Chinatown (1974)

If Chinatown were made today, it would open instead with Gittes in the act of taking the photos of the guilty couple. He would accidentally make a noise and be noticed. He would run away, jump in his car and tear down the streets of Los Angeles, followed by another car whose occupants would be firing guns at him. He would drive on the sidewalk, knocking over a fruit cart, and maybe taking out a fire hydrant, showering innocent passersby with a stream of water. This would all happen during the opening credits and would be done with shaky cameras and about 2000 cuts. read more...

Double Indemnity (1944)

Even though the earlier comedy The Major and the Minor is pretty enjoyable, Double Indemnity is director Billy Wilder's first great movie. It's quite unlike anything else the director ever made, a hard, smooth, crime film full of cynicism and lust and constantly alive and tingling. Fred MacMurray plays insurance salesman Walter Neff. During a housecall he meets the sultry Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck), and after some verbal flirting and some smoldering, they begin plotting the death of Phyllis' husband. But first Phyllis will take out a life insurance policy. Walter, an expert on the subject, will cook up a death that looks like an accident and pays double on the policy. What could go wrong? read more...

La Dolce Vita (1960)

The arc of Federico Fellini's career reveals more personal information than that of nearly any other filmmaker, living or dead. Most filmmakers go through a period of struggle, either at the beginning or at the end of their career, but Fellini maintained a large degree of respect from his financiers, and enjoyed a certain amount of freedom throughout. As a result he experienced the most spectacular rise and decline of any great artist. read more...

Sunset Boulevard (1950)

Of all Billy Wilder's cinematic creations, the most inspired is arguably the device of having Sunset Boulevard (1950) narrated by a dead man. The movie opens with the unforgettable image of screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) floating upside down in a pool, while he speaks to us on the soundtrack. He has the ultimate gift of hindsight as he tells his bizarre story that could only have happened in Hollywood. (Sunset Boulevard plays May 5 - 12 at San Francisco's Bridge Theater.) read more...
