Experimenter (2015)

Filmmaker Michael Almereyda tells the story of psychologist Stanley Milgram (Peter Sarsgaard), who, in the 1960s, invented a startling experiment. Subjects are asked to read questions to another subject, and punish them with electric shocks when they answer wrong. It's quickly revealed that the person receiving the shocks is part of the experiment, and the real test is whether the subject will buck authority and stop administering the shocks. Amazingly, very few people did; they just kept on giving shocks, even though they knew it was wrong and their very physical reactions showed they were against it. They simply could not disrespect authority. Almereyda does a wonderful job of re-creating the period, and also uses many of his own experimental techniques, such as artificial sets and fourth wall-breaking, but eventually the movie wears thin. Milgram is shown in the years following his breakthrough experiment, defending it to people who disbelieve and trying new experiments that never reach its power. Many fascinating actors signed up for this, some appearing in tiny roles. Winona Ryder has a fairly big part as Milgram's wife, but doesn't get to do much. read more...

La Chienne (1931)

Legendary French director Jean Renoir hunkered down and got serious for this, his first real masterpiece and his most toxic movie. Yet it was the only time he dabbled in the "low" thriller genre. read more...

Maps to the Stars (2015)

The main problem with David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars isn't really in the film it all. It's just the fact that there are already so many movies about the seamy underbelly of Hollywood, and how self-centered everyone there is and how ridiculous the entire business is. If you've seen a few of these movies, you may not think you're seeing anything new or special here. But Cronenberg is one of the greatest directors alive, and the unique and fascinating way in which he sees things is reason enough to watch. read more...
