Romantic Epics

Be it the grand scale, the inflamed passions, or their universal themes, romantic epics have traditionally made for some of the most irresistible Oscar bait. That trend has been somewhat bucked in recent years, but there's something about the stillness of winter that feels like the proper time to sit down with some globe-spanning, heart-rending sagas.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Directed by Shane Black

Crime Comedy, Detective Film, Post-Noir (Modern Noir) - Rated R - 102 Minutes - 2005

With his scripts for Lethal Weapon and its first sequel, Shane Black helped to create and arguably perfect the modern action film. After taking nearly a decade off from the screen, he returned with his directorial debut, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, a film that shows that Black understands how to do this kind of material better than almost anyone. Slick, funny, and very self-aware, it provides an entertaining experience for those familiar with its antecedents as well as for those who simply enjoy a rousing action comedy. (Available on HBO Go)
