    The Ice Storm (1997)

    The Taiwan-born, but decidedly international, filmmaker Ang Lee has made films about mismatched partners, tortured souls, and characters displaced within their environments, searching for solace. In The Ice Storm (1997), these elements come together in one film, possibly his best. Based on the novel by Rick Moody and set in 1973, in an era when husbands and wives were playing at "key parties," a typically cracked family assembles for Thanksgiving. The father (Kevin Kline) is having an affair, the mother (Joan Allen) is having a spiritual crisis, the 14 year-old daughter (Christina Ricci) likes to play sexual games, and 16 year-old son (Tobey Maguire) is sexually inexperienced but obsessed with a pretty girl (Katie Holmes) at his school. Lee provides succinct dialogue readings and scenes that sum up great waves of emotions and conflict. Most striking is the ice storm of the title, wherein one of the characters finds himself in awe of, and at odds with, the beautiful, bitter landscape. Sigourney Weaver is magnificent as a woman of many affairs. read more...

        The Last Hurrah (1958)

        John Ford seemed to have been at the height of his powers when he took on this adaptation of Edwin O'Connor's novel. The result feels effortless, not at all preachy about politics, but at the same time timeless (the more things change, the more they stay the same). Spencer Tracy, working with Ford for the first time in 28 years, likewise gives a relaxed, commanding performance as Frank Skeffington, the mayor of a New England city, who decides to run for a fifth term. Frank believes in old-fashioned campaigning, i.e. shaking hands and actually speaking to his constituents, although he's aware that a new kind of politics has arrived and that he might not be able to compete. read more...

          Hellion (2014)

          The third feature by writer/director Kat Candler, Hellion is a sensitive, soulful character drama with great sympathy. It does not judge any of its characters. Jacob is first seen vandalizing a truck, Hollis is a drunk and neglects his kids, and Pam won't let Wes return to his father, but Candler understands each of them, their motivations, their worries, their fears, and their flaws, and they emerge as beautifully heartbreakingly human. read more...

            The Last Picture Show (1971)

            Peter Bogdanovich's second feature film, after his great "B" movie Targets (1968), was a critically acclaimed hit that put him on the map as one of the rock stars of the new Hollywood. Adapted by Bogdanovich and Larry McMurtry from McMurtry's 1966 novel, The Last Picture Show is set in a small, dusty Texas town in 1951. It deals with several young characters who don't really know what they want and don't even know that they don't know what they want. Duane Jackson (Jeff Bridges) is the handsome, happy-go-lucky football star, a big fish in a little pond, perhaps not too bright, but dating the beautiful Jacy Farrow (Cybill Shepherd). Jacy is well aware of her beauty and believes it can earn her higher position in life, or at least higher than Duane has to offer. She tries to get him to sleep with her for the mere status of it (he fails to become aroused in the midst of her irritated, impatient commands). Duane's best pal is Sonny Crawford (Timothy Bottoms) — they share a rattletrap truck — and Sonny is less than happy with his girlfriend so he breaks up with her and begins sleeping with the coach's lonely wife (Cloris Leachman). The best character is Sam the Lion (Ben Johnson), who seemingly runs everything in town, and whom everyone loves. Sam takes the boys fishing and tells them stories of his old conquests, and this scene has an even more vivid quality than the more "present" scenes. The film's second half is filled with loss and emptiness, where hope turns into aimless drifting. For the "last picture show," attended by Duane and Sonny before they part ways, is Howard Hawks's masterpiece Red River, a film that Bogdanovich knew well and chose carefully. The deep-shadowed, dusty black-and-white cinematography by the legendary Robert Surtees (who had worked with John Ford, a favorite of Bogdanovich's), helps elevate the story beyond the realistic and anticlimactic, making it mythic and poetic. The movie received eight Oscar nominations in all, and Johnson and Leachman won for their supporting performances. read more...
