Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (1983)

A new two-disc set of Monty Python's the Meaning of Life (1983) has emerged. While on the whole not as funny as Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it does contain the single funniest scene I've ever witnessed. Had this moment gone on any longer, I would have asphyxiated. Terry Jones plays the very overweight Mr. Creosote, who devours nearly everything in a restaurant, then overdoes it with one final thing: a wafer-thin mint. The mint causes him to vomit all over the floor and all over a cleaning woman, then explode. Terry Gilliam's standalone segment, "The Crimson Permanent Assurance" is interesting in that it anticipates some of his awesome visual style in features to come. The disc comes with other stuff, but really, what more do you need? read more...

Prizzi's Honor (1985)

As far as I remember, Prizzi's Honor never played at my local small town theater in the summer of 1985, but after Siskel & Ebert raved about it on their TV show, I bought a VHS copy later in the year. I loved it instantly and watched it many times. By the end of the year, Siskel and Ebert and many others ranked it as one of the ten best films of the year, and it received eight Oscar nominations. Now, in 2017, Kino/Lorber has released it on Blu-ray, and I realized that I had never seen it in any other format besides that old, muddy, panned-and-scanned tape. read more...

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017)

With his girlfriend Greta Gerwig having gone off to make her own remarkable, wonderful feature filmmaking debut Lady Bird, Noah Baumbach is back to writing and directing his own movies. While he is sometimes capable of hitting the jackpot, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is one of his more annoying efforts. In other words, it's a heavily Woody Allen-influenced movie about elite, overly-educated New Yorkers talking a great deal, frequently arguing, and forever seeking (and never finding) a moment of genius, or at least a great one-liner. The film follows artist Harold Meyerowitz (Dustin Hoffman) and his three children from different marriages (Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, and Elizabeth Marvel). They argue about their huge apartment and then they argue when Harold falls ill and winds up in the hospital. It doesn't help that Baumbach casts fussbudgets like Stiller and Hoffman, making everything just a little more unpleasantly tense. Emma Thompson tries to lighten things up as Harold's kooky wife, but the movie is truly blessed with the presence of Adam Sandler at his best. (Contrary to popular opinion, he is a great actor when truly challenged.) He is at his most soulful here, struggling between rage and sadness, and giving the movie its most loving moments in scenes with his teen daughter (Grace Van Patten). A song they perform together on the piano is more than every other scene put together. read more...
