The Two Faces of January (2014)

Author Patricia Highsmith's books have made some very good films, including Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train (1951), Rene Clement's Purple Noon (1960), Wim Wenders' The American Friend (1977), Claude Chabrol's The Cry of the Owl (1987), and Liliana Cavani's Ripley's Game (2002). By far the most popular one, though, is Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), which is also the weakest of the batch. Now comes Hossein Amini's The Two Faces of January, which clearly comes closer to the Minghella film than to the others, probably for commercial reasons, but also likely because the late Minghella's estate was crucial in getting the movie made. read more...

Twisted (2004)

Years from now some enterprising college student will craft a thesis on "Ashley Judd's Thrillers," beginning with 1995's Kiss the Girls -- or possibly Michael Mann's Heat from the same year -- and focusing on psychological violence as it affects women, or San Francisco as a milieu, or what have you. But it's fairly clear even now that Philip Kaufman's new film Twisted will be the richest and most interesting from among the candidates. read more...

Prime Cut (1972)

Certainly one of the more bizarre movies made in Hollywood in the 1970s, Prime Cut stars Lee Marvin as Nick Devlin, a Chicago debt collector for hire. After the last guy was ground up into sausage, Nick gets the job of collecting money from "Mary Ann" (Gene Hackman), the vicious owner and operator of a Kansas slaughterhouse. When Nick arrives, he discovers that Mary Ann is also operating a female slave ring, and he rescues a pretty girl named "Poppy" (Sissy Spacek). Then we await the bloody showdown, but in the meantime we get a pretty good chase-and-escape scene with Nick and Poppy running through a wheat field chased by a combine, blades a-whirling. Gregory Walcott co-stars as Mary Ann's brother "Weenie," who occasionally munches on hot dogs he carries in his pocket. The movie was directed by Michael Ritchie, whose own career was pretty strange, but included The Bad News Bears (1976), Fletch (1985), and The Golden Child (1986). Kino Lorber released Prime Cut on Blu-ray in 2015, which includes only a trailer. read more...

The Ninth Gate (2000)

The Ninth Gate is the first film from legendary director Roman Polanski since his double-whammy in 1994, Bitter Moon and Death and the Maiden. Those two films left us believing that the exiled filmmaker may still have the right stuff. After all, this is the guy who gave us Repulsion (1965), Rosemary's Baby (1968), andChinatown (1974). But after a strong start, The Ninth Gate disintegrates into Pirates (1985) territory. read more...

    The Square (2010)

    Raymond (David Roberts) is a supervisor on a construction site. He's married, but having an affair with the pretty Carla (Claire van der Boom), who lives across the way. Carla is married to a loutish thug, Smithy (Anthony Hayes), who, for some reason, has a pile of cash lying around the house. Carla approaches Raymond with the notion of stealing some of the cash, and using it to escape and build a new life for themselves. Raymond balks, but for Carla, it's the money or nothing, and so Raymond reluctantly agrees; to make the theft look convincing, he hires an arsonist (Joel Edgerton) to make it look as if all the loot has burned. read more...
