Metropolis (2001)

An early scene in the new anime Metropolis perfectly illustrates how I feel about this film. A detective named Shunsaku Ban and his young assistant Kenichi from Japan are attempting to hire a guide to help them find their way around the gargantuan city of Metropolis. A man sitting behind a desk begins to explain something to them, but they're completely distracted by a giant fish swimming around in a huge tank built into the wall behind the desk -- a fish that could swallow all three of them plus the desk as an appetizer. read more...

Heavenly Creatures (1994)

This incredible film may be director Peter Jackson's masterpiece. It's based on the true story of two best friends with vivid imaginations who are driven to murder. Jackson visualizes their fantasy worlds, from a land of giant flowers and butterflies to a black-and-white Orson Welles chasing them after a screening of The Third Man. The film begins with an unforgettable sequence and keeps right on going, full-tilt. Both Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey (Sweet Home Alabama) make their feature acting debuts here. The DVD includes only a trailer. read more...

    The Wizard of Oz (1939)

    Many younger viewers won't understand the phenomenon of the yearly The Wizard of Oz television broadcast. When I was a kid in the days before video, we had to wait all year to see this film. It mesmerized and enchanted me, and my enjoyment was only enhanced by the fact that it was a fleeting thing. Moreover, I knew that kids all over my town -- probably all over the country -- were watching it at the same time. It was an event. read more...

    The Wind Rises (2013)

    Last year, Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises was shown to critics and Academy voters in its original Japanese form, and it received many accolades, including an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. Now the English-language version has arrived in Bay Area theaters in one of Disney's respectful and carefully-dubbed jobs. The result is just as beautiful and just as troubling as the Japanese version. read more...
