12 Years a Slave (2013)

Steve McQueen is a brilliant person and a fascinating artist. He approaches filmmaking patiently, taking time to explore certain individual scenes. He's also very serious. Never has a smile or a moment of levity cracked through a single second of a McQueen film. Thus, his films require a delicate balance. read more...

Deliver Us from Evil (2006)

Amy Berg's Oscar-nominated documentary tells the story of Catholic priest Father Oliver O'Grady, who, each time he was caught molesting children, was moved by the Church to some other small town. This grim territory was already well covered in films like Kirby Dick's Twist of Faith (2004). But where Deliver Us from Evil succeeds is in its canny psychological profile of the Catholic Church, and how its history feeds into its current psychosis. It's shocking and revealing to hear how the current problem and all its emotional suffering is the result of sheer greed. By getting to the root of the problem, Berg moves beyond a mere exposé and into something more profoundly useful. read more...

Secret Honor (1984)

In 1980, Robert Altman suffered a giant financial flop with Popeye. This came after a decade of brilliant artistic success in a Hollywood that cared for such things. But in 1980, the blockbuster system was budding, and the powers that be only cared for cash. And so Altman retreated into what is now considered his "low" period. He worked steadily, but making low-profile films and TV movies based on plays with small, unobtrusive casts and crews. read more...

    The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015)

    A movie about the real-life 1971 Stanford prison experiment could have been sadistic and unwatchable, director Kyle Patrick Alvarez's clinical approach focuses on realism and psychological drama rather than on thrills. Alvarez doesn't try to professionally polish the prison setting; instead it has a functional, homemade look that makes it feel more immediate. The way the characters wear their hair and clothes, and they way they carry themselves contributes to what feels like an authentic period piece. read more...

    Grizzly Man (2005)

    Werner Herzog's mad quest for truth of vision has over the years perfectly adapted itself from his insane jungle epics with Klaus Kinski to the documentary format. This year, three Herzog documentaries have opened: The White Diamond, about the attempt to fly an experimental airship over a waterfall, Wheel of Time, about the Dalai Lama and an annual Buddhist gathering, and this one, about Timothy Treadwell and his efforts to study and protect Alaskan grizzly bears. read more...
