The Woman in the Window (1944)

At last, this prime example of Fritz Lang film noir has been released on a Region 1 DVD. Many members of the cast and crew stayed on with Lang to make the better-known Scarlet Street the following year, but The Woman in the Window deserves recognition as well. read more...

Swamp Water (1941)

In 1940, Jean Renoir fled Nazi-occupied France and came to the United States where, typically, studio heads had no idea how to treat a master filmmaker of his ilk. His first American film, Swamp Water (1941), almost feels like the work of someone else, although it still contains a few of its maker's signature themes, and it's an excellent entertainment in any regard. Ben (Dana Andrews) ventures into the vast, deadly Okefenokee Swamp to find his lost dog, and accidentally runs into escaped fugitive and accused murderer Tom Keefer (Walter Brennan). They eventually become partners and form a trapping business, but Ben's long absences rub both his controlling father, Thursday (Walter Huston), and his fickle sweetheart (Virginia Gilmore) the wrong way. At the same time, he becomes closer to Tom's grown daughter, Julie (Anne Baxter), and begins to promise her a new life when her father returns. Meanwhile, creepy Jesse Wick (John Carradine) begins hanging around Thursday's second wife a bit too much, leading to a confrontation with Ben. Dudley Nichols wrote the screenplay (from a novel by Vereen Bell), and while he delicately balances the novel's intricate plotlines, he also imbues the movie with his trademark seriousness; in this case it works. It elevates the pulp to the level of art. Because of Nichols and because of a selection of recognizable stock players (Carradine, Ward Bond, etc.), many have said that Swamp Water seems like a John Ford film, but moments of delicate humanity, as when Ben steps into the line of fire to prove to Tom that he's really a friend, are all Renoir. read more...

    Man of the West (1958)

    With this film, the great American director Anthony Mann simultaneously left the third stage of his career and entered the fourth; he went from unremarkable B-films, to film noir, to Westerns and finally to epics. Man of the West is a combination of the James Stewart Westerns that came before it and the epic ideas that would drive his final few films. read more...

    Get on Up (2014)

    The biopic about James Brown was only inevitable, I suppose, though it's a good thing that Chadwick Boseman landed the role of the Godfather of Soul in Get on Up. He's magnificent, and effortlessly conveys an awesome performance energy throughout the movie. (Boseman also played Jackie Robinson in last year's underrated 42.) Like nearly any major Hollywood biopic it's this centerpiece performance that drives the movie. read more...

      The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

      Josey is a peaceful farmer whose wife and children are raped and murdered by "Redlegs," or Union soldiers who have let victory go to their heads. Josey joins a band of confederates to get his revenge. After the war, the "Redlegs" give the soldiers a chance to surrender, but instead shoot them all down in cold blood. Josey escapes, reluctantly joins forces with the aforementioned ragtag team. They include the wonderful Chief Dan George, and Sondra Locke as the frail, perpetually dazed Laura Lee; Locke was Eastwood's girlfriend for a time, and she appeared in several of his films, always to their detriment. read more...
