Alamar (2010)

It starts with the story of a whirlwind love affair between a man of Mayan heritage, Jorge, and an Italian woman, Roberta. They have a son, Natan, before they realize that their two worlds are just too different and they split up. Alamar begins as Natan goes to spend a little time with his father, a fisherman in the Banco Chinchorro area near Mexico. Jorge -- who works with his father, Natan's grandfather -- goes about his day and teaches Natan all about fishing and boating and snorkeling, as if they were the most amazing new toys. Natan becomes enamored of a beautiful egret he names Blanquita. read more...

Boxing Gym (2010)

Frederick Wiseman is 80 this year, and he has directed nearly 40 documentaries over the last 40-plus years. Some of these films are short, and some of them are over three hours long. Some of them premiered on television, and some in movie theaters. Hardly any are available for the general public to see; they are only available through Wiseman's own company, and at not-too-friendly prices. It's hard to say if a more commercial career would have boosted Wiseman's reputation, but the fact is that -- in certain circles -- he's already a living legend. read more...

10 Items or Less (2006)

Director Brad Silberling has yet to exhibit much talent or personality in his films: Casper (1995), City of Angels (1998), Moonlight Mile (2002) and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004). And so maybe he thought it was time, in an effort to salvage his soul, to make a "small" film. His gambit paid off. 10 Items or Less is completely weightless but also unpretentious and enjoyable in a relaxed way. read more...

    Kedi (2017)

    This YouTube Red documentary is, like my son says, an hour-long cat video. But Kedi is also a love poem to the cats that roam the streets of Istanbul, connected to certain places or people, but remaining free spirits. A man tells the story of how the wide array of cats might have come to be there, arriving on ships, getting off to explore the land, and then missing the ships when they departed. Most of the people interviewed claim that the cats have made their lives better in some way; one man claims that a cat led him to a lost wallet full of money, and others assert that cats are like a midpoint between humans and God. Director Ceyda Torun uses impressive camera techniques to capture breathtaking overhead shots, as well as ground-level shots of what a cat's POV might look like. The cat footage is consistently adorable and entertaining; there must have been many hours of discarded footage to achieve this lovely 78-minute final product. Kedi is not rated, and is in Turkish with English subtitles, but is acceptable for all ages. If your child is old enough to read, or if parents don't mind reading subtitles out loud, this is a great family film as well as a life-affirming documentary. read more...

    Louie Bluie (1985)

    I first watched Terry Zwigoff's debut film Louie Bluie sometime in the mid-to-late 1990s, after having seen and loved Crumb. I checked out a battered old VHS tape from the library, watched it and decided it was a minor debut, lacking in whatever personality and skill that Zwigoff brought to his later films. The film has been missing from DVD for this entire time, and now the Criterion Collection has righted a wrong by giving it a proper release with beautiful picture and sound. (They apparently rescued it just in time; the film was beginning to deteriorate.) Seeing it again under much better conditions, I understand how wrong I was, and how much this film is of a piece with Crumb. read more...
