MADE (dir: Jon Favreau, R) - Bart says, "Vince Vaughn is funny in exactly two movies. One is SWINGERS, and the other is this mob comedy, written by, directed by, and co-starring his best buddy and IRON MAN director Jon Favreau. I understand why SWINGERS is beloved by millions and endlessly quoted (well, maybe not so much anymore), because it plays as wish-fulfillment fantasy for most dudes. But MADE is a much better movie, and even funnier. I guess it's less popular because nobody wants to identify with Vince Vaughn's Ricky who's equally obnoxious and self-confident as his character in SWINGERS, but is additionally pretty belligerent and extremely stupid. I'd say he should only star in Jon Favreau projects, because his buddy knows how to get the most out of him, but that would mean that COUPLES RETREAT would be a good movie, and it absolutely is not."
HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (dir: John Cameron Mitchell, Not Rated) - Thom says, "HEDWIG has it all: glam-rock inspired songs, the Berlin Wall, inappropriate connotations to gummy bears, botched sex changes, and the occasional animated sequence. John Cameron Mitchell wrote, directed, and starred in this masterpiece, securing his place in the pantheon of 'Coolest People Ever.' Unlike other awesome midnight-musicals like ROCKY HORROR and CRYBABY, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH has moral center that cuts much deeper than its sass and impeccable cross-dressing could do on its own; at the center of this hilarious, rocking film is a poignant story of acceptance that is not anything less than brilliant."
INTACTO (dir: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, R) - Greg says, "As a small child, the director of INTACTO and his parents very narrowly missed getting on one of the two 747s that collided in the Canary Islands in the 1970s resulting in the worst air disaster in history. That got him thinking: is luck predetermined? Is it a commodity that can be bartered with and misused? That is the premise of this Spanish thriller that was easily one of my favorites of 2001. A secret society of people who have experienced extraordinary feats of luck meet sporadically to determine which of them is the luckiest. This involves having races through forests wearing blindfolds and the ever-popular Russian Roulette. Truly mesmerizing, and not to be missed."
MULHOLLAND DR. (dir: David Lynch, R) - Thom says, "MULHOLLAND DR. is one of those movies you don't show a lot of people because you don't want to hear their stupid ideas and misconceptions because it's like your favorite David Lynch movie and probs your favorite movie ever and they don't know anything and yes I said that guy's cheeks in the diner scene have done the best acting I've seen in years and no that club scene was not superfluous you stupid stupid fart-head 'cos it's like the most intense scene ever and it symbolizes that crazy woman who wasn't crazy at first then you realized she was like that girl in HIGH TENSION which is another awesome movie that I can't get into right now - anyways her guilt and emotion coming through to a maybe cathartic peak and... you know what, no. Just watch this movie. And don't say anything negative about it or I will spit you in the face."
NO MAN'S LAND (dir: Danis Tanovic, R) - Bart says, "When this movie came out it got such rave reviews from everybody all over the world, I was sure it was going to go down as one of the great anti-war films of all time - alongside PATHS OF GLORY or DAS BOOT or GALLIPOLI. But people have already seemed to have forgotten about this razor-sharp satire about three wounded soldiers, two Bosnians and an 'enemy' Serb, who are stranded together on the Serbo-Croatian border. Things are bad enough when one of them can't move from the bouncing mine he's landed on, but the real trouble starts when the UN and the media show up. The film maintains a perfect balance between dark comedy and true horror, and remains one of the most effective examinations of the absurdity of war that I've ever seen."
