  Naked Lunch (1991)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This was originally going to be the first David Cronenberg film to be made outside of Toronto until a panicked Ontario Film Board offered the director unparalleled financial inducements and incentives.
Films about writers and the creative process are not generally action-packed, but this unusual piece has plenty of incident.
David Cronenberg as a director has certainly got a reputation for weird films ("The Fly", "Crash") but this offering is relatively restrained It was something of a pity that "Interzone" was a studio set somewhere (Canada?) but this is low-budget stuff after all.

 ::: Sprout Film Festival 2006 :::
The first films of the Lumiere brothers ranged from charming little scenes of Fin de Siecle French life – women with babies, trains arriving – to exotic shots taken in remote regions of the world.
In 1991, he made his feature film debut with the highly original "Toto le Heroes/Toto the Hero" (1991), a poignant, impressionistic chronicle that used a child's sensibilities and feelings to trace the life of an angry, disappointed man from birth to death and beyond.
This trauma perhaps accounts for the recurring themes in his films, which explore the worlds of those who are considered "mentally handicapped".

 DER Documentary: Jean Rouch - Premier Film, 1947-1991
Rouch explains the sacrifices he made due to the producer that took on his film and the “monster” thus created; his footage was re-edited with a new ending, new titles, stock footage, “tropical muzak,” and a newsreel-style narration heavy on drama and highlighting the exotic.
Finally, the intelligence and insight of Rouch emerge as he “finishes” his first film: “This is not only an evocation of the beginnings of Jean Rouch, ethnologue and film director - it is his first film.
, just as he improvised the voiceovers of most of his other films.” The film transforms from a product of colonialism built around the commentary in which “you no longer see the images,” into a new form in which the film's true meaning is illuminated and the humanity of the subjects restored.

 Van Gogh / Maurice Pialat / 1991 / film review
Vincente Minnelli’s 1956 film, Lust for life, although rated the best biographical film of Van Gogh’s life, opts for the easier path of melodrama than the one chosen by Pialat, which is one of dogged unsentimentality and realism.
The film concentrates on the ordinary day-to-day events which filled up the artist’s last two months, showing how he lived, the nature of his relationships with others, and how he saw the world.
Pialat’s cold, detached treatment of his subject, the film’s slow pacing and near-epic length (nearly three hours) prevent the film from being accessible to all but a narrow spectrum of enthusiasts.

 Apocalypse Now (1979)
Although the film is flawed by its excesses, an ambiguous and incohesive script, and a baffling ending, it still remains a brilliant evocation of the madness and horrors of war.
However, it was the first film to be awarded the Palme D'Or (the top prize) at the Cannes Film Festival.
The title of the film appears as graffiti toward the end of the film in the complex presided over by Kurtz.] The sounds of the war chopper blades (chuk-chuk-chuk) are heard and flaming sights of war are seen at the edge of a green-canopied jungle of palm trees as napalm is dropped.

He worked on numerous TV series and entered the Hong Kong film industry as a screenwriter, winning renown in the genres that were most fashionable in the early 1980s: he was commissioned to write several comedies, whodunits, and "weepies," including "The Final Victory" (1987), which his mentor Patrick Tam directed.

 At-A-Glance Film Reviews: Oscar (1991)
The film is based on a French play which was first filmed in 1967.
It takes place in the 1930s, is about a gangster trying to go straight, and involves a romantic septagon (or something...it's bigger than a triangle, anyway) and lookalike bags, among other things.
John Landis' direction is too plodding, and it drags down the film somewhat.

 Political Film Society - Flawless
The title refers to a yearly contest for the man who best dresses up as a woman, and the film shows some of the preparations as well as the interaction among the drag queens, reminiscent of Paris Is Burning (1991), a film exposé that was nominated for an award by the Political Film Society.
Walt learns that drag queens are females trapped in men's bodies who cannot afford sex-change operations and that drag queens often cope with more masculine challenges than the most macho males, resulting in a hostile outlook expressed in strong language directed at narrowminded straights.
Everybody's flawless." classifies the film as an effort to explain to general audiences that the transgendered deserve more than a break-they should be respected for their courage and their contributions to our society.

 The FreshSite: Film: Reviews: Paradise (1991)
It is an incredibly poignant and sincere film about the simple things in life.
Although there are trivial moments in the film, Paradise is filled with exceptional scenes and segments - most of them involving the sensational Elijah Wood.
It is when Wood and the almost equally brilliant Thora Birch are having their one-on-one sessions that Paradise is at its most genuine (the scene when the two are swimming is singular), but the Wood/Johnson-relation is also touching.

By the end of the film, however, the land where the Mongolian family used to live is disfigured by ugly roads and the urga has been replaced by a chimney.

 The Leader, The Driver And The Driver's Wife Movie Review (1991) from Channel 4 Film
By 1991, the British documentary maker Nick Broomfield had edged in front of his camera lens as opposed to impartially observing the action from behind it.
Broomfield decided he would only shoot the documentary if he were allowed to shoot the tricky filmmaking process too (dead leads, aborted interviews and all), henceforth joining the ranks of the so-called Les Nouvelles Egotistes.
2 - bumbling, faux naïve, and wielding his distinctive sound-boom - would now produce films in the best New Journalism-style, in which the story is as much about the process of locating the subject as the subject itself.

 The Austin Chronicle Film Listings
His HK-period films — The Killer, Hard-Boiled, Bullet in the Head — were supersaturated with Christian imagery and a brooding, males-only sentimentality where crooks and cops bonded over bullets and blood, and the occasional tequila shot made up for the persistent lack of anything resembling a feminine voice.
Windtalkers signifies yet another departure for Woo; it's his first film that had me checking my watch, and it's mired in a shabby script that piles layer upon layer of Action Man cliché atop wooden dialogue and a shifting tone that falls far short of the peculiarly moral amorality of his best work.
Although littered with clichés and shopworn manipulations, this film's intervening dance sequences are so captivating that it’s almost possible to forget you’ve seen this movie a hundred times before.
