The Shining (1980)

Stanley Kubrick's horror film, The Shining (based on the Stephen King novel) creates some of the most genuine spine chills ever filmed. Taking a job as a winter caretaker for a giant and remote hotel, Jack Nicholson, his wife Shelley Duvall, and his son Danny Lloyd, find that the long hallways and empty rooms contain more than a few ghosts. The film goes from scary to amusing as Jack slowly turns into a psychopath, taking an axe to his loved ones. (Why is it that Kubrick's psychopaths -- McDowell in A Clockwork Orange, Nicholson, and Ermey in Full Metal Jacket -- are so much fun?) Kubrick's use of space and the eerie steadycam have never been put to better use, and the great Scatman Crothers provides some fun support. read more...

No Country for Old Men (2007)

After two artistic flops, Intolerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers, it appeared that filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen had taken a fall. Not so. They're back with their twelfth and perhaps greatest film, No Country for Old Men. This time they seem to have found a kindred spirit with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy, whose 2005 novel they adapted. All three share a gift for ear-pleasing dialogue, and the general wisdom of McCarthy's characters seems to have overturned the usual hint of snarkiness in the Coens' work. Moreover, McCarthy has provided a perfect story upon which the Coens could hang their expansive frame. It's a neo-Western not unlike something Sergio Leone might have turned in, with wide empty spaces juxtaposed with sad, smash close-ups, say of a crumpled peanut wrapper, or a dime. read more...

Black Swan (2010)

Black Swan is only Darren Aronofsky's fifth feature film, but it strikes me as the culmination of his career so far. He has given us the sci-fi/fantasy films Pi (1998) and The Fountain (2006), and the harrowing Requiem for a Dream (2000), in which Ellen Burstyn slowly comes emotionally unraveled. In 2008, he switched directions with a somewhat realistic melodrama, The Wrestler; it still utilized some of his trademark touches (such as his famous "following from behind" shot), but on a much lower-budget and grittier scale. Black Swan combines all those elements, and more. Like The Wrestler, it focuses on a very physical performance -- by Natalie Portman -- and it looks and feels fairly low-budget and gritty. However, this one is also about an emotional unraveling, and -- like Roman Polanski's Repulsion (1965) -- this one may or may not be supernatural in origin. read more...
