The Long Goodbye (1973)

Director Robert Altman took on a Raymond Chandler novel and re-set it in the 1970s with a shabby Philip Marlowe (Elliot Gould) living in a world of hippies, stoners and freaks. He agrees to help out a friend accused of killing his wife and ends up meeting the drunken, Hemingway-esque writer Roger Wade (Sterling Hayden, in a great performance). Altman further turns the genre on its ear with his audacious ending. Uber-composer John Williams turned in one of his most unique scores here: a series of endless variations on the same tune (Muzak, blues, etc.). Future governer of California Arnold Schwarzenegger appears in an early, unbilled role as a thug. read more...

Miss Sloane (2016)

Jessica Chastain plays a fascinating role, an unapologetically powerful woman, capable of ugly behavior as well as kindness, and refreshingly unexplained; no flashbacks or psychological origin stories are provided. Her Miss Slaone is a lobbyist, who takes a big demotion in order to fight the gun lobby on a new gun control bill. Her sneaky tactics are the only thing that can take on the enormous budgets and influence of the powerful right-wing group. The screenplay by first-timer Jonathan Perera sounds well-researched, and characters spout interesting political rhetoric back and forth to each other, but the downside is that it doesn't often sound like people speaking; it sounds like dialogue. However, Chastain and the talented cast frequently manage to smooth this out, and eventually generate a decent amount of anticipation. Things come tumbling down during a fairly cliché denouncement, however. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mark Strong, Alison Pill, Jake Lacy, Sam Waterston, and Dylan Baker are among Chastain's worthy colleagues and combatants. Former Weinstein man John Madden directs competently, forgoing much of the shaky-cam and ill pacing he showed on earlier, middlebrow award contenders. read more...

Triad Election (2007)

Johnny To's superb, graceful new Triad Election actually has quite a bit in common with Francis Coppola's Godfather trilogy, and so anyone even remotely familiar with that should be able to follow it pretty clearly. Here it is: Lok (Simon Yam) is the current Chairman of Wo Shing Triad Society in Hong Kong. Each Chairman is elected and serves for two years. Lok's time is running out and he wishes to serve another term. Meanwhile, Jimmy (Louis Koo), has become rich from his Triad business connections, mainly selling bootleg videos. He wishes to move into legitimate business, and has a high-priced highway deal all set up. But he's arrested, and his ability to do business in Mainland China is taken away. Only the Triad Chairman has enough power to trade favors with the cops and reinstate that privilege. So Jimmy has no choice but to run for Chairman. read more...
