    Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015)

    If you're a lover of film and you own even a few film books, one of them is bound to be Francois Truffaut's extended interview with Alfred Hitchcock, first published in 1966, but updated throughout the years. Its major achievement was to elevate Hitch from a mere maker of entertainments to a Great Artist of the Cinema. Now the esteemed film critic and filmmaker (and new director of the New York Film Festival) Kent Jones brings the story of that book to the screen. It focuses less on the actual relationship between Truffaut and Hitchcock, however, than it does on Hitchcock's legacy. Jones has invited ten talented auteurs from France and the U.S.A. (and even Japan) to discuss Hitchcock's legacy and influence. (Peter Bogdanovich, in particular, knew the master of suspense and published his own interviews with him). read more...

      Get on Up (2014)

      The biopic about James Brown was only inevitable, I suppose, though it's a good thing that Chadwick Boseman landed the role of the Godfather of Soul in Get on Up. He's magnificent, and effortlessly conveys an awesome performance energy throughout the movie. (Boseman also played Jackie Robinson in last year's underrated 42.) Like nearly any major Hollywood biopic it's this centerpiece performance that drives the movie. read more...

        At Any Price (2013)

        Writer/director Ramin Bahrani has made three acclaimed, character-based independent movies (Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, and the lovely Goodbye Solo), so it's baffling that his newest, At Any Price, is so shallow and clumsy. It seems to want to say something about the plight of corn farmers in America today, and it imparts its information clearly, but apparently at the expense of everything else. read more...

        Swamp Water (1941)

        In 1940, Jean Renoir fled Nazi-occupied France and came to the United States where, typically, studio heads had no idea how to treat a master filmmaker of his ilk. His first American film, Swamp Water (1941), almost feels like the work of someone else, although it still contains a few of its maker's signature themes, and it's an excellent entertainment in any regard. Ben (Dana Andrews) ventures into the vast, deadly Okefenokee Swamp to find his lost dog, and accidentally runs into escaped fugitive and accused murderer Tom Keefer (Walter Brennan). They eventually become partners and form a trapping business, but Ben's long absences rub both his controlling father, Thursday (Walter Huston), and his fickle sweetheart (Virginia Gilmore) the wrong way. At the same time, he becomes closer to Tom's grown daughter, Julie (Anne Baxter), and begins to promise her a new life when her father returns. Meanwhile, creepy Jesse Wick (John Carradine) begins hanging around Thursday's second wife a bit too much, leading to a confrontation with Ben. Dudley Nichols wrote the screenplay (from a novel by Vereen Bell), and while he delicately balances the novel's intricate plotlines, he also imbues the movie with his trademark seriousness; in this case it works. It elevates the pulp to the level of art. Because of Nichols and because of a selection of recognizable stock players (Carradine, Ward Bond, etc.), many have said that Swamp Water seems like a John Ford film, but moments of delicate humanity, as when Ben steps into the line of fire to prove to Tom that he's really a friend, are all Renoir. read more...

          Pride (2014)

          Lately, it seems that every couple of months we get a new movie in The Full Monty mode: a sweet U.K. comedy-drama about plucky working-class folks who do something terribly out of the ordinary to save the community; in the process, several of the stuffier characters usually learn to lighten up and love life. Directed by Matthew Warchus (whose only other film is the forgotten, 15 year-old Simpatico), Pride is probably one of the better examples, leaning less toward cuteness a bit more toward earnestness. read more...
