The Immortal Story (1968)

I first saw Orson Welles' The Immortal Story on arguably the most horrendous bootleg cassette in history; it was bleached, washed out, cropped, the works. Seeing it again on the 2016 Criterion Collection Blu-ray is like being able to see for the first time. The movie, originally shot for French television, looks better than I could have guessed, and in retrospect, it stands up with Welles' best films. read more...

Band of Outsiders (1964)

Here's a confession for you; I used to hate Jean-Luc Godard. I thought he was the most pretentious, dunderheaded filmmaker of all time. I mean, what's up with showing only the backs of everyone's heads in Vivre sa vie (1962), for Pete's sake? But little did I know I was already on the path of learning to appreciate, love, and cherish Godard. read more...

Vivre sa vie (1962)

Andrew Sarris had the same feeling back in 1963, when he reviewed Vivre sa vie. Sarris first complained that Godard had made five films in France, but Vivre sa vie was only the second to open in the United States. (The first was À bout de souffle, otherwise known as Breathless, Godard's feature debut and still his most famous film.) Then he went on to mention that he hadn't quite got the newer film, but that Godard's films tend to age well and reward multiple viewings. It was a prophetic review, as Vivre sa vie has indeed aged well and rewarded the persistent, and it stacks up against Godard's greatest masterpieces. read more...

The Battle of Algiers (1965)

On Sept. 11, 2001 I had two things on my schedule, one was a press conference for the Mill Valley Film Festival, which was cancelled, and the other was a screening of Gillo Pontecorvo's The Wide Blue Road (1957), which was not. "We won't let Osama shut us down," boasted the folks at the Roxie Cinema, who later premiered the revival of Pontecorvo's Technicolor story of life in a fishing village. It's perhaps appropriate that another Pontecorvo film -- the great The Battle of Algiers -- should be re-released in this post-9/11 world, a startling and still-potent view of the double standard of war. read more...

Mr. Arkadin (1955)

Of the thirteen finished, released films that Orson Welles directed, only two were written directly for the screen and not based on any other material, Citizen Kane and Mr. Arkadin. Many critics have noticed the connection between the two: a flashback structure, a third party snooping around in the past life of a great figure. But the two films are markedly different. Mr. Arkadin (a.k.a. Confidential Report) is pulpier and more deliberately flashy, and at the same time it suffers badly from its technical shortcomings. The sound is horrid, and the film stock on even the best prints makes sickening jumps with each edit. And yet it's still a spectacular film, a complete and total Orson Welles film with his unique fingerprints all over it. I wouldn't swap it for a dozen other films. read more...
