The Circle (2000)

Just a few weeks ago, the Shooting Gallery film series released Marziyeh Meshkini's and Mohsen Makhmalbaf's The Day I Became a Woman. I was afraid then that no one would see that beautiful and vibrant film because it seemed to be about "battered Iranian women," though it was really about their breathtaking attempts to escape domination. Now comes Jafar Panahi's The Circle, a far more heavyweight, but equally brilliant film about women whose escape seems unlikely. read more...

A Story from Chikamatsu (1954)

As Kenji Mizoguchi becomes slightly more and more recognized not only as one of the great masters of Japanese cinema, but as one of the great masters of world cinema, his films have been trickling out into American markets. Made the same year as his much better known Sansho the Bailiff (1954), A Story from Chikamatsu easily ranks as one of the director's greatest, and its appearance on Criterion Blu-ray in 2018 is cause for cheers. read more...

First Reformed (2018)

Coming out of the same film-student club as Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Brian De Palma, etc., Paul Schrader has always been a highly intelligent filmmaker, but an uneven one. He has made some notable films (Blue Collar, American Gigolo, Cat People, Light Sleeper, Affliction, etc.) and a number of not-very-notable ones. Film scholars might agree that his best work would be his four screenplays for Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Bringing Out the Dead). But now he has given us a genuine masterpiece, a tough, meticulous howl of pain and passion, First Reformed. read more...

Maps to the Stars (2015)

The main problem with David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars isn't really in the film it all. It's just the fact that there are already so many movies about the seamy underbelly of Hollywood, and how self-centered everyone there is and how ridiculous the entire business is. If you've seen a few of these movies, you may not think you're seeing anything new or special here. But Cronenberg is one of the greatest directors alive, and the unique and fascinating way in which he sees things is reason enough to watch. read more...
