Peter Jackson's usual sense of humor and protagonists driven to lunacy is on display here, along with intestinal upheavals of all kinds, lawnmowers dismembering zombies, and other such family fare. I'd place this in the canon of horror / comedy films... great imaginative fun if you don't mind the buckets of entrails.

Disco Pigs (2001)
Rating: 9 A unique love story August 16, 2008

A great movie, but difficult to describe; unlike most movies described as "a unique love story," this one really is, as it focuses on the cloying dysfunction of the relationship, rather than just throwing two oddballs together and calling it unique. Alternating spells of romance, tension, and desperation make this a must-see.

Rating: 8 A surprisingly satisfying comedy-drama June 26, 2009

I like Adam Carolla but was still surprised at how much I liked the movie. Its pace is different than most Hollywood and indie comedies, and it's refreshingly self-deprecating without being a complete farce. I recommend it and will watch it again.

Happiness (Lionsgate)
Rating: 8 Twisted melodrama August 16, 2008

My favorite Todd Solondz film, Happiness is a perverted story of suppressed desires in suburbia. Unlike most such films, these desires are better off suppressed, but bubble to the surface in ways you'll feel uncomfortable laughing at.

Hard Candy (2005)
Rating: 9 Suspenseful and unexpected September 20, 2008

Hard Candy doesn't take the easy way out, either in the dialogue or the plot. Well-conceived and acted, it's an excellent cat-and-mouse thriller. Probably surprising for most Ellen Page fans - along with Funny People, Hard Candy demonstrates her appealing acting range.

Martyrs (2008)
Rating: 9 Transformative horror May 27, 2010

This film is horrific in so many ways, but somehow manages to skirt the edge of exploitation (not that I can describe how). Disturbing in the extreme, both physically and psychologically, but well-constructed and, oddly, fulfilling. Although they're very different films, see this alongside Irreversible.

(And although Hostel is a very different movie as well, Eli Roth should see Martyrs and go back to a promising career in the food service industry.)

Other good ones in the French gorror genre: L'Interieur, Haute Tension, Frontieres (Frontiers), Calvaire. But Martyrs is better, transcending the genre.

Stunningly good. Rent it.
