Maleficent (2014)

It's really not easy to do a rip-off. It takes a strong scenarist, a great cast, some intelligent references to the original. Maleficient has it all: it is well written, well played, and brilliantly done. Overall, one of my favorites of the year. (29.12)

Love Crime (2010)

This is how you write a thriller. Complex, brilliantly orchestrated and with great performances from Ludivine Seigner and Kristin Scott Thomas. (24.07)

Frida (2002)

I don't know why I've waited so long to see this film. Julie Taymor is an amazing director, and what we see in Frida proves it. Aestetically achieved and completed with a strong cast, the film is inspiring, true and full of light. (21.09)

People who added this item 11 Average listal rating (5 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Mr. Angel (2013)

Buck Angel is an interesting character for this kind of portrait. Avoiding pathos, the director shows us a strong male figure, which truly makes an effort to raise awareness on trans issues. (18.09)

People who added this item 789 Average listal rating (497 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 6.8
Stoker (2013)

A strong trio of actors carries this noir story about family, grief and the unknown. From the beginning, we feel that something is wrong, and 'til the end we're reaching for what exactly is the explanation for all this mystery. (17.09)
natha3l's rating:

Such an amazing cast and a wonderful scenario. This short film leaves me eager to see the next films of the talented Monia Chokri. (16.09)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 1532 Average listal rating (966 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.1

It worths it for the amazing performance of Charlize Theron as Ravenna, the Evil Queen. But her counterpart, Kristen Stewart, doesn't really nail it to my sense. The film has its long moments, and I've had to take pauses for reaching the end. See it for Charlize, or don't. (16.09)

natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 34 Average listal rating (21 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.1

A strange film, a film within a film which tells the tentative of two directors to recreate some deleted footage from Crusing (William Friedkin, 1980). Though the idea is interesting, Franco's message about sexual liberty and right to image may encroach the narrative, which results in a blurred, cold tale about how such a film is made. (12.09)
natha3l's rating:

Real, strong and talented Elaine Stritch truly opens up in this documentary, where we see Stritch's humor and love of life as much as her struggles and her vulnerability. Magnificent. (11.09)

8 Women (2002)

Now a classic. Rewatched. (11.09)

People who added this item 1998 Average listal rating (1294 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8
Akira (1988)

I heard so much about this film, I was definitively expecting more. Maybe it's the genre, the complex story or the english dubbing, but I haven't been moved by the film. I took me long to watch it to the end. (10.09)
natha3l's rating:

Rewatched. Preparing a class. (09.09)
natha3l's rating:
(08.09)
natha3l's rating:

One word : Amazing. What I really loved about the franchise is that there's never a dull moment in Harry Potter. Everything is dramatic, every detail is important. (08.09)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 164 Average listal rating (92 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.6
Claire's Knee (1970)

I wanted to love this film as much as I loved Ma nuit chez Maud. But it was impossible. It wasn't bad at all, but I would have wanted to hear more about desire, which is the key element of the film. (27.07)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 205 Average listal rating (101 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.6

Rewatched. Still charmed.(16.07)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 671 Average listal rating (409 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.3

An amazing Scarlett Johannson in this strong movie on desire, image and fantasm. I loved the minimalism of the scenes and dialogues, which autorizes us to feel more than to try to explain. One of my best cinematic experiences of the year. (07.06)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 45 Average listal rating (28 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
I Am Divine (2013)

Having made a master on Pink Flamingos, I've thought I knew everything about Divine and the world of John Waters. I've been surprised how much new information was in this documentary, and happy to see new archives of Divine. (25.05)
natha3l's rating:

A documentary on The Cockettes, a wild theatre troupe in the 60s era, which featured Divine at some moments. I just love this proto-punk style, with all its contradictions. (25.05)
natha3l's rating:

Performance video. The artist make a list of all the tools she got in the kitchen, in a particularly violent way. (24.05)
natha3l's rating:

A weird silent film with food, half-naked women and a zombie-like aesthetic. (24.05)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 11 Average listal rating (10 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 7.7

A parody of Bergman films. The first apparition of Madeline Kahn. (24.05)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 20 Average listal rating (7 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 4.7

Surprisingly good. A kind of lynchian thriller about the gaze of the porn spectator. A nice aesthetic, even for its apparently cheap budget. (16.05)

natha3l's rating:

An interesting documentary on what it means to be "masculine" in the gay world. (10.05)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 166 Average listal rating (94 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.5

A film with its lenghts, but interesting suspense. Plus Isabelle Huppert and Sandrine Bonnaire make a really good duo. (10.05)

Barbarella (1968)

(24.04)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 159 Average listal rating (90 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7

I feel Dolan wanted to create an atmospheric film, more oppressive and heavy. The intention is laudable, but maybe because of its abrupt ending, I left the movie theater with the impression of something missing, an outcome that didn't happen. (08.04)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 188 Average listal rating (115 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7

Wonderful. Opulent, magnificent and filled with an amazing cast. Strong characters. Dolan surprises me each time. (01.04)

Bestiaire (2013)

Rewatched. Strong, contemplative film. Ideal to shut your head and just live. (30.03)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 393 Average listal rating (220 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.1
Heartbeats (2010)

Rewatched. Because this film is everything. (19.03)
natha3l's rating:
Every film maniac MUST SEE this film. Recycling cuts from throughout the history of cinema, György Pálfi creates a touching story around the cinematic clichés. To watch absolutely. Plus-value : you'll always try to guess "Oh, from what film is this frame?". Hours of amusement. (21.03)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 20 Average listal rating (9 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 6.4

What was that strange thing I've had before my eyes? In the tradition of Tetsuo, Rubber's Lover is a wild cyberpunk delirium with some over-the-top performances. To watch if you feel like it. (21.03)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 137 Average listal rating (89 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.2

An introduction to the gay Ball scene in the 1980s, with great interviews, strong characters, memorable quotes and touching stories.(07.03)
natha3l's rating:
People who added this item 2568 Average listal rating (1609 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.2

For the upcoming Maleficient movie, it was only fair to go watch her first appearance. Anyway, I still don't know my Disney classics, so I must remedy the situation. Great classic of animation, which has not aged a bit. (09.02)

Thrilling documentary about Robert Lepage's work at the Metropolitan Opera with Wagner's Ring. Impressive, and really instructional on the method of Lepage. (05.01)
