Canyon Passage (1946)

After making his mark with three black-and-white horror masterworks under producer Val Lewton at RKO, director Jacques Tourneur went over to Universal to make this full-color Western, and the results are not quite what I expected. Canyon Passage isn't exactly dynamic, but it is at least rich in mood and texture. While it contains very few traditional Western sequences, the total of its parts still feels quite satisfying. It's based on a novel by Ernest Haycox — whose short story also provided the basis for Stagecoach — and Tourneur and screenwriter Ernest Pascal do a fine job of compressing the story's nuances into its cinematic tapestry. read more...

Holiday Affair (1949)

Though it's not widely known, Don Hartman's Holiday Affair (1949) is one the best grown-up Christmas movies ever made. The adorable Janet Leigh had one of her earliest roles as Connie Ennis, a professional comparison shopper with a young son, Timmy (Gordon Gebert, in an amazing child performance). She's a widow, whose husband died in WWII. She has a boyfriend, Carl (Wendell Corey), who has waited a long time for her to be ready to marry again, but she's never sure. She has some unresolved issues. She tells Timmy never to wish for anything he can't reasonably have. She calls her son "Mr. Ennis" and tells him how much he looks like his father; he, in turn, calls her "Mrs. Ennis." Meanwhile, Connie forces Carl to wear an apron when he helps do the dishes. read more...

Far from the Madding Crowd (2015)

The Danish director Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration, The Hunt) was previously preoccupied with cruelty and pain, but somehow his Far from the Madding Crowd — adapted from the 1874 Thomas Hardy novel — winds up as a beautifully pulsing, organic creation. This kind of movie is often a festival for costume fetishists, but here the fresh, full-blooded cinematography emphasizes natural spaces and colors, and Vinterberg is clearly more interested in the characters' emotional, romantic entanglements than in being stuffy or classy. read more...
