Scott Walker: 30th Century Man (2006)

Scott Walker was once a popular and top-selling pop star, both as a solo act and with the group the Walker Brothers (none of them really named Walker); he was even something of a teen sex symbol. Oddly, though he's still alive and still produces the occasional record, he has fallen almost totally off the radar. I'm a music nut and I had never heard of him. So he makes the perfect topic for a new documentary, and fortunately director Stephen Kijak does it justice. read more...

Finding Vivian Maier (2014)

First off, there are the photographs. Even if you're an amateur shutterbug, it's clear that the photos are masterworks. As others have accurately described, they have a certain joy, pain, openness, and curiosity that should have made the photographer a star. But she died totally unknown. read more...

Los Angeles Plays Itself (2004)

As bad a year in film as 2005 has been, there are at least half a dozen movies currently playing for which I would recommend paying full price: A History of Violence, Capote, Good Night, and Good Luck, Broken Flowers, 2046, possibly Corpse Bride and certainly the new film opening today at the Roxie, Los Angeles Plays Itself. read more...

Monrovia, Indiana (2018)

The great documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman returns with this look at a small town in America's heartland. It's presumably an attempt to find out what makes Trump supporters tick, though politics are rarely mentioned, and such an attempt would probably be futile anyway. Instead, Wiseman does what he does best, observing the residents of Monrovia doing what they do. There are city council meetings, peeks inside a gun shop and a tattoo parlor, and the film admires the crops of corn that seem to be the center of the town's business. The camera looks at a pizza parlor, and in a most disturbing moment, a veterinary clinic (where a dog undergoes surgery). As usual, there is no narration, are no issues tackled, and no arguments made one way or the other. Wiseman is the master of "fly-on-the-wall" filmmaking, getting his camera so close and so unobtrusive, that none of his subjects ever seem to be aware that he's even there. They just talk as if no camera were present. His selection of scenes paints a portrait of a small town, both dignified and respectful, but also a little depressing. Regardless, everyone in America should be watching Wiseman regularly; he's a national treasure. read more...

I Knew It Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale (2010)

Just take a look at the cast list for this documentary: Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, Gene Hackman, Richard Dreyfuss, Olympia Dukakis, Carol Kane, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, and Sam Rockwell, plus directors Francis Ford Coppola and Sidney Lumet. What got them all to turn out for this documentary? They all wanted to talk about John Cazale, who died in 1978 at the age of 42, and may have been one of the cinema's greatest actors. read more...
