Django



Spaghetti Western. One or two striking moments; otherwise, very silly and dead boring.

Inglourious Basterds



Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds couldn’t be sillier; though there is something admirable in the way he megalomaniacally insists on rewriting the history of the Second World War because it suits the interests of the film he wants to make.

Django Unchained



Quentin Tarantino’s truly awful film. Crude, stupid, an insult to the intelligence.

Spartan



David Mamet’s Spartan is bizarre and crude but quite entertaining.

Ghost Dog



Jim Jarmusch’s film is better and more interesting than I remembered, but it’s still not quite right. Bit too contrived and silly.

Night on Earth



From Jim Jarmusch’s Night on Earth, the scene in which Roberto Beningi picks up a priest with a bad ticker in his cab and confesses his sexual misadventures to him. Hilarious.

Coffee and Cigarettes



From Jim Jarmusch’s film, the scene with Iggy Pop and Tom Waits.

Down by Law



Jim Jarmusch on, among other things, the vacuousness of American cool.
