I was told I had an over abundance of original sin.

Shergold's Clapham Junction

British Director Adrain Shergold has proven himself to be one of the best of our times. His credits include Second Coming, Dirty Filthy Love and Pierrepoint. Add Clapham Junction to his list of outstanding films.

Complex and messy, as my friend Philip says, this film never strains to make a point. Instead, the plot flows in a swirl of hard truths; reality captured in all its ambiguity.

Jeunet's MICMACS

Brilliant, fantastical, rich and alive.

Micmacs' satire and irony shine through even with the language barrier, which I so regretted, sure that the nuance of language was every bit as smart as the visuals.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The gratuitous sex ruined what might have been a solid, plausible mystery.

Take out the sex and violence, put in some character building and maybe then you'd have something good like Prime Suspect or Wire in the Blood.
