The meticulous work of the artist and his unique method of poured resin makes Goldfish a spectacularly lifelike collection. The colors are so bright and vivid and the shapes and shadows are incredibly realistic. I can hardly wrap my head around it.
Winner of Best Picture, Best Actor for Kevin Spacey, Best Director, and Best Cinematography in 1999, American Beauty is dark and richly complex with characters that are as much funny as they are sad. It's really a film about the turmoil under placid appearances, about lust, rejection, and how we're all pushed into roles we can't fufill.
Rocky Horror Picture Show is a homoerotic LSD trip. Tim Curry's hilarious and overtly sexual performance Dr. Frank N' Furter is what really makes this film a cult classic, highlighted by the naïveté of Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick and the demented cast of other colorful characters.
This film about a heartbroken artist, his inability to sleep, and his night shift at a grocery store has a really subtle quality to it. Yet it is beautifully shot, well acted, and has a surrealist slant which makes it an original, indie must-see.
A welcome return of a great children's show and a refreshing break from trashy television. A little ironic that it takes a tv show to get children reading, but a really great program for a new generation or those who are feeling nostalgic for the books of their youth.
