The Red Violin (1999)

The Red Violin is a surprisingly exciting and delicate epic filmed in several different countries and languages, by writer/director Francois Girard (32 Short Films About Glenn Gould). The movie follows the 300 year-history of a beautiful and perfect violin, which is imbued with its maker's dead wife's spirit. In a 1990s auction several characters who have a history with the violin bid on it. Samuel L. Jackson is brilliant as a violin expert who wants the violin for himself. The movie stumbles on a few conventional moments now and then, but it works well all the same. Greta Scacchi (The Player) also stars. John Corigliano's musical score won an Oscar. read more...

Sabrina (1954)

Sabrina is something of a conundrum for me. It's not a totally successful movie by any means. Writer-director Billy Wilder was unable to reasonably solve the love triangle between Hepburn and her two much older suitors (Humphrey Bogart and William Holden), neither of which was any prize to begin with. Yet, it's a perfect Audrey Hepburn vehicle, with her role as a chauffeur's daughter living over the garage of a huge mansion, and dreamily gazing at its opulent backyard parties. She knows -- and we know -- that she really belongs in one of them, twirling away in some fantastic dress. She sends the customers away with a warm, satisfied feeling. read more...

For Love of the Game (1999)

I love Sam Raimi and I love baseball, but I was surprised to discover that Raimi's For Love of the Game (1999) is more of a weepy melodrama than a sports film, more "love" than "game." Kevin Costner stars as veteran Detroit Tigers pitcher Billy Chapel, now forty and considering the news that owner Gary Wheeler (Brian Cox) is selling the team; Billy's contract will likely not be renewed under the new owners, so perhaps it's time to retire? At the same time, his girlfriend Jane (Kelly Preston) stood him up for a date and has informed him that she's moving away. So the story is centered on the mound, in a game against the Yankees, while Billy ponders all this. He flashes back to his first meeting with Jane, their growing relationship, meeting her daughter (a striking young Jena Malone), and his own celebrity. Slowly, over the course of several innings, it becomes apparent that Billy is pitching a perfect game. For baseball fans, this stuff is exciting, especially given Billy's special relationship with sad-sack catcher Gus Sinski (John C. Reilly); he talks to himself and chooses each pitch as if it were an epic poem. But this is a long film (2 hours and 18 minutes), and most of it is dedicated to the goopy relationship stuff, which is absolutely routine and static, showing nothing of Raimi's usually kinetic style of filmmaking. Even a career-threatening accident — Billy getting his pitching hand caught in a bandsaw! — is tastefully sidestepped. (Only a small role by Raimi's brother Ted indicates that he's behind the camera at all.) Yet as it finished up, I found that the movie crossed home plate and won me over. Legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully appears as himself. read more...
