    The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans

    ★★★★

    "His soul is still dancing" is one the greatest scenes in the history of cinema.

  • Heart of Glass

    Heart of Glass

    ★★★★

    Pure madness. Whereas Aguirre, the Wrath of God has a solid narrative and follows a man's slow descent into insanity, the characters of Heart of Glass are insane right from the beginning and there isn't any real conflict or plot. It is one of the most bizarrely directed films I've ever seen. Most people would hate this film, but I was thoroughly entertained by its uncompromising absurdity. Also, it's one of Herzog's most gorgeously shot films, and Popol Vuh's score perfectly compliments the stunning imagery. 8/10

  • Falling Down

    Falling Down

    ★★★★

    Rest in peace, Joel Schumacher.
