    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...

      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...

          Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013)

          Nelson Mandela deserves a great movie about his life, and though actor Idris Elba does an admirable job capturing the man's spirit throughout many years, this particular movie is rather poor. It hits only highlights, going over important events like a checklist, without ever digging very deep. These moments come across as if they were merely fated to be, rather than occurring dramatically or naturally. read more...

          Twilight (1998)

          This film by Academy Award winning writer and director Robert Benton could be the first great movie of 1998. It makes a wonderful companion piece to his 1977 The Late Show, a well-balanced mix of detective movie, comedy and drama. The two movies are similar in that they are interested in characters that have already been around the block and are drifting through their final days. Benton's characters try not to think too hard about where they are -- and try not to think about not thinking -- but they fail at both. read more...
