Clouds of Sils Maria (2015)

French filmmaker Olivier Assayas is like a late member of the legendary French New Wave; he began writing about films for Cahiers du Cinema before picking up a camera, and though he has made all kinds of films from biopics to costume dramas, he, like his predecessors, loves to return to the subject o movies. Assayas' new film Clouds of Sils Maria is about a play, but it's set in the world of movies and movie stars. read more...

    The Wind Will Carry Us (1999)

    Abbas Kiarostami's films have a knack for taking us away to a clearer, more vivid place, allowing us to breathe for what seems like the first time in years. He has done that once again, and better than ever before, with his newest film, The Wind Will Carry Us. It joins his list of recent unalloyed masterpieces: Close-Up (1990), And Life Goes On (1991), Through the Olive Trees (1994), Taste of Cherry (1998), and his screenplay for Jafar Panahi's The White Balloon (1995). read more...

      Voyage to the Beginning of the World (1997)

      90-year-old Manoel De Oliveira's Voyage to the Beginning of the World is a lovely look at memories, the past, and endings. The great Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni, in his last role, is a movie director named Manoel working on location in Portugal. Both he and his lead actor, Alfonso (Jean-Yves Gautier), take trips into their pasts; Manoel emotionally, and Alfonso literally, as he visits his elderly aunt for the first time. It's slightly talky, but beautifully autumnal, oddly relaxing and very moving. read more...

        Through the Olive Trees (1994)

        The third part in Abbas Kiarostami's masterful Koker trilogy (sometimes called the "earthquake trilogy"), Through the Olive Trees tells a fictionalized story of the shooting of the previous film, Life and Nothing More.... A young man, Hossein (Hossein Rezai), and a young woman, Tahereh (Tahereh Ladanian), are filming a scene together. When the camera is not rolling, the young man, an illiterate stonemason, tries to propose to the young woman, who has been orphaned after the region's devastating (real-life) earthquake. She rebuffs him off-camera, and -- apparently unclear on the space between acting and life -- in the film as well. Mohamad Ali Keshavarz plays the Kiarostami-like film director who tries to sort it all out. read more...

        An Autumn Afternoon (1962)

        Last year, while making my way through Criterion Eclipse's five-disc Late Ozu DVD box set, I had a small revelation, and window to understanding this great master's work opened. I had always experienced a kind of relaxed bliss while watching his films, but I suddenly understood that this kind of tranquility comes only from acceptance -- acceptance of life's inevitable imperfections and disappointments. read more...
