Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013)

Director Abdellatif Kechiche, who was born in Tunisia and raised in France, made one of the most highly acclaimed movies of the last decade there, The Secret of the Grain (2007). It was a slow-paced, thoughtful movie that took time to watch scenes unfold and especially had a love for the pleasures of food. read more...

Fallen Angels (1995)

Wong Kar-wai's most stylistically dense film (and my favorite), Fallen Angels, is said to be an unofficial sequel -- or at least a companion piece -- to Chungking Express, a third chapter for that film that didn't quite fit. It, too, follows a series of lost, sad characters who can't ever seem to relate. 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...

L'eclisse (1962)

Seeing Michelangelo Antonioni's L'Eclisse (a.k.a. "Eclipse") a second time (on HuluPlus) has convinced me that it's the director's best film, and therefore the best Italian movie ever made. During this time Antonioni was as radical as they come, changing the way that people saw movies and opening up a world of new possibilities. His framing in this movie is far more subtle and intricate than in L'Avventura, as great as that film is. A rainbarrel, for example, shown in a few shots, becomes a profoundly moving device for describing a relationship. read more...
