The Baron of Arizona (1950)

When Fuller based a movie on a true story, he made sure it was a doozy. The Baron of Arizona (1950) tells the story of James Addison Reavis (Vincent Price) who went to extraordinary lengths, forging documents and ancient texts and building stone markers, to claim the land rights to the entire Arizona territory. read more...

Panic in the Streets (1950)

Elia Kazan had already established his Oscar-friendly formula of social commentary, winning Best Picture for Gentleman's Agreement, when he doubled back and made this intense film noir; it, too, uses social commentary but it's so expertly folded into the story, and so gripping, that it succeeds as both art and entertainment. Richard Widmark stars in Panic in the Streets as Lieutenant Commander Clinton Reed, who works for the U.S. Public Health Service. We first meet him at home on a rare day off, attempting to teach his son how to paint (the son knows better than the dad does), and then briefly conversing about an overdue bill with his wife, Nancy (Barbara Bel Geddes). The phone rings, and something is up. It looks like it could be a case of pneumonic plague, which could quickly be spread across New Orleans, and possibly the rest of the country. Reed and police captain Tom Warren (Paul Douglas) must find the carrier at all costs. Jack Palance makes his film debut as a scary thug, Blackie, with sniveling Zero Mostel as his number one toadie. The script includes some realistic arguments about whether or not to believe Reed about what's going on, a fear-versus-logic argument that carries over today to things like the climate crisis. But mostly Kazan captures a shockingly realistic cityscape, using all kinds of concrete nooks and crannies, made all the more threatening with the fact that the characters are working without sleep. Though the movie was a box office disappointment, the story, by married couple Edna and Edward Anhalt, won an Oscar (it was the only nomination the film received). read more...

Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)

Sicario: Day of the Soldado — the follow-up to 2015's Sicario — is rather unexpected for a sequel. It's a pessimistic, grownup film, and not exactly pop entertainment. read more...

The Set-Up (1949)

Director Robert Wise had as good a beginning as anyone, editing Orson Welles' first two projects at RKO (Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons), then becoming a director for that studio's genius "B"-unit producer Val Lewton, helming Curse of the Cat People, Mademoiselle Fifi and The Body Snatcher. read more...

    Red Rock West (1992)

    Red Rock West was an exciting event for us San Franciscans, because our Roxie Cinema was solely responsible for its success. The movie, made in 1992 and starring Dennis Hopper, Nicolas Cage and Lara Flynn Boyle had already gone straight to video when the Roxie began playing it in an unlimited run in 1994. It was so successful that other theaters picked it up too. It's a brilliant movie that seems to understand the inner workings of film noir, rather than just paying tribute to it. Cage plays a man looking for a job, who is mistaken for a hitman. He visits his supposed target (Boyle), but finds himself attracted to her instead. To complicate matters, the real hitman (Hopper) also turns up. J.T. Walsh plays the man who wants his wife whacked. Dahl's equally good The Last Seduction was rescued from cable and released in theaters later that same year. read more...
