The Life of Oharu (1952)

The life of Oharu is not a good one. She never seems to get a break. Even if it looks like she's about to get some good news, it's evident that the other shoe is about to drop. What's more, Oharu (Kinuyo Tanaka) never did anything to anyone to deserve this kind of life (if you can call it "life"). She merely exists. read more...

There Is No Evil (2021)

Iranian director Mohammad Rasoulof (Iron Island, The White Meadows) achieves an act of defiance with this brave film, which had to be smuggled out of Iran. With a cool head and careful storytelling, it criticizes the country's barbaric practice of forcing men serving their two years of mandatory military service to assist in executions. There Is No Evil consists of four stories, and the first one alone is a masterpiece, a shattering tale that lulls us with the banal before unleashing its savageness. The second tale takes place late at night, depicting a man desperately trying to escape his execution duty the following morning. The third tells the story of a man who gets a three-day pass to see his girlfriend for her birthday, only to arrive just in time for a funeral. And the fourth sees a country doctor at the end of his life trying to make up for past mistakes during a visit from his niece. Rasoulof's patient, painterly compositions have a way of getting at the interior horrors of this situation while avoiding any direct commentary (no executions are shown, and no military authority figures appear). The final two stories might have been cut down for more impactful endings; they tend to drift off into too much talk and analysis, and we definitely feel every one of the movie's 150 minutes, but it's still a must-see. read more...

Ida (2014)

I first learned of Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski in 2001 when I saw his Last Resort as part of the Shooting Gallery series. I missed his next movie, My Summer of Love, released three years later. Eight years later, I caught his next one, The Woman in the Fifth, on DVD. And now here is Ida. From what we can tell, Pawlikowski makes movies that are less than 90 minutes, when possible, and yet they unfold slowly, building atmosphere. He's an interesting director, but based on what I hd seen, I never would have expected anything as great as Ida on the horizon. From its first few frames, it's clear that this is an incredible movie, truly mesmerizing. I think it's a near-masterpiece, at least. read more...

Come and See (1985)

In a perfect world, Come and See, opening June 29, 2001, at the Roxie for a week's run, would put an end to all World War II movies. Indeed, though I was a huge movie buff as far back as 1985 and kept track of the comings and goings of new movies, I'd never heard of Come and See until now. If it had received a wider release, it certainly would have diminished the impact of something like Platoon, and today, it makes Pearl Harbor look absolutely useless. read more...
