Pawn Sacrifice

    X

    Fences (2016)

    For his third time out as director, Denzel Washington adapts August Wilson's 1987 play, which he performed on Broadway in 2010. It's a prestigious production, with Wilson — who died in 2005 — getting sole screenwriting credit, and with the play's Tony awards and Pulitzer Prizes hovering over everything. Yet, when it begins, it quickly creates a vivid, interior world of garbage collector Troy Maxson (Washington). read more...

      The Falcon and the Snowman (1985)

      John Schlesinger's The Falcon and the Snowman tells the gripping true story of Christopher Boyce and Andrew Daulton Lee, who met as altar boys and who were eventually arrested for selling classified information to the Soviet Union. Unlike many true stories, Schlesinger and screenwriter Steven Zaillian focus on details, character, and atmosphere. They manage to capture the slow arc in which two American guys, from wealthy families, could somehow justify doing what they did. read more...

        Kill the Messenger (2014)

        Michael Cuesta's Kill the Messenger takes on dense material, and for the most part makes it feel important without feeling heavy or overstuffed. First, it provides a biographical portrait of reporter Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner), who wrote for the San Jose Mercury News and committed suicide in 2004. Second, it chronicles Webb's biggest story, published in 1996, asserting that, in the 1980s, the CIA used profits from crack cocaine sold on the streets of Los Angeles to back the Contras in the war in Nicaragua. Third, it follows Webb's downfall, not at the hands of the CIA, but at the hands of other journalists. read more...

          A Most Violent Year (2014)

          Plenty of today's filmmakers are in awe of the American movie renaissance of the 1970s, a period that began roughly at the end of the 1960s, with Bonnie and Clyde and Easy Rider, and ended at the end of the 1970s, with Star Wars and Raging Bull. It was a time that older studio executives conceded that they didn't know what they were doing, realized that the youth market was the way to go, and hired fresh, young directors (Scorsese, Schrader, Coppola, De Palma, Bogdanovich, Spielberg, Lucas, Friedkin, Malick, Altman, etc.) to do their thing. These directors had plenty of control and could take plenty of risks. Movies tended to be gritty and character-driven, and even allowed for certain experimentation. read more...

          Crossfire (1947)

          After Billy Wilder's Double Indemnity, Edward Dmytryk's Crossfire was the only 1940s-era film noir to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, and the reason is clear. Not because it's better than any other noir, but because it has a very strong and powerful message against anti-Semitism. read more...
