    The Treasure (2016)

    Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu (12:08 East of Bucharest, Police, Adjective) returns with this incredibly dry comedy. On the surface, The Treasure couldn't be simpler. Working class man Costi (Toma Cuzin) is approached by out-of-work neighbor Adrian (Adrian Purcarescu), who asks to borrow money to rent a metal detector. He believes that he may have a fortune buried beneath his property, hidden there during Romania's turbulent past. Together they go to the property, accompanied by the grumpy metal detector man, Cornel (Corneliu Cozmei), and begin searching. The search is unremarkable, with arguments over the detector and how deep to dig, with the men standing in each other's way. Things get complicated due to one of Romania's laws, that all "treasure" must be reported to the police. Then comes the remarkable ending; even if you've read a number of O. Henry-type stories, this one is new. Porumboiu subtly layers history and politics into his movie, and even if The Treasure is smaller and lower-key than his earlier films, it establishes him as one of potential masters of non-English cinema in 2016. read more...

    Police, Adjective (2009)

    The Romanian New Wave continues at full force with this second film by director Corneliu Porumboiu (12:08 East of Bucharest). Police, Adjective is a less obvious comedy than the director's previous film, and it's a good deal drier and slyer. You could start by calling it a police procedural, but here it's all procedure and hardly any police. read more...

    Images (1972)

    Made during Robert Altman's peak creative period, Images was perhaps his only foray into the horror genre. It has all the brilliant psychological torment of Polanski's Repulsion, but spread out across a brighter, more colorful, widescreen frame. Susanna York stars as Cathryn, who finds herself staying in a remote house (in Ireland) with her mostly absent husband (Rene Auberjonois) and working on her children's book; we hear passages of said book, which was written by York in real life. She begins to suspect her husband of shady dealings, and she begins to see and hear strange things, perhaps ghosts and perhaps real people. When she lashes out and kills one such intruder, she waits for the corpse to disappear... and waits. Altman tells this story with no hospital room explanations or backstory, just complete interior psychosis. It mostly alienated audiences of the 1970s, though York received the best Actress award at Cannes, and the film received one Oscar nomination (for John Williams' score). Today it can be seen as one of Altman's most fascinating -- and terrifying -- films. read more...
