Dogma (1999)

Not Kevin Smith's best film (that would be Chasing Amy), but a great piece of work, both personal and epic. The scene with Alan Rickman and Linda Fiorentino at the lake is just beautiful.

And how strange to watch a ten-year-old movie and think: 'They couldn't get away with that these days.'

Batman Begins (2005)

Featuring an astoundingly tense performance by Katie Holmes, acting throughout as if a fire-alarm is going off in the background.

A Scanner Darkly (2006)

Easy to admire, difficult to love.
