Eldridge: “That rabbit...”
Eldridge: “Glad that Kurosawa waited to film this later in his life. I'm surprised that Nakadai never won any awards for his role!”
Eldridge: “Sit and watch exploding heads with ear piercing noises !!”
Eldridge: “What a film! Beautiful cinematography and the directing style is very innovative. A great story set a long time ago, in barbaric settlements.”
Eldridge: “I'll need to watch this again and again... I've only seen it once but it felt like I was dreaming when I did... Surreal!! The way the carriage moves!!”
Eldridge: “Malcom Mcdowell was made to play Alex Delarge, Al Pacino was made to play Tony Montana and Johnny Depp was made to play Hunter Thompson...Brilliant!”
Eldridge: “A raw experience of sexual discovery. Leave it to the French to film hardcore sex scenes so casually. It's long, but Adèle's acting is entrancing.”
Eldridge: “If I LOL'd in 2014, I can only imagine how revolutionary Chaplin's comedy was at the time. Charming acting by the two leads. Great film, great ending.”
Eldridge: “Awesome photgraphy, great music. I suggest watching "The Strange Case Of Yukio Mishima" (supplement) prior to watching the film. It will help!”
Eldridge: “Truly amazing! A near century-old theory about the ignorance of the middle-age church. I watched it, like a deer staring at a pair of headlights...”
Eldridge: “The scene where Léone "turns" was frightingly hypnotizing, and the coffin being carried away to the sound of church bells was just spine-chilling!!!”
Eldridge: “Everytime I watch this, it feels like I'm launching for the Moon for the first time... Beautiful images make you meditatively disconnect from reality.”
Eldridge: “Around Liquid Crystals, my jaw was on the floor! I lit a cigarette at some point and just held it without smoking it... I was completely hypnotized.”
Eldridge: “This French adaptation makes the story so much more sensual and exotic. Alain Delon is vindctive in such a non-chalant way it's all too pleasing!”
Eldridge: “I love the story, I love the atmosphere, I love Lang's "noir" directing style... I absolutely HATE the atrocious acting from Marjorie Reynolds.”
Eldridge: “I found it almost frightening how I enjoyed "walking" down the street with Beckert as he was stalking Elsie. Brilliant story, fantastic directing.”
Eldridge: “The idea of "poor longs for nobility" reminds me of Kubrick's Barry Lyndon. I loved the scene where Angel carries the girls over the flooded road.”
Eldridge: “Nothing can prepare you for this film. Hypnotizing close-ups, haunting stills. Bibi and Liv are brilliant. Bergman is truly a master illusionist!”
Eldridge: “This film took me by surprise! Douglas is wound-up in almost every scene, and is in total command of his role. A great film that displays his talents.”
Eldridge: “wHAT a MinD bENd!!! Only a handful of directors could have made Naked Lunch into a film. I'm happy Cronenberg was the one to do it. He did it proper!”
Eldridge: “Douglas delivers a mighty performance. Kubrick stages his immaculate lighting and directing skills. Powerful and memorable.
My favorite Kubrick film!”
Eldridge: “Great story with lively characters. Amazing use of camera angles in the mountains. Misa Uehara is one sassy princess! Awesome cover-art!”
Eldridge: “Great film with a very potent life lesson. Mifune is always a delight! The ending with the arrows made my stomach churn! So graphic... So many arrows!”
Eldridge: “Great film noir with a clever time-line. A ruling performance by Hayden. Includes Criterion's best suplement; Kubrick's full-feature Killer's Kiss!”
Eldridge: “Thrilling revenge story; The Bushido code to it's darkest. A zen Nakadai is calmly furious. Amazing!
Eldridge: “Sexy, thrilling, witty, paranoid, vulgar, hypnotic, perverted!!! No wonder Suzuki got fired for this film! An absurd look at the hitman life.”
Eldridge: “Who is telling the truth here? We shall never know... Very interesting story and beautiful tracking shots in the forest. My favorite from Kurosawa.”
Eldridge: “A wonderful story displaying how the world is evolving too fast. Typical humanitarian Ozu directing a wonderful cast and teaching us a lesson or two!”
Eldridge: “A fantastic jidaigeki with a bright stunning palette and a great story. Stunning box-art in Gustav Klimt style.”
Eldridge: “Nothing like walking into a dusty town to find a dog strutting down the street with a severed hand in its mouth! Great story and cast. Mifune's best!”
Eldridge: “Emotionally poignant from start to finish; one of the saddest films I have ever seen. Shimura is absolutely brilliant!
One of Kurosawa's best!”
Eldridge: “An incredibly imaginative film! Pryce delivers a great performance as Sam Lowry. My favorite Gilliam film and an awesome box-art and design (DVD).”
Eldridge: “The epitome of Jidaigeki. My favorite film of all time!”
Eldridge: “One of the most beautiful films ever made! Overwhelmingly emotional. Shindō's role as the Bailiff is sensational.
Great Criterion box art and design.”
Eldridge: “Absolutely captivating: Awesome characters, grand fleshed-out story, beautiful cinematography. Mifune and Tsuruta make very memorable rivals.”
Eldridge: “A comedic and honest depiction of a 1960's boarding school for boys. McDowell is magnificent here! Almost a prequel to Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'.”
Eldridge: “A visually soothing sci-fi love story rich in Tarkovsky's usual emotional grandeur. Captivating performances by the whole cast.”
Eldridge: “A dark comedy in a typical Polanski fashion. Mia Farrow is extremely convincing as the vulnerable mother, and you will love to hate their neighbors!”
Eldridge: “Witty and chock-full of "one liners". Stanton is commanding with his "I don't give a damn" attitude.
Box-art and design is one of Criterion's best!”
Eldridge: “A unique hallucinogenic (Canadian) thriller. Woods and Harry's acting are surreal. The story is pure Cronenberg!
Best Criterion box-set design ever!”
Eldridge: “A charming, witty and humourous blind masseuse with a lightning-fast katana! The many directing styles keep it fresh throughout.
