    A Letter to Momo (2014)

    The new anime A Letter to Momo feels like the movie that Hayao Miyazaki's final film should have been. It's a vague mix of elements from My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away, with a sweet, lost girl and a few scary, but helpful monsters. But it doesn't feel like a copy; it feels like a totally earnest and heartfelt bit of storytelling. read more...

      The Red Balloon (1956)

      This beloved children's short film, which won both an Oscar and a Palme d'Or, has enchanted people of many generations. It has very little dialogue, and it begins when a young boy, Pascal (the director's son Pascal Lamorisse), finds a large, red helium balloon on the way to school. He can't take it on the streetcar, and runs all the way to school with it. Soon he finds that the balloon will follow him, even if he lets go of the string. But of course, such a beautiful thing can't be allowed to exist and so bullies try to take the balloon away, which leads to a memorable, enchanting ending. Director Albert Lamorisse casts Paris in unbroken grays, even when it's not raining, which explains the gray track suit that poor Pascal has to wear day in and day out, even when the other kids get rain coats. The red balloon jumps out from all this dreariness, a symbol of love, trust, and/or hope. It has now become a favorite of my son's. Janus Films released the 2008 DVD, at a bargain price with no frills. read more...

        Wonderstruck (2017)

        Todd Haynes has always been a remarkably intellectual filmmaker, creating something close to poetic visual essays on subjects ranging from the social (Poison, Safe) to music (Velvet Goldmine, I'm Not There) and movies (Far from Heaven). Yet the mind never overpowers the body in his films, and they are frequently satisfying emotional experiences as well. For me, his new film Wonderstruck fits right in; like Far from Heaven, it's a great movie about movies, and about other things as well. It's based on a book by Brian Selznick, whose The Invention of Hugo Cabret provided the basis for another movie-crazy movie by the movie-crazy Martin Scorsese. read more...

        Ponyo (2009)

        The great Japanese master of animation Hayao Miyazaki has been raising the stakes on his work for years. He is best known for his gorgeous, good-hearted children's films like My Neighbor Totoro (1988), but his most recent films Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle grew more elaborate in scale, more nuanced in design and darker in spirit. The new Ponyo -- the full Japanese title translates to "Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea" -- instead dials back. The artwork appears simpler, looking more like line drawings than detailed sketches, and the story is lighter. Rather than facing fearsome demons, Ponyo is really a rather simple quest for love. read more...

        Where the Wild Things Are (2009)

        There seems to be some question as to exactly who this film is intended for. Based on Maurice Sendak's classic 1963 children's book, Where the Wild Things Are isn't exactly for children (except for the most mature children). It's also not quite mature enough for adults (except for the most arrested adults). But what I love about the film is that director Spike Jonze and co-writer Dave Eggers, as well as producer Sendak, have made a film for themselves. It's something that they themselves would perhaps like to see, and that is an all-too-rare quality in the ever-increasing business of making movies. The filmmakers are not concerned with selling "wild things" toys at fast-food restaurants; they merely have an interesting idea that they would like to try out, just to see how it looks. read more...
