V/H/S

Be kind, rewind ... or die.


Horror

Rod Lott
My problem with most found-footage films is that there's not much to them. Most can be described legitimately as an hour of buildup for one scene of payoff. When you shorten the stories, however, as is done in the horror anthology V/H/S, you have a handful of payoffs without all that pesky incidental padding.

Stories We Tell

Family matters.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Stories We Tell is not only one of the year's best documentaries, but one of the format's more unique exercises of our time. You may have seen a story of this type before — just not told in this imaginative a fashion. I was reminded of the rush I felt encountering Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line or Michael Moore's Roger & Me in the late 1980s, and thinking, "Wow, a documentary can be like this, too?"

Horror Stories

Import these subtitled scares.


Horror

Rod Lott

Hopping aboard the horror anthology film's current resurgence is, simply enough, Horror Stories, a slick South Korean omnibus whose six directors take a pleasingly old-fashioned approach to four chilling chapters.
