The Circle (2000)

Just a few weeks ago, the Shooting Gallery film series released Marziyeh Meshkini's and Mohsen Makhmalbaf's The Day I Became a Woman. I was afraid then that no one would see that beautiful and vibrant film because it seemed to be about "battered Iranian women," though it was really about their breathtaking attempts to escape domination. Now comes Jafar Panahi's The Circle, a far more heavyweight, but equally brilliant film about women whose escape seems unlikely. read more...

Through a Glass Darkly (1961)

After the worldwide success of The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries, the very hot Ingmar Bergman turned to a trio of films to try to ask some complicated questions about religion and faith. The results are Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Winter Light (1962) and The Silence (1963), and each is better than the one before. read more...

A Story from Chikamatsu (1954)

As Kenji Mizoguchi becomes slightly more and more recognized not only as one of the great masters of Japanese cinema, but as one of the great masters of world cinema, his films have been trickling out into American markets. Made the same year as his much better known Sansho the Bailiff (1954), A Story from Chikamatsu easily ranks as one of the director's greatest, and its appearance on Criterion Blu-ray in 2018 is cause for cheers. read more...

Ida (2014)

I first learned of Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski in 2001 when I saw his Last Resort as part of the Shooting Gallery series. I missed his next movie, My Summer of Love, released three years later. Eight years later, I caught his next one, The Woman in the Fifth, on DVD. And now here is Ida. From what we can tell, Pawlikowski makes movies that are less than 90 minutes, when possible, and yet they unfold slowly, building atmosphere. He's an interesting director, but based on what I hd seen, I never would have expected anything as great as Ida on the horizon. From its first few frames, it's clear that this is an incredible movie, truly mesmerizing. I think it's a near-masterpiece, at least. read more...
