99 Homes (2015)

The acclaimed indie filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo), who regularly and bravely focuses on heartbreaking trials of life while keeping his stories rooted in humanity, turns in some of his finest work. A work of great power and subtlety, 99 Homes manages to talk about one of today's most pressing and troubling issues without getting preachy or overbearing. At the same time, the movie borrows the classical structure of the Faust story, but still manages to feel immediate and relevant. read more...

The Circle (2000)

Just a few weeks ago, the Shooting Gallery film series released Marziyeh Meshkini's and Mohsen Makhmalbaf's The Day I Became a Woman. I was afraid then that no one would see that beautiful and vibrant film because it seemed to be about "battered Iranian women," though it was really about their breathtaking attempts to escape domination. Now comes Jafar Panahi's The Circle, a far more heavyweight, but equally brilliant film about women whose escape seems unlikely. read more...

Embrace of the Serpent (2016)

One of the 2015 nominees for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award, Ciro Guerre's Embrace of the Serpent — from Colombia — never stood a chance of winning, but it's a beautiful, stirring, and thoughtful film, well worth seeing. It's set during two time periods, both of which feature the character Karamakate, a shaman in the Amazon jungle, the last of his people. In 1909, young Karamakate (Nilbio Torres) reluctantly agrees to help a sick white man, German explorer Theo (Jan Bijvoet) and his faithful guide Manduca (Miguel Dionisio Ramos), find a special flower that could heal him. Years later, an elderly, and forgetful Karamakate (Antonio Bolivar) meets another white man, an English botanist, Evans (Brionne Davis), who is also in search of the plant. Shot in black-and-white, the mesmerizing movie could easily have fallen into peaching or relied on liberal guilt, but instead it builds a complex character out of Karamakate, who is wise and righteous as well as outraged and untrusting. It's a respectful, poetic movie, and highly recommended. 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...

Through a Glass Darkly (1961)

After the worldwide success of The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries, the very hot Ingmar Bergman turned to a trio of films to try to ask some complicated questions about religion and faith. The results are Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Winter Light (1962) and The Silence (1963), and each is better than the one before. read more...
