"Doesn't entirely point its camera inward, and so finds a bit of life."

Jay Seaver says... "Cannes has become so associated with its film festival that just setting a movie there seems to warp perception of it and the people involved; it becomes part of this insular world that means something to filmmakers and influential critics who perhaps don't realize how many people it can leave on the outside. "Claire's Camera" mostly avoids that - it's set in that world and in many ways about it, but not so much so that it loses its basic charm." (more)
"Prettier than the typical action movie - and louder!"

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT BOSTON UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL XX: "Let the Corpses Tan" isn't the same sort of ultra-violence as high art as other films you might describe that way - it's more about the striking image than the impeccable choreography, the sort of thing that you can screen-capture and show to someone who doesn't necessarily go for big action rather than the clips you dissect looking for cuts and doubling. Fortunately, it's in the hands of some of the best in the business at creating striking images and just enough to stitch them together, and they're happy to dispense with subtlety." (more)
"Tries to stretch a few minutes into a movie, and can you blame it?"

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT BOSTON UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL XX: It's a challenge to build a feature-length film around a specific, brief incident; the options generally seem to be providing enough background to lead up to it (and risk swallowing the important moment) and pointedly attacking it from different perspectives in a way that risks making the audience numb to the moment. "My Name Is Myeisha" tries to do a little of both, and there's no doubt that, by the end, the audience can feel the filmmakers stretching, although many will find themselves not exactly begrudging it that extension."

"All of the Robots and Monsters, None of the Fun"

alejandroariera says... "I think I owe Guillermo del Toro an apology after having seen "Pacific Rim: Uprising." Yes, Guillermo, I was way too harsh on my original review of "Pacific Rim." Yes, I found the dialogue in "Pacific Rim" goofy and dumb and I missed the lyrical touches of your best films. But, man, your film was still fun! Today, whenever I stumble upon it while flipping through channels at home, I can’t help but stop and watch it for at least ten minutes regardless of the scene I stumble into, whether it’s that glorious shot of the Jaeger dragging a cargo ship to later use it as baseball bat on one of your Lovecraftian Kaijus or that equally beautiful shot of the very young Mako Kori standing alone, in the debris-filled streets of her city, staring upwards at the Jaeger piloted by Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba). You may be the producer of "Pacific Rim: Uprising" but what director Steven S. De Knight (better known for his work on the Starz series "Spartacus") and his three co-writers –Emily Carmichael, Kira Snyder and T.S. Nowlin– have done to your original vision is more than shameful." (more)
