The Borgias series has a human, believable Pope Alexander VI. But it misses opportunities to make more of holiness as well as of sin.
The End of the Affair (1999), directed by Neil Jordan
Bringing Out the Dead, director Martin Scorcese’s frenetic examination of three days in the life of a paramedic, is easily my choice for the best film of 1999.
Written and directed by Neil Jordan
Neil Jordan's Ondine is a lovely picture, but it's so gentle and understated that it's attracted little attention. Unlike a lot of other summer films, it never comes at you aggressively.
