Belle de Jour (1967)

If Martin Scorsese's recent films have been disappointing (Cape Fear, The Age of Innocence), at least he is using his power as a filmmaker to re-release classic films to the general public. Thanks to Scorsese, Mirimax picked up the distribution rights to the "lost" classic by director Luis Buñuel (who is probably most famous for slicing up that cow eye in 1928's Un Chien Andalou). Its subject matter understandably offended some upon its initial release, but it's the best film you can see in the theaters right now. read more...

The Exterminating Angel (1962)

When Luis Buñuel released his first feature film, L'age d'Or, in 1930, it caused rioting in the streets. By 1962, he was considered a Great Filmmaker the world over. When The Exterminating Angel was released, it was hailed as a classic, even though nobody knew what it meant. read more...

Fight Club (1999)

Seeing a David Fincher film (Alien 3, Seven and The Game) is like having an electronic gizmo plugged into your brain. It goes directly to its darkest corners and sucks at your deepest fears and desires. It's an invasive experience. Yet the whole thing feels electronic somehow. I don't know how future generations will regard this pop auteur, but for now, he's just the shot of electricity the cinema needs. read more...

My Own Private Idaho (1991)

Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho was my favorite film in 1991. I saw it three times in the theater (easy, given that I worked at a movie theater and could get free passes to it). I was drawn to it perhaps the way earlier audiences might have been drawn to an outlaw film like Rebel Without a Cause. It's a mixed-up grab bag of linear storytelling and experimental techniques, with elements of Shakespeare mashed up against a totally modern story of sexualized teens. River Phoenix gives perhaps the strongest performance of his remarkable, mercurial, and tragically short career as Mike, a narcoleptic street hustler. While servicing a client, he meets Scott Favor (Keanu Reeves), a fellow hustler who belongs to a wealthy family. They begin to hang out together, and with a Falstaff-like figure. They travel, there's a betrayal, a song by the Pogues, and things drift ever onward like a road that goes all the way around the world. It's as touching a portrait of loneliness and need as was ever created in the American independent cinema. read more...
