    Road movie, love story, political allegory, musing on how we treat each other and nature. Should set a new benchmark for what indie film-makers can achieve. Final scenes are balletic; Swan Lake with alien squid. More on the site.

    Batman Begins


    There are brave decisions here which enable both a great film and the fantastic sequel; no Batman for an hour, teaching Spider-Man 3 how to do multi-villains, using Rachel to establish morality. A landmark film in the Superhero genre. More on the site.
