Down in the Delta (1998)

It's hard to imagine poet/actress/author Maya Angelou, on top of all her many other achievements, saying, "you know, what I really want to do is direct." Yet direct she does, and makes a fine job of it with Down in the Delta, starring Alfre Woodard and Wesley Snipes. At first glance, Down in the Delta may seem like a TV-disease-of-the-week movie and I was not thrilled about having to see it. But, sitting there in the dark, I became tremendously moved by the movie, and I have not forgotten its power. read more...

The Judge (2014)

The Judge is about as lightweight as a Hollywood drama can get; its plot is fairly vanilla, everything is predictable, and the music cues come in at just the right time to remind us that it's only a movie. But I like it very much, for two reasons. One is that it features extremely strong performances by its two leads, Robert Downey Jr., and Robert Duvall. These two guys are among the heavyweights of today, and it's a real pleasure to watch them work. The second reason is that director David Dobkin allows just a little extra space for the characters to stretch out, go a little deeper. Even while the lumpy pot awaits them around the next turn, they have a couple of minutes here and there to laugh, cry, scream, yell, hide things, reveal things, joke around, and fall in love. read more...

Tokyo Godfathers (2003)

Director Satoshi Kon last year moved anime in a new direction with his amazing Millennium Actress. Telling the story of an aging movie star, he avoided the usual post-apocalyptic anime clich├ęs and invented a whole slew of new ones. Unfortunately, some clunky artwork kept the film from truly succeeding. read more...

Lorenzo's Oil (1992)

Filmmaker George Miller may be best known for his Mad Max films, but it should be known that he's also a doctor, and, more so than many other action directors, tends to show great compassion in his works. His Lorenzo's Oil sounds like one of those movies you don't want to see, a disease-of-the-week weepie released at Oscar time, but he brings an incredible, surprising amount of kinetic energy to the story (a brief nightmare sequence may remind you of Mad Max), as well as a genuine emotional depth. read more...
