    I plan on eventually revisiting Eyes Wide Shut, as well as all of Kubrick's films, but it might take awhile. If I find that book I'll most likely check it out.

    Anarchy is an appealing concept to a lot of people, at least young ones. This film takes that concept and works with it, and ultimately betrays it. Anarchy doesn't work, but I wouldn't call it...

    Yeah but Michael McDonald singing "Up There" makes it all seem worth it. I'll admit that the childish side of South Park is what initially won me over. I never laughed harder in my life than the...

    I've still been unable to find Edward Yang's A Brighter Summer Day, and am just being patient until it plays in a theater here, or gets a proper DVD release (god willing).

    Well took awhile to get back, but a few quick comments.

    Sin City had no nominations of any kind.
