Young Mr. Lincoln (1939)

Young Mr. Lincoln is one of John Ford's most perfectly realized works, an effortless jelling of his bawdy sense of humor, his patriotism, his mythical sense of history and his gorgeous, cinematic poetry. Henry Fonda gives a terrific, canny performance (with a prosthetic nose and chin) as Lincoln, stuck at a crossroads between practicing politics and law. read more...

Moneyball (2011)

We already have lots of inspirational sports movies, many of them based on true stories. There's even a successful formula in place, used to mold the stories into a traditional three-act Hollywood structure. The new Moneyball has all of that, but more -- so much more. Director Bennett Miller makes this movie pulse. It avoids a kind of historical importance, or looking back with a godlike omniscience, and somehow makes it seem as if it's a great story, just happening. read more...

Red River (1948)

It can be argued that John Wayne's best performance is in John Ford's The Searchers. In it, he plays uncle Ethan, who returns home from the war, only to find his home attacked by Indians and his niece kidnapped. He becomes obsessed with finding her, even though it takes years. We can see obsessions boiling beneath his surface, and can tell that it has a lot more to do with just his niece. But in Red River, his character, Thomas Dunson, is equally obsessed, first with driving cattle to California, then with catching up with and killing his surrogate son, Matt Garth (Montgomery Clift). Here he is hell-bent with fury in his eyes. "Aging" 20 years over the course of the film, it's a more exterior performance, but equal in precision and power. Maybe both performances are great, but Red River is the better film. read more...

War Horse (2011)

Released the same week as his triumphant new The Adventures of Tintin, Steven Spielberg's War Horse is, on the other hand, his most so-so work in some time. Spielberg has spent his career juggling popcorn movies and "serious" movies, or to put it another way, kid movies and adult movies. War Horse is stuck in the middle. It comes from a "young adult" novel, and was adapted into a stage play. It's not quite a kids' movie and not quite an adult movie. read more...
