La Bête Humaine (1938)

This adaptation of an Emile Zola novel is a little different from Jean Renoir's usual works; it's more of a thriller, almost a film noir, and while Renoir was able to peer deeply into the material and find its humanity, to give the film his own personal touch, the story itself is a little buggy. Jacques Lantier (Jean Gabin) is a train engineer, working alongside Pecqueux (Julien Carette, who appeared with Gabin the previous year in Renoir's La Grande Illusion). The stationmaster Roubaud (Fernand Ledoux) makes the mistake of angering a VIP, and he has his pretty wife Séverine (Simone Simon) visit the rich and powerful Grandmorin to set things right; Roubaud believes Séverine is the Grandmorin's goddaughter, but in reality, she was his mistress. Roubaud finds out and concocts a plan to murder the Grandmorin (who is never seen) on a train. Lantier witnesses the crime but says nothing because he has his eye on Séverine. Oh, and Lantier is actually the "human beast" of the title; when he is aroused by a female, it turns into murderous impulses. Renoir himself plays a man who is blamed and arrested for the actual crime, a subplot that, frustratingly, never goes anywhere. (This may be part of Renoir's point, but it's unsatisfying storytelling.) And the ending is sure to have many viewers' eyes rolling. But the beginning, a sequence largely without dialogue, with the train rolling through the French countryside between Paris and Le Havre, is stunning. Renoir fans and scholars have debated the merits of La Bête Humaine, which was one of Renoir's biggest financial successes, for decades. For me, it's very much worth seeing for the 85-90% that works, and works well. Fritz Lang remade the film in 1954 as Human Desire. read more...

Child of God (2014)

Based on a 1973 novel by Cormac McCarthy, Child of God concerns Lester Ballard (Scott Haze), an unhinged, unstable young man -- a "child of God much like yourself perhaps" -- who is thrown out of his childhood home and takes to living in the woods. Armed with his rifle, for which he saved up and bought as a child, he hunts and steals to survive. Soon he desires companionship. He wins some giant stuffed animals at a carnival, but he craves a human touch. He comes across a dead man and woman in a car and decides to have sex with the woman's body. He keeps her in his shack, but when the shack burns and he loses her, he must start killing young lovers to keep up his new hobby. read more...

River's Edge (1986)

Like a second cousin to Blue Velvet, which also starred Dennis Hopper, River's Edge is a dark, disturbing look at our strange reactions (and attraction) to violence. Director Tim Hunter lacks Lynch's nightmarish style, and though he simply presents his narrative as a straightforward account, it's no less powerful. read more...
