THE BOTTOM TEN FILMS OF 2006: The D List: an incomplete grade

  • Babel – The second most annoying and pretentious film of the year. Babel is yet another triad of short stories strung together by the flimsiest of excuses. The one interesting story of the three told here involves Japanese newcomer Rinko Kikuchi whose performance is so interesting she deserves a supporting nomination for it. But her short story had absolutely nothing to do with the supposed story-line of this poorly plotted film. Babel is a big nothing mess that the less-educated will think is an important film (because that’s what they were told in the ads!). Wake Up! A feature film is NOT 3 short stories strung together!

  • Running With Scissors – A big failure with no likeable characters and a story-line that forces you to hate everyone in it. Annette Benning overacts to save her life… but nothing can save this mess of a film.

  • The Fountain – Completely pretentious and annoying, this new-agey yoga-spacey film makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

  • The Wind That Shakes the Barley – An important film about the beginnings of the IRA that was ruined by incomprehensible dialog. This film would have been more interesting were there subtitles. Please tell us director Ken Loach….exactly how many people in the world do you think are fluent in Irish? Don’t you think an important film deserves to be understood by your audience?

  • Lady in the Water – Director M. Night Shyamalan keeps using the same old tricks. Get off your one-trick pony horse Night and live up to your reported talent!
