Tabu (2012)

Portuguese director Miguel Gomes last played around with narrative and presentation in Our Beloved Month of August, starting his movie about a failed attempt to film a huge screenplay, turning into a documentary-like film, and then slowly morphing back into a fictional tale of romance. His movie Tabu takes similar liberties with time, place and reality, to powerful effect. read more...

Breaking the Waves (1996)

I'm not an expert on Lars von Trier's Breaking the Waves. That honor belongs to my friend, and a great ex-film critic, Rob Blackwelder, who saw the film some dozen times and considers it to be the greatest film he's ever seen. (You can read Rob's original review here.) I've only seen it once, and I don't think I ever need to see it again, but I would concur that it is indeed an outstanding film. It's one of von Trier's best and purest expressions of his disturbed psyche. It's cruel, but also humane; it's depressing, but also spiritually uplifting. read more...

As Tears Go By (1988)

Wong Kar-wai's feature debut As Tears Go By features the gorgeous Maggie Cheung in her first serious role. It finally convinced a generation of Hong Kong movie fans that she could really act, and not just play Jackie Chan's airhead girlfriend (Project A II, Supercop: Police Story III). Coming in the middle of the HK New Wave, and telling yet another Triad gangster story, it doesn't distinguish itself as a great debut. Yet it's an excellent film, fluid in its use of color, slow motion and other flashy techniques, combined with street realism. Andy Lau plays a tough guy who is saddled with a loose-cannon "younger brother" who continually gets himself into trouble. Lau becomes torn between his loyalty toward his friend and his love for his naïve country cousin (Cheung). read more...

Prick Up Your Ears (1987)

Stephen Frears' Prick Up Your Ears is still one of the better examples of a filmed biopic, focusing on one dramatic aspect of a famous person's life, rather than a cradle-to-grave compressing of an entire existence. Rebellious, swaggering playwright Joe Orton (Gary Oldman) shocked audiences with his plays during his brief 34 years, but this movie focuses mainly on his long-term relationship with Kenneth Halliwell (Alfred Molina), who was seemingly his polar opposite, fastidious and dissatisfied. (Both performances are excellent.) Orton did what he wanted, and took lovers on the side, but he and Kenneth lived together, fought, and were seemingly inseparable. Screenwriter Alan Bennett and director Frears don't shy away from the domestic details (rare and courageous, I might add, for 1987), and they create a vivid, prickly, and sometimes funny relationship. Wallace Shawn plays a present day writer who is researching Orton after his death, and Vanessa Redgrave plays Orton's agent. On their TV show, Siskel and Ebert both chose this as one of the year's ten best films. Olive Films released it on Blu-ray in 2015. read more...

The Woman on the Beach (1947)

This was the fifth and final film Jean Renoir made in English during his Hollywood sojourn, after Swamp Water (1941), This Land Is Mine (1943), The Southerner (1945), and Diary of a Chambermaid (1946); unfortunately, it was also the film that hastened his departure. According to some reports, Renoir screened a cut for an audience in Santa Barbara, which snickered all the way through. He then frantically and recklessly re-shot and re-edited, and wound up with the 71-minute cut that exists today (the excised footage is apparently no longer around). read more...
