Crop And Save
A dazzliing visual extravaganza
The convoluted plot is incidental to the glories of this no-expense spared extravaganza about 16th Century Siam.. The stunning sets, costumes and battle scenes are worth all three hours of this amazing film.
The best of Richard Pryor in a slice of Watts ghetto life
This rarely seen gem has Richard Pryor running on all twelve cylinders, stashed in a Watts bar, rapping with his buddies, the high point of a fascinating unvarnished view of ghetto life that slid down a black hole. This is one of a kind.
Laughter on the 23rd Floor (2001)
Gets funnier and more poignant with repeated viewings
A ring-tailed wonder of a non-stop spritzer with a dynamite cast headed by the incredible Nathan Lane. One of Neil Simon's all-time best, worth seeing over and over. It ranks with the classic comedies of Billy Wilder and Preston Sturges.
Festival in Cannes (2001)
Vicious non-satire of Holywood deal-making from the inside.
Henry Jaglom, who knows his way around movie deal-making from the inside, made a vicious thrust at the film industry, located at Cannes with an all-star cast and a wealth of cameos. Critics who panned this brilliant non-lampoon missed the point. If movie nuts (like myself) ever entertained fantasies of making a big time film, Henry Jaglom's satire will cure them.
Harlan County War (2000)
Honest account of "class warfare" in Bloody Harlan Co.
In the tradition of "Norma Rae," this honest and commendable account of the on-going "class warfare" in Bloody Harlan County between the coal mine workers and the mine owners provides a gritty history lesson, especially for young viewers unfamiliar with this vital chapter in our labor struggles. Holly Hunter is nothing less than magnificent, as is the entire cast superbly directed by Tony Bill. The authetic music of Appallachia aids considerably to this must-see film.
Dazzling script of unusual ingenuity .
The script of Gary Rosen is the real star of this satiric depth-charge with Hollywood as the prime target, obviously written from the inside by Someone Who Knows. A genuine sleeper, it boasts a boss cast adept at Altmanesque overlapping dialogue: Stephen Rea and the underrated Illeana Douglas. Here's a gem that slipped between the cracks with a plot with more twists than a pretzel.
Wild, whooping insider satire of Hollywood madness.
Laughs come loud and often in this "Putney Swope" genre satire of contemporary Hollywood scripted by those in the know, with an incredible cast in an obvious labor of love, wherein the in-jokes abound in every frame. Eric Idle as the manic Brit director Alan Smithee turns in a bravura performance, as does Ryan O'Neal. The internet "critics" who panned it are humor-impaired.
