Bringing Out the Dead – Review

Bringing out the Dead is a Nicholas Cage, Ving Rhames fuel-ride that just so happens to be written for the screen by Paul Schrader & directed by the king of New York film, Martin Scorsese.

The Beat That My Heart Skipped - Review

Fingers was writer and director James Toback’s first film as a director, Toback is a respected film artist who has a body of solid, rather than outstanding, work. Fingers is his finest film. Harvey Keitel stars as a man who is torn between his Mob-connected father and his concert pianist mother.

Theo Angelopoulos is best known for his sweeping histories, and here narrows his gaze onto a shorter period of time and a smaller group of characters. But the mastery of one of the greatest living directors is still present. He can conduct a chamber piece equally as well as he can a symphony.
