    I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK

    ★★

    Coming from Park Chan-wook, one of the most stylish filmmakers working today, it's no surprise that Cyborg looks great. Yet this collection of individually good shots and scenes didn't work for me at feature-length. I understand that this film is disjointed by necessity - coming as it does from the perspective of several people with mental illness - but I found it distracting and ultimately somewhat boring.

    Come for the food documentary, stay for the celebration of cultural diversity. RIP Jonathan Gold.

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    ★★★★½

    I'm kind of mystified by the lukewarm way this has been received. Quite apart from the extraordinary story of Gilliam's struggle to make this film, I thought the end product was magical. His Don Quixote balances on the knife edge between reality and fiction, imagination and insanity. I think (hope, I guess) that this one will age like a fine wine and end up being seen as one of Gilliam's finest.
