School Daze (1988)

Spike Lee's second feature School Daze was considered something of a classic "sophomore slump," neither as focused as his debut She's Gotta Have It (1986), nor as accomplished as his next film, Do the Right Thing (1989). It's a mess, going all over the place while tackling a wide array of themes for over two hours, with tons of characters, and even musical numbers. It also, unfortunately, looks like it's going to be a comedy, even though it's really not very funny. On the other hand, it is smart and vibrant and it's well worth seeing, even decades later. read more...

Jayne Mansfield's Car (2013)

Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade) returns to writing and directing after a bit of a hiatus, and though the result, Jayne Mansfield's Car, is often downbeat and meandering, it's also thoughtful and effective. read more...

Elle (2016)

I haven't seen a Paul Verhoeven movie since he made a bid for respectability with his very accomplished war film Black Book, which was released in the U.S. in 2007. But now he's back with Elle, which is the kind of psycho-sexual thriller — a la Basic Instinct — that made him famous. However, he's smart; he's made this one in French, so that, rather than protests in the streets, he will likely get applause and awards. read more...

Pawn Sacrifice (2015)

Director Edward Zwick is pretty much an invention of the movie business. Ever since the inception of the Oscars, studios have divided their investments between movies that will hopefully make money, and movies that will hopefully make them look good. Oftentimes a genuinely great filmmaker will make a genuinely great film that actually gets noticed, but just in case, directors like Zwick are needed. Whereas a genuinely great director makes a great film from his soul, Zwick makes films based on what other great films might look like. However, his new movie, Pawn Sacrifice, somehow feels more like a struggle than a statement, and it's arguably his best movie in a couple of decades. read more...

    Fool for Love (1985)

    Robert Altman passed most of the 1980s adapting plays to the screen, and didn't exactly make waves with his efforts. Made for Cannon Films and based on a work by Sam Shepard, Fool for Love isn't one of his best from this period, but it's far from the worst. A run-down Kim Basinger stars as May, who lives in a dusty roadside motel. Cowboy Eddie (Shepard) shows up with rifles, horses, and a bottle of booze. He has some kind of longstanding relationship with May, and he has come to make trouble. May is trying to hide from him. In a marvel of bad timing, she has a date that night, with Martin (Randy Quaid), who must contend with the charming, volatile Eddie. Meanwhile, an old man (Harry Dean Stanton) lingers in the edges of the story, sometimes commenting on what's going on; he also has a mysterious relationship with the characters. It's a little on the cool side, but Altman's loose, observant direction allows for some depth of character, as well as an off-kilter tension, achieved through his brilliant use of framing and desert-flower colors. This movie proves that, even with tough, unyielding material, he was a master. Kino Lorber released it on Blu-ray in 2021. Bonuses include a featurette, and trailers. read more...
