Camp De Thiaroye
4 years ago via Movies on iPhone

A deft epic of a little-seen part of WWII. Full of humor, skill and agony, Sembene handles a broad ensemble winningly. One of the greatest war movies ever made. On a half million dollar budget, it gives us the world. Nuanced performances keep outrage from spilling into polemic while Sembene exposes the quiet viciousness of colonial privilege.

Fritz the Cat
Fritz the Cat (1972)
9 years ago via Flixster

Both a comedy of youthful idealism and jaded disillusionment and a document of burned out remainders from the 1960s. Aggressively incorrect, Fritz still has the power to entertain, jibe and offend, forty years later. If you saw it as a kid looking for cartoon areolae, as I did, have another look and see that this film still holds up. Fritz has a distinctly skewed take on the male/female problem and a freewheeling sensibility that's hard not to love. To watch Fritz the Cat is to appreciate how much things have changed, and how much they remain the same.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel (2013)

High camp retelling in the vein of The Day After Tomorrow.
