Monrovia, Indiana (2018)

The great documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman returns with this look at a small town in America's heartland. It's presumably an attempt to find out what makes Trump supporters tick, though politics are rarely mentioned, and such an attempt would probably be futile anyway. Instead, Wiseman does what he does best, observing the residents of Monrovia doing what they do. There are city council meetings, peeks inside a gun shop and a tattoo parlor, and the film admires the crops of corn that seem to be the center of the town's business. The camera looks at a pizza parlor, and in a most disturbing moment, a veterinary clinic (where a dog undergoes surgery). As usual, there is no narration, are no issues tackled, and no arguments made one way or the other. Wiseman is the master of "fly-on-the-wall" filmmaking, getting his camera so close and so unobtrusive, that none of his subjects ever seem to be aware that he's even there. They just talk as if no camera were present. His selection of scenes paints a portrait of a small town, both dignified and respectful, but also a little depressing. Regardless, everyone in America should be watching Wiseman regularly; he's a national treasure. read more...

Finding Vivian Maier (2014)

First off, there are the photographs. Even if you're an amateur shutterbug, it's clear that the photos are masterworks. As others have accurately described, they have a certain joy, pain, openness, and curiosity that should have made the photographer a star. But she died totally unknown. read more...

Serenade for Haiti (2017)

All the way back in 2000, I fell in love with a movie called Night Waltz: The Music of Paul Bowles and went to meet with its maker, a young director by the name of Owsley Brown, who struck me with his extraordinary intelligence and empathy. It has been a long time since I saw another of Brown's movies, and here it is: Serenade for Haiti, which is every bit as sad and beautiful as its predecessor. read more...

Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. (1999)

Errol Morris has carved his niche with films about freaks and losers: the pet cemetery owners in Gates of Heaven (1978), the innocent man on death row in The Thin Blue Line (1988), palsied scientist Steven Hawking in A Brief History of Time (1992), and four strange men trying to tame nature in Fast, Cheap & Out of Control (1997). But Fred Leuchter is his strangest subject by far, which renders Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred Leuchter Jr. Morris' most potent film, his masterpiece. The year 2000 will be hard-pressed to come up with a better film than this. It's already a candidate for my list of the best films of the year. read more...
