Perhaps one of the best examples of how bad the Academy is at picking the best film of the year, Mulholland Dr. was not even nominated for Best Picture in 2001. Instead they chose Ron Howard’s competent but all too formulaic and forgettable A Beautiful Mind that year. Although Director David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Dune, Lost Highway) did win Best Director at Cannes, it took time for some people to give the film the acclaim it truly deserves. It’s understandable in that if there was ever a film that DEMANDED repeat viewings it is this one. It is the first and only movie I have ever watched and then immediately rewinded and watched again (mind you it’s a 2.5hr long movie). I was interested but confused the first time, understandably so I think. The second time I wanted to go erect a statue in my yard in dedication to this cinematic achievement. If you missed out on this film when it came out, STOP READING as it is impossible to discuss this movie at any level of detail without completely ruining it for you. Go watch it, then read this, then go watch it again. (more…)

“You take it away and you show them what they had.”

For those big fans of Inception, you can see where Christopher Nolan got his start. Following is Nolan’s breakthrough picture. One made with an extremely tight budget of $6,000 over the course of a year. Invoking the aesthetic of low budget 1940’s and 1950’s film noir Following tells the story of a writer named Bill. Bill needs inspiration for his new piece of writing so he takes to following people around London. This quickly becomes an obsession as he follows more and more people. Of course he establishes rules for himself like never follow the same person for too long or never follow a woman into an alley after dark. Nevertheless he breaks his most important rule 10 minutes into the movie. Never follow the same person more than once. (more…)

I actually made this one! I took a home movie me and my friends made growing up about a UFO crash and turned it into an Inception Trailer. It’s ridiculous.

Brand new contributor Mary Trishman takes a close look at the career evolution of Inception’s Leonardo DiCaprio.

I hated Leonardo DiCaprio when I was little. That was abnormal for a young girl at the time, which is precisely why I decided to hate him. I would draw deformities on his face in my sister’s Teen Beat magazines and make fun of Titanic, which was my sister’s favorite movie and therefore my least favorite. At the age of 12, I saw Titanic in the sticky-floored and now non-existent Hazleton Cinema with my mom and my aunt. To me, the movie was entirely too long and excessively depressing. I still maintain that perception. It made me cry, and my legs fell asleep about halfway through. And it seemed like every single female between the ages of seven and forty were in love with Leo DiCaprio. I, therefore, decided I hated him. (more…)

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is one of the best films I’ve seen this year, mostly because of its unique Matryoshka doll plot structure and the way it blurs the line between dream and reality. I like movies that give me a little credit as a viewer and ask me to bring my brain to the theater instead of leaving it at home. If you want some more mind-twisting films that also dabble in dreamscapes, check these out. In no particular order: (more…)
