Hostiles (2018)

Director Scott Cooper, whose Crazy Heart was like catnip for Oscar voters, now seemingly tries to take on something close to Dances With Wolves, an epic (i.e. very long) Western that supposedly has some feel for American Indians as human beings rather than as villains or savages. He casts some of the very best actors around, like Wes Studi, Adam Beach, and Q'orianka Kilcher, as Indians and then gives them nothing to do but sort of sit around, stare, and look noble. (It wants to be a very pro-Indian movie, but has very little use for them.) The main character is, of course, a white man, Capt. Joseph J. Blocker (Christian Bale), who hates Indians, but who gets the order to escort chief Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) and his family back to Montana, where the terminally ill old chief can die in peace on his own land; the president himself (a real one) has signed the order for it. Along the way, Blocker discovers a woman, Rosalee Quaid (Rosamund Pike), whose family has been ruthlessly slaughtered by Comanche, and takes her along on the quest. They also pick up a white soldier (Ben Foster) accused of brutally killing Indians, but who claims that he's innocent. A bunch of other great actors appear in smaller roles, but barely register. There are attacks and and slayings, and eventually Blocker learns to get over his prejudice. Cooper has a taste for outdoor cinematography, and the specific sights and sounds of Westerns, and there are a great many chunks of Hostiles in which one can get satisfyingly lost. But then some terrible idea or some hackneyed action sequence comes in and ruins it. John Ford attempted this kind of thing years ago, in both The Searchers and Cheyenne Autumn, with far richer, more poetic results. read more...

    Pawn Sacrifice (2015)

    Director Edward Zwick is pretty much an invention of the movie business. Ever since the inception of the Oscars, studios have divided their investments between movies that will hopefully make money, and movies that will hopefully make them look good. Oftentimes a genuinely great filmmaker will make a genuinely great film that actually gets noticed, but just in case, directors like Zwick are needed. Whereas a genuinely great director makes a great film from his soul, Zwick makes films based on what other great films might look like. However, his new movie, Pawn Sacrifice, somehow feels more like a struggle than a statement, and it's arguably his best movie in a couple of decades. read more...

      Babel (2006)

      Writer Guillermo Arriaga and director Alejandro González Inarritu team up once again for another portrait of society's social ills, this one even longer and less enjoyable than Amores Perros or 21 Grams. Skillfully made, but preachy as all get-out, the film crosses four stories. read more...
