Could have passed as a high-quality production of a Jesus Franco movie but with his trademark of nude bodies and extreme "in-your-face" sex removed. Yes, there are some pretty heavy dark S&M themes involved but it happens "behind closed doors" or are mostly expressed in the actresses' faces as it explore seriously it's theme. Franco regular Monica Swinn even have a cameo. Cat's Eyes' music add to the atmosphere.

It drew me of power as I really fought with my will to be interested in this audio-visual poetry piece. Maybe it was the digital video that ruined the experience or that the actors lack charisma even if they may look realistic and normal. Only the subplot with a secondary character that swap identity with a stranger had some fun (if predictable) playfulness to it.

I like this journey through Cape Verde and how one man hope to finally discover his roots but instead end up on a tourist trip of sex, drugs and great music. The twist at the end is probably the only thing sort-of predictable with the movie as the rest of the film feel autenthic. The shots of the landscape make one want to take a plane trip and go discover the area for myself.

It is another of these college teen sex comedies but done the French way making it at least a little more exotic, charming and original than the rude and predictable films in the Hollywood studio system. The french kissing looks nice though.

More a social commentary than a comedy to be honest, but it is an important comment on child wellfare, poverty and women who leave their children on the doorstep of others. Chaplin is completely overshadowed by the kid too who charms and warms the viewer in every single scene.

Never has a sad and mad expedition been shown with such tragic and insanity as with this one. In the middle stands Klaus Kinski doing one of his most famous trademark roles by being only himself at his most crazed and ogre-like. The few women that surrounds him are equally powerful and the jungle cinematography phenomenal. What Werner Herzog got out of his lousy budget and gonzo filming is a miracle in itself.

How to describe this? As a knife that is plunged into your body and soul but the knife doesn't kill you at once but only slowly while you have seen your loved one at her most degrading, abused and naked before you arrived at your death happily knowing that she will be safe and protected in the end. Schneider's daring performance is phenomenal to watch. Kinski an added bonus. This Polish/French hybrid is perfection.

Warsaw Bridge (1989)

Classic music and great locations mix together in a fragmented drama inspired on a newspaper clip that is more intriguing and better written than the dialogue that seem improvised on the spot. There are some fascinating shots but the dramatic scenes don't work good together. Maybe it would have been better as a full-blown atmosphere piece instead?

Blending past and present day in order to show fragmented parts of Bach's life. It is an intriguing piece filled with classic music, architecture and nature. It may not give new followers to either composer or director, but there is a chance that it could create interest in exploring the life and works of both of them.

The Gold Rush (1925)

As an inventor of comedic scenes, timing and making fun of tragic events, Chaplin was a master and this film show him at his best. Not much else to say about it than to experience it.

Oddball of a film that lacks depth, especially in it's characterization and especially why the barber is so jealous as he is. Some comedic situations are good but the film never end up better than half there.

Barbara Stanwyck has to be one of the best temptresses ever put on screen as Henry Fonda gets hitched on her little finger. There is not much of a breather here either as this one is filled up with fun great scenes from start to end. Truly a masterpiece in it's genre.

Maybe a bit too much a personal film project by Fassbinder for me to enjoy - and I almost didn't get through the film either as there was a slaughter house sequence that was more gory and disgusting than any horror movie I have ever seen in my life. Even so, Volker Spengler do a powerful performance that is hard to forget.

By-the-numbers Tom and Jerry. Never truly boring or bad. Only predictable as Tom has to save the house from getting dirty from Jerry, but even the most predictable short with these two is worth a watch.

Surprisingly "scary" short that even address the drowning of small kittens. It may end predictable but would they even dare to make a cartoon like this in these political correct days?

Fun due to the crazed, warped and colorful bird even if the short itself is a rewrite of-sorts on "The Little Orphan".

Among the better known shorts and it is hard not to love the innocent lion who arrives in the house seeking help for his escape from the circus. It is hard not to smile of Tom's wicked laughter either.

While the conducting a symphony with two rivals has been done before and the short is mostly a bore I felt the ending was worth the waith. At least the symphony was good while I was waiting.

Jerry is presented as a love present to Toodles and having to do tricks for Tom and his new love pet before revenge is sweet by presenting first a rival for her love before running away with the female cat himself. It is a cute ending which show that even in a Tom and Jerry short there is possibility for love between a cat and a mouse.
