L'Atalante (1934)

Jean Vigo's greatest (and longest) of his four films, the 89-minute L'Atalante is a deceptively simple love story done on assignment. But Vigo was a great poet of the cinema, and when he was given the story of a barge captain getting married and taking his wife down river, he saw extraordinary things hidden within. And he made an extraordinary film. read more...

Call Me by Your Name (2017)

Luca Guadagnino's Call Me by Your Name is a great deal more relaxed than his previous two efforts, the excellent I Am Love and A Bigger Splash; it recalls the talky, intellectual, but swoony summer romances of Eric Rohmer. It tells the story of seventeen year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet), who is summering with his family in Italy in 1983. His father (Michael Stuhlbarg), a professor of archaeology, takes on a student assistant, Oliver (Armie Hammer). Over the course of the summer, Elio and Oliver fall slowly in love. There are a few hiccups, but there's no judgment or punishment (Stuhlbarg gives an incredible, soft-spoken speech of tolerance and love to his son) and the only obstacle is that the end of summer approaches. The characters are smart and poetic, and seem to be fully occupying the spaces they're in; they're not just plunked in front of a backdrop. In one scene, Elio simply wanders around the huge, open-aired villa, touching things, looking out the window, just simply conveying a passage of time more than anything. James Ivory, the celebrated director of A Room with a View, Howards End, and The Remains of the Day, wrote the screenplay. It's a beautiful job of filmmaking. read more...

Gertrud (1964)

When Gertrud was released, cinema had changed into a faster, hipper, younger medium, and the film was not welcomed. It was considered stuffy and slow. Only the French auteurists at Cahiers du Cinema and America's Andrew Sarris praised the film, and -- of course -- it turns out that they were right. Some priceless home-movie footage included on the DVD shows Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and actress Anna Karina fawning over the 70-something Dreyer at the movie's Paris premiere. read more...
