Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2005 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Good Night, and Good Luck. is the must-see event picture of the Fall. It is breathlessly exciting, reexamining with acute detail a moment in our nation’s history that should not, cannot, be forgotten.

A History of Violence (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 23rd, 2005 - Movie Reviews

Cronenberg is a filmmaker willing to push boundaries and ask tough questions others don’t just shy away from, they sprint in the opposite direction in total fear. A History of Violence is no different.

House of Flying Daggers (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 3rd, 2004 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Always an astonishing visual craftsman, House of Flying Daggers is as impressive as anything Yimou’s ever done. The shifting colors and landscapes flow in and out of one another like a dreamy netherworld, while the tiniest woodland sounds sparkle and hum with the majesty of a symphonic orchestra.

The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

While this The Manchurian Candidate doesn’t leave the same chilling residue as Frankenheimer’s opus, this version is still a surprisingly unnerving procedural.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 19th, 2004 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

It’s a beautiful screenplay overflowing with moments of such sudden, tight-fisted insanity that frequently knocked my socks off, all of its coupled with a poignant purity that’s beyond terrific. As early-year movies go, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind isn’t just a surprise, it’s a bona fide cinematic miracle I’m not ever going to forget.
