The Long Goodbye (1973)

Director Robert Altman took on a Raymond Chandler novel and re-set it in the 1970s with a shabby Philip Marlowe (Elliot Gould) living in a world of hippies, stoners and freaks. He agrees to help out a friend accused of killing his wife and ends up meeting the drunken, Hemingway-esque writer Roger Wade (Sterling Hayden, in a great performance). Altman further turns the genre on its ear with his audacious ending. Uber-composer John Williams turned in one of his most unique scores here: a series of endless variations on the same tune (Muzak, blues, etc.). Future governer of California Arnold Schwarzenegger appears in an early, unbilled role as a thug. read more...

In Old Arizona (1929)

Short story master O. Henry probably had no idea how popular his Cisco Kid character would become when he wrote "The Caballero's Way" in 1904. The character turned up in silent movies, "B" movies and on television for decades to come, played by everyone from Ceasar Romero to Jimmy Smits. But the most popular interpretation has to be this 1929 version, directed by Raoul Walsh with Irving Cummings. As the Cisco Kid, Warner Baxter was so effective that he won an Oscar for Best Actor and became a big star. read more...

    Animal Kingdom (2010)

    David Michôd's Animal Kingdom opens with a frightening sequence. Joshua Cody, known as "J" (James Frecheville) watches television, while his mother slumps on the couch near him. Soon the authorities come in to remove what we learn is her dead body. "J" blankly watches them as they go about their work, but every so often his attention is absently drawn back toward the TV. read more...

    Serpico (1973)

    I'd been waiting to see this Sidney Lumet classic for years. I'd heard rumors about how raw and intense it was. But one of the most disheartening moments for the movie buff is discovering firsthand that nearly everything ever written about a certain movie is wrong. Based on a true story, Serpico takes place over the course of several years. Serpico (Al Pacino) tries to fight corruption on the police force by not taking graft money. Pacino grows lots of hair for the role, but Lumet and screenwriters Waldo Salt and Norman Wexler can't do anything but skim rapidly over the surface of their tale. Serpico comes across as a single-minded zealot with no real character, and the supporting characters -- including Serpico's two girlfriends -- never fully develop. Even at 130 minutes, the story rarely slows down long enough for anything great to happen. Fortunately, Lumet and Pacino went on to make a much better film two years later, Dog Day Afternoon. The Serpico DVD comes with a few short featurettes and a photo gallery with Lumet commentary. read more...

    Joe (2014)

    Director David Gordon Green has divided his time between broad comedies (Pineapple Express, The Sitter) and thoughtful, lyrical dramas (Snow Angels, Prince Avalanche), but this is the first time he has descended into a world as violent and as hopeless as the one in Joe. Fortunately, Green is as observant as ever, and he not only conjures up a vivid, self-contained universe, but peoples it with fascinating, damaged characters. Yet no matter how lowdown they may appear, Green seems to understand their humanity. read more...
