The Face of an Angel (2015)

Director Michael Winterbottom (In This World, A Mighty Heart) is frequently focused on serious, issue-driven movies, but The Face of an Angel, inspired by the real-life 2007 Amanda Knox/Meredith Kercher case, seems content to wander off into meta-ness, even if it never arrives anywhere. read more...

Strange Victory (1948)

This poetic, essay-like documentary was released in 1948, but remains — crushingly — relevant in 2018. Director Leo Hurwitz combined harrowing footage of WWII and its aftermath with footage of civilians at home, carefully demonstrating how the ideas of hatred and separation that led to the war continue in America after its victory. Or, as the narrator puts it, the ideas of the losers are active among the winners. Strange Victory is a uniquely thoughtful, forward-thinking film, unafraid to point out the basic flaws of racism and cultural discrimination. True to form, the film's enemies, rather than listening to its arguments and responding intelligently, simply tried to shut it down, labeling it "communist" and blacklisting its maker. In the film, Hurwitz crosses images of worried-looking folks on the street with brutal images of destruction, then moves on to a moment of hope: the end of the war. He focuses on babies being born, all equal in their cribs, but notes their differences, and the ways that society will strive to keep them apart and to keep some of them down. He ends with the argument that hope is still in short supply and that the true victory is yet to be won. And, with hatred and racism rampant in the American mainstream today, that argument is still valid. read more...

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...
