The Circle (2000)

Just a few weeks ago, the Shooting Gallery film series released Marziyeh Meshkini's and Mohsen Makhmalbaf's The Day I Became a Woman. I was afraid then that no one would see that beautiful and vibrant film because it seemed to be about "battered Iranian women," though it was really about their breathtaking attempts to escape domination. Now comes Jafar Panahi's The Circle, a far more heavyweight, but equally brilliant film about women whose escape seems unlikely. read more...

Mountains May Depart (2016)

Jia Zhang-ke's eighth feature film, Mountains May Depart, feels like something of a departure. It still features his muse Zhao Tao in prominent role (and giving a great performance), and it still deals with the ever-changing economy and social structure in China, but it somehow comes across, above all, as a kind of melodrama. It's like something Meryl Streep could star in. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make the film feel a step or two down from Jia's greatest works, the ones that carefully touch upon his various themes without ever seeming like he's touching upon them. read more...

The Life of Oharu (1952)

The life of Oharu is not a good one. She never seems to get a break. Even if it looks like she's about to get some good news, it's evident that the other shoe is about to drop. What's more, Oharu (Kinuyo Tanaka) never did anything to anyone to deserve this kind of life (if you can call it "life"). She merely exists. read more...
