Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

Whether or not the courtroom details are accurate, Anatomy of a Murder has got a hell of a story. It was based on a popular book of a true case, by Robert Traver (a.k.a. Judge John D. Voelker), and Preminger had the iron guts enough to not make it sensationalist or sentimental. He just made a cold, hard movie. It goes on for two hours and forty minutes because it needs to, and that time feels just right. James Stewart, in unquestionably one of his greatest performances, stars as the fisherman lawyer who unexpectedly gets called for the big murder case. A soldier's wife (Lee Remick) is raped, and her husband (Ben Gazzara) is charged with murdering the rapist. George C. Scott, in one of his first roles, plays the prosecutor. Joseph Welch, a real-life judge, gives a marvelous performance as (what else?) the judge. read more...

Malcolm X (1992)

When I initially saw Spike Lee's Malcolm X in 1992, I was disappointed. I had recently read Malcolm X's autobiography, as told to Alex Haley, and I had a different image of Malcolm in my head. For me Denzel Washington's performance was too charming; the actor's dazzling smile came through when I felt the character should have been more fearsome. Also, I found Lee's direction a bit too flashy. read more...

La Grande Illusion (1937)

The original camera negative was used for the re-release of Jean Renoir's masterful La Grand Illusion (1937). That's the actual film that was loaded into Renoir's camera and exposed by him in front of his actors in 1937. That this negative still exists, much less is in usable shape, is a small miracle. The result is a pristine and sparkling new print of a major classic now available on a beautiful Criterion DVD. read more...

One of the most coveted and elusive of all home video releases, Luchino Visconti's The Leopard finally makes its monumental DVD debut in 2004, and it was worth the wait.

The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)

In the 1950s and 1960s, many classical filmmakers, including George Stevens, William Wyler, Vincente Minnelli, George Cukor, Robert Wise, and Davie Lean, made the jump from intimate works to giant-sized spectacles. Audiences, critics, the Academy, and even the filmmakers themselves seemed totally awestruck by the new size and scope of movies; all of these filmmakers won Oscars for their gargantuan work. However, in some cases, underneath the size and scope, very little remains. read more...
