    The Monuments Men (2014)

    George Clooney's fifth directorial outing, The Monuments Men, was pulled from its awards season release so that its editing would not have to be rushed. And indeed, the final product feels pretty relaxed... perhaps a bit too relaxed. Maybe some rushing would have helped. read more...

      NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014)

      Jeremy Whelehan's documentary NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage tells the story of the world tour of Sam Mendes' production of Richard III, starring Kevin Spacey. It looks like it would have been a hell of a show in real life, but the documentary leaves me with several troubling reactions. read more...

        Danny Says (2016)

        Danny Says charts an incredible bit of musical history, as seen by Danny Fields: from The Velvet Underground (and Andy Warhol and Nico) and The Doors in the late 1960s to the Ramones in the mid-1970s, with lots of great stuff in-between. We hear stories about Jim Morrison getting very high and naked (for the curious, Danny comments on the size of Morrison's junk), and stories of how Danny managed to get two outrageous Detroit bands, the MC5 and the Stooges, signed to a major label at one time. I loved hearing a recording of an enthusiastic Lou Reed talking about hearing the Ramones for the first time, and about how the Ramones agreed to let the Talking Heads open for them because they were "no good." Danny's interviews are more coherent in archival footage than in the new footage, but he still manages to mention how he was grudgingly involved with the Edgar Winter Group and proudly not involved with Aerosmith. Danny was there for all of it, though it's sometimes unclear just what he was doing. Sometimes he appears to have just been a hanger-on or a minor record-company liaison, but other times he's a decisive manager, or even a rock journalist. In any case, he's something of a peripheral figure, like a punk rock Forrest Gump; it's too bad that Danny Says couldn't have been clearer or more playful with this storyline. In the end, director Brendan Toller seems to be saying that Danny was not a sell-out, and that's awesome, but a little more would have been great. Danny Says opens September 30, 2016 at the Roxie Cinema in San Francisco. read more...

          The Queen (2006)

          Stephen Frears (Dirty Pretty Things, Mrs. Henderson Presents) directs and Helen Mirren (Last Orders, Gosford Park) stars as the Queen of England, but this is no dry costume epic. Rather, it's ripped right out of the headlines of 1997, when public opinion began to hold sway over the centuries-old traditions of the monarchy. The extraordinarily popular Tony Blair (Michael Sheen) has been Prime Minister for only a few months when, on August 31, the much-beloved Princess Diana is killed in a car crash. Queen Elizabeth II (Mirren) insists upon following decorum and keeping the death in the family without making a public spectacle. And besides, why should the Queen make a fuss when Diana wasn't even a member of the Royal Family anymore? Craftily written by Peter Morgan (who also wrote the current The Last King of Scotland), the bulk of the film consists of careful tête-à-têtes between Blair and his Queen; he becomes ever more enthralled with her, while she discovers a chink in her armor. She slowly senses something has changed about the world, which might require a different approach. James Cromwell is wonderful as Prince Philip, whose solution to everything is to go stag hunting. Frears includes plenty of pixilated video archival footage to give the film a kind of newsy immediacy; the characters, additionally, spend a great deal of time in front of the tube. But Frears energizes and modulates the film well, giving Mirren plenty of moments to quietly shine. Mirren has already attracted awards buzz for her performance, and she deserves it. read more...

          The Big Trail (1930)

          The Big Trail (1930) is an essential item in any history of the American Western for two reasons. The first is that it was John Wayne's starring debut, and the second is that it introduced a widescreen process called "Fox Grandeur." However, both of those things failed with the immense, costly failure of the movie. Wayne would slink back to the purgatory of bad "B" movies for nine more years (until Stagecoach), and widescreen movies didn't show up again until 1958. Part of the high cost is that many scenes were filmed twice, once for the 35mm camera and once for the 70mm camera. Comparisons of certain shots show that landscapes were better served by the bigger format and that close-ups were more complete in the smaller format (they were cropped for the wide format). Director Raoul Walsh's compositions are amazing, using clutter and landscape and space to fascinatingly emotional effect. (It was far too expensive and troublesome to actually move a camera.) However, the storytelling is leaden and numbingly slow, relying heavily on dialogue to dole out information. Subsequently, the actors are stuck performing as if in a community theater play. Walsh picked up the pieces and made another movie with Wayne ten years later, Dark Command (1940), and then made a much more psychologically nuanced Western, Pursued (1947). read more...
