Carlito's Way (1993)

I admit that it took me two viewings of this movie, several years apart, to fully grasp its greatness. Indeed, most Americans have never appreciated it, though the French critics at Cahiers du Cinema named it the best movie of the 1990s (tied with Hou Hsiao-hsien's Goodbye South, Goodbye and Clint Eastwood's The Bridges of Madison County).Time has only confirmed it, however, and it now emerges as one of director Brian De Palma's best. read more...

Welcome to the Punch (2013)

Writer/director Eran Creevy seems to have put a great deal of work into his mystery story Welcome to the Punch, doling out clues at certain spots and piecing it all together at the climax, but what really registers in this movie is the chase stuff, and the high intensity with which it all plays out. Even a typical conversation, a simple exchange of information, occurs in places like a murder scene at night. read more...

City of God (2002)

Magic tricks -- conjuring up a dove or making a woman levitate -- only work depending on the presentation. But sometimes even a first-class presentation won't disguise the fact that the tricks are old and have been done before. read more...

Infernal Affairs (2002)

This intense, explosive Hong Kong thriller ushers in a new era of hyper-intelligent action, displacing the genre's once-prevalent balletic violence, originally pioneered by John Woo. Infernal Affairs (2002) became the highest-grossing film in the country's history, quickly beating out Stephen Chow's Shaolin Soccer and spawning two sequels before Americans even knew of its existence. Tony Leung plays a cop who goes undercover, working for a triad boss, while Andy Lau plays a triad gangster who becomes a mole in the police department. Neither knows the other's identity, and each is assigned to find the other. read more...

Blow Out (1981)

I often have a hard time defending my admiration for Brian De Palma. In this country he's considered a rip-off artist who pillages from Hitchcock, Kubrick, Antonioni and Michael Powell, as well as a misogynist and a violent creep. It gets especially difficult when discussing such obvious turkeys as The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990) and last year's Mission to Mars. But in France he's considered a genius, a visual stylist of the first degree (the influential magazine Cahiers du Cinema voted his film Carlito's Way the best film of the 1990s). read more...
