21 Grams (2003)

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu may be the most talented Quentin Tarantino knockoff around. His accomplished feature debut Amores Perros borrowed the twisted three-act structure from Pulp Fiction and even clocked in at about the same running time. Inarritu nurses the same taste for shocking violence and unexpected turns in storylines. And, like Tarantino, he follows the least expected character into a completely unexpected new arena. read more...

Coriolanus (2011)

Like Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, and Kenneth Branagh before him, Ralph Fiennes now takes on the daunting duty of directing and performing in a big screen Shakespeare adaptation. Even more daring, he tackles one of Shakespeare's lesser-known works, Coriolanus, and then adapts it to modern times, using guns, war, and CNN-style TV coverage. It all works extremely well -- with the exception of the ugly hand-held cinematography designed to make the war footage look more chaotic, but instead only looks jerky.

When Caius Martius Coriolanus (Ralph Fiennes) returns home from the war, he is treated as a hero, though he doesn't feel like one. Nonetheless, he reluctantly agrees to run for Roman consul. Two tribunes, Brutus (Paul Jesson) and Sicinius (James Nesbitt) denounce him and encourage the Romans to cast him out. Left with nothing, Coriolanus joins forces with his greatest enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) and plans an attack on Rome. After Menenius (Brian Cox) fails to coax him home, Coriolanus' aged mother (Vanessa Redgrave), his pretty wife (Jessica Chastain) and young son (Harry Fenn) brave the dangers of the front lines to try and appeal to Coriolanus' humanity -- and hopefully save Rome.

Oddly, the dialogue fits well into the modern setting, and the TV pundits sound perfectly natural. Even the questionable casting of Gerard Butler pays off, as he plays the bloodthirsty bad guy with all the arrogance and gusto he usually brings to his heroic roles. Fiennes is especially magnetic, though he can't keep his scenes from being stolen by the magnificent Vanessa Redgrave; For her, it's a crowning achievement in an already great career.

    Rosewater (2014)

    Jon Stewart, of "The Daily Show," makes his directing debut with Rosewater, a movie about an imprisoned journalist (Gael Garcia Bernal) in Iran. But despite Stewart's comedy background, the movie gives over maybe 2% of its running time to mild chuckles. The rest is serious. What could have been an effective grilling of politics is now an "issue" movie. read more...

      Go for Sisters (2013)

      The name John Sayles should be legend in movie circles. He has been an independent, uncompromising filmmaker for 33 years, making adult dramas about the gray areas of life. (Although he does pay the rent by selling his services as a Hollywood screenwriter and script doctor.) Go for Sisters is his latest, his eighteenth overall, and despite a lone Independent Spirit Award nomination, it seems destined to fade into this awards season unnoticed. read more...

        The President (2016)

        The Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf is considered one of the practitioners of the Iranian New Wave of the 1980s and 1990s, along with his late colleague Abbas Kiarostami. (Makhmalbaf figured prominently in Kiarostami's great masterpiece Close-Up.) Makhmalbaf's films were among the first Iranian films to be distributed in the United States, starting with his beautiful Gabbeh (1996) and his great A Moment of Innocence (1996). He has been heavily involved in helping younger filmmakers, and has even shepherded films by his wife Marziyeh Meshkini (The Day I Became a Woman) and daughter Samira (The Apple, Blackboards). In 2001, he directed the astounding, and amazingly timely Kandahar, set in Afghanistan. read more...
