La Bête Humaine (1938)

This adaptation of an Emile Zola novel is a little different from Jean Renoir's usual works; it's more of a thriller, almost a film noir, and while Renoir was able to peer deeply into the material and find its humanity, to give the film his own personal touch, the story itself is a little buggy. Jacques Lantier (Jean Gabin) is a train engineer, working alongside Pecqueux (Julien Carette, who appeared with Gabin the previous year in Renoir's La Grande Illusion). The stationmaster Roubaud (Fernand Ledoux) makes the mistake of angering a VIP, and he has his pretty wife Séverine (Simone Simon) visit the rich and powerful Grandmorin to set things right; Roubaud believes Séverine is the Grandmorin's goddaughter, but in reality, she was his mistress. Roubaud finds out and concocts a plan to murder the Grandmorin (who is never seen) on a train. Lantier witnesses the crime but says nothing because he has his eye on Séverine. Oh, and Lantier is actually the "human beast" of the title; when he is aroused by a female, it turns into murderous impulses. Renoir himself plays a man who is blamed and arrested for the actual crime, a subplot that, frustratingly, never goes anywhere. (This may be part of Renoir's point, but it's unsatisfying storytelling.) And the ending is sure to have many viewers' eyes rolling. But the beginning, a sequence largely without dialogue, with the train rolling through the French countryside between Paris and Le Havre, is stunning. Renoir fans and scholars have debated the merits of La Bête Humaine, which was one of Renoir's biggest financial successes, for decades. For me, it's very much worth seeing for the 85-90% that works, and works well. Fritz Lang remade the film in 1954 as Human Desire. read more...

The Penalty (1920)

The amazing Lon Chaney (1883-1930), also known as "The man with a thousand faces," was one of the greatest treasures in all of cinema. He could seemingly play any role, from clowns to monsters, and could literally play characters that were missing limbs. His makeup was so striking and complete that it might nearly be impossible to tell certain of his roles apart. But he was also among the most tragic of all actors. His characters routinely fell for some woman and failed to win her, not because of a mistake, but because of some inequality; he played on a basic fear that we are simply not worthy of our partners' love. (In real life, he was married, twice.) His characters usually met with a sad, sorry end. read more...

Iguana (1988)

In 1978, Monte Hellman shot the Western China 9, Liberty 37 (1978) then had to wait 10 years before he was able to make his ninth film, Iguana. Essentially a pirate movie, Iguana was based on a novel by Alberto Vázquez Figueroa about a real life character (who was also immortalized in a Herman Melville story), a deformed sailor who took over an island and turned everyone who trespassed into his slave. read more...

Christmas Evil (1980)

Christmas Evil is not the first, nor the last, horror film featuring a killer Santa Claus, nor is it as infamous as Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), but it may be the best. It's extremely low budget, so don't expect anything spectacular, but this story of a toy maker, Harry Stadling (Brandon Maggart), who watches the neighborhood kids and keeps tabs on whether they're naughty or nice, has some fascinating touches. read more...
