The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble (2016)

Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom, Best of Enemies, Keith Richards: Under the Influence) directs this story of Yo-Yo Ma's celebrated but once-controversial band. Ma started the Silk Road Ensemble in 2000 after hitting something of a mid-life crisis; he had been a child prodigy, famous since the age of 7, and wanted to do something more significant. He assembled international musicians like Chinese pipa master Wu Man, Damascus-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, Iranian-born kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor, and Galacian bagpiper Cristina Pato (the band is much bigger, and members rotate in and out, but the film focuses on this handful). Critics initially balked, calling it watered-down music, a betrayal of each individual culture, but eventually the music itself won out. Neville looks at cultural barriers, both sturdy and broken, around the musicians, and tries to find a balance between the joyous music itself and the explanation of where the music comes from and what it means. The result is enjoyable, but feels perhaps a bit slight, as if, with a little more time, more depth may have been achieved. read more...

    The River (1951)

    If Jean Renoir's The River were released today, critics would complain about the awkward performances and the meandering plot, and the stretches where a female narrator, apparently reading from Rumer Godden's novel, tells us all about the daily goings-on on and around the Ganges River. But as I watched the movie for the first time since college, I realized that these things are all part of a whole, part of a specific flow. It's not too much of a stretch to say that the movie itself flows like a river, with currents and eddies, and no particular starting point or stopping point. Things happen in The River, good things and bad things, but life always goes on. read more...

    Himalaya (2001)

    Himalaya may seem like an exotic look at a strange culture and its yearly ritual of carrying salt over a mountain, but it's really just a mediocre Hollywood adventure wrapped up in a striking package. read more...

      Big Eyes (2014)

      The current movie season has been riddled with true stories and biographies, most of them treated with seriousness and reverence in anticipation of award glory. Tim Burton's Big Eyes, a biopic of painter Margaret Keane, separates itself from the pack in a prickly, delightful way. read more...

      Mr. Holmes (2015)

      After a pair of Twilight movies, director Bill Condon returns to the territory of his best movie Gods and Monsters with this thoughtful, low-key movie about the mysteries of memory and storytelling. Mr. Holmes may disappoint viewers by not actually being a Sherlock Holmes mystery (nor is it an explosion movie like Guy Ritche's Sherlock Holmes), but it's a great movie, an absolutely brilliant rumination on the delicate nature of human memory and the way we need to tell stories, not just for entertainment, but to live. read more...
