Critically Acclaimed #45: Pinocchio and The Magnificent Ambersons

9/17/2018
More
Roberto Benigni won two Oscars for LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, and he used all that clout to direct and star in a live-action version of PINOCCHIO, starring himself as a marionette who comes to life and ruins everything and gets forgiven for it every time even though he’s a jerk. It’s an unpopular film made almost completely unwatchable by the baffling decision to dub it into English with distractingly recognizable voice actors, some of whom give terrible performances. So why is it the perfect double...

Critically Acclaimed #44: Lady in the Water and Blind

9/10/2018
More
M. Night Shyamalan’s LADY IN THE WATER is one of the most notorious vanity projects in motion picture history, an ambitious fantasy film about water nymphs and grass dogs that argues that M. Night Shyamalan, playing an M. Night Shyamalan-esque character, is the most important writer in the history of the world. It’s ridiculous, it’s infamous, and it’s the perfect double feature with Eskil Vogt’s rarely seen Norwegian film BLIND, about an blind author who uses fiction to rewrite her reality....

The action movie genre would never be the same after Akira Kurosawa’s YOJIMBO, one of the most influential motion pictures in history. The tale of a bodyguard who manipulates two rival gangs into destroying each other created a template that other films would follow, and explored themes that almost none of its copycats picked up on. This week on CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED we’re taking a look at that classic samurai movie, its underrated sequel SANJURO, and the two follow-ups that most people don’t...
