Certified Copy (2011)

After a decade's worth of experiments with video (Ten, Five Dedicated to Ozu, Shirin, etc.), the great Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami returns to the commercial fold, and this time with a genuine international movie star, Juliette Binoche, helping out (she also appeared briefly in Shirin). Theoretically, this could be Kiarostami's "selling out" or else his most accessible movie to date, but instead it's one of his most deliriously puzzling. Most viewers -- especially those that demand answers from their movies -- will walk away not knowing what to make of it. But if you allow more than one possibility to this scenario, it emerges as a masterpiece, and Kiarostami's best film since The Wind Will Carry Us (1999). read more...

Vanya on 42nd Street (1994)

I've never really seen anything like Vanya on 42nd Street. The movie starts with Louis Malle's familiar gritty, low budget camerawork that characterized My Dinner With Andre. We see Wallace Shawn, now more readily recognized on the street than he was thirteen years ago, standing eating a knish. Andre Gregory walks down 42nd street, followed by Julianne Moore and other actors. They meet in front of a dilapidated old theatre and go inside. We know we are going to see Chekov's Uncle Vanya. One woman says she's never seen it. Gregory begins to explain it to her. Everyone begins to wander around the beautiful, crumbling old theatre, chatting, setting up. Wallace Shawn lays down on a bench and shuts his eyes. Then he wakes up. Two people begin having a conversation. Slowly, we realize that the play has begun. Shawn is now Uncle Vanya. read more...

Goodbye to Language 3D (2014)

Now eighty-three years old, Jean-Luc Godard has decided to make his first 3D feature; I read somewhere that he went to see Piranha 3D and it inspired him to make this. It's a delicious image, the crusty old genius sitting in a multiplex, wearing funny glasses and perhaps even eating popcorn. Regardless of whether or not it's true, the old master seems in a more playful mood this time out. Goodbye to Language 3D is only 70 minutes long, as baffling as anything he has ever made, but those moments and thoughts that jut out from the screen seem so feisty now, as if his movie were a batch of piranha devouring whatever ideas we might have had about what cinema is, should be, or can be. read more...

The Intruder (2005)

The latest release by the brilliant French filmmaker Claire Denis, The Intruder is a gloriously poetic, yet often baffling experience about an old man's final days before, during and after a black market heart transplant. The man (Michel Subor) travels from snowy, chilly woods on one side of the world to a tropical paradise on the other, looking for his neglected offspring. read more...

Time Regained (1999)

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a movie called Sunshine that ran three hours and was too overly simplified. Now we have a movie called Time Regained that runs three hours and is too overly complicated. Though if I had a choice of which one to see again, it would be Time Regained, without hesitation. Even though I was almost always completely in the dark, this new film by director Raul Ruiz is inventive and astounding in ways I've never seen before. read more...
