You Were Never Really Here (2018)

The Scotland-born Lynne Ramsay returns with her fourth feature film in a long 18 years. You Were Never Really Here is no less dark and brutal than her other works, but it's also a welcome film noir for our modern times. Her remarkable debut Ratcatcher (2001) was something of a coming-of-age story set in a garbage-strewn Glasgow. Her even better follow-up Morvern Callar (2002) told the story of a road trip taken by two women in the wake of death. A long time passed before the controversial We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), a movie I could not get behind because of its uneasy combination of message-mongering and exploitation. read more...

    Les Misérables (2020)

    Les Misérables shares the same title as at least a dozen earlier films, but it is not based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, nor on the 1980 musical based on the novel. Rather, it's a cop story set in the suburbs of Paris where Hugo reportedly wrote his tome. Certainly it would have been easy, and better, for filmmaker Ladj Ly — making his feature debut — to choose an original title. His actual choice could be read as an audacious way of snatching the torch away from an older generation and passing it onto the new (the story involves drones and stolen video footage). Or it could be seen as a way of making a pulpy cop story seem more important, and deserving of an Oscar nomination. That aside, Les Misérables has perhaps two-thirds of a solid movie buried within its 102 minutes. It concerns a new police transfer to the area, Stéphane (Damien Bonnard), who — Training Day-style — is assigned to ride with two not-quite-squeaky-clean Anti-Crime Squad officers, Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga), over the course of a day. Ly depicts these city streets as a tapestry of clashing cultures, including restaurant run by Muslims and a circus run by Romanians, and its these touches that, along with the roiling racial tensions and rage, that make the movie interesting, and, sadly, universal. But Ly's wobbly camerawork and self-serious tone pull the film away again, and it winds up in "not bad, pretty good" territory, if not quite Oscar-worthy. read more...

    Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989)

    When Hubert Selby Jr.'s 1964 novel The Last Exit to Brooklyn first hit shelves, it was considered pornography. The novel and the movie do indeed ooze sex, but they do not titillate. The sex here is just another form of pain, denial and loss. read more...

    The Long Goodbye (1973)

    Director Robert Altman took on a Raymond Chandler novel and re-set it in the 1970s with a shabby Philip Marlowe (Elliot Gould) living in a world of hippies, stoners and freaks. He agrees to help out a friend accused of killing his wife and ends up meeting the drunken, Hemingway-esque writer Roger Wade (Sterling Hayden, in a great performance). Altman further turns the genre on its ear with his audacious ending. Uber-composer John Williams turned in one of his most unique scores here: a series of endless variations on the same tune (Muzak, blues, etc.). Future governer of California Arnold Schwarzenegger appears in an early, unbilled role as a thug. read more...

    As I Lay Dying (2013)

    It has been decades since anyone attempted to adapt a William Faulkner novel for the big screen, and certainly As I Lay Dying -- a novel with fifteen different narrators -- was a difficult choice for actor/writer/director and all-around Renaissance man James Franco. Perhaps the easiest thing would have been to make one of those glossy, reverent, literary movies that never sprang to life. What Franco came up with instead with is messy, bizarre, muted, and confusing, but it's also heartfelt and personal. It takes more risks than most movies. read more...
