    The Blue Angel (1930)

    I'm a big fan of Marlene Dietrich's seven films with director Josef von Sternberg -- except for The Blue Angel, which didn't do much for me the first time I saw it on home video years ago. Upon a second viewing, I'm glad to say I've now changed my mind. read more...

      The Strange Woman (1946)

      Edgar G. Ulmer's The Strange Woman (1946) is one of his few larger-budgeted pictures, and, conversely, one of his least personal. Ulmer was offered the job by producer and star Hedy Lamarr, his childhood friend, and since his regular employer PRC Studio, had recently shut its doors, he had no reason not to take it. read more...

        The Dry (2021)

        Perhaps hampered by the task of adapting Jane Harper's novel, this languid crime drama isn't quite as taut or dynamic as it might have been, but it's still a well-acted, vivid piece of storytelling. read more...

        The Wife (2018)

        I finally caught up with The Wife now that Glenn Close has won a Golden Globe and received an Academy Award nomination (her seventh) for her lead performance. That may be a little too much pressure to review the film objectively, and certainly Close is outstanding. But I think I agree with the IMDB commenter who said, "A very good movie which I didn't like." Close plays Joan Castleman, the wife of novelist Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce). Joe has just been chosen to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the family -- including grown son and aspiring writer David (Max Irons) -- are off to Stockholm for the ceremony. Through flashbacks (young Joan played by Annie Starke and young Joe played by Harry Lloyd) we learn of a "shocking" twist, that the film decides to reveal well past the halfway point. To start, for a movie all about the art of writing, The Wife is, at times, annoyingly pedestrian. Whenever the pesky would-be biographer Nathaniel Bone (Christian Slater) shows up, Joan explains that she doesn't want to be seen as a victim, or the long-suffering wife, yet that's pretty much what she is. When Joe asks "why did you marry me," her answer is "I don't know." And we don't either. Oddly, the flashback scenes seem to work the best, and some of Slater's scenes are interesting, but when it centers back around to present-day Joe and Joan, as they fight and talk about Joe's eating, medication, and extramarital affairs, it turns into hackneyed melodrama. Perhaps if the screenplay had laid everything on the table all at once, then all the characters could have been more fully developed. But as it is, The Wife is a partly-effective exercise that will likely be forgotten after awards season ends. Elizabeth McGovern, of all people, appears in one scene as a bitter published writer that warns the young Joan against pursuing a career in prose. read more...

          American Pastoral (2016)

          Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut with an arguably unwise choice, an adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Philip Roth. His American Pastoral doesn't fare quite as well as this year's Indignation or 2008's Elegy — which were based on slimmer literary offerings — but it does share certain strengths with 2003's The Human Stain. Basically, it's difficult to translate Roth's themes to the screen, but his stories at least offer actors a chance at rich characters, and the new film features several strong performances. read more...
