La Vie En Rose
October 29th, 2009

Cotillard as Piaf is as magnetic as the real singer was (or how you imagine her to be if you aren’t familiar with her), making the character all her own, a blaze of charismatic personality with her child-like demand that her every pleasure be met and her boisterous sense of self and song.

Rescue Dawn
March 6th, 2007

With the help of Bale’s increasing onscreen confidence in leading roles, Herzog wields the camera to achieve a taut, urgent tone not simply like it’s a war-zone documentary but through a warped, almost fish-eye lens that brings every surrounding into frighteningly close relief.


Mongol
October 16th, 2008

We get a very Hollywood version of the man here — portraying him as a simple man who loves his chosen wife and wants peace in his land. The life he’s famous for — conquering the known world of the Eurasian continent by slaughtering half of it is a brief send-off in the supertext at the end.

The Page Turner
April 6th, 2008

We meet Melanie years later (Deborah Francois) as a lovely young law clerk; beautiful and dispassionate, with barely a single emotion crossing her flawless face. When fate puts her in Ariane’s grand home as a nanny to her son, we still get no clue what Melanie is thinking, but we know she’s cooking something up.


Scarface: Special Edition
March 4th, 2003

The remake of a successful gangster film from Hollywood’s golden age, it charts the rise of Cuban refugee Tony Montana (Pacino, a little hammy in hindsight but giving the role his all). All Montana has is his word and his balls. And he don’t bust neither of them for nobody.

Buddha’s Lost Children
April 1st, 2008

An ex boxer-turned Buddhist monk collects horses and orphaned, malnourished children in his far north Thailand monastery, wielding his own special kind of boisterous, unsentimental love to boys who’ve never known it.
