Thank You for Smoking (2006)

Most social/political satires forget to balance character with plot, or worse, the thin jokes collapse under the pressure of an easy, likeable third-act conclusion. But the new Thank You for Smoking deftly avoids all these pitfalls, checking in as a well-rounded and hilariously direct satire. After a series of short films, writer/director Jason Reitman -- son of Ivan (Ghostbusters) Reitman -- makes his big screen debut with this story of a tobacco lobbyist, Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart). read more...

The Man in the White Suit (1951)

In Alexander Mackendrick's The Man in the White Suit (1951), Alec Guinness plays feverish inventor Sidney Stratton, working innocuous jobs in textile mills so that he can sneak into their laboratories to work on his invention: a completely stain-resistant, wear-resistant fabric. Unfortunately, instead of changing the world, he discovers that the garment industry as a whole wants to suppress his product. Mackendrick -- who later worked with Guinness in The Ladykillers and went on to make Sweet Smell of Success -- directs with a keen eye on shadows and spaces for more pronounced comic effect. read more...

Hi, Mom! (1970)

Before he strode confidently into Hitchcock territory, filmmaker Brian De Palma began his career in the late 1960s and early 1970s with a series of anti-authority satires. Hi, Mom! (1970) wasn't quite as controversial as its X-rated predecessor, Greetings (1968), but it still has a bite, even today. Robert DeNiro stars as Jon Rubin, a Vietnam vet looking to find his place in America. He gets the idea of making porno films with a voyeuristic quality, filming the residents of a neighboring apartment building from his window. read more...

Brazil (1985)

Terry Gilliam's masterful Brazil was one of the best films of the 1980s. Jonathan Pryce stars as a weasly clerk who dreams of flying with a beautiful blonde woman (Kim Greist). But in real life, he trudges through a strange, yet familiar, universe full of ineffectual machines and loads of paperwork. As Pauline Kael pointed out in her review, the film uses vertical lines more than horizontal, trapping its characters in steely cages. Robert De Niro steals a few scenes as Harry Tuttle, a renegade repairman who glides through the air on slender cables, stealing into people's apartments at night to fix malfunctioning air-conditioning units. And Michael Palin appears to lend the film some Monty Python-esque absurdity. read more...
