Bringing Out the Dead (1999)

Martin Scorsese's new movie is both amazing and darkly hilarious. It chronicles a few days in the life of an exhausted, haunted ambulance driver (Nicolas Cage) in his world of flashing lights, sirens, ghosts, and nightmares. He's in a slump; he hasn't saved a life in weeks. He's tormented by visions of an 18-year-old girl named Rose whom he failed to save. He calls himself a "grief mop." read more...

Triad Election (2007)

Johnny To's superb, graceful new Triad Election actually has quite a bit in common with Francis Coppola's Godfather trilogy, and so anyone even remotely familiar with that should be able to follow it pretty clearly. Here it is: Lok (Simon Yam) is the current Chairman of Wo Shing Triad Society in Hong Kong. Each Chairman is elected and serves for two years. Lok's time is running out and he wishes to serve another term. Meanwhile, Jimmy (Louis Koo), has become rich from his Triad business connections, mainly selling bootleg videos. He wishes to move into legitimate business, and has a high-priced highway deal all set up. But he's arrested, and his ability to do business in Mainland China is taken away. Only the Triad Chairman has enough power to trade favors with the cops and reinstate that privilege. So Jimmy has no choice but to run for Chairman. read more...

Election (2005)

Johnny To's sequel Triad Election was released in U.S. theaters in the summer of 2007, and by the end of the year, Tartan had released its predecessor Election on a Region 1 DVD. I saw them out of order, but it didn't particularly matter (although I do prefer the sequel). The action in Election revolves around the battle for the chairman position in the Wo Shing Society. The two top contenders are the volatile Big D (Tony Leung Ka Fai) and the more traditional, rational Lok (Simon Yam). Big D has bribed and threatened the senior members to get their vote, but Lok gets in anyway, so Big D steals the symbol of the chairman's power, the ancient Dragon Head Baton. read more...

Dogtown & Z-Boys (2002)

I know exactly nothing about skateboarding, but this wild, exuberant documentary puts it all in perspective, outlining a crew of 12 surfers-turned-skaters who pioneered the sport -- and, some say, the art form. Directed by the most financially successful of the group, Stacy Peralta, the film features dazzling vintage 1970s footage mixed with current talking head interviews. One quibble: We have no idea how the 12 skaters related to one another on a personal level; we only see them separately trying to out-skate and out-talk one another. Sean Penn narrates. Columbia/Tristar's DVD comes with a commentary track, deleted scenes, and extra skating footage. read more...

Pioneer (2014)

Helmed by Erik Skjoldbjaerg, the man in charge of the original Insomnia (1997), which was remade by Christopher Nolan in 2002, Pioneer is a serviceable, enjoyable thriller. It attempts to capture the feel of a 1970s-era paranoid conspiracy movie, and it succeeds in tone, even if the plot isn't quite so air-tight. The character takes illogical risks in some cases, and in other cases, simply overlooks logic. It even incorporates some very shopworn plot turns. read more...
