Amadeus (1984)

In 1984, Milos Forman's Amadeus won eight Oscars out of eleven nominations, and so we have a tendency to overrate it. After all, no movie can stand up to the scrutiny that comes with a Best Picture award. And indeed, my favorite film of 1984, Once Upon a Time in America, was not even nominated. But I would easily rank Amadeus as one of the ten best films of that year, and that's nothing to sneeze at. read more...

The Rules of the Game (1939)

A man lights his newspaper on fire, other people boo and hiss, others storm out into the night, while still others swoon, sitting on the curb and taking long walks to fully digest the miracle they've just seen. Such was the reaction to Jean Renoir's The Rules of the Game, which opened in 1939 and was banned not long afterwards, during the Nazi occupation of France. Renoir cut the film down in hopes of saving it, but to no avail. Much of the negative for his original cut was subsequently destroyed during the war. read more...

The Third Man (1949)

Many associate The Third Man (1949) with Orson Welles' masterworks, and subsequently assume that he directed it. In fact Welles had little to do with it — he may have contributed a speech to the screenplay — but that so many believe this is a compliment to the film's style and timelessness. In the summer of 2015, The Third Man is playing in theaters in a glorious new, must-see 4K restoration. read more...

Eight Men Out (1988)

With Eight Men Out (1988), John Sayles attempts to vindicate the 1919 Chicago "Black Sox," consisting of eight players accused of throwing the World Series. He paints them as poor, dumb working stiffs who have no power against the moguls in charge. Superstar "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (D.B. Sweeney) is not the center of attention here, and because of his lack of screen time he comes across as godlike and untouchable. Team owner Charles Comiskey (played by Clifton James) comes across as particularly cruel. Most of the focus is on Buck Weaver (John Cusack), who only had a cursory involvement in the scandal, and pitcher Eddie Cicotte (David Strathairn) who did not have many seasons left in his sore arm. read more...

The Sweet Hereafter (1997)

After a school bus spins off an icy road and into a frozen lake, killing the children aboard, a lawyer (Ian Holm) turns up and tries to initiate a lawsuit. Egoyan directs this wintry tale with surprising, masterful delicacy, without hysteria or overt preaching. Nevertheless, it earned Egoyan an Oscar nomination. read more...
