    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


    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.
