    The Squid and the Whale (2005)

    Writer/director Noah Baumbach has come into his own. Previously he completed three unremarkable features (Kicking and Screaming, Highball and Mr. Jealousy) that would have sent most filmmakers running back to a normal, steady day job. But Mr. Baumbach persisted, writing pieces for The New Yorker, marrying Jennifer Jason Leigh and co-authoring the latest Wes Anderson film, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. He has returned to filmmaking with a new gusto, and The Squid and the Whale arrives as one of the most acutely observed views of family life in a great while. read more...

      Midnight Cowboy (1969)

      In 1969, times were changing and movies were changing too. Midnight Cowboy was an unabashedly adult movie with adult themes and experimental touches, and it took Englishman John Schlesinger (Billy Liar) to bring this approach to an otherwise gritty New York story. read more...

        A Private War (2018)

        In A Private War, Rosamund Pike gives a committed, detailed performance as war correspondent Marie Colvin, who died while covering the siege of Homs in Syria in 2012. It's a fine piece of work, and a great character, an intrepid rule-breaker who was so committed to bringing the truth to light that she neglected her own safety. (Her trademark eyepatch came after losing her sight in one eye in an explosion in Sri Lanka.) Very few other actors have much of a chance in their scenes with Pike, but Tom Hollander fares the best as her Sunday Times editor, Sean Ryan, whose relationship with her is interestingly complex. Stanley Tucci is a natural scene-stealer, but his character as a brief boyfriend of Colvin's is relatively unimportant in the grand scheme of things. The second-biggest role belongs to Jamie Dornan as photographer Paul Conroy, but he's almost constantly lost in Colvin's shadow. In the film, Colvin continually stresses finding the personal within her stories, and the movie itself fails to do just that. It stays firmly on the surface, rigid with importance. It chugs along in a constant rage about the continuing misery in Syria, and about the general indifference and ignorance of the rest of the world. It's the feature directing debut of Matthew Heineman, who made the excellent documentaries Cartel Land and City of Ghosts, and while he combines realism and fiction in interesting ways, the movie is just a gray, brutal assault, a stern lecture. It could rally a few to action, but the more likely effect is that viewers will feel punished. read more...

        The Great Raid (2005)

        A World War II picture with a title like The Great Raid might conjure up images of gung-ho war classics like The Great Escape, Hell and High Water, Merrill's Marauders, They Were Expendable, The Dirty Dozen, or The Guns of Navarone. Unfortunately, the days of that kind of war movie are long gone. War movies today must walk a fine line between nobility and responsibility. Instead of gut-busting images of Lee Marvin or John Wayne, we get puffy, introspective images of Tom Hanks.But The Great Raid doesn't even score an "A" list cast, much less anyone with a hardened jawbone whom we can rally around. read more...

        The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)

        The Killing of a Chinese Bookie is my favorite John Cassavetes movie, perhaps because it's the most appealingly sleazy. Ben Gazzara stars as Cosmo Vitelli, the owner of a dingy, depressing strip club, though Cosmo clearly loves it and dedicates every fiber of his being to its daily operation. One night he goes out on the town with three of his favorite girls and racks up a serious gambling debt. Already in trouble with the loan sharks, they strike a deal with him: if he kills the "Chinese bookie" of the title, his debts will be cleared. Cosmo heads off into the night to perform his deed, breaking into the victim's fancy house for a striking juxtaposition to his club. But of course things do not go as expected. read more...
