Rebels of the Neon God (1992)

Over the past few decades, Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang has made some of the strangest and most fascinating films in the world, including The River (1997), What Time Is It There? (2001), and Goodbye Dragon Inn (2004). But for whatever reason, his debut feature, Rebels of the Neon God (1992), has never been released in the United States until now. A 2015 restoration, part of a retrospective of Tsai's work, has been making its way around the country. For Tsai's fans, it's both happily familiar and slightly disappointing; it shows the director already tackling some of his favorite themes, but also not yet fully-formed. Yet for fans of arthouse cinema, it's easily the most interesting thing to come along in some time. read more...

24 Frames (2018)

My adoration for the work of Abbas Kiarostami started shortly after I became a film critic and attended a screening of Taste of Cherry. The movie fascinated me while it perturbed many others, and I began researching and trying to see as many Iranian movies as I could. I found many talented filmmakers, but Kiarostami's work rose to the top, especially his "earthquake trilogy" (Where Is the Friend's Home?; Life and Nothing More, and Through the Olive Trees) and the masterpiece Close-Up. I was enthralled by his use of individuals in uncertain landscapes, either in cars, or on roads. read more...

Leviathan (2013)

Technically it's a documentary about fishing trawler outside of New Bedford, Massachusetts, but Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel's Leviathan is more of an experimental film, strapping a dozen or so cameras to the ship's nets and chains and achieving something of an immersive, voyeuristic experience. The camera dips in and out of the ocean, sits at deck level as caught, dead fish slosh back and forth in leftover water, and watches as fishermen dutifully cut the good bits from the fish and kick the rest back into the ocean. read more...

Knight of Cups (2016)

Terrence Malick is arguably one of the great current filmmakers, and while this, his first contemporary big city drama, is dreamy and lovely, it may try the patience of even his most ardent admirers. It's more experimental, and has even less plot, than Malick's other movies (Days of Heaven, The New World, The Tree of Life, etc.), and despite chapter headings named after Tarot cards, it mostly seems to be about two hours of characters endlessly meandering, searching, and wandering around city streets. read more...

The Hired Hand (1971)

Only two years after Once Upon a Time in the West (1969), Henry Fonda's son Peter directed and starred in a kind of arty Western that only could have been made in the early 70s and in the wake of Easy Rider. Photographed by Vilmos Zsigmond, the stunningly beautiful The Hired Hand is one of the great, underrated films of the 70s. Peter Fonda and Warren Oates play a couple of drifters who ride around until Fonda finally decides after seven years to go back home to his wife. As director, Fonda concentrates on rhythms and moods more so than on plot, and the lovely cinematography certainly helps. read more...
