4. Paris Je t'aime (segment "Faubourg Saint-Denis") - B+
5. Heaven - B (Could have been outstanding but Giovanni Ribisi is terribly miscast.)
6. Perfume: The Story of a Murderer - B
7. The International - B-

Along with Pedro Almodóvar, and considering the Coens have kind of been stinking up the place lately, Tykwer is possibly my favorite currently working director.


Out of Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

True (short) (2004)
Heaven (2002) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Dead heat with Far from Heaven for my fave of the year. I believe FFH is the better film, but damn, I LOVE this movie.
Krieger und die Kaiserin, Der (2000)
... aka Krieger + die Kaiserin, Der (Germany: poster title)
... aka The Princess and the Warrior (USA)
... aka The Warrior and the Empress (International: English title: literal title) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image1/2 - Almost as good as Heaven, but a bit too long, takes implausibility a bit too far, and doesn't have Cate, though Franka is a nice option.
Lola rennt (1998) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image1/2 - Interesting, but that's about it.
... aka Run Lola Run (Australia) (USA)
... aka Lola Runs (USA: literal English title)
Winterschläfer (1997)
... aka Winter Sleepers (USA)
... aka Wintersleepers (Europe: English title) - How do I get Steve to loan me his copy?!?
Tödliche Maria, Die (1993)
... aka Deadly Maria - Damn, Tykwer made a movie about my ex wife.
Epilog (short) (1992/I)
Because (short) (1990)
