Mary Poppins (1964)

At her most startlingly beautiful here, Julie Andrews does not play the chipper, loving nanny people might expect or remember. She carefully layers a distantly dangerous and even spooky side to her character, similar to Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka role five years later. The story is about super-nanny Mary Poppins (Andrews), who turns up to take care of a young girl and her younger brother in turn-of-the-century England. read more...

Pinocchio (1940)

Pinocchio was one of five early feature masterworks Walt Disney made at the height of his powers. It's still amazing to watch the sheer delight in movement and the sheer joy in decorating the frame with colors and shapes. As with some of the other early Disney stuff, this is much darker than most people remember or realize. read more...

The BFG (2016)

Due to some scheduling conflicts, I came to Steven Spielberg's The BFG a bit late, after it was already on track to become one of the director's biggest flops. I can't understand why; it seems to me that it's one of his gentlest and most beautiful films, less frenetic than Hook, less grueling than E.T. the Extra-terrestrial and less wispy than War Horse. I can only guess that because The BFG comes from a book by the wicked, clever Roald Dahl, viewers have been miffed that Spielberg's movie is soft and touching instead. But I loved it. (Melissa Mathison, the screenwriter of E.T., re-teamed with Spielberg for this one, apparently completing it before her death in November of last year.) read more...
