Lorenzo's Oil (1992)

Filmmaker George Miller may be best known for his Mad Max films, but it should be known that he's also a doctor, and, more so than many other action directors, tends to show great compassion in his works. His Lorenzo's Oil sounds like one of those movies you don't want to see, a disease-of-the-week weepie released at Oscar time, but he brings an incredible, surprising amount of kinetic energy to the story (a brief nightmare sequence may remind you of Mad Max), as well as a genuine emotional depth. read more...

Short Term 12 (2013)

"I've always wanted to work with underprivileged kids," says the new counselor at the foster care facility Short Term 12, and he immediately realizes he has made a faux pas. The oldest kid, Marcus (Keith Stanfield) reacts indignantly, and not without reason. And we, too, are with him. These are not underprivileged kids... just kids who never had anyone to listen to them. read more...

Hoosiers (1986)

More than any other sports movie, Hoosiers milks the "David vs. Goliath" thing nearly to death and still gets away with it. Barely a single frame of this movie is less than compelling. Perhaps that's because of Gene Hackman's brilliant performance as the blacklisted coach who takes the only job he can get -- on a flyspeck team in the middle of cornpatch, Indiana. Director David Anspaugh keeps the basketball scenes exciting and gets creditable performances out of Barbara Hershey and Dennis Hopper in supporting roles. read more...

Reign Over Me (2007)

Back in the 1940s and 50s there existed a genre called the "family melodrama" or the "women's weepie." Practitioners like Douglas Sirk and Vincente Minnelli found ways to express complex emotions that couldn't be openly discussed and did so through deceptively commonplace visual means, shadows and light, furniture arrangement, and dramatic angles. Nowadays, everything can be discussed and usually is discussed. Filmmakers like Mike Binder (The Upside of Anger) must compensate by writing intelligent screenplays, with fully fleshed-out characters, which oddly enough makes things both simpler and more complicated. read more...

Imitation of Life (1959)

Douglas Sirk's best-known movie was a huge hit in its day, but was probably not considered the masterpiece it is today. On the surface it's a very effective weepie, telling the story of two single mothers and their troubled, troublesome daughters. Lana Turner plays Lora Meredith, an actress with big dreams of Broadway stardom. She claims to have morals, but she also lies to get work. One day at the beach, she loses her daughter Susie. An unemployed black maid, Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), finds her. Annie has a light-skinned daughter, Sarah Jane, and Lora assumes that Annie is merely her nanny, rather than her mother. Annie offers her services for next to nothing, and Lora eventually agrees. read more...
