Peeping Tom (1960)

From a screenplay by Leo Marks, Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (1960) is a cornerstone in film history. There are many great movies, but only a few (Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Pulp Fiction) have served as a turning point, a marker that changed everything that followed. Peeping Tom was the first movie to turn cinema back in upon itself and play with the theme of voyeurism. read more...

Son of Saul (2015)

You may have seen one too many Holocaust films already, but you haven't seen one like Son of Saul. The debut film of director László Nemes, this one will make you re-think all the others. Son of Saul makes you want to use words like "plunged" and "immersed." Never have we felt so inside this subject, at ground level. The camera follows the protagonist, Saul (a remarkable Géza Röhrig), mainly from behind as he goes about his singular task. (We probably see more of his back than we do his face.) He's part of the "Sonderkommando," in Auschwitz in 1944. In other words, he's a Jew who is working to dispose of all the dead bodies killed by the Nazis, via ovens, open pits, etc. read more...

M (1931)

Even after 75 years, Fritz Lang's first German talkie works beautifully as a carefully constructed thriller and police procedural. Child murderer Hans Beckert (Peter Lorre) causes a citywide panic with his crafty methods and cryptic messages to the press. The police step up their investigations to such a degree that they interfere with the day-to-day dealings of the criminal underworld. So the criminals take it upon themselves to catch the killer so that they can get back to business. read more...

Murder by Contract (1958)

This B-film takes a shockingly low-key, detailed approach to the job of contract killer. The hero, Claude (Vince Edwards), is educated and has a regular job but has coldly decided he needs more money to buy a house that he wants. Calculating and emotionless, he decides that he'll make a good killer, and he's right. He's even hired to kill the man who got him started. read more...

The Battle of Algiers (1965)

On Sept. 11, 2001 I had two things on my schedule, one was a press conference for the Mill Valley Film Festival, which was cancelled, and the other was a screening of Gillo Pontecorvo's The Wide Blue Road (1957), which was not. "We won't let Osama shut us down," boasted the folks at the Roxie Cinema, who later premiered the revival of Pontecorvo's Technicolor story of life in a fishing village. It's perhaps appropriate that another Pontecorvo film -- the great The Battle of Algiers -- should be re-released in this post-9/11 world, a startling and still-potent view of the double standard of war. read more...
