Moonlight (2016)

It has been eight years since Barry Jenkins' lovely feature debut Medicine for Melancholy (2008), which the Florida-born filmmaker shot while living in San Francisco; it was one of those releases so small that even "under the radar" was too big to describe it. Now he has relocated to Los Angeles, and his second feature film, Moonlight, is getting heavy buzz. It helps that times have changed. Discussions of homosexuality and race have been moved to the forefront, with the recent legalization of gay marriage, and Donald Trump's devil-may-care racism in the 2016 election. In fact, given the recent fizzle of Nate Parker's simplistic The Birth of a Nation, Jenkins's film has an outside chance to fill the void at this year's Oscars. read more...

The Deserted Station (2002)

The two leaders of Iranian film, Abbas Kiarostami and Mohsen Makhmalbaf, have spent a good deal of their time training and helping young filmmakers get started. Makhmalbaf has his own film school, and his wife and daughter have released extraordinary films under his tutelage. Kiarostami has helped out new filmmakers like Jafar Panahi by contributing story ideas and taking "story" credit on films like The White Balloon and the recent Crimson Gold. read more...

    Paris, Texas (1984)

    The three major figures of the German New Wave of the 1960s and 1970s took three completely divergent paths. Rainer Werner Fassbinder remained determinedly local and burned out quickly, dying at the age of 37 after pumping out more than 40 films in 15 years. Werner Herzog became interested in issues of man versus nature, and often ventured out into uncomfortable sections of the world. And Wim Wenders became fascinated by America, and especially the open road that connected all the various people and places within. A good number of his movies deal with characters that travel from one place to another, especially the three-hour Kings of the Road (1976), which is sadly absent from DVD. Happily, his best-known and best-loved road movie Paris, Texas (1984) has just been re-issued in a beautiful Criterion Collection edition, available on both DVD and Blu-Ray. read more...
