts in need of good […]

The greatest of all crimes in American life is not rape, or murder, or even the public declaration of one’s opposition to Jesus, but rather the assumption of superiority…
